With Christmas fast approaching we're all looking for something different to gift. Something personal? No matter how much you try to plan ahead theres always one that proves incredibly hard to buy for. I recently stumbled across Yucoco, a handmade chocolate creations company which allows you to create your own chocolate bars online in a matter of minutes. Yucoco was formed by three chocoholics, no longer excited by the bars on the shelves. They searched wide to source the best Belgian chocolate, ethically sourced the cocoa beans and even make the majority of their toppings in their own kitchen. There are hundreds of toppings available to top the four chocolate bar choices (Divine Dark, Marvellous Milk, Wicked White & Terrific Trio) for endless combinations. 

For my ever so creatively named.... The December Bar* I decided on the Wicked white chocolate slab (120g), made with 28% cocoa butter, pure bourbon vanilla & customised with five toppings of Cinder Toffee, Cinnamon Crunch, Chocolate Popping Candy, Cranberries and a sprinkle of Glitter. I'm usually one to avoid white chocolate, it's either super sweet or tastes a little chalky. Who knows what made me pick white over my preferred dark but I'm glad it did. Wicked White really is the creamiest of white chocolate I've tasted, thick dreamy slabs of chocolate with the perfect snap and paired so well with my wintery toppings. The opposite side of the bar has the Yucoco logo embossed, more presentable than other companies I've tried as well as coming wrapped in plastic & fastened in a book style box compared to sleeves. Once you've finished creating your bar a name is required. Again, I settled for The December Bar, fitting within the 15 characters - The and Bar aren't part of your 15 characters. This is then printed onto a label along with a list of toppings and short message. 

The final price of my customised bar came to £7.20, £4 being the bar of chocolate and toppings ranging from 40p to 80p each. I wouldn't place orders each week but for birthdays and other gift giving occasions I would most definitely place future orders with such an array of options and fast delivery - my bar arrived under 48 hours.

  1. So basically you make your own dream chocolate bar? I am off to investigate, I'm wondering if it might be a good Christmas present idea?
