Are you a chocolate lover, looking for your next taste sensation?

The Chocolate Tour’s chocolate subscription boxes are filled with extraordinary chocolatey goodness, from all over New Zealand, ready for you to explore! The Mini subscription boxes offer a great way to get introduced into the world of chocolate.

The Chocolate Tour’s chocolate subscription boxes offer a wonderful and fun way of discovering a range of delicious artisan and craft chocolate. But you won’t know what you are going to get until you open your box. The mystery is part of the fun! Each month the theme will be revealed via the newsletter and Facebook page/group. (or check out the ‘What’s in the box?’ tab). If you are intrigued then make sure you have signed up! However if the theme is not your thing then you can easily skip this month and re-join next month.

Each box includes a selection of full sized chocolate products, no little sample bags! An important value for The Chocolate Tour is that all products featured come from small artisan/craft chocolate makers and chocolatiers from around New Zealand. This ensures a high standard of fresh and quality chocolate. To ensure variety, different chocolatiers and chocolate makers are featured every few months.

Your subscription does not require a signup fee, and can easily be changed, paused, or cancelled at any time by logging into your account or emailing kim@thechocolatetour.co.nz

All chocolate subscription boxes are send via overnight courier during the last week of the month. Please read the ‘Shipping & Delivery’ tab for full details.

Each month includes:

– A curated selection of 3-4 (full size) artisan/craft chocolate products from around New Zealand
– Tasting notes to help you get the most out of your chocolates
– Access to an exclusive Facebook group for chocolate lovers
– FREE delivery to your home or work in the last week of each month

What kind of chocolate will I get?

The chocolate subscription boxes include a variety of full sized chocolate products. (no little samples, you get the full bar to enjoy). Such as: bean-to-bar chocolate tablets, filled chocolates, dipped chocolates, bonbons, truffles, and other chocolate creations. Most products are dark or milk chocolate varieties, with sometimes white or ruby chocolate products. Products are sourced from a range of great New Zealand chocolatiers and chocolate makers. As there are so many amazing chocolatiers in New Zealand I try to showcase different ones every month. Each month will follow a new theme to ensure you are experiencing different flavours and textures in every box.

What is artisan chocolate?

When talking about artisan chocolate, the focus is on the chocolate being made in small batches. Sometimes in limited edition flavours, but never mass produced. The chocolate makers and chocolatiers used are small businesses, and it feels great knowing that we can support such a specialized industry in our own backyard! You can read more about the difference between a chocolate maker and a chocolatier in my blog! 

What if I don’t like the chocolate I have received?

If there was an issue with your delivery, or you simply are not 100% satisfied, make sure to email kim@thechocolatetour.co.nz with your feedback and to receive a credit voucher for your next order. (credit value will vary depending on the issue experienced)

What if I have allergies?

If you have an allergy or any special dietary requirements please email me on kim@thechocolatetour.co.nz I can often make substitutes to ensure chocolate subscription boxes are suitable for allergies and special diets.

Because the chocolatiers and chocolate makers featured are small businesses, some of them will use the same equipment to process multiple types of ingredients. Therefor some trace amounts may still be present. Please ensure you clarify how sensitive your allergy is so that I can provide you with suitable products.

How does this work?

Chocolate subscription boxes will be send out on the last Monday of the month. There is no sign-up fee and no minimum term. You can log into your account at any time to change, pause, or cancel your subscription. You pay for your first month when you sign up. If you have signed up before the 10th of the month you will receive your first box straight away (depending on stock levels). And your next payment is due on the 23rd to cover next month. But if you sign up after the 10th of the month your box will be send out on the last Monday of that same month. Your next payment would be due the following month for that month’s delivery.

For example:
You sign up on the 6th July, you get send a chocolate box straight away (which would technically be June’s chocolate), and your next payment is due on 23rd July to receive a box at the end of July again. But if you have signed up on the 11th July your first chocolate box will be send out on the last Monday in July, and your next payment isn’t due until 23rd August, with a delivery end of August.

    I bought this as a treat for my husband who totally appreciates fine chocolate. It’s fun watching him open the courier package each month. He loves the monthly surprises and delights in reading the descriptions and write-ups about each chocolate that are in each box – they really add to the enjoyment and anticipation! The monthly chocolate subscription has become his special treat just for him and he’s said more than once that it’s absolutely an “essential” purchase. Thanks Kim!
