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 Chocolate Tour’s chocolate subscription boxes offer a wonderful and fun way of discovering a range of delicious artisan 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 ‘Monthly Theme’ 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 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 first week of the month. Please read the ‘Shipping & Delivery’ tab for full details.

Each month includes:

– A curated selection of 5 artisan 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 first week of each month
– FREE chocolate for your birthday! (you will receive a free chocolate bar added to your regular delivery during your birthday 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.

Please note that the photos on this page show an example of products in each box, not actual contents.

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?

 Your chocolate box will be send out on the first 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 you 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 1st Monday of the following month. Your next payment is due on the 23rd of that month.

For example:
You sign up on the 6th July, you get send a chocolate box straight away, and your next payment is due on 23rd July. You will receive your next box on the 1st Monday in August. But if you have signed up on the 11th July your first chocolate box will be send out on the 1st Monday in August, and your next payment isn’t due until 23rd August.

Monthly Theme

Monthly Theme

Sweet & Salty (February 2020)

Chocolate has been compared to many things, one of them is LOVE. Every relationship is a balance between highs and lows. It is what makes a relationship strong, and exciting. So what better way to celebrate love then to explore the delicate balance between sweet chocolate and salty flavours? Some ingredients used this month might be considered to have a Japanese influence…

Boxes are sent out on 3rd February, but if you wont be home that week I can sent it at a later date, just email kim@thechocolatetour.co.nz to arrange.

Deadline for orders: 28th January 2020

    One of my most favourite things about starting a new month! I love experiencing all the amazing chocolates and reading the card/note Rosa has written about each theme.

  2. Sarah Fordham

    Such a lovely treat to get every month! Always full of exciting new flavours from amazing Kiwi chocolatiers!

  3. Sandra Boston

    I adore receiving my monthly box. I cannot see a time where I will want to cancel, I’ve discovered some amazing chocolatiers and have even gone on to purchase more of the product I discovered in the boxes.

  4. sarahronchetti

    Receiving my monthly chocolate delivery is a highlight – what is not to love about a hand picked, carefully curated selection of chocolates! But beware, you’ll want to buy and try all the other products from the NZ chocolatiers included!

  5. jullienmarion

    Absolutely love the concept. Discovering new chocolates each month is a true pleasure, and the selection is always fab! It feels each time as if I am getting a gift…The packaging is so nice! I appreciate the stories behind each chocolates and being able to see where they come from on the New Zealand map. You can feel the work that goes behind each box. Very good value!
