Hugo’s Chocolate Club: Chocolate Subscription Box *

We’ve had beauty subscription boxes, time of the month subscription boxes and stationery subscription boxes. There’s pretty much a subscription box for anything you could possibly want these days. Today I’m featuring a subscription box (you’d probably guessed that already otherwise all this talk of subscription boxes has been pretty pointless) that caters for those with a sweet tooth and the chocolate lovers among us which, let’s face it, is more or less all of us right? A chocolate subscription box?! That’s right baby! Our dreams really have come true. 

Hugo’s Chocolate Club* is a chocolate subscription box service which provides 4 different artisan chocolates a month which come in various forms such as bars, truffles, bon-bons and more. They’re £22 a month or £63 for a 3 month subscription, £120 for a 6 month subscription or £228 for a year’s subscription. With more savings a month, the longer the subscription you purchase.

Each month, the 4 different chocolates featured are from 4 different producers so you can guarantee you’re going to get 4 widely different types of chocolate. They also come with biographies about the makers of each chocolate as well as tasting guides to aid you in getting the optimum experience when trying your chocolates.

Now, onto my box and what goodies I got in it. I was pretty confident that with a chocolate subscription box I was going to like more or less everything in it but I was quite surprised by the range of different styles and flavours of chocolate. You really do get a good range so let’s show you some of them!

Duffy’s Fine Milk Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs & Oak Smoked Salt

I’m not going to pretend that I know what Oak Smoked Salt is because I don’t but what I do know is that this one was definitely my favourite of the bunch. I’m a fan of salt in sweet things anyway, such as salted caramel but this had a really stunning unique taste. It’s not stingy on the salt either, you definitely know that there’s salt in there right from the first bite but it actually compliments the chocolate extremely well and adds another tasty element to it.

Coco Chocolatier Honey Milk Chocolate

This one was my least favourite and I’ll probably leave this for someone else to enjoy, quite simply because I don’t like honey. It’s a taste I really can’t get my head around and although I knew going into this chocolate that there was honey in it, I wasn’t expecting it to be quite so prominent. Which, if you like honey, is a really good thing! But unfortunately for me, I don’t. That’s not to say this isn’t a lovely chocolate bar though and I thought the packaging of this one was really cute.

Kneals Chocolates Raspberry Delight

My oh my, this one really was a delight. First and foremost, you can instantly tell this is a really high quality and luxury bar of chocolate. It’s dark chocolate which was an absolute bonus for me because I adore dark chocolate and don’t eat nowhere near enough of it. The inside of the chocolate when you bite into it is super creamy and the dried raspberry flakes on top are really sharp and bitter which compliments everything else nicely. As someone who loves raspberry and loves dark chocolate, this one was a huge hit for me!

The Chocolate Cottage Truffles

These two were really flavorsome like, it kinda knocks you back a bit. The pink ones are Eton Mess flavored and I can’t compare them to actual Eton Mess because I’ve never had it but I assume this is what it tastes like. My boyfriend said he can imagine this one as a dessert in a restaurant, it was that good. There’s a lot of filling in these small truffles and the flavours do pack a punch. The yellow one was Lemon Meringue Pie flavor and I can vouch for this that it actually does taste like lemon meringue or a lemon cheesecake. It’s very lemony and very sharp but really yummy.

So, as chocolate subscription boxes go, I was impressed. I loved the variety of types of chocolates and flavours and the fact that they’re all sourced from UK producers and the box gives 4 different chocolate makers a chance to shine each month. The quality is definitely there and I think a one off box would make a lovely gift for someone in your life who loves their chocolate for Christmas.

Have you ever tried a chocolate subscription box? Which of these 4 would you like to try the most? Let me know!

  1. I would try the milk chocolate bar and the honey chocolate bar. I’m not a fan of raspberry with chocolate or dark chocolate, but atheistically, it did look good.

  2. Oh wow this definitely sounds like a subscription box I can get behind! I think I may treat myself as long as I can specify that I want to receive milk chocolate only.

  3. Wow I didn’t even know chocolate subscription boxes existed!! All of the above look delicious too. Might need to try it out!

  4. Oh wow! This looks like such a great subscription box, had never heard of this company before but these would be such a nice gift too. I’m the same as you, I love salt and sweet flavours together so that first bar sounds amazing. I also love raspberries so I’d love to try the Kneales bar! Thanks for sharing Jenny – once payday rolls around, I may treat myself xx

  5. I have tried a chocolate subscription before, can’t recall the name but I only had one box and didn’t really rate it so I cancelled it. Those bars sound lovely though and the truffles sound soooo good! I love handmade truffles! 🙂 x

  6. Those truffles look incredible! Sometimes I wish I would have taught myself to make them just so I can have them whenever I wanted but I don’t even think I can make something that looks that good! I’m not too sure about that Oak smoked salt though, that one seems a little bit much for me!

  7. A chocolate subscription box?! That sounds incredible, a dream! I loove the sound of the chocolate cottage truffles – the lemon meringue ones sound amazing. I love lemon cheesecake, it’s one of my favourites so it sounds like something I would really enjoy. I really want some chocolate now after reading this post! 😂

  9. Hugo’s chocolate sounds so strange to me because I keep thinking of the little doggy treats in my drawer. I’m sure all of this tasted a million times nicer than those do. Oak sounds like such an interesting flavour, I don’t think I’ve had anything like that before. I love pretty much all raspberry chocolate too. This box sounds great…now I’m hungry (I have chocolate for a post in my house and I haven’t taken photos yet, pray for my self control please) x

  10. I’ve never tried a chocloke subscription box before but it looks really yummy! I like that you get a good variety of different flavours, it’s also great that they are from all different brands as well, grest post x

  11. This subscription box sounds like the dream! Those Chocolate Cottage Truffles look delicious. I would love to try the one that tastes like lemon cheesecake, my favourite! You get such a great range of quality chocolate for a really good price. I agree, a one off box would be a perfect Christmas gift for someone. Thanks for sharing Jenny! ❤ xx

  12. I tried the subscription box by Hotel Chocolat for a while, which was great because you can specify what type of chocolate you like, but I also think it’s good that with this one, you try chocolate from different companies.
    I think my favourite from this list would be the lemon, followed by the raspberry. My least favourite would be the one with salt, because I can’t deal with salt and sweet things together, but I definitely agree it’s a good way to try new things out.
