UPDATE: The Chocolate Factory is no longer in business.

I was contacted by a new company in Seoul called The Chocolate Factory. Chocolate has been getting big in Seoul. But this company offers something different–

Dark chocolate with Brazil nuts, Reese’s Pieces, banana chips, cookie dough, and Pop Rocks. Most of those are hard to get in Korea.

The custom bars are limited to five topping just out of the laws of physics.

Jian couldn’t resist checking it out. I had fun getting a video of her first Pop Rocks experience.

Now, if you are like I am, you have a hard time making decisions, they also have a list of “favorites” to choose from.

  • Yummy Combo (dark chocolate, mini pretzels, M&Ms, cookie dough, rice crunch)
  • Dark Berries (dark chocolate, dried cherries, dried blueberries, dried cranberries, raisins)
  • Cloudy Bear Bar (milk chocolate, Teddy Grahams, mini marshmallows)
  • Nutholic (dark chocolate, pecans, walnuts,  cashews, hazelnuts)
  • Cinderella Bar (white chocolate, pumpkin seeds, gogi berries, pecans)
  • Super Peanut Bar (milk chocolate, peanuts, peanut pieces, peanut M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces)

Or you can get a random bar where they make the choices for you.

I ordered the Wa Bar (milk chocolate, Oreo pieces, cocoa nibs, chocolate coffee).

This was definitely a grown-up bar. It was dark, dark, dark choco-coffee goodness. EJ ended up claiming this one.

These bars are big and can last you a while. The create-your-own bars start at W5,000 plus W250-1,300 per topping. The favorites go between W6,900 and W10,300.

They’re a young company, and they are frequently running discount specials. You can even order them in bulk.

This is one company I’m going to order from again.
