A Flavors Review of Chill Chocolate Bars

Chill cannabis-infused chocolate bar in Cappuccino Crunch flavor.

Chill Chocolate Bar - Cappuccino Crunch

$10 / 100mg THC per bar

Coffee-lovers, rejoice. The Cappuccino Crunch was a standout flavor that delivered a solid buzz along with the 10mg THC in each square. 

The creamy milk chocolate is studded with a satisfying crunch of crushed espresso beans, and the result was a realistic cappuccino flavor –think single shot, a spoonful of sugar, and a solid high.

A peppermint flavored Chill chocolate bar.

Chill Chocolate Bar - Peppermint

$10 / 100mg THC per bar 

Move over, Andes mints! The peppermint flavor truly delivers on its promise — the smooth milk chocolate is infused with not just CO2 extracted cannabis oil, but equally pure organic peppermint oil. 

We loved the contrasting mouthfeel–both luxurious as well as refreshingly minty. There’s surely some terpene synergy happening here, but we were a bit distracted by the delicious flavor! 

Chill's cannabis-infused chocolate bar in Açai Berry blast flavor.

Chill Chocolate Bar - Açai Berry Blast 

$10 / 50mg THC and 50mg CBD per bar 

We’re big fans of açai bowls, but didn’t know what to expect from the Açai Berry Blast. Well, health-food-phobes can rest at ease, because Chill didn’t hold off on indulgence here. 

We found the organic açai powder added a sweet, tart depth that complimented the rich cacao flavor. A fun surprise was the addition of other mixed berries, which gave good texture to the experience. 

An equal 1:1 THC to CBD ratio led to us eating a couple squares (a manageable 5mg of THC and CBD each) and the melting away of muscle tension and achy joints. 

A Cookie Jar flavored cannabis-infused chocolate bar from Chill.

Chill Chocolate Bar - Cookie Jar 

$10 / 100mg THC per bar 

White chocolate is a controversial one, but here’s a spicy take: if you enjoy hybrids, ambiguity, and complexity, why choose between vanilla and chocolate, when you can have white chocolate, the in-betweenest of the two? 

Pothead pontificating aside, the Cookie Jar flavor is the most decadent, adult take on cookies-and-cream yet. We were delighted by the creamy white chocolate, with crushed chocolate and cookies swirled in for the most satisfying bite ever. 

If it didn’t have a full 100mg of THC in the bar, we would have eaten it in one fell swoop. 

Classic Milk Chocolate flavored chocolate bar from Chill.

Chill Chocolate Bar - Milk Chocolate 

$10 / 100mg THC per bar 

Take it back to basics with a solid smooth milk chocolate. We weren’t expecting much, to be honest, having gotten used to 95% cacao in our hipster days, but we’ll be the first to tell you: milk chocolate’s where it’s at. 

Sweet, silky, and comforting, we realized this is why Chill goes with a milk chocolate base for all flavors. 

Milk chocolate and cannabis go together like nothing else, and it felt just right. A luscious melt-in-your-mouth that’s immediately reassuring in its nostalgic familiarity, and with premium ingredients, at that.
