There are seemingly endless options when it comes to finding the best sweet treat. When I came across Guilty Chocolates, I was immediately drawn in thanks to the beautiful design and branding.

Guilty Chocolates has 12 different flavors to choose from, but I ultimately went with Guilty Road and Roasted Envy. I wanted to try out both a milk chocolate and a dark chocolate, and they were both divine.

Guilty Road is an exquisite confection that artfully combines the rich, creamy texture of milk chocolate with the distinct, crunchy nuttiness of hazelnuts. This chocolate bar stands out for its ingenious mix of textures and flavors, blending the smoothness of milk chocolate with the satisfying crunch of hazelnuts and wafers. The addition of marshmallows introduces a soft, chewy element that contrasts beautifully with the crispiness of the wafer, creating a delightful sensory experience. What makes Guilty Road truly unique, however, is the inclusion of Turkish delight, a gem that adds a soft, jelly-like texture and a subtle rosewater flavor that elevates the entire concoction. The combination of these elements results in a symphony of flavors that dances on the palate, offering a luxurious and indulgent experience that is hard to forget.

Roasted Envy is a masterpiece of dark Belgian chocolate, known for its deep, intense cocoa flavors that appeal to the sophisticated palate. This bar is a celebration of dark chocolate’s inherent richness, enhanced by the inclusion of pistachios and coconut flakes. The pistachios provide a savory nuttiness that complements the bitter notes of the dark chocolate, while the coconut flakes add a tropical sweetness and a delightful crunch. This thoughtful melange achieves a perfect balance between salty and sweet with the added texture of the nuts and flakes, infusing each bite with layers of discovery. Being gluten-free and vegan-friendly, Roasted Envy caters to a wide audience, including those with specific dietary needs or preferences. Roasted Envy is an exemplary representation of how quality ingredients and mindful composition can create a chocolate bar that is both luxurious and accessible, offering a deeply satisfying and guilt-free indulgence.

Some of the other flavors that I had my eye on were the Raspberry Revenge and Pineapple Express. The Raspberry Revenge has white chocolate with freeze-dried raspberry and balsamic vinegar, while the Pineapple Express has dark chocolate with naturally dried pineapple and rose petals. I don’t typically opt for fruity chocolates, but with the others being as amazing as they were, I am sure these will be phenomenal, too. I will certainly be ordering these and reporting back ASAP. 

I love the messaging behind Guilty Chocolates. I find the play on words with “guilty” so fun and clever. I never bought into the negative connotation surrounding dessert and modern diet culture, so it is very refreshing to see a brand that is unapologetically reframing the ‘guilt’ we are supposed to feel when we have a luxurious treat like Guilty Chocolates.

Guilty Chocolates has quickly become my favorite place to order my after dinner treats. I will be trying out their bundled sets next so that I can try more flavors altogether! Visit their website here.
