Sainsbury's Taste The Difference Swiss Pistachio Milk Chocolate


When I bought this "Swiss Milk Chocolate with Pistachio" bar from Sainsbury's recently I wasn't expecting much. I don't know why but I always assume most supermarket brand chocolates are much poorer versions of what companies such as Lindt produce, but at a cheaper price. The only difference that piqued my curiosity with this bar was the fact it contains pistachio, which is an uncommon flavour amongst most mainstream chocolates.

Opening the wrapper, it looked rather plain and unassuming, although smelled very nutty and delicious.


Cutting into it revealed something a bit more exciting. Each blocked contained a whole pistachio atop a layer of pistachio praline cream:


It tasted very delicious. The chocolate was smooth and rich, and the praline cream was rich, nutty, and very addictive. The crunchiness from the pistachios made it even more so. It did get a little sickly after one two many blocks, but I still enjoyed it a lot. It's probably one for sharing rather than gobbling all to yourself, as I often do!

Overall, I would highly recommend this bar if you like nutty chocolates, it's excellent quality for the price and just as good as brands such as Lindt.

Price: £1.39 at Sainsbury's.
Ingredients: Suitable for vegetarians.
Allergy advice: Contains milk and nuts.

  2. I love this chocolate too much! My local sainburys seems to not be restocking it. M&S do one that is identical but costs 30p more.

  4. Been trying to hunt this chocolate down as M & S did one with "New" on the wrapper. Only found it in outlets, I must have bought their entire stock and cannot find any in their stores so to find out there is one by Sainsburys is great.
