Divine Fairtrade Caramel Milk Chocolate Bar Review
Whilst in Tesco Express recently I was mulling over which two chocolate bars to buy since they had a special offer on. It was either a Snickers Duo, or try something new! I went for this Divine Caramel Milk Chocolate and wasn't sure what to expect as I've never really paid attention to Divine chocolate before. I was pleasantly surprised to find this bar was very delicious, in fact it's head and shoulders above most of the chocolates on offer at Tesco Express!
I ate it as soon as I left the store, hence the poor quality pic above!
The chocolate is of course fair trade which is what Divine are known for, and unlike most of the chocolates in Tesco Express (I'm looking at you Dairy Milk, Kitkat and Snickers!) it contains ZERO vegetable fats - hurrah! This is important to me because vegetable fats are a cheap filler and also damaging to health, plus palm oil is unsustainable. So finding chocolate that doesn't contain any is always a plus in my book! (for more info on the problems with palm oil, check out Green Peace).
The bar contained a smooth caramel flavoured filling - it wasn't gooey caramel but rather a caramel flavoured cream. That might sound disappointing, but it was actually very delicious! It tasted smooth, buttery and creamy and felt very indulgent. I enjoyed it immensely and soon wolfed down the whole bar.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this Divine Caramel Milk Chocolate - it's an indulgent bar at a reasonable price, plus it's fairly traded and sustainable - what more could you want?
My recommendation to chocolate and caramel lovers: give these a try, you won't be disappointed!
