Green & Blacks THIN Milk Chocolate 37% Cocoa
Green & Blacks recently launched a range of "THIN" chocolate bars, amongst them flavours such as Salted Caramel (which I reviewed previously), Dark, Mint and this 37% Milk. The range is currently on offer for £1.50 at most Tesco Express stores.
This Milk variety contains 37% cocoa solids, which is a little higher than the average milk chocolate. As with all G&B chocolates all the ingredients are organic and they use raw cane sugar, giving a more "rustic" flavour. The squares are fairly large, and I found two to be a nice amount for a cocoa fix.
The chocolate was very flavoursome, much richer than regular G&B milk chocolate and Lindt's Creamy Milk chocolate. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it, I was expecting it to be very milky but instead the milk took a back seat and the cocoa flavours were more prominent. As a fan of rich milk chocolates from the likes of Hotel Chocolat I was really pleased by this! I found a few squares very satisfying, but that's not to say I couldn't have easily eaten the whole bar!
Overall, I think the range of THIN chocolates from G&B are excellent, I haven't tasted a bad one so far and I hope they stick around. I'm still excited to try the Mint variety which contains crunchy mint chips - it's a little hard to find though!
