Magnum Espresso Signature Dark Chocolate Thins

I first noticed the Magnum "Thins" range in WH Smiths last year, at full price they're £3.50 a box, which is a lot for 180g of chocolate when it's a mainstream brand like Magnum. I suspected they would eventually get reduced, and at last, they have! They're now half price at £1.74 a box, which includes the Mint and Milk Chocolate varieties.

Lifting off the outer box I was met with the above...they're very well presented and definitely give an illusion of poshness.

The box contains "Coffee Flacoured Dark Chocolate Discs with Cocoa Nibs", all of them with a large Magnum "M" logo printed on. The chocolate contains 50% cocoa solids, so they're not really true dark chocolates but semisweet or "plain chocolate".

They tasted nice enough, but not outstanding and I certainly would've felt ripped off paying £3.50 for a box. They have a nice richness from both the cocoa nibs and coffee extract, but they're a bit lacking in the coffee department to be quite honest...it just wasn't as strong as I'd have liked. Still, these were nice enough chocolates, I just wouldn't have been happy paying full price for them.

Overall, these Magnum Espresso Dark Chocolate Thins are okay, but not outstanding and I wouldn't recommend them in particular. Stick to the chocolate bars instead which are far better value for money.

7 out of 10.
