I’ve always loved dark chocolate, and this is Green & Black’s 70% exception. I can’t understand how some people claim not to like it. I can only think they’re eating it wrong.
Good quality dark chocolate should be eaten slowly and allowed to melt in the mouth one chunk at a time. It’s about flavour and texture, not quantity.
Which is why I bought the biggest bar of this I could. Green & Black’s Dark is 70% cocoa solids & cocoa butter. Apparently the cocoa butter is there to coat each individual cocoa and sugar particle, allowing the chocolate to melt beautifully and cleanly in the mouth, revealing intense, bittersweet chocolate aromas. Well it certainly works for me.
The chocolate is smooth without the ‘grainy’ texture that dark chocolate sometimes has, and the flavour is divine. Not too bitter, not too sweet.
Green & Black’s (now owned by Cadbury) make all their chocolate from organically grown beans. I have no idea if this is what makes the chocolate so delicious, or if it’s just that they keep their products simple and take a genuine pride in producing high quality chocolate.
Whatever their secret, it works for me. Highly recommended.
PS. If anyone from Green & Black’s is reading this, do feel free to send us some samples to review. Please. ;-)
