Green & Black’s Hazelnut & Currant

Green & Black’s Hazelnut & CurrantI’ve never been the biggest fan of Green & Black’s. It’s always seemed like a fairly average chocolate masquerading as something a bit posh. That’s not to say I don’t like it – just that I’d usually rather spend the money on something else.

However, being a professional chocolate eater, it’s my duty to buy and consume every bar I see in the shop. It’s a tough job.

The good news is, I was pleasantly surprised by this bar. It’s really quite tasty.

The cocoa content of the dark chocolate isn’t particularly high (60%), but that’s no bad thing, as this bar is so moreish, you’ll end up eating it all in one go if you don’t restrain yourself.Green & Black’s Hazelnut & Currant

The hazelnuts and currants pieces are small (unlike the whole nuts you might find in something like Cadbury Fruit & Nut), but they work perfectly. The nuts give a slight crunch to the texture, and the currants give a nice chewiness and have a rich, full flavour and a natural sweetness that complements the chocolate perfectly.

In the end, I did end up eating most of this bar in one go – but I did it without noticing. In fact, this entire review is based on the one final chunk I had left when I realised what I’d done.

Whether the fact that you can eat a whole bar without noticing is a good thing or not is debatable. But I’ll certainly be buying this again – although I suspect I may not notice I’ve bought it until I find the wrapper in the bin.

  1. I know the feeling about reviewing chocolate when you’re on your last piece, I’ve finished things a few times before realising I haven’t actually typed a review up about it yet. D’oh!

  2. Also, being able to eat 300g of chocolate without really realising it, is not a good thing my friend.
