It’s been a long time since I tasted anything made by Green & Black’s so finding this Crispy Milk chocolate bar in the ‘reduced price’ section of a local supermarket seemed like a prompt for me to reacquaint myself with their chocolate.
In typical Green & Black’s style, the vast majority of the ingredients for this bar are either organic, Fairtrade or both. The ‘crispy’ part of this bar is made up from five different organic grains and the chocolate has a healthy 37% cacao content. As you can see, there’s plenty of crunch in the bar, which works really well with the sweet milk chocolate.
In many ways this bar is a tastier, better made version of similar milk chocolate/crispy bits bars. The higher cacao content obviously makes for a better tasting chocolate, and the cereal does exactly what it’s supposed to. It’s crisp, crunchy and adds both texture and subtle flavour to the mix.
I’m not a big milk chocolate eater but I found myself going back to this bar, which is probably the best recommendation you can make. The organic & Fairtrade content plus Green & Black’s wide availability also make this one of the more accessible bars I have reviewed recently.
If you like your milk chocolate then you really owe it to yourself to go for something with a higher cacao content, and this is a good place to start.
