As far as I can tell, this is the same 25% milk chocolate (with vegetable fat) and filling (primarily glucose syrup) used in the bar, and it’s really quite bad. It’s very, sweet and very sickly.
Which is why it boggles me that this product even exists. Clearly it’s going for the ‘after dinner mint’ market, but if you present this garish pink box after a dinner party, I can pretty much guarantee your friends will never speak to you again.
Admittedly, the format of these ‘Thins’ gives a slightly better (and less sticky) experience than in the bar format, but everything about them just screams “I couldn’t be bothered”. So my advice is not to be bothered and avoid these entirely.
If you’re looking for a more sophisticated after dinner sweetie that won’t prompt your guests to disown you, I recommend the Bendicks ‘Bitters’ range. Proper 95% dark chocolate with strong, refreshing flavours (as opposed to a lingering chemical aftertaste that you get with these things).
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a box of pink yuckiness to dispose off.
