I’ve become a bit of a chocolate snob. In years gone by I would have been satisfied with any old thing, good or otherwise, but then I started appreciating that decent chocolate was just so much better than the cheap stuff. In the cheap chocolate you can really taste the sugar and not much else. But good chocolate is creamier and more delicious.
Nowadays I’d rather spend the same amount of money on something I like and get a smaller amount than get more cheap chocolate.
A couple of years ago I discovered Green & Blacks organic creamy vanilla white chocolate but it’s not stocked in many places so it wasn’t something I indulged in very often. We are spoiled here with Haigh’s though, so if I want something yummy I’ll go there.
Imagine my joy when I went shopping in my local supermarket and found the 35g pack of the Green & Blacks vanilla chocolate. It’s become a weekly purchase and I’d thoroughly recommend it. Mmmm, mmmm….
Mmmm – I like vanilla, not so fussed on white chocolate.
But I must admit Greens do dark chocolate rather well…

I’m with you, I always liked milk chocolate too but my daughter got me hooked on dark and now I can’t ever go back. Forget junk like Hersheys, I’ve got to have the good stuff.
