The Chocolate Society – Good Afternoon (Sainsbury’s)


Chocolate bars are often called strange things and this bar has a curious name too. It has been released amid a selection of bars designed for different times of the day. Chocolate designed for afternoon eating is really fair enough, but there is also a bar called ‘Good Morning’ which is a milk chocolate bar that goes well with fruit juice. Breakfast chocolate is a bit of a niche market, but I suppose there aren’t actually any rules for when you eat it!
This chocolate is a dark and rich 66% cocoa bar. The smell is surprisingly sharp, and I was worried that the taste would be too. However the flavour although strong and dark, is nicely balanced with sweetness. I loved the texture when it melted in the mouth as it was lovely and smooth. It is a full flavour bar that has a well defined taste. I have to confess I tried this with my afternoon coffee, and it did indeed go well with that, so perhaps the name isn’t so strange after all!
