Spectre spotted this jar in Selfridges, he was browsing in the foodhall, looked at it, and an assistant said “that’s the best chocolate spread I’ve ever tasted”. Who could resist a recommendation like that! Spectre then very kindly purchased a jar for me, what as sweetie.
Being a fan of nuts and chocolate, I do like my Nutella, but this did really appeal to me too. I tried the spread on toast, and it spread easily despite being quite thick. The taste was rich, with a sumptuous amount of cocoa, then sweetness and finally a nutty hazelnut aftertaste. The spreads texture felt smooth and velvety, and everything about this product seemed to be luscious. It just is absolutely gorgeous, I really wanted to eat it with a spoon, but have managed to resist (so far).
I also tested it on the ultimate banana sandwich, which involves one banana, two slices of bread one, of which is buttered and one of which is covered in this Green & Blacks spread. So good, I was almost stuck for words, it makes the perfect energy snack! Before you try this at home though, I warn you I have a very sweet tooth. If you leave the banana out, and just try this on toast I don’t see how you could fail to love it. This is definitely one to add to the last minute Christmas grocery shop, for a breakfast treat.
