Green & Black’s Crispy Milk [Chocolate] (Sainsbury’s) [By @Cinabar]

I’m not sure how it happened, but it does appear that it has been over a week since the last chocolate review at Foodstuff Finds. Needless to say I will be rectifying this immediately thanks to a new bar from Green & Blacks.
There are actually two new bars from Green & Blacks (think buses) so I will try and get the other written about asap, but in the mean time let me introduce you to the new Crispy Milk bar. The bar is made with milk chocolate and embedded into its base are multiple crisp cereal pieces. The crispies are not visible from the top of the bar, but turn it over and you can see just how many are packed in.

The chocolate itself has quite a surprisingly strong taste, and although it is a milk chocolate the cocoa shines through with arich sweet taste, with a slightly sharp edge. The crispies don’t add much to the flavour, but do give the chocolate a pleasant texture that crunches when you bite. The chocolate has a lovely thick melt, and it does feel rather comforting as it coats the tongue. It is a very enjoyable chocolate to eat, as the chocolate is strong and yet still creamy and the varied texture makes it pleasurable on the palette. I have to say this really is a good snacking chocolate, and I heartily recommend it as a treat for a night in with a good film.
I’m looking forward to trying the other new bar very soon, and getting some more chocolate back on the front page here at Foodstuff Finds. ;-)

Yep good chocolate with a pleasant crunch... wouldn't have minded something a bit more adventurous if truth be told, but this does the whole crispie thing nicely.
