It normally takes quite a bit for us to get excited about reviewing anything from Green & Black's considering our previous experiences but not a single member of the @ChocMission team had issue with something carrying the words 'Salted Caramel'. Yes after what seems a very very long time since their last appearance on the site we've finally managed to find our way back to the Green & Black's brand - this time looking at a bar form their new Thins range.

You can find these new Green & Black's Thins on sale in most UK supermarkets - RRP is £2.29 though you should be able to find them on promotion at £1.50 if you do your research. Now credit has to be given to Green & Black's here. They have to be one of the only brands we know who has changed up the format of how they present their chocolate but NOT ... yes NOT made the actual product smaller. Yes a Green & Black's Thins bar still serves you up 100.0g of chocolate. That's the same as their standard range but in a flatter block format.

This bar came described as organic milk chocolate with salted caramel pieces. The pieces bit we should have really taken notice of as most of us in the team commented that the small particles brought a surprising roughness to the melt - not one that was received all that warmly if we are honest. The quality of the chocolate was fair - it was neither as creamy or smooth tasting as a Lindt and not as sweet as a Cadbury Dairy Milk. The salted caramel aside from it's rough texture brought a decent toffee note to the taste though it wasn't a bar that left you feeling like you had to reach back for more.

Overall we could of forecasted this but we weren't big fans of this Green & Blacks Thin Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate. Given there are so many other salted caramel chocolates we do like it's not as if it didn't have tough competition but to be honest this one wasn't even very close. The chocolate is average at best and the salted caramel element isn't as well achieved as it is in the likes of Hotel Chocolat and Lindt equivalents. Unless you are a big Green & Black's fan then it's probably worth giving this a miss.
