We've always said here @ChocMission that if a job is worth doing, it's worth doing properly and that for us means covering everything chocolatey whether it's good, bad or indifferent. One range you may have noticed being completely indifferent about is the new Green & Blacks Thins line up. We've so far reviewed both the Green & Blacks Milk Chocolate Salt Caramel and the Green & Blacks Milk Chocolate bar for the site (See Here), and we have largely not been fussed by either one of them. To make sure we were staying true to the original incarnation of the site however we thought it only right that we share our thoughts on the final bar in the range - the Green & Blacks Thins Dark Chocolate.
Just as we did the milk chocolate bar we got this dark chocolate variant dirt cheap on a crazy £0.57 one and done mega deal at Tesco - we are still yet to see if this was just a stock clearing exercise! Remember in the likes of Ocado etc it's likely your going to be asked to pay around £2.29 for a single bar - that's more than the likes of Lindt that it sits next to on-shelf. Looks wise we've always said that Green & Black's does little for us. Yes the packaging is more premium then say some of the more family friendly brands such as Cadbury and Milka, but at the end of the say we still think it looks less prestigious than the likes of Lindt.
Overall the team were unanimous in their scoring of this Green & Blacks Thins Dark Chocolate with all agreeing it was an average at best offering. It seems to be the story of Green & Blacks on this site. They produce some decent enough chocolate but it's never anything that excites or catches the imagination of anyone in the team. To be honest when ever we know we have a new Green & Blacks bar to review its one of the brands that gets our writers excited. It does after a while start to become very hard to write the same thing time and after time and that is Green & Blacks make some god damn average chocolate.
