We've always eaten Lidl's chocolate which is around a £1 for a bar around the same size. However, when you go into Sainsburys and see that there's a bar of dark chocolate for 27p you can't well not try it, can you? This is dark chocolate of at least 50% cocoa which I think is pretty reasonable. The stuff you buy in other supermarkets, or at least Lidl, varies from this mark to 60, 70, 80, etc. Probably around 50 - 80 is my favourite amount. We prefer to eat the higher cocoa percentages as it's meant to be healthy or something and it makes you feel less guilty about eating chocolate. 50% isn't particularly high, I guess, as I think 60 or 70 is probably the norm but it ...

I am a huge fan of chocolate but being on a tight budget after my partner lost his job and the arrival of a new baby, we need to cut down our outgoings. The last thing I wanted to give up was my intake of chocolate. Without it I would be lost. I am a total chocoholic. Tucked at the bottom of the chocolate aisle in Sainsbury's I noticed these white packets with Sainsbury's basics printed across the top. I then saw the word chocolate and had to have a closer look. The packaging wasn't appealing at all really but who cares about the packaging. It's very basic, plain white with the product details printed on the front in orange. Underneath where it ...

It's hardly a secret to anyone that has been reading my reviews for a while that I am rather partial (to say the least!) to a nice bar of chocolate. In truth it is probably my biggest indulgence where food is concerned, and for the most part I am much more interested in the taste than anything else; frankly, if you're really concerned about eating healthily at all times, then chocolate is not the best food to be consuming in the first place! So, putting on the pounds is not something I worry too much about. Taking out the pounds (from my wallet), however, is another matter, as some chocolate can be extremely expensive. With that in mind, I thought I would get ... Read the complete review

Ahhh, yet another chocolate tasting session, purely in the interest of research of course. At the moment I'm busy working my way through all the basic chocolates. And todays victim is Sainsburys, it's slightly more expensive than the other supermarkets version at 45p but it's my experience that Sainsburys basic range is a step up from the other supermarkets value ranges. Does this transfer to the chocolate range though? This is the only value chocolate I've tried that has a definite smell as soon as I open the packet. It has a good rich smell that without trying to be extremely cheesy it really does make you want to try it. It has an ... Read the complete review

So there I was standing in the confectionary isle in my local Sainsbury's trying to decide what chocolate to go for when I noticed this one, now to be fair at first it doesn't look all that great in just the plain white packaging, but trust me looks can be deceiving and at 30p I defiantly wasn't going to give this a miss The reason I bought the chocolate was because I am trying out all different own brands, solely in the name of research and also to find out what darkchocolate would be good for my dark chocolate cakes. So home I went with my chocolate to give a taste and I have to say that ... Read the complete review
