“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Truffle „
Although Sainsburys has a very cheap Basics milk chocolate, this larger bar of slightly more luxury chocolate is worth the extra price. At just over a pound its quite cheap if you want to store it in your cupboard and keep it for nibbling.
If you feel like really indulging yourself, however, i wouldn't recommend eating the whole bar. As the name says, its chocolate truffle, not your standard chocolate. Its quite sickly after a few pieces (and I can usually stomach loads of chocolate in one go!!) Still, if you're buying for keeping it for odd occasions, its perfect.
The texture's smooth on the outside with the soft inner, typical of truffle chocolate and there's obviously a nice rich, milky chocolately taste.
Despite the more elaborate packaging compared to Sainsbury's Basics range, I wouldn't say it is of a similar standard to the leading chocolate brands' chocolate truffle bars. Its still a supermarket's own, and so if you are looking for high-quality stuff, this isn't it.
It tastes good, just not really 'luxury'. Though this could be expected of it given the price and brand. It still has that 'cheap chocolate' taste, which although I quite like, I wouldn't say its appropriate to give somebody as a gift.
It can be found in the chocolate and sweets aisle of most stores, and is also available online.
Recently they had an offer on the same Sainsbury's range of these chocolate bars, if my memory serves me correctly it was 2 for £2, which seemed reasonable, given that a bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk of a similar size is about £1.60 or 2 for £2.50
