“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Dark „
I have tried a few different types of chilli chocolate now and this is one of my favourites. I am not ordinarily a fan of dark chocolate, but with the chilli mix in this is great and I recommend that you try it.
This chocolate comes in a cardboard packet which is dark pink in colour with the burgandy Taste the Difference label at the top. Underneath the cardboard is a silver foil wrapper to keep everything nice and fresh. The chocoate is quite thin, around 0.5cm, but the slab is divided into only ten pieces so each piece is quite large, around 4cm x 5cm. There are 53 calories per piece.
It is quite a solid choclate so has that nice chunky feeling as you snap a piece off and you have to chew it well to get the full taste sensation. It does also melt in your mouth if you prefer, however. Either way you choose to consume it there is a very pleasant taste, very chocolately at 66% cocoa, and then the chilli kicks in. It's not very hot, just nicely warming, you feel it in your mouth, on your tongue and in your throat. I have friends who hate spicy food but they quite enjoyed this, so it can't be that bad.
Chillie chocolate is ideal to take with you when you are going for a walk on a winter day as it will give you the energy boost you need and warm you up at the same time. A 100g bar will cost you £1.01.
