I am fussy about my hot drinks and I find most hot chocolate powders too weak for me. The only one that I really liked was the Tesco own label one because of it's high cocoa content compared to the branded versions, but as they have changed the recipe I decided to go back to plain old cocoa. Now I wonder why I ever relegated it just to baking in the first place! I buy Green & Blacks Organic Cocoa powder because it is the easiest to get hold of for me, as well as fair trade. A 125g tub most recently cost me £2.20. The cocoa comes in a smart looking tub with a firmly shutting lid so I don't bother to transfer it to another container. I am ... Read the complete review

One thing I always save enough Weight Watchers points for is a decent mug of hot chocolate at the end of the evening, especially in this cold weather we're having. One I adore is Green & Blacks Cocoa which is made in the traditional way with hot milk and perhaps a spoon of sugar to really round off a delicious mug of hot chocolate. I use it mainly for my nightly hot chocolate, but have successfully baked with it and made chocolate sauce or added it to icing sugar to create a quick chocolate icing to top digestive biscuits or fairy cakes. The powder has a rich and rounded chocolate flavour, somewhat bitter because it has such a high cocoa ... Read the complete review

So, I love chocolate; well, who doesn't? I also love baking, so it goes to figure that I might just need to make chocolate cakes. Darn, there goes the diet again! I already have a bit of a crush on Green and Blacks chocolate so I was pretty chuffed to discover they have brought out a new baking range, which includes cocoa powder. In addition there is also a recipe book (which I need to get my hands on!) and a 'baking' chocolate, 72% cocoa solids. The cocoa powder is organic and is importantly fair trade certified. This is actually 100% cocoa powder; no unrequited extras here. http://greenandblacks.com/uk/what-we-make/home-use/cocoa-powder.html You ... Read the complete review

Well it might be a sign of my age, but I do like a hot, milky drink before bedtime. If I can persuade my other half to make it for me while he makes his tea, even better! Now I should clarify that's about all he does in the culinary department. But I digress. I used to have a mug of Horlicks instant mix or Green & Black's drinking chocolate, but to be honest I don't have a very sweet tooth and I realised I was not really enjoying either of these because they were a bit too sweet for me. I'm one of those people who prefers my chocolate with 70% cocoa solids or more - I don't like Galaxy, for instance, as I find it a bit sickly - so you can see where I'm coming ...

I've been looking forward to reviewing Green & Black's cocoa powder, to have a reason to stop for a while and consider it fully is a real pleasure. I adore the taste of Green & Black's chocolate products, in my view the best on the market. The company started in London 1991 making the world's first organic chocolate, the now famous 70% dark chocolate bar. I love the original values of the company which are there in the name 'Green' represents the chocolate being organic and fairtrade and 'Black' the rich and distinctive flavour of the cocoa beans. Cadbury bought Green & Black's in 2005 and disappointingly the American multinational company Kraft Foods now own Read the complete review
