Advantages smooth, fine, good value
Disadvantages Only at M&S, too good for kids
I've decided that my chocolate consumption can no longer be hidden, and I must come out of the closet. Declaring:
"My name is James and I'm a chocoholic"
And without further ado I'll tell you about my current bar of choice.
Cadbury’s dairy milk is a "bite me, eat me quick" chocolate, but this a more refined, more relaxed chocolate which contains more cocoa but doesn't need to be an "acquired taste".Aroma:
Pale chocolate brown a shade lighter than Cadbury’s dairy milk, generous size "squares" (20mm x 25mm) but thin (5-7mm deep), a simple hatching design on top.
Consists of a paper wrapper and foil inner.
Foil inner is not sealed - which I like because I can unfold it carefully.
Paper wrapper is sealed with 7 or so spots of glue along the middle.
Shows a close up of the chocolate to probably 150% magnification, on top of this image is a simple rectangle in the background colour (brown slightly darker than the chocolate) with text stating the this is Marks and Spencer's Swiss milk extra fine chocolate, with Swiss in blue and a blue bar underneath.
It also describes the bar:
"Our extra fine chocolate has been specially blended to give you a smooth velvety melt-in-the-mouth experience"
I wouldn't disagree.
It has a ‘contains’ box in slightly larger print stating that it contains Nuts, Cows Milk, and Soya. As well as a "Not suitable for NUT allergy sufferers".The nutritional information is per 100g:
I would say that this is not a chocolate for kids, who couldn't tell the difference - I'm sure they'd eat it, but they wouldn't appreciate the difference between this and Cadbury’s dairy milk which is more of a "candy" when put in comparison to this.Please ignore criteria below: Soundtrack (I've yet to hear of a chocolate bar with a sound track of its own.) Special effects and humour - eh?
