The Chocolate: Ok, enough about financial woes lets talk about this little hunk of chocolate. According to Thorntons this bar of chocolate has an intense cocoa flavour and is slightly bitter that contrasts with the fruity floral bouquet. I don't believe I've ever been disappointed by the presentation of a Thorntons chocolate bar. Whoever runs their production line should have a pat on the back. The aroma is full of that fruity floral bouquet with hints of blackcurrant and wood. Shut your eyes, breath deeply and think tobacco. Even though this is a 70% chocolate it is not overpowering or bitter in fact it has a touch of sweetness about it that I was not really expecting. What annoys me about Thorntons is that they do not tell you anything about where their chocolate comes from. They talk about everything else but not this?
Overall a fairly middle of the road dark chocolate which is not as intense as they say and for this reason I'm awarding a score of 6/10. This block cost me £1.89 for 90g. You can buy it for £1.20 on line with a Best Before Date of April 2011?
