Not only have the news papers gone banana's but it also seems that Thorntons has possibly lost the plot bringing out a milk chocolate block with banana.

The Chocolate: A 37% milk chocolate which melts quickly releasing sweet chocolate and hints of banana, for my liking it is a little too sickly. Each chunk contains a good amount of banana which gives the chocolate a rather strange chewy mouth feel. The chocolate itself does have some caramel coming through but the spice is masked by the amount of sugar used.
Overall not a bad try and a score of 5/10 is probably generous but Thorntons have tried to be a bit creative with this one. The organic and Fairtrade credentials have my vote and that's probably the only reason I would buy it again. I purchased 3 bars for £5.00 which is good value for money in these harsh times.
