Green & Black's Organic Chocolate bars

A post dedicated to a thoughtful Welsh. Look what came flying across the ocean! Organic GINGER chocolate.Yes I was surprised. Ginger tea, ginger cake ok. But ginger choc? Do note it's ORGANIC. Hmmm. I gave it a good sniff before I gingerly (of course pun very much intended) took a bite. Followed by a big greedy chomp! It was gooooood! The ginger taste was subtle although there were bits of the piquant root vegetable (or is it fruit?) in the bar.If I have not known earlier, I would not be able to pinpoint the mysterious ingredient.

Organic Orange (Maya) chocolate.No wow factor here. Big mistake. My bad. My buds were still hitting the high notes with ginger choc when I broke this. *smack own hand*. Lucky I still have half a bar in my fridge. Saving for .. this weekend! Yes yes yessirree Saturday's the day! And I have just secured great company for it. Judith McNaught! Yes I am brilliant that way .. sometimes. Oh thank you Allan and most definitely a special thank you goes out to you too,
sc, for it’s because of you I get to savour such treat. Psst. The group photo posted by sc and I look similar simply because it's the same copy. It was taken with Allan's camera and he kindly sent us copies.

For the just-enlightened-ones (moi), here's an excerpt printed on the wrapper on how the organic chocolate is produced:-

worldwindows said...

I would gingerly try. Not a great fan of dark choco. But with ginger and a twist of orange it may deter the kids but may attract the me.

worldwindows, I like all choc bars except those with caramel or liqour within.

My little girl loves dark chocolate even if it is 70%. I love dark chocolate plain or with fruit flavours. Have a piece with a cup of expresso without sugar. Delicious is the word.
