Thorntons Dark Chocolate With Colombian Coffee

Thorntons Coffee Chocolate Block

I’m a huge fan of dark chocolate with coffee and my preference is for the intense espresso flavours and although I’ve been lucky enough to try the Go*Do Organic Espresso and the Artisan du Chocolat Espresso Dark Chocolate Bar which were very good, when I looked at this bar from Thorntons I feared it’d be as saccharin as the coffee barrels in Cadbury Roses – I think it was the light chocolate packaging that gave me this impression, but I couldn’t have been further from the truth.

I also prejudged the chocolate as it’s only made Colombian cacao at the 53% level. But there’s a reason for this. The coffee is rich and intense and much like the espresso flavour of the Artisan bar. But the problem is that I can definitely taste a very noticeable sweetness that, for my palette, distracted from the earthy notes that coffee offers which I find more interesting.

There’s no doubting this is an interesting bar of chocolate, but it’s just too much on the sweet side for me but for just £1.79 for 90g you really can’t argue too much.

Quick Rating
  • 60% – too sweet for me, lacked the wow factor, although the nutritional information is great and the price very attractive.
