Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Thorntons Deliciously Smooth Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs Confirmed sighting: Thorntons Deliciously Smooth Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs
Posted: 15:34 Thu 27-Mar-2008. Price: 1.19. Location: Thorntons, Manchester Arndale.
"penguin42" reports: I managed to avoid all the egg shaped chocolate today and found this (80g bar) near the back. It's rather nice - very chocolatey (as it should be with 60% cocoa solids) but it's unusual in having one side completely covered in cocoa nibs; a lot of others have some cocoa nibs in but this has lots of them over the whole top surface (9% according to the label).

(On a different topic has anyone noticed the rapidly rising cost of Green and Blacks chocolate - I saw a bar over 2 for 100g the other day in central Manchester). Nice site; I've been watching it for years, but this is the first time I've actually got around to taking a picture and posting!

...Easter's been busy for first-time spotters, but the cloudy weather didn't do "Zeddy" any favours for this photograph of Kshocolat Chilli Almonds (1.19, Sainsbury, East Kilbride, 13.2g fat per pack), causing him to gasp: "Oh Jeez! These are HOT! The heat steals up on you kinda like the Tango Orange man used to all those years ago. I think the chocolate tastes OK and the almonds are nice but I cannot recall as I have to go drink a jug of water just now." As a slightly downmarket alternative, he also found these Cadbury Toffee Crunch Fingers for 1.25 BOGOF in Tesco, Silverburn, Glasgow, musing: "As Peter Kay might say, 'Les Cadbury Fingeres' now with El Toffee! The toffee flavour is nice and strong making these very moreish. It says 'Season's Collection' on the pack. What season is toffee, exactly?"

Comment: Rising Green and Blacks prices? That'll be the Cadbury effect.

Comment: Yes, I thought they were ok for something trying to be "expensive" chocolate but at the same time reasonably priced.
