Classy chocolate at a budget price
Although I wouldn't describe myself as a chocaholic I do have a weakness for fine dark chocolate which I justify on the basis that it's good for me.
I'm always on the lookout for the perfect bar but until this week the ones I've liked have all been pretty pricey. Except for one we buy in France which it would be pointless to recommend to you here.
Now I - or to be strictly truthful - my husband has found a really superb one in the Sainsbury's Taste the Difference range. It's called São Tomé and comes from the African island of the same name which I'm embarrassed to admit I'd never heard of. It not only has a really deep, rich chocolatey flavour but a fabulous velvety texture that I think would probably make the ultimate chocolate mousse. Not that it isn't divine to nibble on its own . . .
And the best bit is that it only costs 99p for a 100g bar.
Isn't that just about the best news this week?
