I'm sceptical but always open to free chocolate samples. ;) :D

Wonder how much it will cost? And how widely it will be available?

One reason I eat so little chocolate is that if I fancy some when I'm out and about usually all available confectionery is milk chocolate, and I prefer plain, you can get posh plain chocolates of course, and slabs in the supermarket, but whatever happened to plain choc Kit Kat etc.?

5th type, surely. There is blond chocolate too (which is not widely available and is very expensive). Sorry in pedant mode.

I'd try it, I'll try anything but since I don't have a sweet tooth I can't see me buying it.

I think the last sentence is the most worrying -
"It tastes so light and fruity you don't really realise you're gobbling up one chocolate the other, so it means consumers will be able to eat more of it than other types of conventional chocolate.” and how many calories will that be?

I've seen this mentioned around recently - don't see why it wouldn't be nice, though like coffee etc, chocolate does vary. I imagine I could force a piece down in order to find out ;) .

I rarely buy chocolate out and about so didn't realise it was hard to find plain chocolate items. Supermarkets and specialist outlets always seem to have plenty. I think generally that many, and children, are happy with well-known, sweet, milk concoctions and the shopkeeper probably just stocks what they know will sell best.

I would try it just out of curiosity but I am not a chocolate fan, rarely eat the stuff, so one square or chunk would probably be a one off for me.

We have one square each of Lindt dark, thin and usually flavoured with chilli or lime zest with an espresso after lunch. Quite enought for me.

Green and Blacks with ginger hits the spot for me. Also, they do a 90% dark which is really good if eaten in very small quantities.

Cheers NLB :tu:

Not a massive fan of Lindt
I think I probably like Montezuma best
"Divine" is simply nasty
Lidl have discontinued the one I liked
