Sainsbury's Basics Milk Chocolate
« on: July 21, 2008, 09:29:53 pm »
The other night I popped into Sainsbury's on my way home and had a choc craving, but was loathe to spend a lot as I had a cupboard-full of the stuff at home. I spotted the Sainsbury's Basics choc and thought I'd give it a try; at only 23p for a 100g bar, it didn't really matter if it was horrible. As it turned out, I was very pleasantly surprised. It actually tasted really nice, and despite the low price, it was 30% cocoa solids - compare that to 20% for Dairy Milk (and I think 18% for Galaxy?). I'd really recommend giving it a try.

They also do a dark version, which I haven't tried as yet - but you have to splash out 28p for that one!
Who needs karma when you know you're great already?

I have tried most of the cheap supermarket choc and by and large they are decent.
They are a bit too creamy when applied to fruit and nut but then I am a Cadbury Fruit and Nut only fan.
The Lidl and Aldi ones are a step up again although they are a bit dearer.

I tried the white chocolate version yesterday - excellent, what a bargain!

That airport favourite 'Milka' is on offer at Netto on Monday -- 34p for a 100g bar.

Ooh, they don't seem to have the white choc one in my store - I'll have to get my mother on the case.

I noticed Morrisons do the same products for the same price. Same manufacturer?

Some of the Tesco chocolate is made in Poland.

So are Choc Oranges and many former Terry's products, following Nestle's brand asset-stripping in York.
