Best New Choc Product of 2008
« on: December 14, 2008, 02:52:06 pm »
It's that time of year again - our annual poll to find the best new choc product of 2008! Quite a small crop this year; the big boys don't seem willing to experiment in tough economic times...

I can't say it often enough, because every year someone moans about it (and probably still will) - THE POLL IS FOR MAINSTREAM PRODUCTS, AVAILABLE FREELY FROM A RANGE OF RETAILERS. You will NOT find Thorntons, Hotel Chocolat or the little chocolatiere you found that time on a weekend break in here; it's a fairer vote if we only include things everyone will have had a chance to try.

I see you didn't put that bar of chocolate I made in my kitchen last week in the poll.
Huh!

Thorntons is fairly mainstream... seen them stocked in WHSmiths, Sainsbury's and even Woolworths (when they were still around)

It's not much of a choice is it? I'll go for the Chocolate Orange Hazelnut.

I know, but I've included every new product I could think of.  A slow year for innovation.
