Green & Black's 70% Organic Dark Chocolate Egg

I'm still very slowly working way through the chocolate I was given for Easter and have finally got round to cracking open this premium egg by Green and Black's.

I'm not sure how much this cost as it was a gift but it would have been substantially more than a standard chocolate egg. But like all Green and Black goods, the price premium is justified through the quality. It's in a very attractive box and the wrapping is very simple. No unnecessary plastic here - it's just the egg in some foil and in a cardboard box.

Opening the egg reveals some nice little touches like the brand logo and some simple but elegant criss crosses. The ingredients list is again extremely small and natural and sugar is not the main ingredient, instead using a higher level of quality cocoa solids. And of course, it's organic.

Taste wise, this is pretty much standard Green and Black's. Smooth, very dark and intense. A little bit is enough to satisfy a sweet craving without oveindulging. It's slightly bitter in a good way and creamy without being overly sweet. It is pretty much a standard bar of Green and Black's but in an egg format, but for someone like me who prefers dark quality chocolate it's a great alternative to the standard eggs out there.

Pros: Not overly sweet or sugary, healthier than standard Easter eggs, organic, great quality ingredients, a little goes along way
Cons: Very expensive way of buying Green and Black's as it's their standard bar but in an egg shape. Doesn't do anything new.

Score: 7/10


  1. I had the 37% milk one and that was incredible!

    1. The milk chocolate is definitely great quality too - it's so smooth and creamy! I also love the orange and the almond bars too.
