Green and Black's

While I'm on the subject of chocolate, especially organic chocolate, I thought of Green & Black's Organic chocolate.  I think it was the first organic chocolate I ever had.  I used to eat a lot of Lindt chocolate bars or LIndor, and before that, I basically just ate cheap, mass-produced chocolate.

I've only tried two of their bars: Mayan Gold and Mint. 

I'm not a big fan of mint chocolate.  They usually tend to go too heavy on the mint or too heavy on the chocolate.  I especially don't like mint chocolate with the sticky liquidy fillings (maybe that's why I'm not a big fan of Twix or Caramilk).  First of all, it's sticky, which means it's messy.  Second of all, the filling is usually slightly gritty for some reason or other, and I don't like the texture of it in my mouth. 

However, Green and Black's is definitely a noteworthy exception.  I was in the car when I opened the bar and the whole car instantly had a really strong smell of mint chocolate.  It was quite a nice smell.  The chocolate bar has a liquid filling but the mint doesn't overpower the chocolate taste or vice versa.  They complement each other; Green and Black's definitely lived up to their claim.  Also, the filling is not gritty!  That makes me happy.  This is one mint chocolate bar I'd recommend people try.

I tried the Mayan Gold quite a while later.  It was a bit of a disappointment after the Mint bar.  I'm a big fan of orange chocolate bars in general, but this one just didn't cut it for me.  It was solid chocolate, but I found it was a little too heavy on the spices.  I would have liked to taste a little more orange.  The texture was fine.  It's alright as a chocolate bar, but I think I'd spend my money on the mint.
