Ever since I read some less than stellar reviews about Green & Blacks chocolate, I have tended to avoid buying anything from their range. For Christmas, however, the family received a big box with a selection of all their different bars, so I thought I would give them a try. I was pleasantly surprised, as they were much better than I thought they were going to be.

The Box is called The Connoisseur Collection. It consists of four 100g bars, four 35g bars, four 15g bars, a pairs wheel, and drink pairing & food recipe booklet.

The bar selection includes a White, 32% Milk, 37% Milk, Sea Salt, Almond, Butterscotch, Raisin Hazelnut, Hazelnut, Maya Gold, Cherry, Hazelnut & Current, Ginger, 70% Dark, and 85% Dark.

These were shared out between the family, and no one had a bad word to say about them. My personal favourite was the Sea Salt, which elevated the milk chocolate to an almost savoury experience. In contrast, the 70% Dark had hints of sweet red berries, which cut through some of the bitter notes. The 85% Dark was much richer, and had and earthy flavour.

I was expecting the Raisin Almond to be nothing new, and similar to a Dairy Fruit & Nut, but it was probably the biggest surprise of the selection. It actually gave off a hint of red wine, although it was non-alcoholic.

Talking about wine; in the booklet, you are given a drinks pairing for each bar. For example, the Sea Salt should go with a sweet Malmsey Maderia, the White with Sauternes, and the Almond with a Dulce Sherry.

You can also make delicious food using these bars, with their recipe for spiced chocolate loaf, white chocolate rice pudding, rice pudding, flapjacks, and truffles.
