Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Belgian Dark Chocolate

Dark Chocolate (85)      Sainsbury's (3)     
I have a bit of a thing for dark chocolate, and of all the supermarket brands, nowhere does it better than Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Belgian Dark Chocolate (2.30).



Sainsbury's remind me of my childhood, so you might say I'm biased, but the proof is in the pudding, or the bar, for this matter.

The 72% Dark Chocolate bar is sold in the baking area of the store, but I see it as something to nibble on when you want something sweet, but not too sugary.

Unlike a lot of dark chocolates ranges on the market, this bar is remarkably smooth, and not as bitter as you might expect. I've found bitterness is something producers struggle with - cacao is naturally a neutral flavour, which has no sweetness to it at all, which is probably why people consider it bitter; cacao is not naturally bitter, but in comparison to the Western understanding of what is chocolate, dark chocolate can seem bitter.



Either way, I don't just use this chocolate as a sweet-fix when I'm in the mood for dessert, I use it in chilli and beef stews - it works wonderfully, and the naturally occurring sugars in the bar make stews and chillies all the more delicious. Although many would consider 70% dark chocolate a high percentage of cocoa mass, it's not that high, and it works better than some 85% chocolates I've previously tried.

If you're not as daring as myself then the chocolate is delicious eaten alone.
