NEWSFLASH! The Grown Up Chocolate Company is now readily available to all and is stocked in WHSmith stores up and down the country - This is exciting! I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted this Dark Chocolate Smoothy next to the magazines during a quick browse. To make things even better, it was on a "Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price" offer so I treated BSW to a Superb Salted Peanut Caramel.. Like the amazingly generous Sister, I am.
This duo weighed in slightly more at 75g rather than the 65g seen previously with the White Choc Praline Wonder Bar and Glorious Coconut Hocus Pocus - Not bad for the £1.50 I paid on the deal.
A rich chocolate ganache centre topped with sticky chocolate caramel slathered in intense dark chocolate.
Look at that thick caramel layer! Doesn't it just make your eyes light up? If it doesn't, for some strange reason.. The smell sure would as it was pure chocolatey heaven! Satisfyingly "bitty" cocoa nibs ran throughout the relatively soft ganache base which produced a lovely crunchy contrast in texture as well as boosting the chocolatey flavour. Upon this was the almighty doubly dense buttery caramel layer with a super smooth and soft feel yet sticky and chewy at the same time. The whole lot was encased in a surprisingly deep, cocoa rich, dark chocolate which balanced out all the sweetness from the caramel as well as complimenting the base elements. Sheer perfection.
Things just get better and better with The Grown Up Choc Company - Its not often you find a decent dark chocolate bar that isn't milk in disguise or is just plain bitter.. This Dark Chocolate Smoothy is spot on! I didn't think anything would come close to the Crunchy Crispy Toffee Trilogy but today, we've got something real special. Its a 4.5 out of 5 from me!
