Green & Blacks New Burnt Toffee Dark and Crisp Cereal Milk Chocolate Bars [CLOSED]

[ 47 ] Comments

I happened to get these bark from the folks working with Green and Blacks who also provided extra ones for me to give away.  I had heard about the Burnt Toffee but the rice crispies one was new to me but I hadn’t gotten the chance to try either yet.

There’s a lot of controversy around G&B but I still enjoy their chocolate.  I think my favourite remains the Almond Bar but I’m open to try new flavours so why not these?  Of my foodie friends who are not chocolate specialists, most choose Green and Blacks. G&B have worked hard to increase their profile in recent years with a tea and chocolate pairing, the search for a new taste assistant and two new flavours – YUM!

green blacks rice crispiesThe milk with rice crispies was lovely.  I have a bit of a sweet tooth going right now and ate a substantial number of squares of this before writing this review.  The milk chocolate was slightly less ready to melt than I’m used to in a milk chocolate but still sweet. I enjoyed the rice crispies though but I don’t think it’ll be replacing my fav.

green blacks burnt toffeeThe dark chocolate with burnt toffee was not immediately my favourite. I found the dark chocolate a bit hard but the burnt toffee was delicious.  I love that stuff! I ate a bit more, and a bit more and I’m still not sure. I don’t think it would work in milk so it has to be dark but a dark which melted more readily might be nicer but you know, I like the burnt toffee.

These two new bars are great additions to the Green & Blacks like.  I’m positive that they are going to become a staple part of peoples shopping baskets.  If you like rice crispies and chocolate or crumbly burnt toffee then you’re going to love these bars.

I have one of each of these bars to give away! If you’d like to win one, comment on any post on this blog (comment must be more than 10 words and relevant) or just tweet “I’m going for something new with @mostlyaboutchoc and you can too at” and I’ll choose a winner on Thursday by first selecting comment or twitter using and then using that to choose the winner.  Good luck everyone!

    My goodness these sound fabulous, always love to try new and different things. Green and Blacks is so delicious though have to be honest it is usually only an occasional treat as being a chocoholic it’s a bit expensive to have too often. Following on Facebook and tweeting @missjilllyj.

  3. Mary Baldwin says:

    Burnt Toffee sounds fab, but not so sure about the rice crispies; may be a bit sweet for me. I love dark chocolate and the thought of that and Burnt Toffee is making my mouth water.

    The new Burnt Toffee sounds gorgeous when it’s burnt deliberately!

  8. Louise Dray says:

    I love all Green & Blacks chocolate, so I would love to try new flavours. Also toffee is my favorite chocolate comber-nation.

  9. Joseph Watson says:

    I’ll have the Burnt Toffee bar myself and I’ll give the Crisp Cereal bar to my wife – I’m a caring, sharing type of man.

  10. ashleigh says:

  11. Joanne B says:

    These sound delicious, I’m generally not a fan of dark chocolate but the burnt toffee makes it sound lovely.

  12. claire says:

    they sound delicious – the cooperative do a rice crispies chocolate bar that sounds similar, which i enjoy, so it would be nice to try green and black’s version

  13. jonathan collins says:

    i absolutley love, green and blacks dark ( just sucking a square ), but these sound devine especially the toffee one. Yummie Yummie, and my 2 little girls would love them i’m sure ;),

  14. Kerry says:

    Rice crispie chocolate is my FAVOURITE! I want to go to there!

  15. beehummingbird says:

    Those chocolate bars look delicious. I must buy some Green & Blacks next time I go shopping.

  16. Carl Mainprize (and yes that really is my name) says:

    Even in these times of cutbacks and austerity a little luxury goes a long way to easing the pain and what better medicine can there be other than CHOCOLATE

  17. laura Hickey says:

    This looks great the burnt toffee one sounds interesting, I have only tried the plain ones before.

  18. Ileana F says:

    I am so intrigued about burnt toffee!! I always associated burnt toffee with our failed attempts at halloween toffee apples! haha!

    Fab prizes <3

  19. KERAN says:

    These sound like grown up versions of classic childrens treats! Yummy!!

  20. Carolina J. says:

    I have tweeted! Thank you! @pandcands on Twitter.

  21. Pavlina says:

    I’m totally, madly, irresponsibly in love with anything that has cacao in it – trying one of these new flavours of Green & Blacks would simply bring my all senses to another level!

    Thank you! 🙂

  22. IRENE MCINTOSH says:

    Only eat Green and Blacks and the burnt toffee is the one for me cos I just love toffee, so mixed with chocolate it has to be the one for me! Following on fb and tweeting at @imcintosh1

  23. K DUNN says:

  25. Tony says:

    I LOVE chocolate, all kinds, I love it all, there are so many yummy kinds of different chocolate, I am trying my hardest to try them all!

  26. conrad edwards says:

    What controversy about G&B? The only argument is how to hide them from the wife…

  27. Helen B says:

    These sound amazing, especially the burnt toffee in dark chocolate one. I can almost taste it now.

  28. Splodz says:

    Green & Blacks White is my favourite chocolate by far, but I’m looking at this Burnt Toffee one and thinking it may be a contender… would love to give it a try.

  29. deirdre donnelly says:

    chocolate is a main food group

  30. Emma Holness says:

    I love green and blacks, I think their butterscotch bar is the best chocolate bar ever, I wonder if the burnt toffee will be similar.

  31. Sandy Hill says:

    Rice crispies with milk chocolate is a perfect combination… except somehow it usually feels like I’m trying to be healthy and failing. Skips the crispies and it’s pure indulgence. But maybe G&B can pull it off, I might have to investigate!

  32. Claire Trevor says:

    I love Green & Blacks chocolate, especially the butterscotch flavour. I haven’t tried either of these two though, so I will be taking a trip to the shops soon! I’d love to try the rice crispies one.

  33. cathy james says:

    the burnt toffee sounds divine

  34. Jennifer Turnbull says:

    Mmmmm these sound lovely. My all time favourite Green & Blacks bar is the Butterscotch…..deeelish!!! Would love to try the new flavours and it would be fab to win them.

  35. Frances Morgan says:

    All of the pictures of the choc are making me drool. I’ve not had chocolate in a while, and Green & Black’s do amazing white chocolate. Well after having to drop out temporarily from uni,give up the house, move back to the folks’ house and currently no income I could do with a pick-me up!

  36. Lora says:

    mmm I’ll definitely be looking out for these. Butterscotch is my current favourite and the burnt toffee sounds like a dark variation on it. The only problem with the crispy one is that there’s something about that texture which means I can’t stop and the bar is gone before I know what happened! I hope somebody has them on a 2 for £3 or better deal before Christmas.

  37. Solange says:

    I love Green & Blacks chocolate. I haven’t tried either of these, I’d love to try the rice crispies one.

  38. Jamie Musson says:

    This would make a really nice treat, so I hope I win, I’d share the choc with my girlfriend 🙂
    Thank you

  39. Karen Barrett says:

    I have tweeted
    Chocolate! Lovely, my name says it all ;0)

  40. Julie says:

    Yummy these bars look so nice. I love a nice piece of chocolate after a hard days work, so please pick me!!!

  41. business says:

    Sometimes I am just so enamored with a cupcake. This is one of those times. These little babies are tasty. Deliciously chocolately while not being too sweet, the burnt taste of the toffee with the cool cream, and add to that the texture and flavor of the nuts!?! Yum!

  42. Deborah Nicholas says:

    Love the idea of burnt toffee – anything with toffee in is good by me!! lol

  43. Victoria Smith says:

    Great post – I find Green & Blacks really rich so its a little bit easier to have just a square or two instead of the whole bar (unlike dairy milk!). The burnt toffee one sounds amazing though not sure I could put that one away! x

  44. Meryl says:

    I didn’t realize I had to leave 10 words or more. So, here goes: I love Green & Black’s Chocolate, especially their 70%. The burnt toffee one sounds great!

  45. Louis says:
