    I don’t know if it’s subconscious but I noticed this for the first time at an organic store today. I WAS very tempted by the Butterscotch and the Cherry but I am trying to get ready for a health kick (yes I know Christmas is in the middle!) and it definitely fell into the luxurious price-range!But I’ll wait and after the month of health, give in to temptation. Oh and I came across their cookbook the other day and you’re right, it looks great.

    I’ve seen that cherry bar, Plum, and I’m resisting strong temptation at the moment! Irish shops – perhaps it’s the ones that I frequent – seem to be particularly good at stocking G&B’s and I’m always drawn to the display. They’ve a great range of boxes for Christmas too – dark, milk and white squares, pralines and even a truly intense looking dark chocolate selection…but, besides all that, best of luck with the healthly living this month. Worth investing in the cookbook for when it’s over though!

    I have to say, green LA girl, that after eating the G&B’s milk chocolate, I may have to revise my views on it. I’ve always been a dark chocolate fan – the first time I went to a french supermarché and saw their variety of dark chocolate I was in heaven! – but milk chocolate of the expensive (and Fair Trade and organic) variety may just be sneaking into my affections. I think more testing may be called for!
