Thornton's: "Chocolate" United Kingdom Shopping Tip by tvor

United Kingdom Shopping: 40 reviews and 29 photos

The chocolate in England may not be in the same class as Belgian or Swiss chocolate but it's pretty damn good. It beats the run of the mill stuff over in North America by yards! Even the everyday Cadbury's chocolate is creamier. Green and Black, found in Tesco's and Sainsbury's is organic and wonderfully rich as well.

If you really want sinfully good chocolate, go to a Thornton's store. Thornton's is a chain of stores around the U.K, that specializes in Chocolate like Laura Secord in Canada. They specialize in Chocolate and toffee goods and while a little more expensive than Cadbury's they are more than worth it for the rich cocoa-y melt in your mouth product.

What to buy: My favourite is the Chocolate with toffee bits in it. They made toffee in a lot of flavours as well and it's buttery and rich. You can get it in the shops and the duty free at the airports generally have it too.

What to pay: various prices, a bit more expensive than corner shop chocolate.
