    Spotted this in Sainbury's OK it's not cheap at £3 a go but it must be one of the best I've tasted hopefully they will have it on offer in the future

    This is definitely one to avoid Andy its nothing like any other dark high cocoa content chocolate I've tried before, it's so smooth and not bitter at all. Cool

    The lindt 85% dark chocolate is 19g carb per 100g
    http://www.lindt.co.uk/shop/our-brands/excellence/excellence-85

    The Panama 80% carb content is 25g carb per 100g
    See nutrition details above

    Yes, a square may be nice with a cup of coffee  Smile

    Yes the carb content is higher than the Lindt but given the amount consumed in my case three squares which is under 3g carbs the difference is small by comparison, I do find the Lindt to bitter for my taste though

    So far no luck finding this in the Co-Op or the healthfood shop. Not sure where there's a Sainsburies around these parts, maybe in one of the Big Cities.

    I think it's new on the market Ocado stock it though I don't think Waitrose have it in store.

    Oh well, I'll just have to force myself to keep eating the Co-Op Fairtrade 85% then.
