Moving on from Thorntons’ new and limited edition summer range reviewed recently, today I’ve got something a bit more traditional- Thorntons are semi-legendary for their toffee and fudge and it seems to have been around for as long as time itself. Their toffee is also very popular amongst dentists…for keeping them in jobs. It isn’t their toffee I’m reviewing now though, but their fudge- in the form of their fudge milk chocolate bar.

After reviewing the Thorntons’ Banana and Custard Chocolate, and Jam Roly Poly Truffles a few weeks ago, I finally got round to buying and eating the other bar in their ‘Best of British’ range. Bakewell Tarts are- for those of you who haven’t encountered them before- pies with a jam and almond sponge filling. This chocolate bar was an attempt from Thorntons to imitate those flavours, and was described as ‘almond flavour milk chocolate with raspberry and waffle pieces’.
Last week, I reviewed Thorntons’ Jam Roly Poly Truffles which come from their summer range, ‘The Best of British’. Following on from that, I have another of their summer chocolates to look at today, this time a proper bar of chocolate. Described as ‘white chocolate with sweetened banana chips, vanilla seeds and custard flavour’ I was hoping for something a bit better than the Jam Roly Poly Truffles.
This is my first review of a Thorntons product. For those of you from outside the UK, Thorntons is a British chocolate company which has been around since 1911. For many decades it was the ‘go to’ chocolate shop, but it has begun to struggle in recent years amidst heightened competition. Their chocolate has been labelled as unimaginative and old-fashioned. They’ve tried to change this image over the last couple of years and their exciting summer range this year included these: Thorntons’ Jam Roly Poly Truffles.
