Forest Feast Belgian Dark Chocolate Banana

At the weekend I did my usual shop at Holland & Barrett and these caught my eye so I grabbed a bag.


When I opened the bag I was a little surprised as I think I envisaged dried banana dipped in chocolate.  Instead these are large pieces of soft and chewy banana dusted in chocolate (reminds me of Booja Booja Truffles).  These are sweet from the banana but with a nice bitterness from the dark chocolate.  I scoffed the lot very easily whilst sitting at work and was sad when the pouch was empty :)

I am always looking for sweet dairy free treats and I may have found a new obsession.  I shall be picking up more of these next time I am shopping.  I have checked out the website (link) and these also come in Milk Chocolate Mango, Dark Chocolate Sour Cherries, White Chocolate Cranberries and White Chocolate Inca Berries.  Looks like the other flavours are off limits for me but definitely worth a try if you are searching for a naughty (but sort of healthy) snack. 


The Allergy Advice for the Banana is they contain Soya, may contain milk, packed in a factory handling nuts & sesame seeds.  The pouch is 90g and I paid £2.35 which is expensive but worth it. 



UPDATE - 31/10/13 - ALLERGY ADVICE NOW SAYS CONTAINS MILK

  1. That looks so good! I go through phases of not liking/liking bananas, and as I like them at the moment, I may try these out! Although I can't always get to Holland and Barrett so I might try coating a banana in dark chocolate and letting it set...I'm hungry now lol! xx

    1. I am not a huge fan of dark chocolate but you might like these because the bitterness is counteracted by the sweet banana. I imagine the white chocolate ones would be nice :) Let me know if you find them
