In the Summer Nano Slab Gallery I recently reviewed all but one of the new summer selector slabs were included; the Mango & Yoghurt Summer Selector Slab, or should I say slabs, as like some of the selector slabs this 100g bar was split into 2 thinner 50g bars - which is great for portion control purposes!
Apparently this bar is inspired by the cooling refreshing mango lassie drink with half of the slab being made up of mango flavoured white chocolate and half of the slab being yoghurt flavoured white chocolate. The mango half actually contains mango powder; so it's nice to see that not just a flavouring has been used.
The mango has a wonderful, sweet tropical flavour and eating it just reminded me of summers sitting eating a Solero to cool down; the yoghurt half doesn't have a massive yoghurt tang, but does have a slightly sourer subtle undertone,so that you notice that it isn't just standard white chocolate - it doesn't have the same higher sweetness level associated with white chocolate.
I definitely think it's a great bar of chocolate for the summer; the yoghurt and mango flavours give it a nice lift and stop it being overly sweet/sickly/rich and although a bar of chocolate may not be the first thing you would reach for on a hot summer day it makes for a nice change.
Taste - 7.9/10 - Lovely, refreshing mango flavour with subtle yoghurt undertones.
Texture - 8.0/10 - Smooth, creamy melt.
Appearance - 8.2/10 - Vibrant and appealing.
Price - 7.2/10 - Priced at £3.75 or £3.15 if you buy more than 3 selectors.
Overall - 7.8/10 - A nice change to the usual fruity chocolates out there.
Anyone looking for a lighter, refreshing chocolate eat.
