I'll be stocking up!

I will also be stocking up.

You have to think there is a cartel between Cadburys, Mars and Nestle when you can buy 100g of Dark Chocolate for 17p (dark chocolate is normally higher in Cocoa (expensive), rather than Vegetable Fats (cheap)).

£1 per 100g is the (ball park) price for Cad Mar Nes, irrespective of offers. And in terms of the big chocolate brands, UK is probably one of the cheaper places to buy it.

Thanks for the heads up

Not only is it cheap, it's actually quite tasty too. Well done Lidl!

will give it a try!

Yeah we quite like the dark one too - happy to pay 35p for a bar, though even happier to pay 17p

what is the cocoa % in this?

Laughed at that one!

There is 50% cocoa in this one. Minimum for dark chocolate is 40% from what i can recall. I usually prefer around the 70% mark.

Good deal nevertheless.

This stuff is brill-I buy 10 at a time normally and keep it in the baking cupboard. Makes amazing choclate sauce for icecream/fruit salad /top a choclate cake-brill to have in cupboard for pudding. I often give the kids bits chopped up with bits of apple if we have nothing else. at 17p I am just wondering if 100 is too greedy!

... because it was such a con at 34p!

i've still got about a dozen from their previous cheap choc offer - but a good deal anyway.

Cadbury's Bournville has, IIRC, around 34% cocoa, Jasper. 34%! Some milk chocolates have more cocoa than that. It isn't an English/UK company any more, so why pretend it produces anything other than sh*t. UK confectioners - all of the big ones - use cheap palm oil rather than cocoa butter and think a milk chocolate bar with 24% cocoa (or much less) is worth the premium price they ask. For 17p, this Lidl chocolate will beat the quality of most UK leading brand/mass produced chocolate by a country mile. That's shameful.

Though the biggest con of all (and I see them snapped up by people who simply do not know what they are buying, but prefer to be led by 'brand' power') is Lindt's 70-85% bars. They taste like burnt rubber and are best left on the shelf. Tesco used to offer an 83% French-made bar which was half the price of Lindt and twice as good, but I haven't seen that for a while.

Yeah your right, when Lindt came along they kinda ruined dark chocolate and became popular somehow. My Grandad used to give me more expensive stuff which is why i grew a taste for it. I thought bournville was around 40% but i guess it was less than i expected. I have to admit i thought bournville was alot more than 40% for awhile though.

Under EU rules there has to be a minimum of 35% cocoa solids in a product to be able to call it chocolate. You might have noticed that a lot of what you would called chocolate is not called chocolate by the manufacturers e.g Galaxy and Dairy Milk, this is because they are not allowed to call it chocolate. I think at one stage they were allowed to call it vegelate and then later "family chocolate". Basically Galaxy and Cadbury's Dairy Milk are cheap crap that you shouldn't pay more than £1 per kg for.
