I've always been a huge lover of chocolate, and when Lily O'Brien's asked if I wanted to review some of their chocolate bars, it was a straight yes.  I received a selection of their 80g bars (£2.00 each)* that come in six different flavours including Salted Caramel which sounds like it would be beautiful. The flavours I have been trying out are Orange & Bergamot Ganache, Peppermint Crunch, Dulce de Leche, Caramel Crunch and Malted Chocolate Crunch. Some of the bars come in both Milk and Dark chocolate which should suit everyone's chocolate needs.

The Orange & Bergamot Ganache was one of the flavours that I wasn't sure what to expect. Orange and bergamot are well known to be a match made in heaven but I'd never tried it with chocolate. Once you snap a piece of the chocolate the smooth ganache filling oozes out, tasting of fragrant orange with a citrus twist of bergamot and it left me wanting more. I've never been a huge fan of fruit mixed with chocolate and would usually pick up something different but I would most definitely pick this up. This flavour even won a Great Taste Award!

The Dulce de Leche bar was another interesting bar as it's made with marbled dark chocolate that is rippled with caramel infused white chocolate. It's one of the bars I wish I had taken a separate photo of but in all honesty it was the first one I wanted to try and my stomach got the better of me as I had a feeling it was going to be the most creamy bar, and boy was I right. I knew exactly what to expect when trying the Malted Chocolate Crunch as it reminded me of Maltesers which are a household favourite. The milk chocolate melted quickly as the pieces aren't too thick, leaving you with sweet and crispy malt pieces.

The Caramel Crunch bar was another flavour that I knew would go down well. It's described as an intensely cream milk chocolate bar that surrenders to a savoury-sweet burst of golden caramel crunch scattered with Atlantic salt crystals. This almost sounds like the pieces of caramel and salt would be huge but they're quite fine which I preferred. Inside the bar was just the right about of caramel crunch and would happily buy a huge box of these bars! Finally, Peppermint Crunch is a dark chocolate bar filled with a burst of refreshing peppermint crisp with a twist of fragrant basil. Dare I say it but I think I preferred this over After Eights! I've always liked dark chocolate more than others around me but wouldn't rush to pick it up, but anything with peppermint is definitely up there with milk and caramel. It was certainly refreshing and would be a great treat to have in the Autumn and Winter.

Along with chocolate bars, Lily O'Brien's have also got boxes and gifts on their website and even do chocolates that you can personalise for a wedding. You can pick up the bars online or at your local Asda store and I'd encourage you to try them for yourself to see how delicious they are.
