Dark chocolate crisps are hitting supermarket shelves this spring as Green & Black's launches its new bitesize chocolate range, textured with premium ingredients.

Available in two flavours – Salted Caramel & Almonds, and Raisin & Hazelnuts – Green & Black's Dark Chocolate Crisps are crafted from 70 per cent dark chocolate, rich in cocoa content.

The company sources all of its cocoa through sustainable cocoa farming initiative Cocoa Life, which is extended across its entire range of chocolate, “ensuring consumers are choosing a product that not only appeals to their taste buds, but their consciences too.”

The Green & Black's Dark Chocolate Crisps (120g) range is available in Coles and Woolworths around the country for RRP $5.50.
