Montezuma Monkeys Around

Can you Adam and Eve it? Montezuma’s Chocolate’s new ‘Monkey Bars’ are whoppers — bigger than an iPad – weighing in at a half-kilo —  and 10″ by 6″! The bars are named after Cockney Rhyming slang phrases as a celebration of all-things London in this Olympic and Jubilee year.

While huge, Monkey Bars do break up into handy 33g blocks, so are easily shared and come in five innovative flavours and decorated with a skyline of London, a traditional phone box, a bulldog, a Welsh dragon and a Scottish lion. They retail at £13.99.

  • Airs & Graces (‘races’) is Ecuadorian Dark chocolate with Nougat Pieces
