Just thought I should mention that Green and Black's Maya chocolate now contains milk in case anyone doesn't spot it.

I think the whole range does now, I've just looked at my 85% dark chocolate and it lists milk powder as an ingredient. I knew it would go downhill after Cadburys bought it. sad

I've just had a look at the Green and Black's website about this, and apparently, the recipe has not changed, the warning and the ingredient listing is just to do with the risk of contamination from other products. From reading it, I would think that if you or your DC has been ok eating their chocoalte in the past, you should be still be okay. Link to the site here

By the way, Traidcraft do some fantastic organic, fairtrade dark chocolate (without any milk).

Yup - someone posted about this awhile back. Not an actual ingredient change. If your child was fine eating G&*B dark choc and hasn't got a massively severe allergy you may want to risk it. We probably will as there has never been a problem before now - and it is widely available and they do easter eggs etc.

Ah I thought it was different from the earlier announcement re the plain dark chocolate. I saw it on another board and assumed it was a new development - sorry. I just hope if they do decide to deliberately put milk into these bars at any stage they alert us to it and don't just assume they can do it because it's already listed in the ingredients. I don't trust them now they have been taken over by Cadbury's!
