I love to get a variety of these Lindt bars and then the boyfriend and I do a chocolate-tasting where we analyze chocolates and what we like or dislike. It's really fun and quite affordable.
Lindt is always satisfying! These chocolates are so high quality and rich, there's no need to even eat the whole bar. I usually just eat a square or two and I'm completely satisfied. Really!
These bars are my go-to chocolate fix. My favorite is the 70% dark chocolate bar. Not too bitter, not too sweet and it has the perfect chocolate "snap" when you bit into it. It also goes amazingly well with red wine! ;)
I recently purchased this chocolate bar from Walgreens. This is by far one of the most delicious "flavors" I have had from Lindt so far. The hazelnuts are the perfect size and there are MANY in each piece, unlike other bars with nuts, I feel this one you could actually taste the nuts with the chocolate.
These are the chocolate bars I get when I want to splurge! They have rich taste and lovely packaging. However, it is a bit expensive for me, but find to buy on occasion to Treat Yo' Self!
Love the taste, I just wish it was a little less expensive. I need to get my chocolate fix! The chocolate is way smoothr than cheaper chocolate, though. I would say it's worth the price.
I love the dark chocolate with dried orange pieces it is to die for. My boyfriend always buys me them for my birthday and Christmas. If you love chocolate and oranges grab one of these!
They have vegan chocolate bars (the dark, higher percentage cacao bars tend to be vegan). They're such great chocolate--high quality, not too sweet, and the squares are the perfect size to satisfy my sweet tooth.
I recently bought one these bars at Walgreens, I believe it was the Milk Chocolate one. It was pretty tasty and very creamy to say the least. However, I still prefer the Lindt chocolate balls over the bars any day!
Lindt has the most interesting flavors and they're all really good! The chili infused one is my favorite. The weird flavors are very subtle, but delicious. These chocolate bars work as wonderful stocking stuffers.
