This is a very good chocolate and dark chocolate (75% and up) is not as bad for you as milk chocolate...but, doesn't mean you have to finish the whole bar in one time : )
If you want to spoil yourself this is how you do it. I love the variety. It is hard to find dark chocolate that is as dark as the Lindt Excellence Bars, so thank you Lindt!
This bar of dark chocolatey goodness is reasonably priced while boasting delicious quality cocoa! Perfect for when you're craving a chocolate treat that is not too sweet!
It's not easy to find really dark chocolate (over 65%) in the stores - but Lindt makes a great variety and is often found in most supermarkets. Not quite as good as a more expensive brand, but for the price, it may be the best priced, good chocolate out there!
I recently used this chocolate for some candy making, the best part was the chocolate coating!. This chocolate is extremely good dark chocolate very creamy and melts nicely for baking and such
Anything above 70% cocoa is too bitter for me if I am eating it alone. However, I like medium sweet wines and the bitterness of the darker chocolate pairs fabulously.
This is a family favorite stocking stuffer. The white chocolate, and the chili are the most popular in our house. Santa and Mrs. Claus have to get a bar to share during stocking stuffer duty!
I love the variety in Lindt chocolate bars! I only wish that the chocolate was less sweet. If you're picking up a chocolate bar, try the sea salt or chile pepper one!
This is my favorite type of chocolate! The texture is smooth and rich. It literally melts in your mouth and leaves you wanting more. Perfection in a chocolate bar
These chocolate bars are delicious and fairly priced, I'll always love the 85% cocoa flavor. Great value, I always pick one or two up from Target sometimes and the taste never gets old.
