I'm a dark chocolate freak. For me, I love the extremely dark chocolates. This Lindt chocolate bar has just a hint of sweetness but plenty of chocolate flavor. Love this bar.
Slightly sour aftertaste that I don't care for in the 85% bar. I didn't notice it in the sweeter bars. I prefer other brands, but would use this in baking with no problem.
Lindt chcolate is always a great buy. I usually pick up the 85% to make brownies (it's not too sweet and not too bitter) its a great chcolate to have with a bottle of wine!
Love this one or the 90%. REAL Chocolate...less sugar..Tastes Great when you freeze it! I always have on hand, I low carb and this is my snack. A square of this is very satisfying and low carb. Delish...Keep a stash in the freezer!
These are delicious a bit strong if you are used to eating milk chocolate, what is truly amazing is if you use the double boiler method and incorporate it into a browner or cupcake mixture and it makes the most amazing dessert.
I love dark chocolate and the fact that I can get this dark of chocolate with this intense of flavor is amazing. Not only is dark chocolate better for your waistline (less milk and milk fats) but its also better for your heart.
Lindt chocolate bars are the best! So many yummy flavors, and high quality taste. Their bars are so rich and luxurious, you'll never go back to Hershey's that's for sure!
I love dark chocolate, 75% or darker is my favorite. I have bought this brand from my discount store for really cheap price too. They have good chocolate truffles too.
My to go chocolate bar if I am out of my single sourced chocolate bar. You can find them at every drugstore. I usually stock up when they go on sale. A healthier way to satisfies my sugar craving. I like the 85% the best.
I am a big fan of dark chocolate and I mean really dark. Lindt is the only really dark chocolate available in my area and it is so creamy and yummy. I just love it. :)
