A coworker and myself were told to try this chocolate one day when a frequent customer told us how amazing it was if we liked dark chocolate. Well, we both enjoy dark chocolate from time to time and decided to try it. We spit it out. That is how disgusting it was. I realize it is darker than other dark chocolates, but if you think you like dark chocolate but aren't in love with it, I would definitely recommend steering clear of this brand.
This is one of my favorite treats when I am dieting. I feel like a nice antioxidant rich square takes the edge off of my sweet tooth without blowing too many calories. The flavor is rich and almost fruity. It has a great balance of sweetness and the bitterness you expect from a quality dark chocolate. Plus they go on sale frequently at my local supermarket!!
I always have a couple of These frozen to snack on. These are just dark enough to still be sweet while not being sickening! Dark chocolate is good for your heart in moderation, and these are the perfect snack when sad, that time of the month, or when you need a quick chocolate fix without blowing your diet!
My guilty pleasure! Whenever I've had a bad day I curl up with Netflix and a few squares of this. The sea salt flavor really adds to it! Nothing destresses me after a long day like this. It's my favorite kind and brand I buy it all the time!
Lindt bars are by far my favorite chocolate. I especially like the extra dark variety and the kind with orange in it. I find that the chocolate is so satisfying that I only feel like I need to eat a piece or two at a sitting (weird, right?!). I think it's because it's less sugary and you get more chocolate "bang" for every bite.
The dark chocolate with sea salt is the perfect salty sweet combo even though it's dark so it's not overly sweet but it's delicious and better for you than a regular chocolate bar. When I'm dieting I usually treat myself with a square but they are good all the time
I used to buy the milk chocolate hazelnut bar, so amazing! It was creamy and sweet but the hazelnuts toned it down perfectly. It's relatively inexpensive at Walmart. Even bought some for people as gifts before and they loved it!
Great for cooking with (put it in cookies, mousse, etc) and even better for just plain eating! I really love the mint flavor, coconut, chili pepper and sea salt. For days I want just plain chocolate I go for the 70% cocoa. These all melt perfectly for cooking with and the consistency of the chocolate is spot on. Creamy, velvety and rich. I love this brand!!
I belive Lindt has some of the best chocolate that is readily available in the drugstore. It tastes very high quality and has a smoothness and butteriness that other chocolate just doesn't have. The variety of flavors is great and I would totally recommend!
I received a small sample of the sea salt variety while shopping the other day. I love salty and sweet snacks and was in heaven when I tried this. My only negative is that it wasn't until my second bite that I tasted the salty. The salt should be dispersed evenly throughout the bar for optimum taste.
