As a diabetic, it was always difficult to satisfy my sweet tooth/chocolate cravings because of the high sugar content of my favorite candy. Enter the 85% Lindt Excellence Chocolate Bars.....just the right amount of sweet without blowing my carb intake and a nice smooth dark chocolate taste that I crave. Perfect!!
So smooth! This is a good, accessible chocolate. You can find it in most grocery stores, but the quality is jsut as good as many artisan and jonny-come-lately brands. If you've never tried a high-end chocolate, and have only been eating Hershey's, find a lindt and try it. see how smooth it feels on the tongue!
I really like Lindt 70% Cocoa ... it has a very smooth texture and that good chocolate bite but not overly bitter. I'm pretty picky Dark chocolate eater and I don't eat it often so I don't skimp around when it comes to that treat. Its not as well priced as Dove dark chocolate but its not outrageous. I would consider and upper end of middle of the rd price range. If you need a chocolate fix it will definitely hit the mark.
I love Lindt chocolates! They have a huge variety of flavors, fit for any palate. Their truffles make a great gift. If you're lucky enough to live near a Lindt retail store, check it out and take advantage of the sales and bulk prices. I am a picky chocolate eater. I despise Hershey chocolate and most other American made chocolate. Luckily, Lindt bars are available anywhere, even your average grocery store, Wal Mart or Target.
I have been a fan of Lindt chocolate for many years now. The taste is excellent and sweet. I have only tried a couple of flavors for the bars but the ones I have tried have never failed me. I like the variety of flavors and the accessibility, as well as the price.
Dark chocolate has a bite, but I don't like when the bitter taste lingers—and Lindt has perfected this. The chocolate doesn't overwhelm the flavors like orange or black currant, and a square or two is enough to satiate you. It's a great after-dinner dessert.
This is what true indulgence is all about. I always get mine at Walmart, they usually have the best deals! My favorite flavor is the sea salt, I know it sounds bizarre but it's the perfect balance of sweet and salty
This is by far my favorite chocolate. I keep Orange Intense, orange pieces and almond flakes, in my refrigerator and break off pieces when I'm feeling particularly sweet-toothed. A small piece is very satisfying, but the bars still don't last long around me.
I really like the Lindt Touch of Sea Salt Bar! It adds just a hint of salt to the perfect sweet chocolate for something that delights my taste buds. I do like Lindt and purchase it often for my ounce a day for health, yet I prefer a non-swiss variety of chocolate better. I give Lindt an A because it is literally my first go to for everyday chocolate.
This is the best grocery store chocolate available! The only way you're getting better chocolate is if you go to a chocolate boutique lol. The bars a HUGE, come in several different combinations like intense cranberry or sea salt...so many unique flavors.
