Lindt makes an excellent deep dark chocolate. It is smooth and delicious. The 85% cocoa has the bitterness that you want in a dark chocolate but it isn't overwhelming and there is still the flavor of sweet chocolate. Love the extra darks.

Lindt Chocolate Bars are by far the best tasting chocolate bars on the market. My favorite is the sea salt caramel flavor. Unlike other brands I find that the taste of the bar tends to stay in your mouth after the bite has been swallowed. Rich flavor, but not overwhelmingly so.

I realize that I can't be the only one that likes my chocolate this dark because they obviously sell it. I just don't run into those people. I sing the praises of the 90% because at the end of the day it tastes good and is good for me.

My aunt worked at Lindt for quite awhile so that meant I always had stacks and stacks of Lindt chocolate in my house. (I wasn't complaining!) Their Excellence bars are absolutely delicious, creamy and full of flavor. One of my favorites!

My husband buys me these chocolate bars to use when baking cookies at Christmas. I use

My husband buys me the dark chocolate bars to use in my cookies; especially at Christmas. The chocolate is so creamy. When you bite into a warm chocolate chunk cookies using Lindt chocolate.....it melts in your mouth! Now I've made myself hungry for one! ;-)

Sea Salt is definitely my favorite!! It's just too good. I can't get enough of this chocolate and since it's dark it has way less calories than regular chocolate. Love it!

Lindt does an amazing job with the infused dark chocolate flavors. My favorites are orange and chili. Though I will say remember that the high percentage dark chocolate bars are not sweet! Big bites may leave you in a coughing fit :)

I've never been a huge fan of dark chocolate but for this line its tolerable at 60-70%. I've tried going for the higher % but its just too bitter for my taste. Does taste better in smaller increments so I guess thats the best way to try if you want to get into the darker stuff.

Lindt offers high quality chocolate, and I love their dark chocolate! It's also great for diet! If you are hungry, take just a little brick of high cocoa content dark choco bar (yes, just a little piece) and it kicks the hunger away. So good for a between meal snack!!!

You can beat the price tag for the quality you get. Lindt has flavors to satisfy anyone's taste buds from an array of Dark Chocolates (cocoas in several percentages) to coconut and simple nut bars. If you crave it, they make it.
