Advantages: Smooth chocolate of a superior kind., Cherry is absolutely fantastic, the centre is almost like a liqueur - it's got a good kick to it., Raspberry is my second favourite; excellent taste, just unlike any raspberry I've ever tasted.
Disadvantages: None, unless you don't like chocolate., appeals to a different palate than Mars or Milky Way., These two might be a bit too potent for young kiddies.
Lindt is one of the superior chocolatiers in the inexpensive price range, but their quality is easily noted as soon as you pop that first piece of chocolate into your mouth. Just let it melt. Savour the flavour. The texture. Forget the calories, the fat, the inches on your hips. This is indulgence, this is chocolate heaven at a price anyone can afford.
They have a whole range - milk chocolate in the blue wrapper, white chocolate, truffle - but my favourites are two with liquid centres. One is raspberry. The other cherry.
We came across them by chance. Hubby had gone to the shops and came back with a bar of the cherry as a treat. Oh my, we were hooked. Pretty soon, every time I sent him down there for something, he'd be bringing me back one of these, then it got to where he'd get us both one. Now he is not a choccy fan ... so you know something was going on! The cherry filling is almost like a liqueur, tart and tangy with a definite kick.. Very satisfying to the adult tastebuds. A whole lotta oomph in each little section. This was the first chocolate bar that I could actually enjoy simply by popping a piece in my mouth, and allowing it to melt. Wow! I could make the bar last ages. It was an experience, not just a bar of chocolate.
Then one day, hubby returned from the shops without the object of our affections. The shelf had been empty, he said, not a bar of cherry in sight. My anticipation hung in the air, like a rock! Then he smiled a little and said,
"It's not cherry but they had this one, so I thought you might like to give it a try".
The wrapper was a similar red, and it was still a Lindt bar. Thus was my introduction into the delights of the raspberry bar.
To me, although exquisite in its flavour and with the same melt-in-your-mouth tendencies as the cherry, this doesn't really taste of RASPBERRIES. It is excellent, tart and tangy like the cherry, but unlike anything ras
pberry that I have ever known. It is definitely different, and doesn't have the kick that the cherry has.
These two bars give you excellent quality chocolate, as is usual with the Lindt name, at an affordable price but also something more. They tantalise your tastebuds with a naughty-but-nice air. You won't be able to say "no" once you've tried them. Trust me. I'm a chocoholic.
