      Divine chocolate by Lindt.

      lindt makes some of the finest chocolates amongst other swissh chocolate makers. Besides their elegant assorted chocolate boxes, they also have reasonably priced chocolate bars.

      Lindt Excellence white coconut chocolate is one such bar that says Lindt & Sprungli at the back of the wrapper. The wrapper is made of a nice thick glossy white paper and in the front is a yellow background and o that on the top it says Lindt Excellence in golden and white coconut in white. It's a 100 gm bar (so it says on the wrapper).

      It says on the back that it's an exotic chocolate with fine coconut enrobed in smooth melting white chocolate. All you white chocolate lovers have a real treat here to satisfy your sweet tooth.

      The calorie count is obviously quite a bit high (2400 per serving) and this is not for those weight watchers. If at all you feel tempted to eat, just take a bite of the cube which itself is not that small. The moment you take a bite, you will feel the chocolate melting and making it's way through your taste buds and the lovely tasting coconut essense will make it's presence felt at the same time.

      I enjoyed every bite of it and so will you.

        Lindt & Sprüngli, I love the name. I’m not sure why but I think it’s cool. The chocolate is another matter however! The chocolate comes wrapped in shiny, coated paper, which is mostly white in colour but also features some yellowy background colour and brown lettering. The colours immediately give you a clue about the type of chocolate contained before you even look at the picture of the vanilla flowers and sailing ship (although I’m not sure what the ship has to do with proceedings!). It’s clear that the chocolate is white, or ‘Lindt Excellence White Natural Vanilla Extra Fine White Chocolate’ if you wish to be really over the top about it. The Lindt brand name and logo appears in gold, making the chocolate look expensive, and at £1.05 (approx) it is pretty expensive. In Tavistock on Saturday I saw it on sale for £1.20, so who knows what the most expensive bar costs! Clearly the price is variable, so you might want to shop around. The back of the pack, meanwhile seems to read ‘makers of chocolate since 1845’, it’s got to be good then, eh?! It also states that it contains a minimum of 30% cocoa solids and 20% milk solids, which I’m sure is more than most of the cheaper alternatives. Inside the outer wrapper is a foil inner wrapper, great for freshness I’m sure the advert would say, and within the inner foil wrapper is the chocolate, indented with the brand name and some diagonal lines. The pieces are almost square, being a little over 4cm in one direction and a little under 4cm in the other. At only 5mm thick (or thin!) there isn’t really that much in a pack (100g it says on the wrapper), especially when you realise that the bar is actually re-inforced with some cardboard. Thus, when you open it up you might get a bit of a nasty surprise! In my estimation, there were about 8 squares originally, which doesn’t make it terribly easy to share effectively. When cold i
        t cracks crisply, but it melts easily in your mouth and is very smooth and creamy. It’s extremely sweet, perhaps a little too much for my taste. It doesn’t taste much like your conventional white chocolate but it’s not a taste I can really describe. It’s creamy, very sweet, has a slight sour-cream taste about it too, a hint of vanilla about it, but other than that, there isn’t much I can say about it!!! After three blocks I feel a little ill, possibly a good thing if you are trying to cut back on the amount of chocolate you eat. Listed ingredients are; sugar, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, butterfat whey powder, emulsifier (soya lecithin) and natural vanilla flavour. The pack warns (in very small writing) that it may contain traces of peanuts, hazelnuts and almonds (but curiously no coconut which forms part of one of their other bars) so this product would be risky for anyone with a nut allergy. So there it is, white chocolate in a nutshell. I think I will stick to my Milkybars in the future…. The Milkybars are on me! (I REALLY like Lindt Lindor chocolates though – yum!! Can I write about them here?!!! - It seems I can write about them here... so I will.... in an update... promise {;0) )

          Passion for Chocolate. That's what the Lindt "Maitres Chocolatiers" (Masters of Chocolate to us!) are expressing in their "Excellence" range. Apparently. *All* of their passion for chocolate no less.... Having tasted the wonderful creamy but slightly crunchy " Coconut" white chocolate bar by Lindt, the passion is palpable... Now apparently dooyoo only have the one category to cover all Lindt chocolate. Big mistake - how can you describe in any detail the delights of each Lindt bar in one opinion? Right now I'm a one chocolate woman and the one I'm going to write about is Lindt's "Coconut" White from their Excellence range. <Note that under the competent leadership of that Murphy chocolate-loving woman this has now changed to there being a particular category for Lindt white chocolate!> You know by the Lindt label that you are selecting a serious chocolate when you first pick it off the shelf. All those years making chocolate don't count for nothing. They've been doing it since 1845 you know, and from what I've tasted in this amazingly sensual bar, doing it rather well. I'm afraid I found it rather difficult to piece the wrapper together once I'd consumed most of the bar...ripped it off I'm afraid -no delicate unwrapping this time, no peeling the paper and foil delicately apart. *Oh* no! This was a rip-it-off-and-let-me-taste-it moment. A moment of desire..of fantasy and of ecstatic fulfilment.. Did you know that the description of the bar in Italian reads "cioccolato bianco con fiocchi di cocco" ? Try saying that in your best sexy voice. Ever seen "A Fish Called Wanda"? Remember the effect on Jamie Lee Curtis of John Cleese speaking a foreign language? Say no more. It comes in a shiny golden-coloured wrapper embossed with gold foil and with a picture
          of a square ( nothing so common as a piece with this one! ) of this delectable confection nestling among juicy slices of coconut. Speaking of squares, after my orgiastic feasting on the bar, I've just one square left to savour as I write. The bar is divided into squares which snap more satisfyingly than... ooops, nearly forgot this is a family forum...well, they snap very satisfyingly. Choose your own image at this point. The squares are smooth and slim but a very satisfying size and bear the imprint "Lindt" so there can be no doubt about what you're slipping into your mouth. As you bite into it the taste floods your senses as you're aware of a delightful crunchiness hiding inside that smooth sleek exterior. Now I'm not a Bounty woman myself. Nice ads if you like the idea of tropical paradise, but I've always found Bounty just that tad difficult to swallow. To be honest I'd rather just spit all that coconut right out. Not so with this naughty Swiss delight. It melts in the mouth, and leaves only a little firm crunchy coconut behind for you to play around your tongue. This is a chocolate to be reckoned with. "An exotic chocolate with flakes of coconut enrobed in smooth melting white chocolate" as those Chocolate Masters put it. Forget the Milky Bar kid, this is real grown up's white chocolate. What is it they say about the French? I think I just found my new passion.
