Lindt and its master chocolatiers have been making chocolate since 1885 and launched the first version of Lindor in 1955. The Lindor truffles as we know them today come in various varieties including dark chocolate, white chocolate, cookies and cream and milk chocolate which I am reviewing today.
These milk chocolate Lindor truffles consist of a milk chocolate spherical shell which is filled with a rich, smooth milk chocolate truffle centre.
These truffles are marketed as a fairly luxurious chocolate, the type you would purchase for special occasions or for a present which is reflected in the packaging. The box is red in colour with gold writing and decoration which makes it look like an expensive, high quality product. There is a clear plastic window on the front of the box allowing you to see the individually wrapped truffles inside.
On the back of the box you can find detailed product information including ingredients listings, nutritional information and storage instructions.
The truffles themselves as stated are individually wrapped in a red plastic wrapper which is twisted at each end. As these are individually wrapped it keeps them lovely and fresh and makes them perfect for sharing a box with friends.
These Lindor truffles can be purchased from most larger supermarkets and normally retail for £4.50 for a 200g box.
I was lucky enough to receive a box of these truffles for Christmas. The truffles are really easy to unwrap by twisting the two ends of the wrapper to reveal the glossy looking chocolate ball. You can smell the chocolate straight away which is sweet and mouthwatering. Biting though the chocolate shell is quite easy and makes a cracking sound. Once through the shell you hit the contrast in texture to the soft, smooth, deliciously creamy chocolate truffle centre which is very, creamy rich and indulgent. As these truffles are so rich I was only able to eat 2 or 3 at a time as they could easily get too sickly.
In my opinion these Lindor truffles are just delicious. They are certainly for people who have a sweet tooth and enjoy rich chocolates as they are very indulgent. I would certainly recommend these Lindor truffles as they are fantastic quality, taste amazing and are good value. A full 5 stars from me.
I have loved Lindt Lindor truffles ever since I first tasted them, and I remember them from my childhood days, being so gleeful at the thought of being allowed to have one individual ball of delight all for myself. They are luxurious and delicious truffles that can cheer me up after a depressing day, and just have that feeling of indescribable luxury to them. Lindt have always been a really reputable chocolate company that I have bought from, producing absolutely delicious tasting chocolate, and these Lindor truffles are no exception.
However, luxury does come with a price. For a 337g box of Lindt Lindor milk chocolate truffles from Tesco, you would have to pay up £7.00. Ouch. The truffles do feel like they have substance in them and at least the box is filled up to near the top, unlike most chocolate boxes you can find nowadays which try to rip you off. Though the box is quite large, there is not actually too much inside and the truffles can be consumed very quickly because they are so delicious. This means that it is your £7 that has been eaten away so quickly. Obviously, this is a very high price to pay and it is definitely not one of the things that I treat myself to on a day to day basis. Mostly, I just cross my fingers and hope that someone will be so considerate as to give me a box as a gift.
The packaging looks lovely and luxurious, with a classic looking red cardboard box with a smooth, slightly swirling design, and a small see through panel where you are given a glimpse of some of the truffles. The box can easily be opened so you can pick out the truffles. Lindor milk chocolate truffles are individually wrapped in luxurious red wrappers in order to retain freshness; also, this means that when you open the box of truffles, you do not have to finish the whole lot off that quickly.
The taste is simply delightful- smooth and rich and creamy. There is a lovely milk chocolate shell surrounding the truffle- you can either wait for this to melt in your mouth first or you can just dive in and take a nice big bite. The inside, and the most important aspect of the product, is the truffle. It is delicious and one of the best truffles I have had the luck to taste, being so creamy, rich and indulgent.
Being truffles, these do melt rather a lot, so I would store them in a cool place if I were you, especially in the warmer summer months. I find that on hot days, they can be rather melted inside their wrappers, and the truffle filling does not really melt in your mouth that much, since it has melted already. Of course, there is not much you can do to prevent this except to, perhaps, store them in the fridge- which is something I have considered doing, but never tried before.
Lindt Lindor also comes in other varieties, for example white chocolate and dark chocolate truffles, but the milk chocolate variety, that, I would say, is the most popular type of Lindor truffle, is my favourite.
This is also fantastic to give as a gift, since it looks fabulous and quite luxurious as well. £7 for a present could actually be considered as quite cheap, so you would not have to pay huge amounts to get something luxurious and expensive looking. What is more, it will probably be more appreciated than any other present you could have given since it is so delicious!
Altogether, these are some of the most delicious truffles I have ever tried, but unfortunately, they also come with a big price tag. However, it makes a lovely gift and I would choose this over a typical square box of chocolates any day. Due to the price, though, this is not a product I will be buying for myself all too often- maybe only for special occasions when I feel like I deserve a treat.
As a chocolate lover I have so many 'favourite' chocolates that it kind of takes away the meaning of favourite. However, these chocolates most definitely make the favourite list! I will always get a box of these off my parents at Christmas and birthdays and sometimes at other random times of the year to which there are no complaints from me!
This red box is the milk chocolate variety but you can also get other versions, i.e. dark ones, white ones etc. The box is about 7" tall and there are about 20 chocolates inside. These are just delicious but will not be great for the figure, firstly because they are calorific chocolates, secondly because once you've had one you'll want to eat them all!
The chocolates are individually wrapped in red and gold wrappers and look very pleasing to the eye. The actual chocolate is a little ball with smooth chocolate on the outside and a gorgeous creamy truffle section on the inside. Somehow they seem to retain a very cool temperature on the inside which gives a lovely cool, smooth texture in your mouth. They are small enough to put into your mouth in one go but easier to take 2 or 3 bits out of it. It doesn't really melt in your fingers which is good. They smell delicious, once you open the little wrapper and take the chocolate out it just smells divine!
They're often on offer in supermarkets and prices vary between establishments but generally they are around £4-£5. You can definitely buy them in Tescos, Sainsburys and Asda. Worth a purchase!
I first tried these balls of yumminess when my mum received a box a few years ago. Lindt started making chocolate back in 1845 and this specific product in 1967 and personally I am so glad they did.
The boxes come in 3 sizes 50g, 200g, 337g and they also have a variety of packets adapted for Christmas and Easter.
For a 50g box it costs around £1.49, a 200g box £4.99 and a 337g box £5.99. They can be found on offer occasionally with a pound off of 2 for £6 on the 200g boxes etc.
They come in a bright red box with a transparent panel to see the individual chocolates inside. A white pattern goes across the box diagonally and an oval panel at the top displays the product name.
These chocolates should be tried by everyone, even those who claim not to like chocolate (I challenge you not to like these!). Upon opening the individual wrapper you are greeted with a small ball of hard chocolate. This is a shell to the inside which is a solid truffle like mass but after putting in your mouth instantly dissolves into a cool, silky feeling of chocolate. These are not chocolates to be eaten quickly each one should be savoured slowly. Also keep them away from the kids (once you've tried them you won't want to share anyway!).
I'm so glad I have a box of these right now, even though rich and a few satisfy your needs you won't want to stop.
There are a variety of 7 other flavours but the milk is most definately the best and makes a fabulous gift for chocolate lovers everywhere.
I recieved a box of these the other days and despite being a huge lover of chocolate I wasn't too sure as to whether I'd like these as I am not a huge fan of truffles.
They cost between £3-£6 a box, depending on where you purchase them or whether they are on offer or not.
They are round shaped truffles with a smooth milk chocolate shell. It has a praline like centre that is smooth and rich.
The outer shell itself has to my favourite part it is smooth and milky and unlike other outer shells of chocolate it is not crisp. It os very soft and can easily melt in your fingers.
The centre is a very creamy, very smooth praline like centre. This part I must say I don't enjoy all that mush, due to it having a very rich chocolatley taste. Although it is not sweet, the taste is very strong and the praline centre is very thick which makes it taste all the more richer.
The truffles are ok, nothing that special, personally I think they could have been with being a little smaller as then they would be a little more managable due to being less rich.
Overall these are nothing special and I'd much rather much into a bar of Carbury's, or should I say Kraft chocolate!
Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles are quality soft centred chocolates from Lindt, a company which was in the business of chocolate making as along ago as 1845.
Originally only available in the form of a bar, Lindor appeared as soft centred balls of chocolate in 1967, indvidually wrapped as a Christmas tree decoration.
The wrapping may have changed over the years but the recipe is the same, to the delight of chocolate lovers the world over.
If you have never tried Lindor I can't begin to explain the delights that await you and you will only wonder at the reasons for not discovering this particular food of the Gods before now.
Pop one of these into your mouth you will find it immediately begins to melt and seduce your taste buds with a taste of pure heaven.
The milk chocolate shell momentarily deceives in its crispness because confined within is the most silky, creamy chocolate centre that you will ever encounter. Moreover because they are very rich you will feel satisfied after only a few ( honestly, okay I lied, it doesn't work for me but it may for you and I am working on it).
Personally I adore these but the chocolate purists among you may find the milk chocolate at 31% Cocoa solids on the light side. There is however a dark chocolate variety available with 60% Cocoa solids if that's your thing. but the original is definitely the one for me.
Lindt are justifiably proud of their reputation as Master Chocolatiers and although far from the cheapest in my opinion Lindor is one of the best chocolates there is.
Sainsbury's are currently offering 2 x 200g boxes for £6 or £4.05 each but even better value is the 150g bar at £1.98
These are quite possibly the most amazing chocolates in the world in my opinion. Expensive? Yes but well worth the price tag and you can seriously taste the quality in every precious mouthful, believe me!
Currently a 200g box of these milk chocolate truffle balls is around £3-4 in most supermarkets and both Sainsbury's and Tesco have them on offer at 2 boxes for £6 across the range. Apparently (or so a little bird tells me) Asda have just dropped their price to £2 for the same box on a special Easter promotion - but who knows how long this will last, grab yours now if you want to snap up this bargain!
Each 200g box contains around 12 balls of heaven. These are milk chocolate perfect globes, filled with a melting truffle centre. Each ball contains an artery clogging 4.5g of saturated fat and 70 calories (equating to 2 weight watchers points per ball!!!). Diet friendly these are not. But they do taste divine.
Each truffle is individually wrapped and this is very handy as these soft centred and incredibly smooth chocolates tend to start melting the very instant they come into contact with skin. Do not unwrap until you are totally ready to pop it into your mouth.
Now my other half will quite happily chuck each truffle into his mouth whole, but I think this makes them disappear too quickly. I tend to bite mine in half and have it as two delicious mouthfuls, even though this does generally result in sticky fingers as per the melting issue mentioned above.
The good thing about these truffles is that they are so rich and silky tasting that only one will be enough to take the edge of any chocolate craving. The down side is that they taste so unbelievably good you will forget all about the intention to simply stop the chocolate craving and will quite possibly eat half the box without noticing. Personally I feel like I slip into some kind of chocolate induced coma when I eat these, and willpower goes totally out of the window.
We absolutely love these chocolates in our house and I do think they are in a different league to most other chocolate ranges, way superior in quality and taste at any rate.
We are visiting Switzerland on a long weekend next month and I am hoping to stock up on plenty of Lindt products while we are out there, no doubt these Lindor balls will make up a fair proportion of the stuff we bring back!
Lindt is a top quality swiss chocolate maker and these milk chocolate balls are completely gorgeous. I have in front of me the 200g box of Lindor and I am finding it incredibly hard to try and make them last! On the front of the unusual hexagon red box the makers promise that these chocolates are Irresistibly Smooth - they are right.
Inside the box each chocolate is individually wrapped in shiny red foil and clear plasic with white flowers. The wrappers twist open very easily revealing a chocolate ball that gives off that unique not-made-in-england chocolate smell with just a hint of butter. My one complaint about these chocolates is that they are perhaps a bit on the large side - at 2.5cm in diameter they are a bit hard to pop straight into your mouth and still retain any sense of propriety and decorum.
Behind the chocolate shell is a slightly softer centre of truffle. Lindt promise on the back of the box that 'once you break into the shell the filing will melt and you so will you', I can't vouch for the latter but the truffle really does melt in your mouth.
The main ingredients is of course sugar. The chocolate contains 31% cocoa solids and 20% milk solids. There is a warning that it may contain traces of hazelnuts and almonds, for those who may have nut allergies.
Each box contains approx 18 chocolates. Although mine now has much less.
Some of the finest chocolates sold in the world right now are Lindt Lindor in the UK their currently on offer in Tesco and having recently tried some over the Christmas period it was rather impossible not to treat myself to a small box. Though the small box really is small, just 50g it looks wonderful and very sophisticated, with a mainly red design it also has gold and white on the box with a window in the centre allowing you to look through to the chocolates them selves in their own little wrappers. The box contains 4 balls of chocolate, each one with a shiny red, white and gold wrapper that looks exquisite and attractive, very pretty and tempting.
The box describes the treat as something special, and states "Once you break its shell, the filling will start to melt, and so will you", a huge promise and one that the little balls need to meet for people to want to re-buy them. When unwrapped from the wrapper they look like any old balls of chocolate, slightly larger than marble sized they look pretty average to be quite honest. Though you will quickly realise that this is the only "average" thing about them. The outer layer of chocolate tastes like of Kinder chocolate, sweet, milky and creamy, a delightful start to a chocolate that has much more to give. The layer is thick (several millimetres thick) Swiss chocolate that shows exactly why the country is so well regarded for chocolate, and it acts as a gorgeous shell to the wonderful centre inside that. A quick to melt latte flavoured soft chocolate that melts on your tongue and excites it over and over, setting your taste-buds on fire, just as premium chocolate should do. The centre ball is about the nice tasting chocolate you will ever find.
Milk, Soya and Barley Malt Extract
Almonds and Hazelnuts
As great as it is, it has rather large and major problems, problems that may see you feeling very let down in the end. No matter how slowly you eat them they never last long enough, they melt too quickly and even though it leaves your mouth drooling, you know it was just a short lived affair, which when coupled with the premium price makes them rather annoying, they have the addictive quality that so few chocolates do. They aren't what you'd be willing to share, this is a very selfish chocolate that will make you feel guilty for not sharing but you wouldn't want to share, this is something you are likely to feel "is mine". The taste, texture and quality is so amazingly brilliant that you may well end up with a new chocolate addiction and no one can blame you. Just make sure not to crunch through these or you'll end up wasting the brilliance of the chocolate, both the outer layer and the centre ball.
I was given a box of these last week for my birthday which reminded me of how much I love them. Given the choice of Cadburys or these Lindt Lindor I'm afraid I would have to say Americans you are welcome to our Cadburys. I'm not a selfish person but try to take one of my lindor balls away without me offering and I turn nasty.
As said in their own words:Inspired by a secret recipe, the master chocolatiers of Lindt have created a chocolate masterpiece. (I couldn't agree more)
Lindor chocolate comes in balls that you can't possibly eat in a rush. Each one individually wrapped. You have to savour every mouth watering taste of each one as you break through the outer shell and discover the silky filling. As they melt in your mouth releasing the best flavour and silky smooth feeling you've ever tried before.
Part of the experience is undoing the red foil style wrapper knowing what pleasure is inside.
You can buy 7 other flavours of these mainly separately in Whittards of Chelsea shops but I still always prefer the original Lindor.
All main supermarkets stock the boxes of these and the mixed varieties found in the boxed chocolates area or gift area if near xmas, mothers day etc.
If you want a taster then they do a mini box 50g with about 5 in, Costs approx £1.05.
200g costs approx £4.00 and
337g costs approx £6.00.
After abit of research discovered that 1 ball has approx 79 calories, so if you eat 10 that's still under your daily calorie intake..(dont recommended to just eat these all day though
Who can resist to go and try these now.
This Christmas my brother & sister-in-law gave me a "Girl's indulgent night in" gift-set which contained a 250ml bottle of Gallo Family Vineyards White Grenache (Rose wine), a wine glass and some Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles. I had already drank the wine, so now it was time for the Lindt Lindor Milk Truffles.
Untwisting open the plastic red and white wrapper of one of the truffles unveiled a milk chocolate ball. It didn't particularly look special, but that's not important. What's most important is it's taste. I popped the whole thing in my mouth... Ohh, the milk chocolate tasted delicious! Biting into it revealed the velvety smooth milk chocolate truffle inside. It was like melted chocolate, so satisfying, coating the inside of my mouth with its goodness. For a moment, I felt satisfied, I wouldn't need another... But just seconds later I wanted more! Only 3 of these Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles had come with my "Girl's indulgent night in" gift-set and, being lactose intolerant, I'm not supposed to eat them anyway, but they're so nice! All 3 were consumed in quick succession and I still wanted more. However, I think if I'd have had more than the supplied 3, I think I might have had that sickly feeling (as well as feeling ill later on).
I've always been a Cadburys girl (before being diagnosed lactose intolerant, obviously), but these Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles are heaven in a wrapper! They are so delicious and I now know that if I'm ever stuck on what to buy somebody I will buy them a bag or box of these Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles in the full knowledge that the recepient will love them.
These chocolate truffles come in Lindor's cornet box sizes of 50g, 200g and 337g, as well as in a lovely pillow shaped gift box and a 137g "self indulgent" bag. At Christmas time, you may also find them in gift sets, as I did.
As I was given my Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles, I can't say how much was paid for them (that and they came in a gift-set), but to give you an idea... Waitrose currently sell the 50g box of Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles for 99p.
At any price, these Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles are certainly worth treating yourself to, in my opinion!
I am currently in possession of a horrible cold. It has knocked me for six and I have been moaning about it to everyone who will listen. Including all of you! However, there is an upside to this, and that is the following: I have been given chocolates! And not just any chocolates, but lovely, expensive chocolates that I would never buy for myself. I have been given... Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles.
Lindt are master chocolate makers who have been producing gorgeous chocolates for many years. Their Lindor truffles are no exception. They are smooth milk chocolate balls, inside which are soft, meltable chocolate fillings. The outside chocolate shell is like the creamiest, highest quality milk chocolate you can imagine, and the inside is a slightly gooey, sweet, chocolatey masterpiece that will dissolve on your tongue. I always bit carefully into the chocolate shell, exposing the inside, and then coax the inside out with my teeth and allow it to melt in my mouth. Lovely!
The truffles come in red boxes with gold writing and a cellophane window so that you can see the sweets inside. They are individually wrapped in red and gold. You can buy them in three sizes:
50 grams (about four chocolates!): 85 pence
200 grams: £3.90
337 grams: £5.86
The smallest box is not at all satisfying and is quite a tease, the middle box contains a reasonable amount and the largest box will keep you going for a couple of days at least! At the moment, Sainsbury's have an offer on where the largest box is £3.90, just like the middle box, so it is good value!
The box doesn't have any information about calories on it, but seeing as the first ingredient is sugar, I guess these probably aren't too good for you. An occasional indulgence shouldn't harm you much though.
The only gripe I have with these is that they really are very expensive and as such they are really only suitable for very special occasions. Or when you have a cold! :)
These chocolates have got to be some of the most delicious chocolates I have ever tasted.
Lindt is a Swiss chocolate company who make really good quality chocolates.
These particular chocolates are in my opinion some of the finest in the Lindt range.
Lindor chocolates are individually wrapped chocolates. They are milk chocolate truffles, not dark chocolate, with a chocolate shell on the outside and a smooth melting filing on the inside.
If you just suck them for a few seconds they just melt in your mouth.
I haven't met a single person who doens't like these chocolates. I bought a box at Christmas and took them into work and the ladies couldn't believe how nice they were. They would never have picked them off the shelves in a shop before, but they will now!
They can be a little pricey, around £4 however you can catch them on offer at Morrison's or Tesco's for a decent price. You can also buy little miniture boxes which cost £1 which are idea to finish a present off!
Can also get different flavours, hazelnut, orange, mixed, raspberry (however wouldn't recommend the latter as they taste synthetic).
You must try these if you haven't already! That is unless you don't like chocolate, or only like dark chocolate, which is just weird.
The first time I had these was as a birthday present and I now absolutely love them! The classic version is milk but they do come in dark, orange, white, mint, raspberry peanut butter and hazelnut varieties. The milk ones are the ones I like most and the ones that you are most likely to see in the shops.
Lindt, a well-known brand who make delicious chocolate, makes Lindor!
These come in a strange shaped red box (other flavours come in different coloured boxes) and each is individually wrapped. They come in three sizes, 50gram, 200gram and 337gram. They aren't particularly cheap their RRP is 99p, £3.79 and £5.99 respectfully.
The chocolate is a perfect sphere. The outside is a thick layer of smooth milk chocolate and then when you get inside that is a filling of the most delicious truffle that melts in your mouth. The truffle is very creamy and luxurious.
They aren't the type of thing that you can sit down and eat a lot of you will enjoy them and want the pleasure to last as long as possible!
These are bound to be a firm favourite of any chocolate lover; they are a great present idea.
I'm afraid that I'm one of those that got caught up with the whole "healthy eating" affair, that somehow later transformed into the painful "avoid all chocolate" affair. Long have I left all those chocolate bars in dusty drawers, all the opened chocolate opened but uneaten and hid in cupboards anything even mildly related to the chocolate category. Too long, evidently, for when I recieved a box of Lindt Lindor for Christmas, the taste was almost foreign.
Initially I believed it to be because of this needless abandonment of everyone's favourite treat, but I soon came to realise it as something more than that. Lindt is on a totally different level (and, unfortunately, price range) to all other chocolates. I remember munching on these and trying desperately to think of an adequate description to satisfy my own...well, satisfaction as well as my gift giver's generosity. I sat there, chewing and chewing, but no words came to mind. Finally, though, one simplistic simile did: "it's like eating clouds", I said. And it really was.
You unwrap these, and it's essentially a magnified malteser as far as appearance goes. But chocolate is all in the taste, is it not? So one bites into these and, beneath the chocolate shell, there is more chocolate...but this core is soft, creamy, perhaps swishy?
It's so difficult to appreciate other chocolate when one has tried Lindt. Lindt Lindor is essentially the chocolate bar, but in candy wrapper form I guess. It's convenient as I always had trouble with opening chocolate bar wrappers suitably; with these, I can open the box, grab one and walk off. But my own actions degrade this product! This is a product that I wouldn't mind, and have, given as a gift as well as obviously recieved. Lindt Lindor is a true treat.
