Lindt have been producing chocolate since 1845. Talk about variety in chocolate! There are loads of different chocolates available by Lindt. I have just been given some of these delicious mini eggs by my daughter as part of my birthday present! What great taste in chocolates she has! She presented them to me with a lovely red little garland on the packet, which went well with the Lindor packaging. Lindor chocolates are really packaged well, making the product even more tempting. The packet is red with what looks a bit like white snow drops down one side. At the top of the packet in a sideways oval shape is the word Lindt (printed in gold with its stamp) and underneath, Lindor, printed in white. Towards the bottom of the packet is a see through oval shape with a bit cut out and 3 little lindor eggs to the side. The packaging states that the eggs are 'Irresistibly smooth (milk chocolates eggs with a smooth melting filling). I am certainly not going to disagree with this statement! The chocolate is very creamy, smooth and the centre tastes amazing; really melting in the mouth. My daughter got me a 160g packet. I am unable to tell you the cost of these eggs, but i must advise you that chocolate such as this is not exactly cheap. Now and again, its well worth treating yourself though! ~~~INGREDIENTS~~~ Sugar vegetable fat cocoa butter cocoa mass whole milk powder butterfat lactose skimmed milk powder emulsifier(soya lecithin) malt extract(barley) flavourings These Lindor mini eggs may also contain traces of almonds and hazelnuts The one thing i have noticed about this packet is that it does not state the calorie intake. However, i have found out that there are 30 kcals per egg. Although they are called mini eggs , they arn't actually that mini. I wouldn't recommend you fill your face with these; you need to savour their taste, so i would only eat maybe one or two at a time. If you ate too many, you could be sick as they are quite rich. I am awarding these mini chocolate eggs 4 stars rather than 5; due to the fact that calorie information is not provided on the packaging.
I love Lindt chocolate but it is so expensive that I rarely treat myself to it. However after Easter this year I noticed that Asda were selling off certain products for 25 per cent of their original price. Because of this I managed to pick up a packet of these Mini Lindt Eggs for just 54 pence, whereas usually they would cost over £2. The red plastic packet contains lots of little chocolate eggs that are individually wrapped in red and white foil. Supposedly they should taste just like Lindt Lindor truffles, as they have a hard chocolate outer shell, and chocolate truffle inside. However I didn't particularly enjoy the eggs. There is very little truffle inside and even though the eggs are tiny, if you bite into one you will find a big gap which should really be filled with truffle, next to a tiny little blob of truffle! The chocolate itself also doesn't seem as tasty as the usually Lindt chocolate and for some reason has a bit of a cheap tang to it. Of course I still managed to finish off the packet in a couple of sessions, but I didn't particularly enjoy the eggs and even at 75 per cent off I wouldn't buy them again! As usual with Lindt there is no nutritional information on the packet so I am unable to tell you much aside from the fact that I am sure the eggs are filled with fat, saturates, sugar and calories!
I was given a Lindt Lindor mini egg for Easter this year and was very excited about eating it as Lindt is one of my favourite chocolateers. The egg is quite small, about the size of a Cadbury's creme egg. It comes wrapped in a red foil wrapper that is pretty decorated with gold and white writing and design. The ingredients are printed in ver small writing at the bottom of the packaging which is very hard to read without a magnifying glass which might be offputting to some people who may need to know exactly what is in the egg. Ingredients (so that you don't have to struggle reading it off of the packaging): Sugar, vegetable fat, cocao butter, whole milk powder, skimmed milk powder, milk fat, malt extract, emulsifier, flavourings. May contain traces of peanuts, hazelnuts and almonds. The actual egg has a pretty design that has been printed on to the chocolate ensuring that it is a luxurious in appearance as it is in taste. It is quite unique in this way. When you bite into the egg the outer shell is crisp but not too tough allowing an easy bite into the soft truffle centre. The taste of this chocolate is nothing other than design and I must confess that I have not tried a chocolate that is anywhere near as good as this one both in terms of appearance and taste. It is truly a luxurious chocolate as are many other Lindt products. Lindt chocolates are quite expensive but as a treat now and then, or as a gift for somebody else, they will be truly enjoyed and gratefully received. If you have tried any Lindt product before and are not sure if you will like them and do not wish to spend out a considerable amount of money onn a large box, then I suggest that you buy one of these eggs to try. I am sure that you will love it. Overall this is a fantastic and luxurious chocolate that is well worth the price.
I was pretty good over Easter - I didn't eat any chocolate at all, being on a diet, but after Easter I decided I deserved a little treat and bought myself a bag of these Lindt Lindor Mini Eggs, as they were half price - only £1.00 instead of £1.99. The Mini Eggs are tiny replicas of the single Lindor Eggs. Each one is wrapped in red foil with the Lindt logo on. I had a pack of the milk chocolate eggs but you can also buy mixed packs (gold-coloured) of milk, dark and white eggs. These eggs are so cute - I think they would be perfect to serve with a cup of coffee as an after-dinner treat at an Easter dinner party. Alternatively, you can just polish off a bag like I did! Each bag is 200g and contains roughly 20 eggs. There is no nutritional information on the pack, which is probably just as well as I can't imagine these eggs are good for you! The taste of these eggs is simply divine. Each egg has a fairly thick chocolate shell with smooth creamy chocolate fondant inside. The chocolate is very smooth and melts very easily, so watch out, it's easy to get chocolate all over your fingers! The fondant melts in the mouth very easily and you will soon find yourself reaching for another egg. Lindt chocolate is unique - in my opinion it's some of the nicest milk chocolate around, and the dark and white flavours are pretty good too. If you like the sound of these hurry to the shops, Easter is over so they will probably be on special offer and will go quickly!
I have been, well, 'egg-ceedingly' good on my diet over Easter this year, I informed everyone that they were not to buy me any chocolate and surprisingly only one person did. I didn't complain when my niece handed me a bag of Lindt Lindor Mini Eggs as, frankly, who would? These are tiny replicas of the standard size Lindor egg, the bag I received contained 20 small eggs all of which are individually wrapped in the luxurious looking red and gold foil. The chocolates are divine, I could end my review there but unfortunately I am nowhere near the minimum word count. Each egg consists of a relatively thick milk chocolate shell and is filled with a smooth chocolate fondant filling. The thing I adore about these mini eggs is that, by design, there is far less filling than in the larger Lindor eggs and therefore the eggs are not as sickly. To describe the taste of Lindor chocolate is 'eggstremely' difficult. The chocolate shell itself is easy, it's simply the very best tasting chocolate I have eaten in a long time. It's a very soft chocolate which will begin to melt as soon as you lay your fingers on it, actually that is a little annoying when it comes to these eggs as the small size of the causes the chocolate to melt even quicker and this can lead to the problem of foil sticking to the chocolate and refusing to budge unless you dig your nails in to remove the pesky foil. Yes, Lindor chocolate can be a very messy 'eggsperience'. The fondant is the component of this chocolate that I am having trouble describing, the words I come up with simply will not do justice to this wonderful chocolate. The fondant melts to an almost liquid consistency within seconds of popping it into your mouth, as soon as the outer shell has melted the fondant will begin heating up and then suddenly you will have the most delicious creamy chocolate in your mouth. The melting process is rather sudden and this unfortunately means that sometimes, particularly with these small eggs, the filling of the egg is almost gone before you have even realised it was there - and then you'll find yourself reaching out for another one. Lindor Mini Eggs are 'eggstraordinarily' addictive, I am rather proud of myself that I have managed to savour this bag and still have a couple of eggs left even after four days. This may not sound like much of a feat but, although dieting, I am a confirmed chocoholic - honestly I shall be glad when they're gone and the temptation has been removed! I am not sure how readily available Lindor Mini Eggs are now Easter has been and gone, I imagine some of the small independent shops will continue to stock them for a while and supermarkets are already slashing the prices of their Easter leftovers so you may be in for a bargain if you look around. Myself, I completely recommend them. A standard size Lindor egg is far too sickly for me, and recently I have found even the small Lindor chocolates seem too rich, so personally this much smaller version is ideal as I can enjoy all the flavour of Lindor without the horrible bloated feeling afterwards.
Lindt Lindor Mini Eggs have to be one of my favourite things about Easter...If you think that seems far-fetched you obviously haven't tried them yet! Cadbury's Creme Egg, Mini Eggs...they have nothing on these! Lindt Lindor eggs come individually wrapped in pretty red foil with the trademark Lindt logo. You can buy them separately in bags (around £1.70 for a 200g bag), or if you really want to splash out you can buy the Lindt Lindor easter egg the comprises of a large milk chocolate egg with Lindt Lindor eggs beneath. If you haven't tried regular Lindt Lindor chocolates, then you really are in for a treat...the chocolate eggs (just like the chocolates) are made with Lindt's decadently smooth milk chocolate and contain a truly melt-in-your-mouth truffle praline filling. VARIETIES: Milk: As above Dark: Like the classic Lindor egg but comprising of dark chocolate. Assorted: A selection including milk, dark and white chocolate Lindor eggs. Stracciatella: Inspired by the Italian ice-cream (cookies and cream) the Stracciatella egg comprises of smooth white chocolate with crunchy milk chocolate cookie pieces and a melting white chocolate truffle filling...hard to find, but worth it! Peanut Butter: A combination of melt-in-your-mouth milk chocolate and rich peanut butter...yummy! The different varieties can be hard to find in the UK but are available in all Lindt Lindor outlets. Sadly the UK Lindt website does not offer online sales but you can order from the Swiss website. The only down side is that Lindor eggs are very high in saturated fat (see below). However, they're very rich so you'll find you're not (too) tempted to over-indulge!

Easter in Mexico is about religion more than chocolate, and they don't stretch to much in the way of goodies. Luckily I had a back-up plan - a mother coming to stay with a few chocolaty treats. I asked for surprises and one of them was these mini eggs. Lindt Lindor truffles are something I never tire of, so I was pleased to receive the Mini Egg version. The eggs come in a 100g bag and are individually wrapped inside, which keeps them fresh though the foil can be fiddly to get off since they are so small. Long nails are a bonus and my neatly filed ones just frustrated me. The normal Lindor truffles are circular, but these mini eggs are shaped more like tiny rugby balls, I suppose to appear festive. I did miss the inny/outy belly buttons of the normal Lindor though (look next time you're scoffing the round ones, and you'll see what I mean). Though they are tiny, I still tend to bite into them rather than swallow them whole, just to make them last longer. The mini eggs are made from thick Lindt chocolate and filled with a smooth chocolate truffle. They are not full to bursting, and if you leave them to sit for a bit and then eat them, you find the centre part has settled to one side, leaving a small gap as well. However since these are very rich you wouldn't really want any more filling inside, so you're not missing out. This also makes them less messy to eat, since the filling doesn't squirt out as you bite into them. I don't keep chocolate in the fridge in England but in Mexico it's a necessity unless you want a blob of goo in place of the nice chocolate egg you were expecting. These actually taste very nice straight from the fridge. The hollow chocolate keeps them for getting too tough to bite through, and the filling tastes slightly thicker than when you leave them at room temperature, more like a semi-solid truffle than a runny one. These are the milk chocolate version of Lindor, a range which includes flavours from mint to orange to coffee to nut but, I think, is most know for the original, red-wrapped milk chocolate variety. The centre is milk chocolate and the coating is milk chocolate, but you get two different tastes since one is in truffle form. The chocolates are very sweet, but also luscious. They melt in your mouth (and leave a sticky mess on your fingers if you hold them for too long unwrapped). The chocolate becomes silky as you eat them, and slides over your tongue in a delicious way. Because of their small size, they turn to liquid quicker than, say, sucking on a piece of Galaxy or Dairy Milk, but I still like to let them melt in this way since they make the flavour last longer. They're the perfect treat for people who like plain, simple chocolate uncomplicated by silly things like nuts or fruit or other chewy bits. I really like their plainness because as far as chocolate is concerned, I'm unadventurous - nuts and the like scare me if I don't know they're coming, so pure and simple chocolates are just my thing. Though I like some variety in my chocolate, it wouldn't be too much of a sacrifice for me to live on just them and Guylian seashells for the rest of my life. I think these would appeal to many people even those who prefer a darker chocolate, because they are so small you can get a quick chocolate kick without a sickly taste if you stick to just one or two. I also think they would be the perfect thing to decorate a cake with as they're so tiny. You could also use them to make a rich chocolate sauce if you stick a few in the microwave for a few minutes. Drizzle this over even cheap vanilla ice cream and it turns a boring pudding into a fancier one. I wouldn't tend to do this with the larger Lindor truffles, but using these eggs, or broken up pieces of a Lindor bar works perfectly. Lindt is a quality chocolate, and these Mini Eggs are a perfect example of why sometimes it's worth paying a little extra. They eggs were all identical in size and shape. None were discoloured. None were missing the filling. Each had the distinct, creamy Lindt taste. More importantly, there were no empty wrappers in the bag. I know they sell things by weight not by quantity, but I still feel cheated every time a multipack throws up the odd wrapper full of nothing but air. Needless to say, my bag did not last very long at all, I think aided by the fact that they were so small, as I grabbed one every time I passed my fridge (which, in a studio apartment, is quite often), but it was my mother's money very well spent. These are a seasonal product so look out for them in the shops next Easter (and by that, I mean the day after Valentine's day). Often on offer, these can cost from 2-for-£1 up to about £1.50 per bag, so it pays to shop around. Cheaper versions are available (Tesco, for example, now do a version of the normal sized Lindor truffle) but in my mind nothing beats the original, and they're worth the extra few pennies.
I had a largely chocolate free Easter this year, a conscious decision to avoid chocolate between now and the summer holidays and the only exception to this was a bag of Lindt Lindor Mini Eggs. Lindt do make lovely Swiss milk chocolate and it is slightky more expensive than the standard Cadbury or Galaxy chocolate that most people buy. Each of the eggs is wrapped in red foil with some white writing on it. The chocolate gives off a lovely rich aroma and each egg has a nice crunch to the outer shell as you bite into it. The chocolate is very smooth and has a mellow flavour to it, there is a nice creamy feel in your mouth as the chocolate coats the roof of my mouth and tongue and there is a lovely rich after taste to it. Being milk chocolate it is very sweet and also very tasty. Thereis a hint of cocoa to it but you can also taste the cream in it. I find the eggs to be quite filling and personally I like them to have been in the fridge for a while before I eat the as this makes the chocolate a little firmer. These were my only treat at Easter but then I always think that small amounts of a quality product taken inmoderation is far better than eating lots of an inferior product and there is nothing inferior about Lindt chocolate.
I got a bag of these mini Lindor eggs in Londis last week because they were selling them for 2 bags for £1 and had loads, I brought a fivers worth in the finish because they are so yummy and will last me until way after Easter. The mini eggs are the same size as the mini Cream Eggs and they come wrapped in posh red foil that has all the stuff printed on in black and gold. They are so yummy that I can't stop eating them, they are milk chocolate but because they are made by Lindt the chocolate is much smoother than even Galaxy and that is my favourite smooth chocolate usually. The egg shell is thick chocolate and the inside is a very smooth centre that is a bit like melted chocolate but very creamy at the same time. I just put a full one in my mouth and suck it until the egg collapses but my mum bites loads of the chocolate off hers and then licks the centre. It is my favourite chocolate and because I have got a draw full of these cheap mini eggs I don't have to keep buying the proper size Lindor eggs like my friends that cost 60p.
'Lindt' is my favourite chocolate, but almost the most luxurious and a little more expensive to buy, so it's only on the odd occasion that I get to taste the delights of 'Lindt', and it's for that reason that I do love Easter! They know exactly what to get me, and it's always the best treat come Easter Sunday - a nice little bag of 'Lindt Lindor Mini Eggs'; delicious! I love how each egg is individually wrapped in the most beautiful red foil with delicate snow flakes and the well known 'Lindt' logo. They just give out this sense of luxury and sense that they are the best of the rest. As I slowly peel back the foil, careful not to indent the beautifully crafted egg below the surface I get a small whiff of that amazing hand crafted Swiss chocolate. Then I pop the egg into my mouth-watering mouth and taste the delights of the world renowned chocolate. It's so soft and smooth, the chocolate is so delicate but oozes with taste. The chocolate is just the right constancy and not too hard or soft, not too sweet or bitter and it's these reasons that I love it so much. I received my 'Mini Eggs' along with a larger 'Lindt' egg this Easter and it was absolutely gorgeous! When buying these you know you are buying quality and at an RRP for £4.99 for the Easter Egg set it isn't going to break and bank, and will make you feel in heaven. I'm sure the calorie count on these are calorific! But as a treat it's not something I'm going to worry about. They are too good to miss out on, and if you can still get one at your local supermarket, before they sell out and stop being stocked as they are a seasonal product, grab one quick! And enjoy when you settle down to eat it!
