Festive Lindt Characters

I have yet to find a simple milk chocolate that I prefer to Lindt, I don't know what it is about it, everything I suppose, the texture is amazingly creamy but not sickly, it's sweet but doesn't cause a horrible burning feeling of too much sugar, the cocoa notes are there but not overpoweringly dark and it has a slight note of something that for so long I just didn't know what it was...well I figured it out now, malt!! It has a slight malt flavour that comes through just at the end along with a rich creamy milky flavour. The apperance of it is of a light brown milky colour with a good shine that suggests it contains a large amount of cream/milk and has been tempered well. The chocolate that I had was of the Festive Character variety but you can also buy it in the variety of just a normal bar, or since it is getting close to Easter in the form of their famous Lindt bunnies all over!

Taste - 10/10 - Yet to find a milk chocolate that I prefer...hope that on my tasting adventures I will find some to rival it!
Texture - 9/10 - Melts perfectly on the tongue, ultra creamy, not gritty in the slightest.
Apperance - 9/10 - Light milky colour and comes in cute seasonal shapes!
Price - 9/10 - I got my figurines in the sale but for a 100g bar its £1.99 at most shops, which is pretty good!
Overall - 9/10 - I couldn't really fault Lindt chocolate on much to be honest, but it's quite early in my blogging days to give anything a 10/10 yet and I want to experience different chocolates before giving that good old 10 out too soon!

  1. I have never been a huge fan of Lindt chocolate (but I will eat it if its lieing around) ;o)

    Of the cheaper stuff I prefer Cadburys and galaxy.
