I just had to do a grocery run and as you do, you whip around the store picking up the basics – veg, dairy, pasta, cans… and then when it comes to the confectionary and snacks section, you start slowly meandering through the aisles. Or maybe it’s just me, I admit I have a love affair with supermarkets.
So I was taking my sweet time checking out the chocolate section trying to find something for today’s post, then BAM this caught my eye.
Mövenpick of Switzerland – Swiss Chocolate White Lemon. How grand does that sound? I particularly like their description:
WHITE LEMON – FOR CREATIVE MINDS ONLY
Because creative minds derive pleasure from their own ideas and enjoy developing new creations. Be tempted by a really special Mövenpick creation: enjoy WHITE LEMON, the fascinating combination of white Swiss chocolate and refreshing pieces of lemon, rounded off with a subtle hint of pepper.
Though I’m not one to go for white chocolate as you may have already figured (they’re too sweet!) my mum prefers it so thought this would be a lovely ‘treat‘ for her and at the same time be a new subject to sample.
And what a treat it was for me too! The fine bar comes wrapped in gold foil (I always like when they do this) and I accidentally broke off 4 sections to try, hey they were smaller than I expected! Either way, it was absolutely divine! Sweet, zesty lemon and lime and the hint of cracked pepper brought out the flavours beautifully. It was incredibly creamy and it was like having the smoothest and lightest cheesecake melt in my mouth. I understand why they suggest small servings.. but it didn’t stop me having a few more pieces before passing it to my mum.
Less than 15mins later, I went back and had a few more pieces.. just two. Definitely recommend having it chilled, but heed the warning, being white chocolate it is super sweet, so stick to the sections.
