Day 379 – Dark passion

There was a full spinning rack at the corner of a supermarket aisle dedicated to Lindt chocolate. I excitedly spun it around and around catching glimpses of my favourite ones. I stopped when I saw this new one I hadn’t come across before – Passionfruit Intense dark. I love the tartness of passionfruit and started to imagine and salivate how well it would go with the bitter darkness. And so it was quickly added to the basket.

Finally home I decided to break into it and the signature Lindt large squares were a perfect portion. The Passionfruit flavour was strong and slivers of almond added texture to the smooth chocolate. What a great combination! This bar has moved up high on my list. Lindt you’ve done it again.

Day 3 – Feelin’ hot hot hot

Today’s chocolate is presented to you by Lindt, the fine Swiss chocolatier that has been producing chocolate since 1845. With such experience they can proudly boast a number of premium products and someone thought quality should be made accessible to the masses, as they can be found in your local convenience store.

This little beauty was not found locally, and given my usual preference for their 70% I thought I’d give this one a whirl – Lindt Excellence Chilli (Dark). Ironically, it only states a minimum of 49% cocoa solids, which doesn’t sound very dark to me, hmm…

As with all their 80g bars, the chocolate comes in a fine slab in convenient 1.5″ squared pieces. This one is surprisingly sweet (or not so surprising given the low cocoa mass!) and the chilli slowly ebbs through the flavour, allowing you to finish off with a nicely warmed and spiced palate.

This was a little too sweet for my liking, but I did enjoy the little kick the chilli adds to it, balancing it out. Guess that was the plan.
