Lindt is a regular feature here on Chocablog, but I’d never clapped eyes on such a large box of them before – 400g and just in time for Christmas. Surely this was the ideal time to shout myself a silver box and scoff the lot?
Not according to my daughter who spotted them lying next to my laptop – in fact the box is larger than my laptop – and insisted that I share. Rats!
Inside, Lindt have inserted eight popular fillings including white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, 60% chocolate (in the black wrapper), hazelnut (milk), raspberry (dark), coffee (dark) and orange (milk). All have been tried many times before by this writer and all are superb. Most afternoon tea and coffee drinkers, dinner party guests or fed-up Silly Season Bah Humbuggers are going to find something they like in here and at $26 per box it is both affordable and a better alternative to a dodgy Christmas compilation CD in my opinion.
However there are some rogue Lindt Lindor balls out there in the wild who seem to only appear intermittently that didn’t make it into this mammoth, magnificent box – deliciously devious flavours such as peanut butter, peppermint, cinnamon and stracciatella (white chocolate and cookie crumbs) to name only the few I’m aware of.
Will Lindt ever put out a box or specialty gift selection that includes all Lindor flavours? And if not, why not?
