The last time I looked at anything from Lindt, it was the Lindor Stracciatella balls, which are very similar to this, so I’m going to keep this review quite brief.
Like the ultra-sweet, but quite more-ish Stracciatella, these Lindt Lindor Coconut balls have a sweet, creamy white centre. The coconut variety, however are enrobed in a slightly less sweet 31% milk chocolate, which I have to say is quite a welcome relief from the full on sugar rush of Stracciatella.
The moment you unwrap one, you can smell coconut, and that’s the overwhelming flavour as soon as they hit your mouth. Even before the milk chocolate has melted, the coconut takes over. So it’s fair to say if you’re not a big fan of coconut, you’re not going to like these.
Inside the thin milk chocolate shell, the filling is very smooth, very sweet, and very coconutty. In fact, the coconut flavour was a little too much for me, and ended up taking over entirely. I found the flavour much stronger and much sweeter than the likes of a Bounty Bar – something I’m quite fond of. T
This, however was just a bit too sweet for me, and I couldn’t manage more than a couple before feeling I’d had enough.
If you have a very sweet tooth, and you love that Bounty flavour, but want something a little smoother, then you might like these, but I can’t say I’m a fan.
