Lindt Petit Desserts Citron Meringue

At last I have managed to track another of the elusive bars in Lindt’s Petits Desserts series. These bars seem to be like rare jewels – I have located one in Holland, one in Belgium, and now this one in London. If you’ve read the reviews of the Crème Brûlée, Tiramisu and Dark Truffe Cake, you’ll know that I was more than a little excited when I came across this bar. I wasn’t quite dancing with excitement, but it was close!

So, Lemon Meringue Pie wrapped in milk chocolate – can they pull it off? Silly question, really.

The chcolate is (of course) that wonderfully smooth Lindt milk chocolate we know and love, but it’s the filling in these bars that makes it all worthwhile. In this case, a wonderfully tart lemon cream filling with tiny little fragments of biscuit and meringue floating around in it. Once again, the Lindt chocolate wizards have managed to create a creamy filling which accurately recreates a classic dessert in a Lindt style. The creamy filling has just the right amount of lemony sharpness. and once again they have managed to find a way of ensuring that every mouthful contains an evenly distributed amount of meringue and biscuit.

Eating a square of this is a delight to the tastebuds – just like popping a square of chocolate in with a sliver of Lemon Meringue Pie.

Of course, as it was bought in the UK and not Europe it was horribly expensive, but luxury comes at a premium, and this bar sits well with the rest of the Petits Desserts range. Still not my overall favourite of the four I have tried (that honour still goes to the Crème Brûlée bar) but this is a great example of Lindt’s creativity and ability to create a fantastic eating experience. Highly recommended.

    I have a Petit Dessert Creme Brulee in the fridge at this moment, it was meant to be a gift for a friend, but you’ve just forced me to redirect it to my own stomach.

    If you go to a Whittard store they have a large range of Lindt products- I’ve seen all four of the petits dessert basr you’ve mentioned on one shelf there before!

    For em the Meringue just beats the Creme brulee but I think that’s my citrus loving side coming through!
