Lindt Raspberry

Lindt Raspberry

Raspberry and chocolate is still something of a rare combination here in the UK, so I was rather pleased to have found this bar on sale in a branch of Whittards in London. As regular Chocablog readers will know, I rarely have anything bad to say about Lindt’s products, so the prospect of tasting their milk chocolate and raspberry bar had me rubbing my hands together and smiling to myself as I made my way home.

As you can see, this bar has a liquid filling, which marks it out as a first among the huge range of Lindt bars I have sampled.

Lindt Raspberry

If you read my review of the Cote d’Or Dark Raspberry bar, you’ll already know that I rate the pairing of flavours quite highly. Lindt’s choice of liquid filling means that the raspberry flavour hits your mouth a fraction before the chocolate starts to melt, which works really well. It isn’t overly sweet, but definitely sweeter than the Dark Raspberry bar, so it might have a wider appeal than the bittersweet 70% cocoa variant. Personally, I prefer the combination of dark chocolate and raspberry, but that’s just my taste buds for you.

I’m not sure if this is a new addition to the Lindt range. The packaging is certainly unlike any previous Lindt bars I have seen, so I can only hope that this is one of a range and not a limited edition bar that will soon disappear from the shops.

  1. There’s a Lindt bar exactly like this here in the US and it’s been around for years. So I don’t think it’ll disappear anytime soon. If you find another, try putting this bar in the fridge for a day or so. It’s great ’cause the cold makes the raspberry filling crystalize a little, so you get a nice texture when you eat it. :)

    If you’re ever passing through Marylebone, stop by the sweet shop in the station. They seem to have a *full* range of Lindt bars (including all the Petits Desserts). I picked up the cherry version of this.

    I remember my sister was scoffing this bar in the early 70′s or late 60′s even siknce when I developed a taste for it. It has been difficult to get hold of until recent years when Whittards (pre-collapse and management buyout) started stocking a range of Lindt bars and have continued to do so to this day. They do have advantageous pricing for purchase of three bars at one time at these shops. Prior to that it was only stocked in specialist confectionery/chocolate shops.

    A minor criticism I have is that Lindt could perforate the bar a little deeper because the bar can split on the diagonal which causes the very sticky liquid to pour out. You also get a free piece of quality cardboard as a protector with every bar!

    There is also a bar of Polish chocolate with a raspberry filling although more like a jelly but with a very good taste now available. It is far cheaper than this bar but is available in British supermarkets such as Morrisons. I’ll make a note of its name and post back.

  5. I tried Raspberry Lindt Dark Chocolates today and can’t stop eating them. They are absolutely delicious! They were on sale at the pharmacy so I decided to try them.
    I am totally addicted to them now. Helen Wolfe
