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.
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.
