Lately, I’ve been amazed at the rate it which Lindt have been able to churn out new and interesting products. Their range seems to be growing on a daily basis. Even my little local corner shop has a whole shelf full of Lindt now. (Although I suspect that’s primarily aimed at me because I just keep buying the stuff). While I’ve pretty much universally liked all the new additions to the range, I am a little concerned that the chocolatiers at Lindt are spreading themselves a little thin.
So what’s this “Swiss Classic” then? Well, it’s an upmarket version of Kinder Chocolate, that’s what. Sweet milk chocolate with a creamy white chocolate centre.
Now, I really like Kinder. It’s very sweet, but it’s just so creamy and moreish. The Lindt bar shares that sweetness, but it just seems to be missing a certain something. The filling isn’t quite as soft and creamy as it could be and it’s just a little sweeter than it need be.
I don’t have any Kinder chocolate to hand, so I couldn’t say if this is actually sweeter, but it seems like it to me. On the other hand, that could just be down to the fact that this is a much bigger bar. With the tiny Kinder bars, you don’t get much, so you’re forced to eat it more slowly.
Having said all that, I do like this bar. It’s just too sweet for me to scoff down in one sitting like my instinct tells me I should.
And that annoys me somewhat.
