Once more unto the Lindt dear friends – only this time I’m straying from my usual path and trying out a milk chocolate bar. When I first spotted this one, I was reminded of the Petits Desserts series – a milk chocolate exterior concealing a creamy filling – but without the addition of lemon meringue, creme brulee or other ‘puddingy’ extras.
It will come as no surprise to you to learn that the chocolate is indeed the same as that used in the Petits Desserts range – a smooth, creamy, slightly sweet milk chocolate with a great texture and flavour. The important thing here is the filling.
As you can see, it does exactly what it says on the wrapper. The chocolate conceals a light, almost fluffy cream filling which melts before the chocolate and floods the mouth with a milky, creamy flavour which sets you up nicely for the chocolate. If you ever ate those chewy milk bottle sweets as a child, then the taste of the filling will probably put you in mind of that – concentrated creamy milkiness.
As I have come to expect with Lindt bars, the choice of flavours is a good one – they are well matched and offer a new twist on plain old milk chocolate (pun intended). The milkiness of it means that kids seem to go mad for it as well – so be advised to keep it safe!
Of course, a filled bar takes a lot less time to hoover up than a slab of solid chocolate, so I would advise any potential UK tasters to take advantage of Sainsbury’s “2 for £1″ offer while it’s on.
