The sister bar to the orange and thyme bar I reviewed last year, this 30% cocoa milk chocolate bar packs a huge punch of rosemary flavour as soon as it starts to melt. The herb flavour dominates for the majority of the time, with the citrus tang of the berries (and a good amount of their seeds) finish off with a good mouth-cleansing tartness. It is a curious mix of flavours, but as I for one adore the taste of rosemary I was very happy to have found this.
The cocoa flavours are there as well – very soft, creamy milk chocolate with a little extra sweetness from the berries. When I tasted this I had a couple of squares, and the sweet richness of the chocolate meant I wouldn’t have wanted to eat much more in one sitting.
This is one of the most enduring Chocablog requests – why don’t Lindt sell this stuff in the UK? Granted, this bar is a little left of centre, but I for one have tried so many Lindt bars that could only be bought in Europe. It’s a shame not to have so much choice. There again, you’d have to open a dedicated Lindt store (in itself, not a bad idea).
