Lindt Passion Orange & Pistachio

Seeing something new from Lindt on my supermarket shelves isn’t really a cause for excitement, but it does make me curious enough to pick up said product for at least a quick onceover. And that was definitely the case with …

Cooking Chocolate Face-Off

Some months ago, as I was wondering the aisles of my local Foodland, I found Nestlé Plaistowe 70% cooking chocolate. I was curious, but decided to come back to it some other time. Then, more recently, I found alongside it, Lindt …

Lindt Variations Cacao

I haven’t picked up a Lindt box in a long time, but this one looked more interesting than most because it appeared to have a theme.

Lindt Excellence Black Currant and Roasted Almond

My latest from the good people of Lindt was a package including their two newest bars, Black Currant and Roasted Almond. The look and format is the usual Lindt Excellence style; both are dark chocolates, though the Almond comes in …

Dark Chocolate Face-Off: Wawel 90% vs Lindt 85%

Two high cocoa dark chocolate bars.

Lindt Carrés

I can’t recall ever having reviewed a box of Lindt chocolates before, which is remarkable considering the amount of their products we’ve collectively muched our way through here at Chocablog. Recently, I was in an airport somewhere in Europe (it may …

Lindt Petits Desserts Sorbetto

During my last shopping trip, it was hard not to notice Lindt’s new Petits Desserts Sorbetto chocolates on the shelf because of the really unique packaging they’ve been given – an oversized cardboard ice cream cone that declares in no …

Lindt Essence Assorted Selection

I’ve been itching to try these since seeing them appear on our Supermarket shelves some time ago – a new (?) Lindt offering! Or at least – one I’d not come across before. The small bag contains filled chocolates; to quote …

Lindt Grandeur 34% Hazelnuts

I don’t believe this is an entirely new Lindt product, but as I don’t remember seeing it before and as it features one of my favorite chocolate combinations, hazelnut, it had to come along home with me. Being milk chocolate, …

Lindt Fioretto

I hope I haven’t taken long enough getting to this bag that the “New” sticker is wholly meaningless; I promise they were new (to the U.S., that is) when I bought them. And the best before date is still for …

Lindt Mini Eggs

Easter is nearly upon us, and the first item to catch my eye on the shelves of my local Tesco was this little packet of mini eggs from Lindt. Once again, I fear I may have been led by pretty …

Lindt Lindor Dark Peppermint

Stockings I’ve always thought add to the fanciful, fun feel of Christmas. Sure, tearing and hacking away at wrapping paper has its charms, but a stocking filled with candy and a trinket or so — that’s festive. Hence, when my …

Ginger Chocolate Face-Off: Round 2

Back in 2007, Simon compared two ginger bars in a head to head review. Now we have two more ginger bars and it’s time for Round 2… You know you’re going to have a fantastic day when you spot two new …

Lindt Classic Raisin & Nuts

A box with chocolate inside is a wonderful thing to find at your door when you get up in the morning, even if it’s already expected. In my excitement, I had to get the photo shoot done and try some …

Lindt Edelbitter Sauerkirsch-Chili

Oh woe is me! I weakened. I finally broke open this pack that I’ve been saving since late last year when we brought it back from the far side of the world. One of the few remaining chocolates left that we …

Lindt Lindola

A few weeks ago, we had an intelligent, thoughtful and excited reader by the name of Tam get in touch: Hi Guys! I’m so confident of Lindt’s ‘Lindola’ collection, (found in Aussie Woolworths thus far) I’ll buy a box for our ‘local …

Lindt Milk Chocolate Egg With Gold Bunny and Carrots

I saw this pack in the supermarket the other day, and though it terribly kitsch. In the twue spiwit of kitsch, this weview now has to be pwesented with a speech impediment, a combination of Bugs Bunny and I’m feeling it …

The Luckiest Bloke In Melbourne?

An Interview with Thomas Schnetzler, Lindt’s Maître Chocolatier for Australia Swiss-born and raised Thomas Schnetzler chose a patisserie and confectionery apprenticeship and after completing his mandatory Swiss army service a month shy of his twentieth birthday, found himself in Melbourne. …

Lindt Excellence Zimt & Koriander

Remember my poor little sister? The one stuck in Germany without Coconut Rough? She came through with her side of a bargain. It seems that in Germany, and no doubt through other parts of Europe as well, Lindt release seasonal …

Lindt ‘Chocolat Provence’ Wild Berries and Rosemary

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 …

Lindt Excellence 99% Noir Absolu

I went through the chocolate stash, and put a challenge to the family today: “Here’s your choice, now what will we pick to taste today?” Oldest son has been nagging for months to try the Lindt 99% that we found …

Lindt Pralinés Noirs

There’s only one thing better I like seeing than chocolates on special and in large quantities, like this: …is when I see this, something entirely new from Lindt. In this case it is a gorgeous looking box of Pralinés Noirs …

Lindt Lindor Ball Selection

Lindt is a regular feature here on Chocablog, but I’d never clapped eyes on such a large box of them before – 400g and just in time for Christmas. Surely this was the ideal time to shout myself a …

Lindt Hot Papaya

Thanks to my mates Ashleigh and Marie – also new chocablog contributors – for bringing this little 150g treasure back to me after their overseas odyssey, the wonderful Lindt Hot Papaya. It is another of those tantalizing examples of what Lindt …

Lindt Williams

No, that’s not the name of my Fantasy Boyfriend. Being barely able to master my mother tongue – English – I’ll come out and confess to you that I have no idea what Aus Fruchtigen Williams-Christ-Birnen actually means (“From …

Lindt Edelbitter Mousse Fig & Caramel

On our recent trip to Europe (oh, how I like the sound of that, as if we do this sort of thing every few months, darlinks, rather than every 20 years) we scoured the supermarket shelves looking for a wee …

Lindt Creation Fig & Caramel

Another (continental) member from the same stable as the Cherry & Chilli bar, and the selection that Kath reviewed a while back, this particular bar is made from the same 70% dark chocolate and contains the same percentage (28%) of …

Lindt Lindor Peanut Butter Balls

Matt-tastic from Lindt never lets me down. He popped into Choco-Locketts the other day to present me with two clear boxes of Lindt Lindor Balls. The first box, was filled with some bronzed little chaps I’ve heard about …

Lindt Wafer

There I was, feet firmly planted in the Dark Side, feeling happy with my choice, secure with my tastes, minding my own business. Then all of a sudden my beady eyes fixated on the most sign most sought after …

Lindt Excellence – A Touch Of Sea Salt

This bar is the usual 47% dark blend that Lindt use for the range, but it also contains tiny crystals of sea salt. 3% to be precise. Now you may not consider 3% to be a great deal of salt, but …

Lindt Hot Chocolate Flakes

Dear, sweet, darling Matthew Thorpe, he of the South Australian Lindt distribution (and generous sharing) and radio fame, gave me a couple of tins of Lindt’s new hot chocolate flakes to try. They’re available at a few selected supermarkets …

Lindt Excellence Poire Intense

After my recent spate of ‘oddball’ reviews I thought I’d pop in something a little more ‘normal’ – a Lindt bar I bought in Spain a little while ago. Another member of the ‘Intense’ range, I hadn’t seen this in the …

Lindt Swiss Tradition Dark Collection

Regular readers of Chocablog will already know that I harbor quite the cocoa-crush on South Australian Lindt Guru, Matt Thorpe. He’s tall, cute and smart but most importantly he comes bearing Lindt products for my delight, delectation and in …

Lindt Petits Desserts

For the first time in my life, I woke up with a chocolate hangover. That’s right – no alcohol, stupid dancing, yelling or shouting the entire pub a round of drinks was involved – just this box of Lindt …

Lindt Creation 70% Pure Chocolate & Caramel

For the first time in our thirteen year marriage, my darling husband Love Chunks actually got up from watching a live broadcast game of Australian Rules Football featuring his team the Adelaide Crows to tell me that the chocolate I’d …

Australian Lindt Selection

The other day I appeared on the Amanda Blair afternoon show on radio 5AA Adelaide and had the added pleasure of meeting the lovely lad from Lindt, Matthew Thorpe. Perhaps I need to publicly apologise to him, because when he …

Lindt Lime and Green Pepper Mousse

I found this in an Austrian service station while driving from Brno in the Czech Republic to Ljubljana in Slovenia. No, really. Physically, this bar falls into the same category and the Cherry/Chilli bar I reviewed some time ago. What you …

Lindt ‘Chocolat Provence’ Orange & Thyme Fantasy

It wouldn’t be Europe if I couldn’t find another ‘previously unknown’ Lindt bar or two. This is one of a brace I bagged in Vienna, and as you can see from the packaging, Lindt have decided to go all rustic …

Lindt Competition Winner

Well our Lindt Competition is finally over! We had loads of entries, but nobody quite guessed the exact number of balls in the photo – 1,191. The lucky winner who was closest was Tina Carr of Morcambe. Congratulations, Tina. Your chocolate …

Lindt Competition Reminder

Just a quick reminder, you’ve only got until Monday if you want to enter our Easter Lindt competition. To enter, head on over to the competition page, count how many balls in the picture and follow the instructions carefully. The competition will …

Lindt Calvados

Further proof of two things: Lindt are constantly adding to their range of flavours European consumers have access to a much wider (and consequently more interesting) range of flavours than we are here in the UK. One cannot help but wonder if Lindt …

Lindt Swiss Classic Double Milk

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 …

Lindt Excellence 70% Squares

Venturing over to the (pause for effect) *Dark Side* can be a little bit scary. When you see blocks and bars stating that they have a minimum cocoa content of 50%, 60%, 70% and 85% it can seem a …

ChocoBLAG: Lindt Lindor Giveaway!

Update: This competition is now closed. Here’s a little story to bring a little drool to the mouth of any chocaholic. You may not know this, but if you’re an event organiser, it’s often quite easy to get freebies from companies who …

Lindt Pistache

Purchased at the same time as the Raspberry Bar (and refrigerated for safekeeping), this was one I was definitely looking forward to sampling, as I do rather enjoy the old pistachio nuts. Lindt’s Pistachio Bar is made with milk chocolate like …

Lindt Cherry

Milk chocolate with liquid cherry filled chunks.

Lindt Petits Desserts Dark Orange

Since I first posted a review of a Petits Desserts bar, both Dom and I have been wowed by the authenticity and the quality of what is obviously a premium product, so discovering another, untried Petits Desserts bar is something …

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 …

Lindt Lindor 60% Cocoa Balls

Before talking about these deliciously divine Lindor balls, I need to apologise to you all, dear, sweet, intelligent and discerning Chocoblog readers. Normally these articles are accompanied by close up photographs of the chocolate itself, unwrapped and sometimes half-eaten, …

Lindt: The Precious Collection

“And God said, ‘Let there be Lindt’; And there was Lindt. And God saw that the Lindt was good.” (And on the 7th day, God just stayed in bed and stuffed his face with chocolate.) It’s been some time since I’ve been as excited …

Lindt Swiss Classic Double Milk

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 …

Lindt Creation 70% Chilli

Once again, I have found another Lindt bar to sample, and this one is perhaps the most unusual of their bars I have seen on general sale in the UK. Chilli and chocolate in itself is nothing too left field, …

Lindt Petits Desserts Crème Brûlée

I came across this little beauty while browsing for Belgian choccy in Sainsbury’s a while back. Intrigued by the concept and in the interests of all Chocablog readers, I took a leap of faith and bagged a bar. The packaging certainly …
