About a week ago I received an e-mail from Lindt asking if I would like to receive a special package from them. Umm…. YEAH! What kind of a silly question is that? LOL! Of course! I ♥ Lindt chocolates. I’m still heartbroken that the Lindt store at our mall disappeared. Thankfully Lindt products are more readily available in local grocery stores so I can still pick up some Lindt truffles (my favorite).
I received from Lindt two of their Classic Recipe chocolate bars. They are new from Lindt. The flavor is Strawberries & Cream.
When I think of summer foods I always think of picking berries, like strawberries. My great-grandfather had strawberries. I used to go over to his place pretty much every day and pick the strawberries from the bush and eat them right there. As I write this I have about 2+ pounds of strawberries in my fridge that I picked up yesterday at the farm.
I couldn’t wait to unwrap and try out the Lindt Classic Recipe Strawberries & Cream bar.
The moment I tore into the foil you could smell the strawberries. The fresh scent hits you right in the face. It’s as if someone just put a bowl of fresh strawberries in front of you.
I’m not a fan of white chocolate. Sometimes it’s good. Other time I find it a tad bit too creamy. This was actually pretty good. As I ate it you could really tell that it was strawberries and cream.
I experimented with my husband. I didn’t tell him what chocolate I wanted him to taste because I wanted him to tell me what he thought the flavor was. I had him close his eyes and I gave him a piece of the Lindt Classic Recipe Strawberries & Cream. Before the chocolate even made it into his mouth he said “strawberries“. I asked him why he thought that and he said he could easily smell it was strawberries.
After enjoying the piece for a few moments he said again “strawberries“. I asked him if the flavor was just strawberries, or strawberries and something else. He replied “strawberries and cream” and “strawberries and white chocolate“.
Even without knowing what he was eating my husband was able to taste exactly what he was eating – strawberries and cream. Lindt truly captured the taste in this chocolate bar.
Check out the bits of strawberries too. I took the photo of the back of the chocolate because it showed the strawberry bites more so than the other side did.
If you love strawberries, strawberries and cream or chocolates from Lindt you are going to love their new Lindt Classic Recipe Strawberries & Cream.
Look for these delicious, and aromatic chocolate bars at a Lindt store near you. You can also purchase them online at www.LindtUSA.com.
