Favourite Dark Chocolate
on 6 November 2012
I don't write reviews but having seen the only other review I felt it necessary to balance it.
And balance is the key word. Lindt mention it enough in their description. Chocolate with 85% cocoa can be bitter but somehow or other Lindt have managed to get this just right.
The other key factor with chocolate is how it melts in the mouth. I haven't checked all the ingredients of the other dark chocolates that I've tried but I suspect that the fat quality in the Lindt is slightly lower. It is not so cloying to detract from the flavour of the chocolate. Some of the other quality dark chocolate that I've tried just feel horrible in your mouth.
I've been eating this chocolate for years now and limit myself to 2 squares a day (after all, all chocolate is full of saturated fat!).
This pack of 5 bars is excellent value and I wish I had found it sooner as I'm paying a lot more for it from a major supermarket. 5 bars will be enough to convert you. Buy it, eat 2 squares a day, and after you've finished them all try some different choc. I sure you'll agree with me and stick to the Lindt.
p.s. Good for your arteries, originally recommended by a cardiologist.
