Lindt Dark Chocolate is Swiss dark chocolate that's cheap in price only. Don't let the low cost fool you.
It's just as tasty as that more famous Swiss milk chocolate.
Chocolate, sugar, cocoa powder and cocoa butter are skillfully blended by the chocolatier into a fine piece of dark chocolate candy.
How do they make such a big dark chocolate bar (3.5oz) for so little?
I don't know. I do know that it tastes great.
I tried the 70% and 85% cocoa bar.
You get a big chocolate taste without the big price tag.
This is Swiss dark chocolate candy you can afford to enjoy.
I purchased my Lindt Swiss dark chocolate bars and returned to the privacy of my own home.
Clutching a solid dark chocolate candy bar in each hand, I was at a crossroads.
Start with the 70% chocolate bar or jump straight to the 85%?
I chose 70%. Didn't want to reach chocolate satiation prematurely, I had all afternoon.
I grabbed hold of the big bar and slowly peeled back the silver foil. My eyes traveled the length of the bar, taking in it's rich, very dark brown color.
Suddenly, the intoxicating chocolate aroma overwhelmed me. I couldn't wait any longer.
I snapped off a piece and popped it into my mouth. Just let it sit there and melt. Resisted the urge to chew it. I wanted to savor that delicious Swiss chocolate flavor.
You will too, when you enjoy your own 70% cocoa dark chocolate bar. No bitter taste, just a delicious flavor that will linger on your tongue long after the candy has melted away.
Good isn't it? Need another piece? Go ahead...I won't tell.
Or are you ready for a more intense experience?
Well then, try this...
If you want an extreme dark chocolate taste, this is the candy for you.
Dark chocolate candy with this level of cocoa is for experienced chocoholics only!
The taste is intense, a very strong cocoa taste. Much stronger than the 70%, definitely for extreme chocolate lovers only.
Everybody else shouldn't even think about it!
Honestly, it would probably gag most chocolate lovers. It's bitter. You better work up to it or forget it.
But it's goood. So get busy!
Do you have trouble controlling portions when it comes to chocolate?
Dark Lindt diamonds can help. They're individually wrapped, mini versions of the delicious 70% cocoa bar described above.
The challenge is to eat only 1 ounce of dark chocolate per day. Is that even possible?
Well, that's what's considered to be a healthy intake by the experts.
Use these handy little dark chocolate squares to limit temptation.
Instead of buying a big candy bar which you may feel obligated (who wouldn't?) to finish...
Spread them around so you don't eat them all at once.
Be sure to make every bite count! Break each Lindt dark thin square into several pieces. Let each piece melt in your mouth. Don't rush it, enjoy it.
You can eat about 4 and stay within the ounce a day allowance.
Worried about the calories (who isn't?) and those pesky carbs?
Want to know which of the two solid dark chocolate bars contains the least?
The 85% cocoa extra dark bar does. The nutrition facts state that per serving it has (compared to the 70% bar)...
That makes the 85% cocoa the healthiest of the two Swiss dark chocolate bars reviewed.
