I’m not much of a white chocolate fan (nor dark chocolate for that matter) – it’s normally milk chocolate or no chocolate for me. However, I spotted this at the supermarket the other day and was sucked in by the claim that it “tastes like cookies and cream”. I do love all things cookies and cream so I bought a box.
The box is a nice baby blue colour and the balls themselves are also wrapped in baby blue… but that is where the niceness ends.
I was so excited to try them, thinking I might have found a new chocolate that tops my list. So much anticipation… it’s almost like opening a present! Look what I found…
My first thought was HUH?? Where are the cookies?? Ohhhh, you mean those black flecks are the cookies. You want to know the worst bit? Those black flecks are not even cookie crumbs, they are cocoa pieces! The balls could have redeemed themselves if they tasted good, but the cocoa pieces are a bit like pips where they hang around in your mouth and you have to spit them out.
I feel totally ripped off. How can Lindt put their name to something so disappointingly mediocre? And how can they falsely claim that they taste like cookies and cream? I don’t want to waste my calories eating them so it looks like I will have to use them in baking or something (or leave them out when people come over!).
