LINDT LINDOR STRAWBERRY & CREME
The Lindt Lindor Strawberry & Crème is an all-around beautiful creation, from the inside out. The wrapper is sophisticated, and yet playful with the pink tonality of the foil. Once unfolded, I am in awe, a true surprise; white Lindor chocolate awaits. Extra points Lindt, you got me, okay, I will admit, yes, you finally did a good number on me, he he he! The perfectly rounded ball is full of the very prominent strawberry flavour that the title keeps implying about. Lindt definitely does not let you forget that there is “fruit” in this chocolate, well, it might really only be a tincture in strawberry flavour but who’s counting! To be continued….Melt action is absolutely superb, and I am craving more. Smooth white chocolate with an irresistibly fruity aftertaste. Perfect balance in sweetener. Oh YES, I would repurchase.

Wow, this is truly a variation box galore. If you are indecisive in the so-many options that life has to offer, than this is the chocolate box for you. There is no right or wrong, no perfection, or fault in picking one over the other, just pure goodness. Every single piece of chocolate in the Waterbridge Masterpiece box is beautiful, from the exterior appearance and most of all, the interior (taste). All of the generously sized bon bons have a different filling in the middle. I feel spoiled. Not one of the chocolates disappoint. I would have appreciated if the sweetener was toned down by at least 30%, and the incorporation of cacao butter was thrown in by the pounds however, from under a $10.00 standpoint, this box is hard to beat. Beautiful to look at, with a tasty wonder. YES, I would repurchase.

Despite the fact that the name of these chocolates has always intrigued me, I have never had the desire to reach for this brand when deciding what to purchase for my next review. I finally said yes with their Valentine’s Edition and purchased a box. Well the chocolates are not really catered especially for Valentine’s Day since they did not alter anything from what I have researched, but we will just go along with it. Merci claims that these are Valentine’s Day chocolates, I would differ otherwise, oh well, let’s make peace and call it a day! Each chocolate stick mini bar has a different flavour. Unfortunately, despite the diversity in taste, the chocolates are of low quality.
I found each flavour plain. I could distinguish somewhat amongst them however, they are all mish mashed, intertwined, and not in a good way. These could have been dollar store bought chocolates, and I would not have known the difference. Okay, okay, yes, I would have noticed but not the average person who is calm and sane around chocolates, unlike me! The coffee flavoured stick is particularly bitter, and not in a good “I’ll take my coffee black” type of a way. The milk crème bar tastes stale. The melt is acceptable although, I could not help but continue to think as to how low of quality these chocolates really are. The packaging is pretty to look at, but who cares if the bon bons are disappointing. I am not eating the wrapper, come on now. I would NOT repurchase again.

Gorgeously heart-shaped box surrounded by carefully chosen colours catered just for Valentine’s Day. Opening the individually wrapped and elegant bon bon, with black packaging and a hint of white for the branding was a delight. Wrapper is sturdy and tough. There is a shiny sheen to each dome shaped bon bon for an extra classic presentation. The dark chocolate is delicious however, Laura Secord has forgotten to list the % of cacao in her confectionery. Nevertheless, the sweetener is perfectly balanced, hoooray. Melting is slow to begin with, very slow, so so so slow, okay, you get the point yet once it starts, there is no going back. Oh yeah, here it goes, finally, a smooth melt. I am reaching for more. YES, I would repurchase.

Plain milk chocolate that is actually pleasantly nice. Ohhhhhhhhhh, what an astonishment. Simplicity in taste with a fresh aftertaste. Well-balanced overall. Russel Stover is an extremely affordable brand that also tastes right. This is a perfect example where the price does not reflect the chocolate. Well done Russel Stover. YES, I would repurchase.

Let’s just skip this review so that I do not throw in the hundreds of insults sitting and waiting on the tip of my tongue. You know that I usually hold no reservations but at this moment, I do not want to ruin my zenful mediation. “Keep it kind Soriah” is what I tell myself. Just know that I will never, ever, ever, did I say NEVER repurchase again, despite the pretty packaging.

My name is Soriah and I am an enormous lover of fine chocolates. I enjoy strolling through charming towns and by chance, finding a little, delightful chocolate gem hidden in the corner, offering bon bons that are ready to be just devoured.
