Okay now, you must admit, this Lindt Pistachio Filled Milk Chocolate Bar has some seriously nice looking packaging, so nice that it is a true invitation for a taste. I got lured in! I am too weak, phew! How could I resist purchasing this? IMPORTANT, please note, Muffy is not included with the chocolate purchase, he is actually one of my best friends, BONUS, a fluffy friend who I can do cuddle feasts with. Ohhhhh. I have three fluffs, all of them the same breed, Pomeranians. Playful, loving, flirtatious, devious, and mischievous are perfect ways to describe their persona. Muffy is the oldest. He is off-white as you can see from the photo. Then there is Molly. She is completely black, pretty rare for a Pom. Lastly, little Melia, and I am not exaggerating with the word little. She weighs 2.2 lbs, and is completely snow white. Melia is one year old but that is her fully-grown adult size. She is quite delicate, and therefore is treated as such. All three of my Pomeranians are wonderfully behaved, especially with me but that is not the case when it comes to other dogs. Muffy continuously wants to start fights with dogs four times his size. Molly on the other hand only looks for holes in the ground to dig, and petit Melia mostly helps Muffy with the combats. Since she is so miniature in size that most dogs end up being at least seven times bigger than her. Oh, I almost forgot. When Melia is not bullying other dogs and even sometimes humans, she is too busy flirting. I have to catch her in the act. In the meantime, I will post photos of chocolates with my other two fluff balls posing. On no, I am off topic once again now but I have an excuse, a really good one, Muffle. He is now eyeing me with dirty looks. Regardless, here is the final review. Firstly, you must check out the ingredient list at the bottom of the page. I am not impressed. The very first ingredient listed is sugar, if you then scroll down, palm oil, and artificial flavour make the list. Oh boy. There go the points in ------------------------ minus state. Let’s search for any positive aspects, hmmmm the packaging. The chocolate bar does not taste like pistachio at all. I would not have thought that this is what the flavouring was if I was doing a blind test. The nut flavour is prominent due to the texture but I would not be able to tell what kind it is. Despite this downfall, overall, it is a nice chocolate bar. It actually tastes like a regular bar, which would then not justify the exaggerated price tag. I think it is overly priced for something that is quite ordinary. It does melt smoothly but the aftertaste is sugary. This is not a grown up chocolate but more for kids, ones who love sugar infested sweets but at the same time, would not be able to afford the price tag. I am sorry Lindt but this Pistachio filled milk chocolate bar is just not working. Perhaps if some ingredients are replaced and a more prominent pistachio flavour is introduced, I could then see this being a hit. Otherwise, as the famous saying goes, “Hit the road Jack!”

This is truly a brand new flavour from Lindt. When I first took a glance at this bar in one of their gorgeous boutiques, I knew that it had to go home with me. Who would have thought, Sesame Seeds and Dark Chocolate, I think that they might very quickly become best friends. This bar has now been sitting on my testing shelf, alongside all of the other chocolate bars, and I really could not wait any longer. I reached for it and decided that today is Sesame Testing Day. Okay, first thing is first, let’s get the negativity out of the way so we can make more room for the positive. I am not a fan of the artificial flavours in the ingredient list and this reflects my rating. That’s all. Phewww. Now the positive, yeahh. First thoughts: awesome, wow, delicious. It is a hit. I love the nutty flavour of the sesame seeds that emerges after the Choco infestation has pleasantly melted in my mouth. A delightful crunch explosion is left, and at that moment, I seem to have entered a pure Bliss state of mind. Lindt, you have outdone yourselves with this one. What a creation!!! The dark chocolate is not harsh in any way or form but then again, it is on the lower side, 47% so I do not expect it to be bitter. This is an exquisite concoction that deserves a congratulations. Smooth, versatile meaning that it will pair up with many delicious foods, and the bar will surprise you with every bite, I really could not ask for more. Next time you decide to hold a party or even go to a ball, make certain that you provide this delightful chocolate to all. Goodie bags for everyone!

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.
