Isn’t this photo just awesome, the dark chocolate in front of the bookshelf background? I just love it since am obsessed with the smell and feel of books. Let’s not forget the shiny pages of photos. Nothing beats a paper book, I am still old-fashioned in that sense. I am not a huge fan of reading on my iPad, nor iPhone, e-reader or computer tablet. I just do not know why. However, I do appreciate the convenience of having ten books stored in my electronic devices though when I am travelling, but that is as far as it goes. At home, I love, love, love my paper books. Okay, I get carried away at times therefore, here is the review. This Ecuadorian Dark Chocolate is fairly good, although a bit on the bitter side, more so than the 99% dark chocolate that Lindt has to offer. The beans are harvested in the tropical coastal areas of Ecuador, and that is the reason for this harsh aftertaste. It is still creamy, and the melting action is fine, but there is a very faint sandy taste. I am a bit surprised about that since Lindt is known for their famous cocoa butter in all of their chocolate bars, larger amount in some than others such as the Lindt Truffle Balls. I do appreciate the ingredients as there are no artificial flavours nor any hydrogenated oils of any kind. This Chocolate bar offers a very intense flavour. If you are looking for something that will give you a “pick me up jolt” without the sugary effect, then this Lindt Excellence Ecuador 75% Dark Chocolate Bar is just for you. Pair it up with a good sweet fruit and you have yourself a real healthy treat.

Chocolisciously Delightful Rating: 3.9 / 5.0
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.
