Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Lindt Petits Desserts
Posted: 17:21 Wed 22-10-2003. Location: Tesco Southampton. Sub-flavours: Hazelnut Praline, Creme Brulee, Dark Orange. Nutritional unusualness: Hazelnut praline "may contain traces of almonds".
"ChoccieMan" reports: Finally something a bit different in chocolate land. Clearly everyone is gearing up for Christmas (hence my earlier postings), so Lindt (one of my personal favourite brands of choccie) has come out with these little wonders. Each bar whilst appearing to be a normal Lindt tablet conceals layers of filling which provide much more interest than the normal "mint", "crunchie", "insert your own boring flavour" etc. The Praline is fabulous, very rich and tastes very much like an individual chocolate you'd expect to see in an expensive selection box. The Creme Brulee is perhaps too ambitious and just comes over a bit too milky and weak, but at least they tried. I haven't tried the Dark Orange (not around these here parts yet) - let's hope these sell well to inspire other companies to be a bit more adventurous as well.

...Ambassador Choccieman - with these exquisite sightings, you are really spoiling us! In other exotic developments: inexplicably seashell-shaped Guylian Praline chocolates are now available in an "indulgent" countline bar (40g for 39p); Woolworths has launched its own range of 5 new looky-likey chocolate bars, all retailing at 25p; and is it just me, or is Caddyshack pool prank contender Hershey's Reese's Nutrageous more widely available in London newsagents nowadays?

Comment: Reese's Nutrageous bars were recently selling in Home Bargains (bottom of the Moor in Sheffield) for the princely sum of 15p... they had those weird wafer peanutty type things made by Reese's as well. And (as mentioned in some other thread on this site), Burton's Salt and Vinegar Fish and Chips at 49p for 7 packs! Yay for Home Bargains!

Comment: I tried to Lindt Creme Brulee on Friday. Enjoyed it. Perhaps not the hit of the whole brulee, but otherwise a success. 16007 7 14

Comment: The creme brulee one is sexy! I was initially dubious as those Lindt Lindor are the most minging chocolate grease balls I've ever had the misfortune to eat. Not tried the tiramisu one yet.
