Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Lindt Petits Desserts Tarte Citron Meringue Confirmed sighting: Lindt Petits Desserts Tarte Citron Meringue
Posted: 19:17 Sun 06-Mar-2005. Price: 1.99/ 150g bar. Location: Waitrose, Bath. Sub-flavours: Hazelnut Praline, Dark Orange, Creme Brulee. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: I'm not a fan of Eurochocolate generally, so the daunting price on these nearly put me off (you could get about six times as much lovely Galaxy for the same money), but I do like a lemon meringue pie, so I decided to take an adventure into decadent extravagance. The results were better than feared - the lemon meringue filling isn't exactly *subtle*, but with bits of biscuit and meringue giving it a pleasantly crunchy/ moussey texture, it wasn't as overpoweringly sickly and gooey as you might fear. The Creme Brulee variety was less distinctive, being mostly vanilla-y with a vague burnt-sugar aftertaste, but that's probably as much creme brulee's fault as Lindt's. Not sure if these justify the horrendous price - even compared to normal Lindt chocolate they're brutally expensive - but they're pretty nice. Watch out, though, as the single chunks are colossal - there's about as much choc in one of them as an entire Cadbury's Wildlife bar.

..."Stuart Campbell" is back with this apparent new addition to the Lindt Petits Desserts range - plus I'm sure I saw some sort of orange-flavoured Lindt bar attached to the front of this week's Hello Magazine (cover price 1.85). Anyway, in other meringue-related mayhem, Wall's is reputed to be launching three ice-cream desserts (Lemon Meringue, Chocolate Brownie and Banofee Pie, 1.99 for 1-litre tub with a permanent "two for 3" deal), plus a "ice-cream blended with chocolate flakes" Lavazza version of their luxury Carte D'Or brand (2.79).

Comment: I have been eating the creme brulee version for years and I really like it. I will agree though that the chocolate dominates the flavour.

Comment: I have tried the new Walls banofee pie ice cream and its surprisingly nice for the money,but I would prefer it if they just brought back the old mint choc Gino Ginelli.

Comment: I have tried the Hazlenut, Creme Brulee and the Orange flavours. The Hazelnut one has been my favourite so far. I don't remember paying 1.99 through. Think the ones I had were a little cheaper. Very pleased with the quality of the bar.

Comment: I can confirm that Hello magazine did have a free orange Lindt bar with it. I regret to say that I have not had any 'cause my friend bought the magazine and thus the chocolate too. Also, harking back to the chocolate digestive with orange thread from a while back - I have still not had any success in purchasing these biscuits but I think my luck may be about to change as I saw them advertised on a bus stop this morning.

Comment: dunno if this is any help, but i think i got my choc digestives with orange from the Waitrose next to Finchley Road tube...

Comment: that is lots of help 'cause Finchley road is only two stops from where I live and I usually do my shopping in the O2 centre so thank you very much!

Comment: Tried the lemon one, nothing special but my taste buds haven't moved on from the 80's. OT - noticed Stuarts review from '96 was shown as an example of a good old fashioned review on UKR.

Comment: i fear you may be mistaken - it was "Stuart's" more recent review of Outrun 2? http://www.ukresistance.co.uk/2005_03_01_ukresistance_archive.html 17287 7

Comment: I know Ive been a bit lax reporting-wise recently but this seems the best place to mention the Lindt Petitis Desserts box of chocolates I recently found. They're truffles in white choc, dark choc, milk choc & hazelnut, and pistachio flavoured white choc (hard to describe really - but it's basically a green coloured pistachio flavoured choc that tastes strangely nice, infact it was the best of the bunch). They're only £1 per box in my local cheap shop, if anyone likes this sort of stuff keep an eye out in your local bargain shops.

Comment: Edit: They're actually called 'Les Mousses' but they taste like truffles.
