The other week I popped into a convenience store in order to buy my dad some Kit Kats for his lunch box (a scenario that is twistedly back to front, know), but instead I found some Lindt Creation chocolate bars. At £3.99 for 150g, they were ridiculously overpriced, but since this was the only place I have ever encountered them, I thought I would give them a one off try just to see what they were like.
Having sampled and enjoyed three other varieties of Lindt Creation before, I had high hopes, and was not left disappointed.
The theme of these bars is to have an indulgent filling, and my favourite out the two was Chocolate Cake. I think Chocolate Pudding would have been a better name, not only because of the picture on the packaging, but also because it resembles a chocolate pudding's melt in the middle centre.
It does not achieve the same satisfaction you get with a chocolate pudding, but it is the best that can be achieved in a chocolate bar, and the filling does not spill out all over the place, meaning no sticky fingers.
Coming in second is Pistachio Delight, which is a creamy green pistachio filling wrapped inside a dark chocolate shell. The dark chocolate prevents the bar from ending up too sweet, and there is an added bitterness to the filling as well, as piece of almonds are hidden inside.
In a saturated market Lindt Creation bars manage to stand out from the crowd, but at the price (and sparsity of availability), are also only an occasional treat.
