Good chocolate, but missing the spice

I bought a bar at Lindt, and it was nice and hot.
So good, I wanted a case of 12….
Sadly, the case I received was not spicy at all.
It was still good dark chocolate, though.
I would not have ordered had I known it would taste like dark chocolate without the hot chili spice that we were looking for. Ten people in our family tried this, and all agreed it was mild at most.

Lindt Excellence Chili Dark Chocolate Bar

I agree with the other reviews that said this did not have enough spice, not at all. I mean when I buy a chocolate that has chili in it, I expect it to have a kick, but this had no spice or even a little bit of a kick to it. It just tasted like chocolate. If you want a good chocolate bar with chili that you can actually taste then I would suggest “Chuao Chocolate Bar: Spicy Maya” It is so good and amazing!!! Dont get me wrong, this is a great chocolate but dont expect a chili kick to it.

Just enough spiciness to make it interesting

Someone brought a couple of Lindt Chocolates to a meeting at work, and this Chili bar was a big hit!
It has silky smooth dark chocolate, and after you eat it leaves a bit of lingering chili flavor. Just enough to make it interesting, not too much to make it too spicy for those who don’t like spicy foods. Just perfect for a candy bar.

I would have raved more about this wonderful chocolate bar, because I really liked it… But then I tried the second bar brought to the meeting and was totally blown away by its taste Lindt Excellence Intense Orange Dark Chocolate Bar, 3.5-Ounce Packages (Pack of 12). I immediately had to order the Intense Orange to have it all to myself.

Update 5/12/11

I came back to order more when I saw the price really has gone up from $27 (eligible for free shipping) to $39.99 plus shipping. When price fluctuates this much I use a nice online tool that I use to help catch a good price on Amazon. This tool is called “Online Price Alert”. This tool will send you an email when the Amazon item price reaches the target price range that you specify. If you search on “online price alert” in Google it will be come up at the top. I find this tool to be very helpful.

Quality chocolate with a just a hint of spice. If you’re looking for a super spicy treat, you’ll be disappointed. It’s a chocolate bar not hot sauce.

As always, Lindt does an excellent job of blending it’s high quality chocolate with the subtle spice of chili peppers. Highly recommended for the chocolate connoisseur.

Tastefully Done!

Dark chocolate masterfully prepared with that lingering chili sensation that makes this a dream choice for those that love dark chocolate with a little kick to it. The chocolate playfully teases the senses to wanting more. If you’re not careful, you will find it difficult to simply eat a bar slowly over time. Some will say that chocolate is not an addiction, but I can’t help but want more. I love this Chili Dark Chocolate.

Lindt Product

This is a great way to purchase Lindt Chocolate Bars because you save money buying in bulk. I received the exact same product which is in the retail stores. Love using Amazon for bulk purchases!

My friend saw these bars at a checkout and thought it sounded disgusting. I knew I had to try it because chocolate and spicy foods are my favorite. I usually add a bit of chocolate into my chili.

I adore it! You don’t overtly taste the chili. At first you taste the delicious Lindt dark chocolate. Then a spicy zing hits your mouth and throat for a wonderful finish. You’re left with endorphins rushing in from chocolate AND from spice. What more could you ask for?

I love all the Lindt bars but the chili and the sea salt are my top two favorites followed by the orange and the coconut white. All are very high quality melt on your tongue decadent chocolate. I can’t even eat other brands like Ghiardelli anymore, Lindt is far superior.

The chili mixes very well with the rich dark creamy chocolate. It is a very subtle warmth sensation on the back of the throat not hot on the tongue burning heat. The subtlety is perfect as it does not distract from the delicious chocolate it simply enhances it. The ancient Mayans would have used this as currency!

Delicious Lindt Chili Chocolate!

This is my favorite of all the Lindt Chocolate bars. I use it to create my molded chocolates for gift-giving. After tempering this chocolate, the chili flavor improves and is incredibly more intense. I just love this chocolate!

Smooth with a Distinct Kick!

The latest Lindt print advertising campaign suggests the dessert marriage of their Excellence Chili Dark Chocolate Bar with a glass of port. Port and chocolate? What’s not to like? When I couldn’t find this chocolate bar locally, I purchased a competitors product and was disappointed.

I decided to keep looking and I’m glad I did. Turns out Lindt’s Excellence Chili Dark Chocolate Bar is a divine treat, especially with a 2 ounce glass of port.

This flavor combination has become my very favorite dessert!

Good going, Lindt! Super smooth dark chocolate with a nice kick!

These are real good if you’re into spicy

I love these, at first you taste dark succulent melt in your mouth chocolate, and shortly after, a nice burn comes along to heat up your mouth. If you’re prone to heartburn from spicy foods, I’d avoid them, but otherwise these are definitely very tasty. The chili doesn’t seem to affect the flavor of the chocolate at all, it just adds heat, so it’s just a really good chocolate with a slight heat to follow it. Good stuff.
