Lindt Hello My Name Is Range...Caramel Brownie & Strawberry Cheesecake (Sainsbury's Exclusive) Review


Whilst in Sainsbury's Local recently I spotted a stand bearing these new goodies from Lindt. They're part of a range called "Hello My Name Is..."  that are already available in Germany and from the UK Lindt online store. They're also now exclusively available at Sainsbury's, apparently, and come in 4 different varieties: Caramel Brownie, Strawberry Cheesecake, Cookies & Cream and Nougat Crunch. Each bar comes in a 39g stick format.

I chose Caramel Brownie and Strawberry Cheesecake as my first two to sample although will surely return to Sainsbury's soon to try the others!


Each bar carries the tagline "Nice to sweet you". Yes, these Lindt bars talk to you! Of course the only thing they would be "sweeting" was my belly, so how did they taste?

Hello My Name Is...Caramel Brownie
Caramel Brownie:
This bar is described as "Filled milk chocolate with caramel and brownie cream with dark biscuit pieces". It tasted - quite simply - amazing! The caramel was quite gooey and had a lovely buttery flavour, whilst the brownie cream was very rich and chocolatey with a nice crunch from the biscuit pieces. A perfect combination of tastes and textures - this was my favourite out of these two bars.

Hello My Name Is...Strawberry Cheesecake
Strawberry Cheesecake:
This one is described as "Filled milk chocolate with strawberry cream cheese and biscuit pieces filling". It was quite different from the Caramel Brownie bar but tasted just as delicious. The cream cheese filling was slightly sharp and tangy, just like cheesecake should be, and made for a lovely contrast with the sweeter strawberry flavour. The biscuit pieces added a nice savoury crunch which, combined with the cream cheese filling, made it very moreish. Overall, a very creamy and delicious bar that actually did taste like strawberry cheesecake.

Hello My Name Is...Strawberry Cheesecake
Overall
I think these new bars from Lindt are fantastic; they're indulgent whilst also offering something unique and a bit different. We've had endless new product releases from chocolate companies recently, but these bars stand out as offering truly good quality. I hope they're a big success and that we see more flavours from the "Hello" range in the future!

After trying these bars I can't wait to get my hands on the other two "Hello My Name Is..." flavours - please stay tuned for a review of those!
