Lindt Lindor Strawberries & Cream (Limited Edition) Review
I've been itching to try these new Limited Edition Lindor Strawberries and Cream since they first appeared in shops a few weeks ago, and luckily thanks to a slew of recent discounts I couldn't say no - I picked them up for £3 at Sainsbury's, and they're around the £3 mark in other stores too.
They're described as "White chocolate truffles with strawberries and cream and a smooth melting filling", and are basically white chocolate Lindor with added flecks of strawberry and a strawberry truffle centre. The ingredients list both cream and strawberry powder, so these are genuinely made of both strawberries and cream!
Unwrapping one I was met with what can only be described as the smell of strawberry milkshake. This was a good sign!
Cutting it open revealed the slightly pink coloured centre which was quite firm at this point:
Popping a whole one in my mouth I was first met with the creamy white chocolate - it was excellent quality and the cream powder was very evident. As the filling began to melt it released a strawberry milkshake-like flavour - it tasted absolutely delicious, and it wasn't long before I was reaching for another! These were insanely addictive and surprisingly not too sickly for white chocolates.
Overall, these Lindor strawberries and cream are a triumph - the perfect gift for Valentines Day...or scoffing all to yourself! I'll definitely be stocking up on them before they disappear from shelves.
RATING: 9 out of 10.
Price: £3 at Sainsbury's (along with rest of the Lindor range). Also available at Wilkinsons, Morrisons, Tesco.
