Lindt Chili Chocolate: Rich And Mild

There’s a lot of yum in this wrapper.

For spicy food fans and adventurous eaters, spicy chocolate is one of the best things around, especially when it’s made by a chocolatier that is known for high quality work.

Take for instance the Lindt Chili chocolate bar. Its mix of high quality cocoa and spicy red pepper may not be the hottest in town, but boy is it tasty. It’s a perfect spicy dark chocolate for those that love just a hint of heat.

What’s in Lindt Chili chocolate?

Like all Lindt chocolates, the ingredient list is rather short and that’s a good thing: sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, milk fat, soya lecithin (an emulsifier, helping things mix), ┬áchili extract, and artificial flavoring. That’s the kind of short list you like to see. Lindt makes its chocolate the right way.

How does Lindt Chili taste?

Let’s start with the dark chocolate itself. It’s rich and smooth. There’s a lingering sweetness to the chocolate that complements the spice perfectly.

In terms of chili pepper spice, it’s a slow build. Your first bite of chocolate might leave you wondering where the heat is at all. But it’s there. You’ll start feeling it a few seconds after the initial bite. Now, this isn’t intense heat by any means. Lindt didn’t load this with red chili pepper extract. It’s just enough to add something extra to their high quality chocolate bar, not to overwhelm it. The chocolate is still the star, as it should be.

So if you’re looking for a top-of-the-line chocolate experience with just a little more oomph, then the Lindt Chili chocolate bar is right up your alley. It’s even enjoyable for those that typically turn away from spicy foods. You can find it at many supermarkets and gourmet shops.
