    Does anybody know where you can buy the blue Lindt?
    It’s something I have rarely seen.

    Great thread !

    Yesterday I bought the first chocolate slab of the season, think the last time I had chocolate was April; I really don't fancy it at all in Spring/Summer, not even chocolate ice cream.

    I usually buy simple dark chocolate slabs, unsually plain and sometimes with hazelnuts.
    Love chocolate-coated orange peel and also ginger.
    So it is a Yes from me re the : orange flavour.

    Re: Christmas sweets, I love Candied Chestnuts/Marrons Glacé and only have them at Christmas time.

    Again, great thread ! Am eagerly following re: new product launches.

    Too much temptation. Trying hard to get my act together and starting to make progress so threads like these are a killer to read when working.

    Now to start by resisting the temptation to actually read the thread LOL.

    I’m not a fan of Lindt either.

    Me neither. They're not thick or smooth enough and are quite salty. Now don't get me wrong, I'd eat them no bother if offered one :D But they definitely wouldn't be my chocolate of choice.

    I was just about to post the same thing. Well I guess it wouldn’t be Christmas without a good family row.

    And I guess we found our Roses vs quality street style debate for this year. Lindt YAY or nay?

    Glad to see I'm not alone. Feel the need for a "Say no to Lindt" signature but I'm almost always on the phone and it's easy too fiddly


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,916 ✭✭✭✭ freshpopcorn


    As I said my favorite lindtt is the blue ball because it's lovely and sweet. (I'm a real kid at heart.)
    However I much prefer the little Lindt balls than the big ones.

    From you previous post I was thinking ba-humbug DVB, and I was daydreaming about a bag of buttons and a cup of tea. But I agree, I am too weak at the moment and will end up breaking. I will be back in seven weeks.

    Ps. Curly wurly dunked in tea.

    I wish we had a Lindt store or concession here.

    I was in one in France I think. It was great to mix and match.

    Have you tried the new salt caramel ones? They are lovely.

    Is there a LINDT concession in Kildare village? I feel like I’ve seen it. And used it. But bare in mind I may have dreamt this.

    I have not tried the salted caramel ones. Yet.

    Wow there is, i didn't know as I've never been.

    The store does this little gold wrapped sweet that's solid hazelnut chocolate.

    Will make a trip when things ease down

    Thank you
