Chocs.



I'm not a big eater of Chocolates, or any other sweets; but in this case I could be persuaded.

These Lindt 'Pyrenees' chocs are so bloody delicious, that I'm beginning to understand people's addiction.

Oh yes!

  1. Like many other women, I sometimes crave chocolates. Lindt has some good ones, and those look wonderful. What is the filling?

    1. They have a soft-ish creamy chocolate inside. Really delicious.

  2. They look good and I see they are dark chocolate which is what I always eat - less sugar and I tell myself chocolate is good for me.

    2. Did she get you in a headlock?

  3. It looks like there are 4 layers. One daily, and sharing with Lady M, should last you 20 days...will they, hmmm? :)

    2. Maria, I have no idea what Epiphany is, but thank you for your good wishes.

      I think there are only two layers, and I've already noticed this morning that there are a lot less in the box. Not guilty!

    3. It's when the 3 wise men finally turned up at the stable with the gold, frankinsence and myrhh.

    4. Oh that chocolate box is a cheat; it looked like there were more in there!

      Cro, I know that you know what Epiphany is and I do not want to seem like I am giving a lesson but only want to say how it's seen here: for believers; Epiphany is to celebrate the 12th night, and as Rachel mentions, when the three wise men pay their visit to baby Jesus. Pagan belief; the witch gets burnt on a haystack in most city squares here in front of the city hall, and where the ashes' sparks go, then that will tell if it will be a good/bad year for crops. For children; it means receiving gifts in a stocking. For me; it is the official end of Christmas celebrations!

    5. I really didn't know what Epiphany was. I know we buy 'Gallettes' here, but I didn't know what the occasion was.

  4. So you've joined our club! Congratulations. Not so clever of lady M. Less for her

    1. One was enough; just to see what I'm missing.

  5. Bad Cro, put them down NOW!

  6. Oh, delicious! I eat chocolate every day (though little amounts, and very dark), and nobody has to tell me that it is good for the heart (though it is) - it is good for the soul too! Happy New Year, Cro!

    1. I have an in-built aversion to anything sweet, but like to try some on occasions.

  7. My father always insisted on Lindt chocolate every time. It's so delicious. Lucky you for having that much to get through just after Christmas

    1. I was quite amazed by how good this was, but I shall leave it at just one.

  8. On hols down south, we visited the Lindt 'factory' in Oloron-Sainte-Marie. No great displays and tour within the works but a large shop and tonnes of chocs stacked up! Bank card out and activated.

    1. I've been around the Moet 'factory', and we were given samples!

  9. Are they a bit like Lindor? The ones in the red box? I can't just eat one of those, I have to eat the lot in one go!

    1. I don't know what Lindor is I'm afraid, but these are worth buying if you like good chocolate.

  10. I know what you mean about not having a sweet tooth...now if they had been mini Melton Mowbray pork pies or even pieces of Roquefort cheese (or any cheese) mmmmmm

    1. Guess what I had for lunch? A medium sized Waitrose M M Pork Pie that had been in the freezer; and half left over for tomorrow!

  11. I don't think I have seen those particular Lindt chocolates before. Perhaps Lindt's Fifth Avenue boutique carries that variety. That shop is a stop I make while at the Fifth Avenue Easter Parade to break my Lenten chocolate fast.

    1. I'm sure they would have them, I think they're their 'best sellers'.

  12. I had to put the rest of the chocolates in the freezer so I would stop eating them! I've never understood people who said they didn't like sweets. You couldn't even tempt me with a pork pie, however. -Jenn

    1. OK, you keep the sweets, and I'll keep the Pork Pies!

  13. Now I want to know exactly what is inside that wrapper (in detail, layer by layer) - I do hope there is marzipan in there somwhere.

    1. They're just plain chocolate, but very smooth, not hard, and particularly delicious. You should try them.
