Lindt Edelbitter Collection for Mother’s Day

Normally we don’t celebrate holidays like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Since she turned 16, DD has learned that every weekend day is Teenager Day, during which she goes out and spends time with her friends, preferably at a disco or on the Stuttgart Schlossplatz.
This year was different. Sometime, while shopping in Stuttgart, she was overcome with love for her mother and decided to give me a Mother’s Day gift. Chocolate was, of course, the easiest selection. In addition to a lovely dinner out at the Irish Pub in the Stuttgart SI Zentrum, she gave me a box of Lindt Edelbitter chocolates.

Lindt & Sprüngli is one of my favorite companies. Not only do they manufacture huge volumes of delicious chocolate, they make the chocolate experience something wonderful. Lindt Germany also produces a regular magazine, with creative ideas from promi-chef Johan Lafer. Lindt USA is no slacker either, with a great website (try the brownies recipe).

This collection provided the usual quality from Lindt. Each approximately 3 cm piece of chocolate is made from their 70% chocolate and is filled with a deep chocolate mousse. Additionally, half the box is filled with either an orange filling or a sour cherry filling spiked with chili. The cherry-chili is the best flavor in the box, followed by the mousse alone. The orange was rather mild, but still a quality product. DH and I finished off my box on Father’s Day, while watching a Lara Croft film.

Personality: It just screams “Mom, you’re hot stuff!”

How to enjoy: A great TV chocolate. Modest price, lots of pieces, wonderfully smooth. Pleasurable kick from the orange and the sour cherry/chili flavors. (TIP: you can buy the cherry-chili in both the US and Germany as a whole bar)

1: Better than sex

3: Share with your best friend
4: Will do in a pinch
5: Halloween candy
