Lindt Oster Knusper

Judging by the photos in this blog, Christmas was just a few days ago, when I reviewed some Lindt chocolate-covered nuts, Christmas-style.
Well, today we have the Easter version of a similar product, the Oster-Knusper, or Easter Crisp.
Crisp they are, mostly because Lindt has only 2 candies with nuts, and both of those nuts are almonds. Sigh, I really miss the macadamias from the Christmas collection.
First, there's the Cappucino Crisp, a cookie with a nice coffee flavor. Pretty cool, you crunch into it, and the coffee aroma just fills your mouth.
Second, there are the Frühlings-Mandel, a roasted almond with a Bourbon vanilla white chocolate coating.
Third, the Frühlings-Amarettini, another cookie with an almond flavor coating. Oddly enough, the pieces in my box didn't have the nut/cocoa powder on the outside. I would take them back to the store and demand a replacement, but, you know, it's a Thursday night, and I'm watching TV, and I don't really want to go out to the store again just to complain.
Finally, we have another almond, but with a honey-touched white chocolate coating.
The cookies are nice, but I do miss the macadamias.
All in all, a lovely spring treat.
