I had seen the new line of Lindt chocolates on display at Target and refrained from picking one up just because I wasn’t able to pick the flavor I wanted. A few weeks went by and I headed into Target to buy some groceries and happened to have a $1 off coupon, so I figured I’d pick one up as a snack to share with my boyfriend one day. So I picked up the Lindt Hello My Name Is Strawberry Shortcake.
The candy bar is a milk chocolate bar that has a strawberry cream cheese center and it does have a little bit of a gritty crunch to the inside similar to a cheesecake crust. The chocolate itself is delicious – the classic smooth and creamy chocolate Lindt is known for. The filling … it’s alright, it wasn’t mind-blowing fabulous. It’s a strawberry cheesecake flavor that has a bit of gritty crunch to it, which I assume to be Lindts stab at the texture provided from graham cracker crust. The strawberry flavor however tastes exactly like candied strawberries – which is not a flavor I typically go for. It wasn’t horrible, but it just wasn’t my cup of tea. My boyfriend on the other hand, did enjoy it.
A bar contains 2 ½ servings, with 4 square pieces being a serving. A serving is 210 calories, which I feel is rather high for the amount of candy you do get – which calculates out to be 6 points plus values.
Have you tried any of the Lindt Hello My Name Is … candy bars?
