Product Review: Lindt Excellence: Chili

Be honest, if you've walked past any of the chili pepper-flavored chocolate bars at the store, you've probably thought, What? Chili peppers? Seriously? Why would anyone think that was a good idea? And then you walked away. I doubt you bought one so you could test whether or not it could be good.[1] So, I'll do it for you.

My verdict: The chocolate is creamy and dark. It has a slightly fruity flavor which is followed up by a mild, but noticeable heat. You might think that this would detract from the chocolate, but I didn't find that to be the case. If you can't handle spiciness at all, then you should probably avoid these. But if you like salsa or spicy chicken sandwiches, or Salsa Verde Doritos, then I think you should give this a try. And if you don't like it [2], you can give me the rest.


[1] More likely you were tempted by the mint, orange, or coconut flavored Lindt bars.

[2] If that's the case, then maybe this would make a good dieting chocolate—you'd only eat it when you really wanted chocolate.
