Lindt Creation Creme Brulee

Place purchased: Lindt Chocolate Shop 

Price: $5

Number of reviewers: 7

Appearance - 7.9

The Lindt Creation Creme Brulee bar is segmented into large, square pieces. The bar consists of milk chocolate and a cream-colored filling with occasional dark pieces of burnt sugar. The ingredients lists wafer pieces, which seem to be the same color as the cream filling. 

Flavor and Taste - 7.9

The bar tastes mostly sweet and milky until the flavor of the burnt sugar pieces is unleashed by biting into them. Then the taste becomes overwhelmingly bitter. Also, the wafer pieces impart a faint cardboard flavor. 

E: Flavor is weak and a little cardboard-y.
G: Great taste! Can taste the creme brulee filling very easily. 
J: Good, but not much stands out in terms of a different/distinguishing factor. 
S: Creamy - like custard. Has a slight burnt sugar note at the end.

Texture - 7.4

The chocolate and cream filling are both soft and rich. In contrast, the burnt sugar pieces are hard and crunchy, and the wafer pieces are slightly crispy. 

D: Would like more of a snap. 
E: Chocolate is too firm and filling is a bit too dense. 
G: Get a hint of crunch - reminiscent of creme brulee topping. 
J: I like the small/slight crunch that comes with the center fillings. 
S: Has crunchy pieces in it.

Aftertaste - 6.9

The aftertaste is very bitter from the burnt sugar. The cream center gives a less intense dairy flavor. 

D: Good quality milk chocolate for those who are into that kind of thing. 
E: Fatty, a little sour, and bitter caramel.
G: Great aftertaste of creme brulee. 
J: Milky, dairy. 
S: Burnt sugar and chocolate. 

Overall - 7.8

Overall, the burnt sugar pieces were incredibly bitter and diminished my liking of the bar despite its otherwise sweet and creamy flavor. If the Lindt Creation Creme Brulee bar contained caramelized sugar, rather than burnt sugar, like the ingredients list states, the bar would have tasted much better. 

D: Very tasty milk chocolate goes great with cream filling. 
E: Not a huge fan - aftertaste is a bit sour/bitter and the flavor and taste are lacking.
