A couple of weeks ago I got a cryptic message on Twitter asking my opinion on cherry chocolate. Luckily I love cherry chocolate and so this little parcel came in the post! Thanks Sally!
Inside the Jiffy bag of dreams was a bar of the brand new Lindt Excellence Cherry Intense Chocolate and a little box containing a chocolate cherry. The chocolate is divine. It’s a rich dark chocolate that Lindt are famous for with little pieces of cherry and almond inside. Yum yum yum!
My favourite cherry flavoured chocolate treat hails from down under. The Cherry Ripe is, according to Cadbury, Australia’s oldest chocolate bar. It’s cherry pieces mixed in with coconut and then covered in dark chocolate. I suppose it’s a bit like a mix between a raspberry Ruffle (remember those?) and a Bounty but with cherry. Basically, it’s awesome! And I’m very sad that Cadbury UK don’t make them. I used to pick one up when I visited London because there was the Australia Shop in Covent Garden. Sadly, the shop is now closed. You can order them online but I really don’t want to pay silly money for a chocolate bar, however delicious they are.
So I’m really pleased that this Lindt Cherry Intense is available now. It’s totally not the same as a Cherry Ripe but it’s still very good.
What do you think about cherry chocolate? Have you tried this new flavour?
