REVIEW: Lindt Chocolates

I had the opportunity this month to review some Lindt Chocolates that one of my readers sells. Elizabeth Osborne, of The Young Retiree blog, wrote to me awhile back and asked if I wanted some free chocolate in exchange for a shout-out, and how could I refuse? ;D

Lindt Chocolate seasonal variety packI received a variety of chocolates and they are all very delicious! I love how creamy they are and every flavor is just as wonderful as the last. They have varieties with and without nuts (although the facilities are not separate, so none of them can be considered nut-free).

They have many varieties of chocolate, including seasonal options. While I haven't tried each and every one, based on what I have tried, I would recommend anything they sell!

One really cool thing that they have on the Lindt website is recipes to make with your chocolate! Interesting, right? I really want to try this one for an Iced Mocha:
