So, yesterday, when out and about with Cathy, we'd gone to Target. After buying some knick-knacky items, we found ourselves in the candy aisle.

I spotted the Lindt Chocolates. Now, not for nothing, yeah, I can sit down and devour a bucket of chocolate, no problem --- although, i find that I am more a savoury girl than a sweet one. Give me some chips, dips, cheeses, pepperoni, crackers or whathaveyou and i'm a happy chick.

anyway, that said, i'm not one to shy from the cocoa bean.

i am, however, one to have a little trepidation when it comes to spicy stuff. i'll eat it and i will love it, but, then i wind up blogging about what colour the paint is on my bathroom wall for 2 hours.


where was i? oh yes, staring at the Lindt items.

There it was. I've always heard that it's a delightful combination. I've watched the Top Chef. I've watched the Iron Chef. I've not had the conversation about this particular combo with a certain Chef that I know (TB™)

In the Lindt aisle, there was a Lindt Excellent Chili Infused Chocolate Bar.

The packaging was wonderful. Sturdy, easy to open, I wound up slowly opening it like Charlie did with his golden ticket bar. Slowly, just taking it all in.

I broke off a square... bit into it... tasted like chocolate. Decent, creamy, slightly bitter, dark chocolate.

I swallowed the piece... and then it happened.

Just a warm tingling sensation - not unpleasant - climbing up my throat. I could still taste the chocolate, but, the spice of the chili just enhanced it. It was brilliant.

So far, I've only had 2 squares of the Chili Chocolate. I think that it needs to be savoured and not just wolfed down.

Nice glossy package, but is it really 'the' chocolate? *sighs* I still prefer their plain ol' semi-sweet. Just call me a plain Jane Jan.

jan, it's decent. i never said that i'm going to eat it 100% of the time. it's pretty good though (of course, give me a plain ol' hershey bar and i'm good with that as well)
