    Lindt 90% cocoa chocolate

    Post by Guest on Sat Aug 16 2014, 19:10


    Popped into my local Waitrose earlier for my Saturday evening chocolate treat. I always go for the 85% or 90% cocoa bars, and noticed Lindt Excellence 90% blow-your-socks-off-after-one-square Dark Supreme is currently on offer at £1.89. With a My Waitrose card I got it for £1.70. Resistance is futile....  Very Happy

    Thanks for this 'tip off' we always have the 85/90 dark chocolate in the house.

    I will be using 'My Waitrose' card again soon I can see.

    All the best Jan

    Best idea ever off a lowcarber was one square of 90% in a cup of coffee with sweeteners. Can't remember who it was but it is one of my favourite treats now.

    I think it may have been Scandichics suggestion but I do enjoy it. With sugar free jelly that would be the best treat ever! You can tell I live on the edge.

    90% dark chocolate is the only allowable treat for me as all low carb desserts make me overeat so I've stopped making them. I never overeat the chocolate.

    Lindt is great chocolate, but one we often buy is Sainsbury's Taste the Difference 85% Cocoa. It's handy to have the pack that contains five bars as each bar is 4.2 carbs.

    Do you know what ...... that's only 2.1 carbs each if we share  lol!

    i do have a slight problem with chocolate Sad 70% - 90% its very hard no to eat a lot of it if its 70, a little easier with the 90 but i really need to cut down

    mrs vimes, do you actually drop the square into the drink? does it not just melt and leave a slushy chocolate bottom in the cup? ill try it today lol i love to drink hot drinks while eating the choccy but never tried it in the drink

    Sorry but I cannot claim this one. But choc mug cake recipe which I make by swapping out the plain choc for choc orange from Lidl. That's mine. Yum. About to make a cake for guests. Betty Crocker special so will just have to have thin slice.  Sad Sad

    l always dip my chocolate 90%. No just dip like a bicci not to long few seconds suck off melted and dunk suc off melted dunk.....you get the idea. Also nice in my hot milk.

    By the likes you lot have expensive tastes. Sainsburys do 90% and often have it on special offer. l am lower class than you all so l go to them for my 90% Lindt :-))

    Put the square in the bottom and pour the hot coffee on top then stir. If you don't you still get a taste but it does stay at the bottom. Love it !

    For those that like Lindt Chocolate ......... Sainsburys have it on special offer at the moment 25% off. I think that means current price is £1-50 a bar ?

    This price is for all their Lindt chocolate. We have the higher percentage cocoa 85/90% but for those that can tolerate a few chunks of the 70% you may wish to purchase.
    Just a thought  Smile

    .......Hi all, for those who are dark chocolate lovers, in Tesco the other day we spotted their own 'Finest Swiss 85% dark chocolate' Carb count for two squares 3.7g.

    Not Lindt but I think to a dark chocolate connoisseur ...acceptable.

    What do you think  Question

    Yes I like Tesco Swiss dark chocolate. I prefer the Lindt 90% when I can get it though. Yum!

    One of the pleasures of the crap Saturday TV schedules is headphones, a whisky and 90% dark chocolate. I gum 2 squares to death.
