Chilebrown at home

Lindt & Sprungli are master Swiss chololatiers since 1845. They claim to select the highest quality cocoa beans to create the finest textures and tastes chocolate can offer. This chocolate bar has been imported from Stratham, New Hampshire. The reason we are trying this chocolate today is because it is a dark chocolate bar with chili. This bar is infused with spicy red chili. Chocolate and Chili are wonderful and complementing flavors.


Sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, milk fat, soya lecithin (emulsifier), chili extract, artificial flavoring. May contain traces of peanuts/tree nuts.

I am scratching my head already with the artificial flavor and the nut traces. I am also wondering if a red flag should be raised on not naming the chili extract. We will have to give it an old fashion taste.

The chocolate bar smells wonderful. It smells of a deep dark rich chocolate. I almost started to drool while smelling this bar. There is no aroma of chili present.

The first bite is a mouthful of sweet dark chocolate. I almost taste a little smokiness with this chocolate. It is very sweet. Several seconds later a warming glow will hit the back of your tongue. It is not a nuclear blast of heat. It is a mellow tinge of heat to tell you that chili is present. I could not identify the chili type This is a grown up chocolate bar. You can savor the deep dark chocolate and it is accompanied by a wisp of chili flavor.

I would recommend this chocolate bar to every grownup that likes chili peppers and chocolate. This bar is perfect for an after dinner nibble. I wish we knew what type of chili that was used in the extract. Chili extract usually scares me but this was put to a flavorful use. The price is right. ($3.50/3.5 oz.). These bars can be purchased at most of your local places of shopping. Give it a try!

Dang. Now I'm going to have to go back the Ghirardelli factory in San Leandro -- since they're the ones who make Lindt in the United States.

Such a pity they use soy in it. I'll have to get my choco-chile combo in my cocoa, I guess.

Kailyn, Pick up a couple for me.

Zia, Soy? I guess that is the soya lecithin? They should of used bacon fat!

At least it is dark chocolate.
