It's Easter! And of course, that means only one thing. We can eat as much chocolate as we like and we don't have to feel guilty about it! Duh, it's the only time of year we can do this so we might as well make the most of it right? I'm quite picky when it comes to chocolate as I'm really not a fan of Cadbury's so when it comes to Easter I'm a Lindt, Galaxy or Malteser kinda gal and if not then I probably won't bother. I don't eat it in huge amounts still though, I'm more of a savoury kind of gal but there's just something I really fancy about this time of year and I make my easter eggs last.
I got probably the most exciting delivery I've ever received. Lindt sent me a big box of Easter goodies to tell you all about and I can tell you I'm blooming excited to write this post! There's just something about Lindt that feels a whole lot more luxurious from the other chocolate brands that you can pick up at the supermarket. If I'm looking to impress without spending A LOT (I'm talking a Hotel Chocolat kind of budget) then I will always go for Lindt. I guess it's one of those brands that everyone likes, right?
Lindt Lindor is one of the most recognisable ranges from Lindt and I'm forever spying it all year round. The strawberries and cream ones are divine and I've got my eyes on the coconut ones, I just need to try them! If these beautiful chocolates are included with an easter egg then I am totally game for that. I got my hands on the Milk Chocolate Original Lindt Lindor Easter Egg* and the Strawberries and Cream White Chocolate Lindt Lindor Easter Egg. Both in gorgeous packaging that I know just about anyone would be happy to receive.
The next egg I'm talking about is one I just have to keep for myself. Any mixture of chocolate and nuts and well, I'm in heaven. The Lindt Master Chocolatier Collection Heavenly Hazelnut Easter Egg* looks delicious. I've been saving it to take these pictures and I cannot wait to delve in now this post is written. I've been toying with eating it all to myself or taking it home for the weekend with me to share. I think I'll go for the latter and look after my waist line a little but you know, I still get to eat some of it right?
The bunnies, oh the bunnies! Standing right next to the Lindor, the Lindt Gold Bunnies are right up there on the Lindt recognisable scale. Alert, there is a massive bunny, alert! I could not believe my eyes when I saw the Limited Edition Lindt Gold Fashion Bunny in Milk Chocolate* it is insane. I love having the little ones too (I got my hands on the Lindt Gold Bunny in Milk Chocolate*, White Chocolate*, Dark Chocolate* and Hazelnut* - I did not realise they had so many different kinds!), they look just like the babies and the Fashion Bunny the Mum or Dad! Crazy. But so so amazing.
Something else great for Easter is a great box of chocolates. I remember when I was younger I used to always ask for a box of chocolates over an Easter Egg as it made me feel all special and more mature. Silly really but I loved it and this one from Lindt looks just as good.
I know this post was totally rave-y but why wouldn't I be this excited about Chocolate. I don't even need to taste it before writing this, I just know it will taste amazing and I've tried a lot of Lindt in the past (my valentines post here!) and it tasted amazing so I just know this will too.
What's your favourite chocolate?
