Red Velvet Lindt Lindor White Chocolate Truffles Review
When you think of Valentine’s Day, you think of roses, cupid, hearts, wine, chocolates, and red velvet. Red velvet has become a Valentine’s Day MVP. You can use it as a way to let your special sweetheart know how much you care….or you can be a fat fuck and eat it on your own. Lindt Lindor probably wants you to be a fat fuck and eat it on your own — which explains why they launched this new Red Velvet Lindt Lindor White Chocolate flavor.
I spotted these Red Velvet Lindt Lindor White Chocolate Truffles at Target and just had to buy them. I am a huge fan of red velvet, so I couldn’t resist. No, I am didn’t buy them for my Valentine….it’s all for me. These truffles feature white chocolate instead of the original chocolate the classic truffles feature. I am assuming this is to replicate more of the cream cheese flavor found in red velvet cakes.
Before I dive right in. I want go over the smell of these truffles really quick. They smell soooo incredibly sweet…very similar to cake frosting. I guess that’s a good thing though, since the flavor they are going after is red velvet.
Okay, let’s dive right in (I told you that it would be quick 😉 ). Holy sweetness…these truffles are just as they smell — incredibly sweet. Disappointment hits me pretty much immediately. These truffles don’t even taste like red velvet at all to me. There isn’t even a hint of red velvet that I pick up on. It tasted a lot more like a super sweet salted caramel flavor. Ughhhhh.
If I were to try these blindfolded, I would’ve never guessed that the advertised flavor was red velvet. What a shitty flavor and big let down. I normally am a HUGE fan of Lindt and red velvet in general, but I feel like this flavor was rushed to get it out on shelves on time for Valentine’s Day. I couldn’t pick up on a cream cheese flavor at all…which there should’ve been considering this was supposed to be red velvet. Also, the chocolate felt extremely waxy —- not what I am used to seeing from Lindt.
The moral of the story is…you can enjoy Valentine’s Day this year without these shitty truffles. Definitely do NOT buy a bag for your significant other…they’ll hate you forever. I promise.
