I bought this Lindt Croquant de Caramel bar in France. It’s “lait aux éclats de fin caramel”, or milk chocolate with caramel (toffee) bits/chips. I swear, French makes everything sound better.
Check out the description from the back of the box: “D’abord un plaisir pour les yeux avec sa belle teinte blonde ou l’on devine le caramel. Ensuite, vinet le plaisir de tous les sens: le fondant d’un chocolat au laut velouté marié au délicat croustillant des éclats de caramel blond.”
The bar smells lovely – sweet, dusky, thick, and caramel-y. The bar has a pleasant snap to it, surprising for a milk bar. It’s generously studded with crunchy toffee bits.
The milk chocolate (30% according to the back of the box) didn’t melt and coat the tongue like Lindt milk chocolate usually does. I wonder if it was a different formulation for this bar?
The toffee bits cleave cleanly under my teeth. They taste sweet and buttery, with honey highlights.
The milk chocolate and toffee is a bit sweeter than I tend to like my chocolate, but the combination does work well together. An OM.
Cybele from Candy Blog reviewed the U.S. version of this bar, called Lindt Toffee Crunch.
