REVIEW: Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Truffles
When it comes to cookies, are you in the “soft & chewy” camp or the “crunchy” camp?
Maybe you like your cookies both ways equally. What if your cookies were, in fact, equal parts both?
How about this mindblower… what if they were neither? Let’s say you could take a cookie, re-imagine it, and tuck it nicely inside something else entirely…
What if your cookie were not a cookie AT ALL? ?
Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Truffles! In a perfect world, these will be the best Girl Scout Cookie meets the best holiday chocolate around.
In an imperfect world, this will still be chocolate.
I grew up with Lindt LINDOR truffles all over my household this time of year. They were either set up proudly in a candy dish or stuffed deep inside my Christmas stocking. If these new cookie truffles are any good, I’ll stuff them proudly down my pants and let them jingle all the way to the New Year.
Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Truffles are of the milk chocolate variety. They can be found exclusively at Target in the holiday section, or at some random end cap that you won’t be able to locate before you give up. They come 15 balls to a pack.
Like all their truffles, Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Truffles are overstuffed with filling. The filling is luscious and extra milky – everything you’ve come to expect from Lindt LINDOR truffles. The mint is really smooth too -almost too smooth for my liking. The mint plays an extreme second fiddle to the dairy in the milk chocolate. When I read these were infused with real peppermint oil, I was expecting (and hoping) for a stronger mint bite.
This was one of the least minty chocolate experiences I’ve had this winter.
Now, let’s talk texture. When I think truffle, this candy has exactly the fluffy & whipped texture that I expect. However, I expect a lot more crunch when I think “peppermint cookie.” The cookie bits are microscopic little guys resting randomly throughout the thin outer shell. 90% of the real estate of a Lindt LINDOR truffle is the filling. I would have loved to see Lindt reinvent their formula a bit by mixing the cookies throughout this creme. This is the only true way to separate a “peppermint cookie” experience from just another mint chocolate truffle.
Rest assured that Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Truffles are tasty, but the cookie bits played such a minor role that it felt like a cheap gimmick. The mint flavor could have/should have been a lot stronger too. I said earlier that these would still be good chocolate in an imperfect world…
