Lindor Fudge Swirl Truffles


I'm not really sure how to write this review. The problem I have with this Lindor truffle is that I can't really tell the difference between it, and its regular milk chocolate version. Maybe if I had one of each and ate them right after one another I might be able to find a difference, but taste and texture wise I feel like I'm just eating a regular Lindor Chocolate Truffle. The only difference I could see is that there appears to be both a white and brown coloured filling in these, as opposed to just a brown filling.

I think where this truffle fails is in the expectation you get from the name. I'm not sure what they had in mind, but I thought it would be way more intense than just a regular milk chocolate truffle. If I was making a Fudge Swirl Lindor truffles I would probably go with one of two ideas. My first plan would be to use a completely different filling, like real fudge. It would have to be a little grittier than the filling normally found in Lindor truffles, and it should also be a lot more buttery. After all, butter is the key ingredient in making fudge. The second idea I had would work if you wanted to keep the style of filling you normally find in Lindor truffles. Instead of what appears to be a milk chocolate filling, I would go for a super dark chocolate filling, more than 60 percent even. With a sweet milk, or even white chocolate coating. I think the contrast would give a really strong cocoa blast.

If you want to know what I think of this truffle, just read my milk chocolate Lindor review, it's exactly the same. The one thing I did get out of this review however was some inspiration. I would love to see Lindt start to fill this truffles with a better variety of fillings. Instead of just a chocolate ganache, why not go a little crazy with things like brownies, cookie dough, or maybe even maple fudge.
