The challenge is simple, how can a fine chocolate company take great chocolate and make it cheesy and a little harder to get at. The answer is the Lindt Ghosts. My first problem with these is the chocolate on a stick factor. I just don't get it. Why in the world would someone need chocolate on a stick? Are you supposed to eat it like a lollypop? Maybe it's for people that can't finish a whole stick at a time so they have to eat some and save the rest for later. For me though chocolate on a stick is just an inconvenient way to eat chocolate.
My other problem with these is the fact that I've seen a very similar treat that comes out around Easter but instead of ghosts they are little chocolate carrots. That makes more sense than these upside-down ghosts. I'm not sure which came first but I'm pretty confident that the carrot is a better idea.
After saying all this I have to complete this review with the simple fact that the chocolate wasn't too bad. Lindt chocolate is good stuff and these are no exception, so as a treat all I can say is yummy. I'm not a huge fan of white chocolate, which can be found in the centre of these, but since it's pretty good quality stuff I don't mind it.
Basically, these Lindt Ghosts tastes great, but the whole concept is pretty silly. It really feels like I’m just eating left over chocolate carrots from last year. I’m sure Lindt can think of something a little more creative for Halloween.
