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 it tastes great, but the whole set up is pretty silly.
