Lindt Excellence Coconut Bar

Although I was not very excited about the Lindt Excellence Caramel with a Touch of Sea Salt bar that I was sent as a member of the Lindt Excellence Influencers club, I wasn’t scared off. I mean, a Coconut dark chocolate bar still required evaluation.


This bar, with a 47% cacao chocolate base, has a clear coconut aroma, with bits of coconut that are well-distributed throughout the bar.


The base chocolate has a dominant coffee flavor, yet avoids a bitter bite that some coffee-centric dark chocolates put off. The melt is smooth and not at all dry.

The coconut is flavorful and well-toasted. Since I adore chocolate and coconut together, I do like this bar, but I think that other coconut bars, such as the Elbow No. 16 Dark Chocolate and Coconut bar, are much better. 

That said, this bar is much easier to find throughout the U.S. - I've even seen it at CVS, so it's a great solution for any and all chocolate-coconut emergencies.

  1. I have actually bought this bar at a pharamacy before. It's decent. Not my favorite chocolate but I was craving chocolate+coconut.

  2. I wasn't crazy abot their sea-salt bar either, I think I ended up passing it off to someone. I'm much more interested in this and their white chocolate w/ coconut.

  4. I eat dark chocolate (Lindt is an excellent brand) like every night (just part of a bedtime "snack"...I tend to eat a lot at night...I know, its not a good thing :(
    But I eat like 30 grams per night...oh well :)

  5. I just stumbled across your blog, and it made me smile. I love chocolate! Have you tried Lindt LINDOR dark chocolate truffles? (These: http://www.lindtusa.com/product-exec/product_id/364/category_id/29/nm/LINDOR_Truffles_Dark_Chocolate_Box_120_Count) Those are my all time favorites and I'd like to read what you thought of them.
