Lindt Intense Pear

This is another chocolate bar from the Intense line of Lindt, this one features pear flavours. The ingredient listing looks long for a Lindt bar, I think shorter is better, sugar, chocolate, almonds, cocoa butter, butterfat (milk), pear, apple, pineapple(!), natural pear flavour, soya lecithin (emulsifier), sodium alginate and calcium phosphate (thickeners), citric acid and vanillin. It's a Dark chocolate, though the cacao content is likely down near 49%.

How does it taste? Fairly good, not one of my favourite of the Lindt bars, the pear flavour is fairly subtle (ie. not Intense), and I'm not sure I like the combination of pear and chocolate. The crispness of the almonds was good for mouthfeel. A coworker of mine enjoyed it, she liked the flavour, and the chocolate taste.
