Lindt Lindor Dark Peppermint

Lindt has some chocolate offerings flavoured with mint, such as Excellence Intense Mint and Lindor Mint, this is a version of Lindor with Peppermint and Dark chocolate (60% cacao content), a tie-in to Christmas, as the package displays holly leaves and candy canes (which are traditionally peppermint flavoured - though not so much these days, I have seen butterscotch, blueberry and lots of other flavours). The ingredient listing is very similar to other Lindor products, cocoa mass, sugar, coconut oil, palm kernel oil, cocoa butter, milk ingredients, soya lecithin, peppermint oil, vanilla, barley malt extract and artificial flavour.

How do they taste? Well, they don't remind me immediately of a candy cane, or even at all, the not-melt-so-fast chocolate coating and the melt-really-fast center bring you a shot of peppermint, though not that strong, and the dark chocolate is smooth and good tasting. I don't think I would buy these again, especially for $5-7 per bag.
