I am a big fan of Lindt chocolates and when Allen brought home a bar of Lindt Excellence Chili Dark I was intrigued and somewhat skeptical. I am not as crazy about spicy food like Allen is and was not sure I would like this chocolate. Visually the chocolate draws you in with its deep dark brown color. I was enticed since I love the taste of dark chocolate. Upon first bite you taste the richness of the dark chocolate and then you get a hint of spicy red chili which lingers for a moment. The spice is not overbearing but there is a level of intensity to it that is pleasing and warm. The flavor combination of dark chocolate with the red chili works real well.
