Last Minute Valentine's Day Gift Ideas -- Lindt Chocolate Truffles (Review)

"Lindt is mastering the seduction of smooth this Valentine’s Day. The 2013 Lindt Valentine’s Day collection offers a wide assortment of premium gifts to share with everyone – including loved ones, friends and colleagues. No one knows smooth better than Lindt – and with its irresistibly smooth melting LINDOR truffles, the Lindt Valentine’s Day assortments are sure to make every heart melt. Available beginning in January 2013, the Lindt Valentine’s Day collection can be found at retail locations nationwide. A limited collection will be available on as well."


If you didn't win my Lindt truffle bag giveaway, which ended this AM, you still have time to pick up Lindt's signature chocolate truffles for yourself or to give as a gift this Valentine's Day.  I was recently sent the following heart shaped boxes filled with Lindor truffles to sample with my family, and had a blast with our in-house taste of the different truffle flavors:

LINDOR Truffles Gift Heart (8.5 oz.)
Give a piece of your heart with the new LINDOR Truffles Gift Heart. Surprise that special someone with this elegant and festive heart, filled with irresistably smooth milk chocolate LINDOR truffles.

NEW! Gourmet Truffles Heart (5.6 oz.)
Beautiful on the outside and delicious on the inside, the Gourmet Truffles Heart comes in a romantic heart-shaped box filled with double-dipped gourmet truffles in five luxurious flavors milk chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate, hazelnut, and vanilla.
SRP: $9.99


If you have not had the chance to try Lindt Chocolate and love chocolate truffles, now is the best time to try these rich and delicious truffles.  Out of the two heart-shaped boxes filled with truffles from Lindt, I have to say our family loved the Gourmet Truffles Heart box, which was filled with doubled dipped chocolate truffles.  Without reading the booklet included in the box, which told us what each truffle was -- either milk chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate, hazelnut, and vanilla -- we opted to simply pick one and try to determine the flavor as we savored each and every bite of the truffle.  This was the fun part of the review.  Even the girls got in on the fun, as seen in the photo above.  

Lindt truffles never last more than a day in our house, and the same held true with these two samples that were sent to review.  By the end of day, both heart-shaped truffle boxes were empty, and all that was left were happy bellies, and a couple of wired girls (me included) :-)  But, what a blast we had sampling these tasty chocolate truffles.  And, when I finally tossed the boxes, I told my husband that he would have to buy boxes or bags of Lindt chocolate truffles come the holidays, for each of his three girls to enjoy. :-)


In addition to the above Lindor Chocolates I was sent from Lindt, the following products are available and would make great Valentine's Day gifts for that special someone (or even as a treat for yourself).
