This may come as a shock, but I must confess... I have never been to a Lindt Outlet store.
That is until friday night... when perusing my emails, I noticed that they were open until midnight - with some mad sale going on. Well... guess where I dashed off to... with son in tow, (completely against his will I'm sure you're thinking)
Upon entering, it was sensory overload.
I know, silly thing to say - what else would you expect in a chocolate store?
calling my name....
I even had a sample of a champagne Lindor
Actually my son had one first.
He came up to me with a big grin and said
"I just had a champagne Lindt."
no kidding... as I caught a whiff of it
I asked the staff if they knew they had just served a minor.
They handed me one too, and all was forgotten
I was in a delirious daze of pure goodness.
Everything was 50% off.
Some chocolate may have followed me home
to a safe hiding spot.
Friday night was round one
Hot cocoa competition
I tried to find a good rating system.. with not much success.
I did find a most amusing quote on one site called
"We taste the chocolate so you don't have to!"
Ok, so I came up with my own rating scores.
Max score in each category is a 10
Cocoa Intensity: 10
Suitable Substitute for *** : 10
I was going to take a photo of the actual cup of this hot delicious splendor,
but it seems to have caused me to lapse
into a state of pure utter chocolaty bliss.
And then there were 3.
*** yes, it's what you think it stands for ;)
