The Lindt New York City Gift Collection, which is only available online and at the Lindt Chocolate shops on 5th Avenue in NYC, is no joke when it comes to flavor.
Personally hosting a small chocolate tasting party was a must in order to spread the love, chocolatey goodness, and calories. Along with four fabulous friends, we sat around and tried each of the chocolates while talking about what worked about the Lindt New York City Gift Collection and what didn’t.
Let’s start by discussing what the Lindt New York City Gift Collection consists of. First is the Create Your Own LINDOR Truffles New York 75-pc Gift Bag where you can mix and match three different flavors for $25. This option is best if you’re buying a hostess gift, bringing treats into the office, or you really want to impress your partner’s parents.
Next up is the Lindt New York City Swiss Luxury Boxed Chocolate which consists of 14 chocolates for $20. This option is best when you want to give a small gift to someone who deserves a dose of luxury (on a budget).
There’s also a New York Novelty Gift Box with dark, white, and milk chocolate for $12 and the New York LINDOR Gift Box for $22, the latter of which is customizable and features a window in the front where you can put a business card, gift card, or note card. Both options are great for businesses to give to special clients or to bring as a hostess gift.
Now let’s talk about the taste of certain varieties of Lindt chocolate.
All of us were in agreement about the milk chocolate option of Lindt chocolate. If you’re craving chocolate, this is the go-to out of the bunch. It offers just enough of a chocolate taste without being too heavy, which makes it the ideal gift for any chocolate fan. Out of all the flavors, this was the favorite.
When it comes to the peanut butter variety of Lindt, 3 out of 5 of us were big fans of it, but two said the peanut butter flavor was too heavy. However, if you’re a huge fan of peanut butter and chocolate together, chances are you’ll like this version.
As far as the dark chocolate option of Lindt chocolate, 3 of us said it was too overpowering while 2 said it was good but not great.
Here’s the strange thing about this the 60 percent extra dark Lindt chocolate. It tastes how the aforementioned dark chocolate should have tasted. If you love dark chocolate, then you’ll likely adore this variety.
As someone who isn’t really a fan of white chocolate, this option was fantastic. It’s really great white chocolate, and it’s something that’s definitely worth having.
Regarding the caramel variety of Lindt chocolate, we weren’t happy at all. All of us ladies usually love caramel mixed with chocolate, but we all agreed that this flavor was way too sweet.
The Lindt New York City Gift Collection is great whether you want to give someone the gift of chocolate or you just want to buy something sweet for yourself. They’re an especially good option if you’re going home for the holidays from NYC and want to bring a present back with you or you want to send an NYC-inspired gift to someone who is missing home.
