Lidl’s J.D Gross Raspberry Dark Chocolate Review

Lidl’s J.D Gross Raspberry Dark Chocolate Review cost £1.59 and contains 70% dark chocolate and the chocolate was so decadent and addictive!

The chocolate is very delicate and has a creamy smooth texture when it melts in your mouth when you bite into it. Despite the bitterness of dark chocolate- I cannot taste it in this chocolate at all, which is unfortunate as I enjoy the bitterness. However, it was still a great experience.

The bitterness is still slightly noticeable when you warm up the chocolate, giving it more depth than when it’s chilled. The cocoa flavour is also very defined, and the raspberry helps to add a more complex profile as it is not overpowering but gives zest.

When chilled, it is pretty crunchy, and this texture feels excellent to crush in your mouth as the raspberry flavour pops out more when cold. The raspberry parts inside of the chocolate are pretty jelly-like and have a sharp yet zesty flavour when you chew them.

I added this to the Vemondo Blueberry Soya Yoghurt, which turned it into a delightful experience that I would recommend you to try! The yoghurt’s velvety smooth and decadent creaminess complements the rich chocolate flavour and turns it into a very complex yoghurt. The fruitiness from the blueberry yoghurt, along with the raspberry inside of the chocolate, create an intricate mix, simply making it burst with joy when you have them together!

You can either grate or grind the chocolate into the yoghurt or do as I did for crunchiness and cut them into pieces.

I give this product five stars- despite my initial complaints, the complexity, richness and robust flavours work well when mixed with lighter things like yoghurt.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
