Lidl's Fin Carre White Chocolate, Coconut & Cornflakes Bar Review

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post. I went to Lidl recently and saw a Chocolate Bar that sounded intriguing so I thought that I would talk to you all about it today. 

I couldn't find a description online. The product is a White Chocolate bar that contains pieces of Dessicated Coconut and Cornflake pieces. 

A tall rectangular white chocolate bar studded with white coconut and brown bits of cornflake in a silver metallic wrapper and a blue tall rectangular cardboard wrapper with fin carer in a red diamond with white font and white chocolate, coconut and cornflakes in white font on a bright background

The texture of this product is amazing. When I popped a couple of pieces into my mouth, the smoothness of the creamy White Chocolate coated my tongue like a blanket. After the blanket of pale Chocolate coated my mouth, a flood of Dessicated Coconut flew onto my tastebuds making me figure out which bits were melted Chocolate and which bits were Coconut. I love Coconut as a textural ingredient in food products as it gives a little body to the product. I think it's why I love Bounty's so much. I had forgot that this bar contained Cornflake pieces when I tried some so I was surprised to then have an explosion of texture burst on my palette via the Cornflakes. It added another dimension to the bar, as the Coconut added more of a chew, whereas the Cornflake pieces added a cheerful crunch to the bar. 

The taste of this product was very interesting. I'm not the biggest fan of White Chocolate. I just kind of think its a bit too rich and sickly for me. However, when I tried a piece of this product, the White Chocolate was rich and creamy but had a slight kick of Vanilla to it which cut through the taste of the Chocolate. After a few minutes, a flavour wave of Coconut flooded my tastebuds. I love Coconut so I was pleased that this was the next stop on the flavour train. I love Coconut in anything and it made me feel like I was laying on a beach somewhere forgetting all of the things that are going on at the moment. The final stop on the taste train was the Cornflakes. Sadly, these were more for texture than taste, but they still added a touch of slight savouriness to the product which I always love as I am a big fan of sweet and salty food. 

Would I buy this again? It is rare that I buy White Chocolate based products again, but I would buy this again and again. If you're not the biggest fan of White Chocolate then I urge you to try this as I think that it will win you over. I think that this would be great to enjoy on a night in whilst watching something. I think that it would also be great enjoyed with a drink when you need a bit of a pick me up. 

Have you tried this product? Is there any great products that I should try from Lidl? Let me know down below!

  1. This post has reignited the desperation for this chocolate. Is it now obsolete? I need it back in my life.
