Lindt HELLO Pretzel Bites

Lindt Hello Pretzel BitesThe last of the three new Lindt HELLO Bites collection that I picked up for review is the blue-themed HELLO Pretzel Bites.

The concept is truly simple, a small, spherical pretzel is coated in milk chocolate. (The image on the front shows pretzel twists, but they’re not pieces of pretzels, they’re actual full spheres.)They’re very similar to the Toffee Bites, not that innovative, this product is definitely an American take on a standard confection.

The cheeky text on the front of the package reads: HELLO, I’m a handful [of] Pretzel Bites. You be the sweet, I’ll be the salty. (Nice to Sweet You)

Lindt Hello Pretzel Bites

Like the Toffee Bites and the Minty Bites, the chocolate here is excellent. Though it’s very sweet, it’s immediately creamy and smooth with a strong hint of cocoa. The salty pretzel center is crispy and light with enough crunch to offset the sweetness of the coating.

Still ... I wish they were dark chocolate. Or maybe a mix of the two would be fun.

Like Minty Bites and Toffee Bites, these are made in the USA. They’re on the expensive side for chocolate covered pretzels, and I don’t see myself buying them often, but of the three versions, this was my favorite and the one that I finished first.

  1. We had a Lindt store at one of the most popular malls in metro Atlanta, where I used to go buy all things Lindt.  Last year, they closed the store, which really bummed me out.  I used their solid white chocolate bars to make white chocolate cream cheese buttercream (for my red velvet cakes), as well as my white chocolate cheesecakes.  Their white chocolate/coconut bars were excellent to dip strawberries into as well. No other white chocolate was as good for melting, baking, and dipping as Lindt.

    Now that we recently moved to the Salt Lake City area, I’m on the hunt for another Lindt store.

  2. The chocolate was fine but I have to say the pretzel was not okay. It tasted like Pringles chips to me and did not mingle well with the chocolate.
