Spring Approaches! Limited Edition Lindt Lindor Blueberries and Cream White Chocolate Truffles

I never encountered a Lindt Truffle I didn't enjoy. Even the flavors that aren't amazing are off-set by the smooth and melty consistency of that creamy truffle center. The Blueberries & Cream White Chocolate Truffles are a good case in point. The blueberry flavor tastes surprisingly natural -- actually, quite delicious. Unfortunately, the white chocolate shell is so very sweet, the subtle and mellow blueberry flavor is overshadowed. I wonder if the same blueberry truffle center encased in a dark chocolate shell might blend better. I'd love to try that. Nice try, Lindt, but for now I'll stick with your other fruit-infused truffle varieties.

Score (natural blueberry flavors): 4
Score (overshadowing the star): 2
Score (overall): 3

Update: Due to overzealous Winter heating at work, these truffles were left out in a hotter-than-usual room. With unexpected results. The centers completely liquefied, allowing the molten blueberry cream flavor to sing above the white chocolate shell. The consistency made all the difference. These are now fantastic. Hot Tip: Heat These Up!

New Score (molten blueberry chocolate): 5
