QUICK REVIEW: Lindt Limited Edition Snickerdoodle White Chocolate Truffles

Lindt Limited Edition Snickerdoodle White Chocolate Truffles

What are Lindt Snickerdoodle White Chocolate Truffles?

In search of a seasonal treat that didn’t involve pumpkin, spices, peppermint, or any of the usual suspects, I came across Lindt’s Snickerdoodle White Chocolate Truffles. After years of spiced lattes and eggnog mochas, I’m ready for something different.

These truffles have a snickerdoodle-flavored white chocolate ganache center surrounded by a white chocolate shell with cookie inclusions.

How are they?

Clearly, these won’t appeal to the white-chocolate-isn’t-really-chocolate-and-shouldn’t-exist crowd, but those grinches would probably object to snickerdoodle being called a seasonal flavor in the first place.

Both the shell and center have a flavor reminiscent of speculoos cookies, which are like fancy European snickerdoodles made with brown sugar and spices. The cookie pieces remain crispy and add a bit of crunch, something I usually don’t care for in my chocolate. In this case, it brought to mind the eponymous cookie, so I didn’t mind.

Is there anything else you need to know?

Pro Tip: Maximize your enjoyment of these truffles by not munching down on them like they’re M&Ms. Pop one in and let your body heat melt the outer shell. By the time that happens, the ganache center will also have begun to melt, and then burst out in a flavor avalanche. Yes, I’ve put too much thought into this, but I’m serious about my chocolate.

Conclusion:

These truffles don’t taste like grandma’s snickerdoodles, which might disappoint some. Personally, I’ll take the deeper, more complex flavor of a speculoos over an ordinary snickerdoodle anytime. (Sorry, Grandma.)

  1. Are these a Target exclusive? Haven’t seen these around my grocery stores, though maybe they’re just slow (they still have Pumpkin Spice which probably came out months ago).

    As someone who prefers Snickerdoodles to white chocolate, I’m glad it sounds like the snickerdoodle wasn’t overwhelmed (the Speculoos comparison makes me want to try them even more).

      1. Thank you for the reply on it being only at Target.

        Perhaps I just got a different batch than Mike, but I didn’t think there was enough Snickerdoodle, even based on reasonable expectations and not my desire for a melty snickerdoodle cookie. I tried letting the whole thing dissolve in my mouth as suggested and trying to take bites of just the shell and the center. The shell looked and tasted at least somewhat Snickerdoodle-y, but I would have guessed the core was pure white chocolate rather than my understanding of the review description (I didn’t taste much Snickerdoodle, and the cookie inclusions on mine and the packaging looked to me in the shell rather than the center).

        The white chocolate is still very good but not as much Snickerdoodle as the packaging (or speculoos, as the review) suggested to me. I’m not too familiar with Lindt, so that might just be how they are (e.g. I would have put more peppermint/cookie in that flavor, too).
