We Tried Pumpkin Spice Lindor Truffles and Survived to Tell the Tale

Pumpkin spice season apparently begins in August now.

The end of summer has become synonymous with one ubiquitous seasonal change. No, we’re not talking about back to school or changing leaves; we mean pumpkin spice.

Pumpkin spice season is getting a head start this year with the very first quirky flavored product hitting shelves this summer: pumpkin spice Lindor truffles by Lindt.

We got to try these unique chocolates and weren’t too sold on them. The chocolate part of the truffle tastes like a normal Lindor truffle – smooth, creamy milk chocolate – but when you bite into the center, it’s like a Fruit Gusher had a baby with a pumpkin spice latte. The liquefied, gooey center tastes strongly of synthetic, spicy cinnamon and nutmeg flavor.

For those who are obsessed with everything pumpkin spiced, keep on riding that orange train: These chocolates may be a good product to add to your autumnal sweets collection, but they certainly won’t be at the top of the fall-themed grocery list this September.

You can buy them for $4.39 a package at Lindt stores, online, and in select grocery and discount stores starting next month.
