Lindt Chocolate Lindor Truffles {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Susie!}

I'm a sucker for chocolate all year long but when the holidays rolls around, it just doesn't seem right to let the season pass without enjoying something a little extra special. It's just tradition, you know?

This year my husband picked up advent calendars with small chocolate pieces behind each door for our daughters... but they were cheap and even I thought they didn't taste very good (I'm not sure if I've ever turned down chocolate before).

Instead, on the opposite end of the spectrum, I turned to the brand of chocolate that is in a category all its own when it comes to being delicious and luscious: Lindt. Because even though there are other chocolates out there, I'm not sure any of them are nearly as satisfying or really compare to biting into a Lindor Truffle.

First created by Lindt Master Swiss Chocolatiers in 1949, the original Lindor milk chocolates started out in bar form and transitioned into Truffles in 1967. Originally a Christmas tree decoration for the holiday season, Lindt used their incredible chocolate recipe to create a smooth-melting filling surrounded by a delicious chocolate shell.

Thanks to the positive responses and popularity of these new chocolates, Lindt began producing the milk chocolate Truffles year-round to keep up with overwhelming demand and are now available in more than ten different flavors. Opening up the Lindor Truffles Ultimate 19 oz Bag, my mouth immediately began watering at the collection of 45 Milk, Dark, White, 60% Extra Dark and Peanut Butter Chocolate Truffles inside.

With their hard outer layer and creamy smooth center, each bite is almost like a surprise burst as it melts in your mouth in deliciousness. There is no doubt that these are gourmet chocolates at their finest! Whether this bag is for you or as a gift, they will surely be a big hit... and the only thing your recipient will complain about is trying to not eat too many in one sitting.

But, wait! Not only does Lindt want to make your chocolate dreams come true, they want to make all of your dreams come true with their What's at the Center of your Dreams? giveaway!

Through February 15, 2011, Lindt is giving away a total of $75,000 in cash plus a variety of premium chocolate and sweet, indulgent prizes to help make dreams come true across the country. And all you have to do to enter is eat chocolate!

Thirteen "dream" truffles have been hidden inside specially marked packages of Lindor Truffles and the lucky people who find them will each receive a $5,000 prize to put towards fulfilling their dreams. In addition, chocolate lovers can enter at Lindt.com, where two additional $5,000 prizes will be handed out as well as daily prizes including a lifetime supply of premium Lindt chocolate, $100 Lindt gift cards, $50 Spa Week gift cards, $25 prepaid bank cards and more.

So what are you waiting for? This holiday season and New Year, don't show up empty-handed at your next social occasion, head to your nearest Lindt retail location and become the hit of the party when you arrive with a bag of Lindor Truffles! Or now is a great time to order online, as you can purchase two 19 oz bags for $25 (they are usually $15 each).

And, thanks to the generosity of Lindt, one person will have a deliciously great way to celebrate 2011, because...

One lucky person will win a Lindor Truffles Ultimate 19 oz Bag
from Lindt!

The dream I have right now is to be able to heal properly after a few surgeries this past summer.
I also have a dream to know how to knit better than I do.
Another is to be able to find a job to my ability.
