     I haven't been checking in at ChefTalk as much these last few days.  The kids are off from school, it's the holiday season and there is plenty to do.  We've had a little snow in the Chicago area and have to take advantage of it when we can.



   From my family to yours...Happy Holidays to all!

Hi Dan, very impressive Snowman! I took my little one to the snow last week and he made his first one - well, I made it while he was watching, and then he put in the eyes, nose and arms.... /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif but it was nowhere as big as this!!! Nice.

Merry Xmas to you and your family, and to everyone on this forum!

    Hiya Petals...hope all is well. 

  Have you seen that Lindt (unfortunately) reformulated their 70% Excellence bar?
Why is there a new recipe for the Excellence 70% Cocoa bar?

We revised the Excellence 70% Cocoa recipe based on consumer research results that show the new recipe is preferred due to the smoother, less bitter taste. We received overwhelmingly positive consumer feedback about this new recipe and taste. The new recipe is intended to balance a smooth dark chocolate flavor with a rich and creamy texture. The new Excellence 70% Cocoa bar is available at Lindt Chocolate Shops, LindtUSA.com, and retailers nationwide.
We've stopped producing bars with the previous 70% Cocoa recipe. However, if you liked the intense cocoa flavor found in the previous recipe, we recommend you try the Excellence 85% Cocoa or Excellence 90% Cocoa. If you have any further questions, please contact our Customer Care department.
       I haven't tried the new bar yet, I've been on a Sharffen Berger kick, but I've heard a number of people are disappointed in it...Lindt even added soya lecithin to a couple of their other bars featuring the "new recipe" label.  Some of their bars are still unchanged though, so it's not all bad news!

   Happy Boxing day!
