    Lindor dark chocolate truffles are one of my favorite things. They could almost make my list of diet kryptonite foods, but when I have them (not that often), I get a couple of singles next to the register. Good thing I am a cheapskate.

    You're freaking out about 77 calories? I could eat a whole bag of the sea salt or mint ones in one sitting. :D

    The dark chocolate ones with mint centers! Ooooh, yeah! All things in moderation, to reiterate @TeaBea.

    Gah, yes! They are so good! I try to take little tiny bites and let them melt away so I don't just unwrap them all and shove my face into the pile of em.

    I have a friend who is a manager at a Lindt store nearby. Luckily I don't have a mind to exploit the relationship.

    Do you have a mind to let someone else exploit the relationship?

    I think the OP thinks that one little piece of chocolate made her sluggish. I call shenanigans on that and think, if she really did feel sluggish, it's something other than a teeny tiny 77 calorie ball of chocolate.

    Ha - well, I think freaking out about 77 calories and saying it made you "sluggish" is a bit extreme, BUT I will admit that I had a similar reaction to finding out the calories in these. Basically, someone was passing them out at work and I was in the mood for a sweet treat so I ate two, assuming they were 30-40 calories each, and then finding out they were closer to 80 was pretty disheartening.

    Idk why I assumed they'd be like a hershey kiss! Sometimes you just can't have nice things..

    I’m just happy that I discovered they have gluten in them (barley malt sweetened). Phew!

    My low carb butt loves these. My husband recently bought me an edible arrangement full of these and the ghirardelli caramel squares. It lasted two days lol

    I just crushed a poor soul yesterday that was eating one of their candy bars - "It's only 240 calories" Uh-huh, "Check the servings per container". It was 3...

    I have zero restraint with candy and chocolate. I just get the family to stash it away so I don't have to resist it everytime I walk into the kitchen.

    I love the Lindt chili bars but often end up buying one, eating a serving, then leaving it in the lunch room at work for the vultures to devour, because I would have zero trouble mowing through the whole bar, and I'm shrimpy enough that my daily goal can't often afford like 500 calories worth of chocolate if I wish to also get some actual nutrition. So good though.

    Mmmm I loooove those little calorie bombs. >:)

    ME too. Give up chocolate forever? No way! All things in moderation.

    you don't have to give up chocolate you just have to get dark chocolate 100% coca and if you don't like it like that melt it and add some stevia with stuff like peppermint oil, cinnamon, ect. the vast majority of the chocolates in the stores either have a lot of sugar or sugar like substitutes that might give you a big spike of your insulin and your blood sugar. If you have to problem test drinking a tsp of apple cider vinegar and see what happens. store bought chocolate isn't as good as home made in my personal thought.

    Don't get too excited, it's a hollow plastic ball filled with normal sized ones.
