People Are Absolutely Raging With The New Lindt Sharing Tins
Earlier this month we brought you the exciting news that Lindt had launched its brand new assorted tin of the chocolate truffles just in time for Christmas - but unfortunately customers have been a little underwhelmed upon opening the box.
While the chocolatiers did note there would be 32 chocolates in the tin in their promo, it turns out this is actually far less than it sounds IRL.
In fact, one customer has posted about her dismay at opening her £10 tin (a promotional offer which will be hiking to £15 soon), to find a "pathetic and disgusting" amount of chocolates.
Posted on Facebook Group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group, the poster wrote: "For all those who were brimming with excitement at the new Lindt chocolate tins, THIS is the pathetic and disgusting amount of chocolates actually in them...
"Bought this today from Tesco, opened with pure delight and then sat back in complete disbelief... £10 they are charging for the amount of chocolates that would fill one of their boxes....
She then added: "Oh and apparently so it's been pointed out by a few people on here in the media adverts it states you only get 32 chocolates in the tin....NO I hadn't seen this (obviously)."

The Lindor assorted tins hold 32 individually wrapped chocolates in six delicious flavours - classic milk, white or extra dark as well as milk and white, hazelnut and the brand new salted caramel - and are available at Tesco, Sainsbury's, online and in Lindt retail stores.
Other shoppers worked out that if you buy two standard boxes of the chocolates for just £2 more, you end up with an extra 22 truffles in the tin.
Lindt told Tyla: "We are sorry to hear consumers are disappointed with the LINDOR Christmas tin, and this is something we take very seriously.
"Each of our LINDOR Christmas tins contains an average 32 individually wrapped truffles, double the amount contained within our bestselling 200g box of LINDOR truffles. We have packaged it in a presentation tin to make it perfect for sharing this Christmas and hopefully to use for many years to follow.
"We are of course taking all feedback on board and are working with our teams to ensure our consumers are fully happy with every LINDOR product they enjoy this Christmas."
