lindt: petits desserts | crème brûlée

in the movie the fabulous destiny of amélie poulain, mr. dufayel encourages amélie to basically seize the day and go after the man she loves and a life she desires. a line that is permanently glued to my monitor, dufayel states, "voilà, ma petite amélie; vous n’avez pas des os en verre, vous pouvez vous cognez à la vie. si vous laissez passer cette chance, alors avec le temps, c’est votre coeur qui va devenir aussi sec et cassant que mon squelette. alors, allez y, nom d'un chien! " in other words, he basically says, "my sweet little amelie. you do not have bones made of glass and you can take life's knocks. if you let this chance pass you by, eventually, your heart will become dry and brittle like my skeleton. so, girl! go get him and don't waste time!"

lindt's petits desserts crème brûlée unintentionally pays tribute to the film. amelie's simple pleasure of taking a teaspoon and cracking her crème brûlée is brought to life with this bar. bits of caramel crack and pop in the mouth. i just wish the bar was not so sweet and perhaps made as a dark bar.
