Chocolate is tempting, resistance is futile. Especially this time of year, when holiday treats are everywhere.

Go ahead and give in to three seasonal offerings from Swiss chocolatier Lindt, which has been making fine chocolates since 1845 ( www.lindt.com).

The Lindor package of assorted chocolate truffles includes milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, stracciatella (the shell is white chocolate with bits of cocoa), extra-dark chocolate and carmel ($7.99).

The Lindor milk-chocolate bag is full of milk chocolate truffles filled with a smooth milk-chocolate center ($3.99).

The gold foil-wrapped Lindt bear — looking like the golden bear that stands in front of the main gates at Cal Expo — is all milk chocolate ($3.99).
