The taste and quality of LINDT chocolate is loved by millions of people throughout the UK for a number of reasons – its fine ingredients, its unique smooth texture and the passion of Swiss expertise using age-old techniques. However it’s the dedication and creativity of the LINDT Master Chocolatiers who oversee the chocolate making process that make each piece of LINDT chocolate something special and to be savoured and enjoyed.

The LINDT chocolate making process begins with LINDT Master Chocolatiers selecting the finest cocoa beans from the best plantations around the world. Once roasted to release the chocolate flavour within, the beans are ready for conching, a revolutionary process created by Rodolphe Lindt in 1879 that gives LINDT chocolate its unique smooth melting texture.

The Master Chocolatier is famous for creating the iconic golden LINDT Gold Bunny and LINDT Bear, which have both become national favourites at Easter and Christmas, but the Master Chocolatier’s art can also be experienced in the UK year round with…

LINDOR is the smoothest creation from the LINDT Master Chocolatiers, with a lusciously smooth chocolate heart that starts to melt after breaking through the chocolate shell. Famous for the perfectly shaped LINDOR balls, LINDOR is equally enjoyable in its bar form.

The LINDT Excellence range blends the most aromatic cocoa beans with the finest ingredients, to create an exquisite and refined chocolate of intense flavour and elegant texture. With natural, high quality ingredients from all over the world, a perfect balance between smooth and bitter, adventurous and unique flavours, and a thin shape perfect for melting in the mouth, LINDT Excellence is the ideal way to enjoy an everyday treat.

The LINDT Creation range is the latest indulgent offering from the LINDT Master Chocolatiers. Crafted with LINDT’s customary passion and flair, each Creation bar encases the finest ingredients within LINDT’s trademark smooth chocolate, creating a masterpiece of heavenly indulgence with each bite. LINDT CREATION is available in four sumptuous flavours to discover and devour; Luscious Caramel, Divine Hazelnut, Velvety Vanilla Almond and Sumptuous Orange.

LINDT also has a wide range of delectable boxed gift selections available that give everyone the opportunity to indulge themselves and treat friends, no matter the occasion.
