Ordinarily, I wouldn’t be posting about a store opening, but this is different. When I found out that Lindt chocolate was opening a storefront, I was very excited. I grew up eating Lindt chocolates! Back then, Lindt was the epitome of gourmet chocolates and it was one of the special treats we got as children.
Since moving to the US, I’ve seen Lindt at Target, Sur La Table and a handful of other stores, but only a handful of the truffles and definitely nothing like the wall to wall display I was faced with when I entered the store (situated next to Neiman Marcus). WOW! This is a chocolate lover’s haven!
It was kind of early, but I couldn’t resist eating a truffle ball. So creamy and so decadent. I love them. Best part is, at the store, you can mix and match all the flavors including a white chocolate with key lime, the orange truffle, or just the regular dark — my fave!
From the European selection there is a chocolate filled with marzipan for those who love things like this. There is another with crunchy nougat.
I highly suggest getting any of the specialty chocolate bars like the dark chocolate with chili or wasabi.
The next time I’m going to a party, I’m bringing a box of the Creation Dessert — a selection of seven different chocolates including creme brulee, Caramel Eclair and Meringue.
There are a bunch of new collections never seen before such as the milkshake line… which presumably tastes very much like, well, drinking a milkshake!
Or how about the caramel line which comes in a bar or also, a small stick you can carry in your purse for when that craving hits!
Next time you see the Lindt Bunny Mobile driving around, wave! You might get a bunch of samples from whoever is handing them out that day!
Check out Lindt today! If you’re not able to get down there immediately, I have a selection of dark chocolate gift basket for one lucky winner to win. Tell me why you should win this incredibly delicious giveaway by leaving me a comment with your FULL name by Sunday, May 19th. Winner announced Monday! Good Luck!
