Story time!! While strolling through the aisles of the duty free shop at Bole International Airport, I came across a whole section dedicated to Lindt chocolates. I’m pretty sure you’d find a counter dedicated to Lindt at all major airports these days. I had to restrain myself from buying a kind of each variant to try. I ended up buying a bar of milk chocolate, one bar of dark chocolate, and a box of Lindt minis with 6 assorted flavours. Today, I’m going to review Lindt Swiss milk chocolate but I promise to review the rest as I go through them.
Did you know? In its early days, chocolate used to be bitter and had a hard texture. Rodolphe Lindt was the one who created the long conching process which gives chocolate the smooth and creamy texture as we know it today. You can read more about the history of chocolate here. Lindt is particularly one of my favourites since they established the Lindt & Sprüngli Farming Program which ensures usage of cocoa from sustainable sources.
The Lindt milk chocolate bar is just that, plain milk chocolate. Nothing could be purer. I got a 300g bar (Huge, I know!) for $13.50.
The packaging definitely looks and feels premium, with a glossy golden wrapper. The pack lists all the ingredients and nutritional information very clearly. Inside the thick wrapper, there is a thin silver foil that wraps the chocolate. The bar is divided into cubes in a 10X4 matrix.
Lindt milk chocolate has 31% minimum cocoa solids and a minimum of 21% milk solids. All Lindt chocolates seem to have a distinct, pleasing aroma which is the case with this one as well. The texture of the chocolate is absolutely creamy and smooth. It starts melting as soon as it is placed in the mouth. The chocolate is a bit on the sweeter side which is to be expected with milk chocolate. The taste lingers on the palate long after the treat is over.
Everything about the Lindt milk chocolate is perfect and we wouldn’t expect anything less from a company like Lindt. It has the perfect taste, aroma, texture and will leave you wanting more. The only thing that would have made this a better experience would have been a resealable pack, especially since very few people would be able to finish 300g of chocolate in one sitting. All in all, I haven’t tasted a better milk chocolate at the price and would definitely recommend it.
