Lindt Chocolateria

A piece of Lindt's Excellence 70% cocoa, was offered to us the moment we walked in

When I saw this mini event posted on Lindt's Facebook page, there was no way I was going to not attend, especially since I was already going to be in the area.

The machine that gives the chocolate it's ultra smooth texture. Obviously this one was a mini!

Step by step on how a Almande de Lux praline is made

What it is: Almond praline, crispy amaretti pieces adorned with a single roasted almond

Making of Lindt's beloved Lindor milk chocolate truffles
The "soft melting center" that makes Lindor delicious!

Hollow milk chocolate shells skilfully being filled

What a fun little tool!

Made and served - it was pretty darn awesome

Display 3 - too bad there wasn't some kind of giveaway, this would have been one hell of a prize!

Excellence sampling station

Offering 6 flavours

This was the chili flavour. We were told to let it melt on the tongue to get the full effect of the heat!

Swiss Luxury Selection, open for sampling. I chose the Créme aux Noisettes- caramelized hazelnuts and smooth praline, so good.

Smart car made to look like a gold Lindt bunny!

It's probably filled with chocolates too. (!!!)

My friend Karen and I had a great time. Thanks Lindt! I mean, how could we not? We were surrounded by chocolate and were showered with as much of it as we wanted! I was glad to be able to sample some of the flavoured chocolates from the Excellence line that I probably would have never purchased. The chili flavoured one was one of my favourites, as it packed a nice punch of heat. I wish I had tried all 6 of what was available but by the end of it, I was just craving for a hot cup of tea. My taste buds were on a sugar overload and were about to die. Before we left, we were given free access to a basket of Lindor milk truffles! Whoo-hoo! I was surprised that it was busy or crowded. Perhaps it was because of the rain, but clearly that did not stop us!
