It is the question our Master Chocolatiers are asked the most. As soon as people bite into the hard outer shell of a Lindor truffle and discover the creamy melting filling hidden inside, they are longing to understand the magic. Discover the secret.
Essentially, Lindor is a chocolate truffle. Made by creating a hollow chocolate shell by placing fine, tempered Lindt chocolate into a mould which is then spun around on its axis to coat the inside. The chocolate cools and sets to create a delicate shell – ready to hold the smooth, melting filling.
The recipe for the Lindor filling is a closely guarded secret. It is a form of ganache which we carefully pour into the delicate shells before allowing it to set. Our secret Lindor filling boasts a low melting point which allows it to melt luxuriously on the tongue. It is this signature smooth melting finish that creates a truly blissful chocolate experience.
Once filled, cooled and set, Lindor is carefully wrapped in our signature packaging. This protects it from the environment and seals in the chocolate’s freshness in order to let the flavours shine. Did you know that we can wrap 1000 Lindors in one minute?
Lindor is a truly special chocolate that is close to many peoples' heart. Everyone has their own unique way of enjoying it. Some place Lindor in the fridge or the freezer to create a chilled 'snap' before letting it melt slowly in their mouth. Others do the opposite and gently warm up their Lindor so the melting begins before their first bite.
Our Master Chocolatier Thomas says: ‘The flavour of all our chocolate – including Lindor - shines when the chocolate is at room temperature. it melts delicately and provides a rich feel to the mouth. But, of course, you can enjoy Lindor (and all our chocolate) the way that makes you truly happy. Bon Appetit!'
