Thanks to Aussie Dave for including a 100 gram of the Lindt Lindor White in the last parcel and in the most recent parcel.  He had scribbled a small note on the back that this was his favorite chocolate of all.    

Let me offer full disclosure before I begin this review.  I am not a white chocolate lover by upbringing.  Maybe because the white chocolates I grew up were the refuse of low quality chocolate manufacturers.  I am not a big lover of milk.  Never was.   And now that I'm an adult my tastes have moved up to higher and higher percentages of cocoa in my bar, many without any milk at all.  I had sampled Lindt's regular White Chocolate bar back in the United States.  I wasn't expecting much from Lindor White.   My girlfriend had her eye on this one soon after I opened up the parcel.  I would taste it, rate it, and hand the remainder to her.

How wrong I was.  Lindt's Lindor White remains the smoothest, creamiest, and most flavorful white chocolate bar I've ever tasted.  Lindt must have known their standard White Chocolate bar was punching only in the middle ranges and wanted something more elite out there to herald the Lindt name.   Their Lindor range (Lindor is a portmanteau of Lindt with the French word for gold, 'or') started out with their truffles, small chocolate balls with a chocolate shell stuffed with creamy fillings creamed up with a minimum of 20% milk solids.  The Lindor block's objective is to offer that creamy Lindor experience but in a standard block format.

My overall opinions of Lindt's products remain high.  It's a mainstream brand that's still able to achieve a high level of quality for the worldwide output they produce. If they're cutting corners, they're doing a superb job hiding the corners they're cutting.   The Lindor White sets the benchmark for what all white chocolatiers should aspire to.       

My poor girlfriend only got a few nibbles of this one.  I'll get her a Hershey Alpine White next time I'm at 7-11.
