Lindt offers up Lindor white chocolate from Switzerland. It's a Swiss bar and 100% Swiss chocolate. The chocolate republic talks all
about it with Doug at Doug's Republic

Lindt Lindor White

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.

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
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.
