Lindt Excellence Mild 70% Cocoa

Lindt Excellence Mild 70% Cocoa

Hello lovelies! As a lover of dark chocolate, I am so excited to introduce the Lindt Excellence Mild 70% Cocoa. I love indulging in dark chocolate, almost every day, I have a block or two of the Lindt Excellence Dark 70% with my cup of black coffee. But I know that many people don’t like the taste of bitter dark chocolate. Fortunately the Lindt Master Chocolatiers created a milder and smoother dark chocolate – they’ve created Lindt Excellence Mild 70% Cocoa. Its  perfect for your taste buds’ first introduction into high cocoa chocolates.

Lindt Excellence Mild 70% has an altogether different taste experience, whilst still maintaining the rich cocoa characteristics that have made its more intense counterpart, the Excellence 70%, a firm favourite across the globe. With a slightly lighter colour, the aroma of rounded and intricate cocoa flavours are complemented by the delectable, luxurious scent of vanilla.

Lindt Excellence Mild 70% Cocoa

The Mild 70% is created using a meticulous blend of the finest cocoa beans. The beans, along with the long conching, ensures the chocolate delivers a velvety and smooth texture, whilst releasing a mild bouquet of flavours with notes of cream, stone fruit and honey that is less intense than its 70% Cocoa counterpart.

This new Excellence flavour is the perfect alternative for those who would like to enter the dark chocolate market. Discover Excellence Mild 70% today and experience the lighter side of dark chocolate appreciation. Now available at all major retailers for a recommended RSP of R39.95.

What is conching?

Conching is a long process of intense mixing, stirring and aerating of heated liquid chocolate to give it its silky smooth texture and eliminate unwanted acidity and bitterness in the chocolate. Once cocoa beans have been roasted, grinded and refined to develop the base chocolate mass, this material goes into the conching process for many hours and sometimes even days. In 1879, Rodolphe Lindt invented the famous conching process, which has revolutionized the chocolate industry.

Where are the cocoa beans from?

The heart of Lindt chocolate is the finest cocoa. Knowing which of the many different origins of cocoa beans will best contribute to the distinctive Lindt taste is a skill that the Lindt Master Chocolatiers have perfected over time. They select the highest quality beans from the most renowned cocoa origins around the world: Ghana, Latin America and the Caribbean Islands (mainly Ecuador), Madagascar and Papua New Guinea. To develop the distinctive Lindt taste, Lindt chocolate also contains a high amount of cocoa flavour beans such as Criollo or Trinitario.

Once selected the Lindt Master Chocolatiers work with the local partners assuring that the farmers in the origin country properly ferment and dry the beans. This is essential to let the fine flavour develop to its full potential during the roasting process. The Lindt Master Chocolatiers blend the various beans from different origins to ensure they achieve the distinctive flavour profile specific for their chocolate creations.

    I’m in love with a vegan, and it’s the only chocolate they would eat. And sharing chocolate is truly one of life’s pleasures, especially when the chocolate is dark.

    I love the variety they present and the simultaneous subtlety and intensity of flavour and texture.

    Their chocolate is the real deal.. none of the usual additives – so it’s not overly sweet, has no weird aftertaste and there are so many amazing flavours to choose from. Best of all is the option for delicious ‘after dinner’ treat – the 70%!! It’s my secret nibble. My Instagram : Toni Stohen and twitter : juschatsgain

  13. Flow Phayane says:

    hun, the only way to indulge without much guilt is eating dark chocolate! Lidnt’s smoother version is obviously the better version…to dzzie for! I didnt know about conching, thanks for that <3

  14. Diana lewis says:

    Up until the beginning of the year I had given up chocolate for about 4 years for a personal reasons and just felt it got in the way of my better eating habits.
    Then I stated to eat lchf and they included the occasional dark chocolate and that’s when it all began!
    So if I do eat chocolate it’s got to be Lindt!
    Although I only eat the 70% and up my husband enjoys all the other flavors with a good flat white coffee!

  25. Hi ! @TheAuthenticGirl,
    Well, I hold chocolate very close to my heart! You simply cannot say “Lindt Master Chocolatiers” without saying it in that famous French accent. Lindt has always been my personal favorite with all their various ranges of chocolates. I love the way it instantly has the “melt in your mouth” feeling as soon I slip myself a piece. My family and friends know how much I love Lindt, which is why I am always keen for the neatly wrapped Lindt prezzies during birthdays and other celebrations. I love that they’ve widened their dark chocolate range since dark chocolate IS healthier. So basically I Love Lindt because not only do they aim to satisfy a true chocolate lovers sweet tooth but they also make their chocolate a healthy choice for us.
    Much Love,
