Lindt is known around the world for the finest Swiss chocolates, but did you know that the founders of Lindt and Sprüngli were pioneers that actually revoloutionized chocolate? In 1879, chocolates were usually hard and bitter. But then, Rodolphe Lindt forgot to turn off the conching machine in his small confectionary in Zurich one Friday evening, and it ran and and stirred the chocolate all weekend. The result was a much creamier, melty and delicious chocolate. Lindt's discovery of the conching process made Swiss chocolates internationally famous and Lindt still stands for those high quality standards today. You can find a large variety of Lindt chocolate bars, pralines and more, and also plenty of seasonal chocolates for Christmas or Easter.
