LINDT Chocolate Boutique, Sandton City

There is nothing better than having one of your closest friend contribute to your blog. Angelique (who most of you know as my baking buddy) has decided to write a few blogs a month. She is an extremely talented baker, lecturer and writter. So I was thrilled, when she approached me.  So now for Ange’s first post:

I hope you are as excited as I am about the new LINDT Chocolate Boutique that has recently opened in Sandton City. It is a first of its kind here in SA, as it offers a customised, immersive brand experience that is designed to take chocolate appreciation to a new level. I am a huge chocolate fan and especially enjoyed the LINDOR ball pick n mix section.

Details of the store

The new store gives us an intimate and luxurious glimpse into the world of LINDT and allows us, chocolate lovers, the opportunity to explore a wide selection of international flavours, as well as our well-known and loved favourites.

The look and feel of the store, is simple, clean and elegant. They drew on the warm brown and gold tones, that we are all familiar with and associate with LINDT. With the help of the Chocolate Advisors, in store – chocolate enthusiasts will be able to discover new and exciting flavour profiles based on their individual preferences and lifestyles.

What LINDT has to say about the store

“This is more than just a shop, but rather an invitation into the world of LINDT,” explains Nicolas Thoenen, CEO of Lindt & Sprüngli South Africa. “The LINDT Chocolate Boutique concept has already been a huge success internationally, and we are thrilled to finally be able to offer South African consumers a chance to experience it. Elements like the LINDOR Pick & Mix, which enables consumers to choose from an assortment of LINDOR Truffle flavours, have proven incredibly popular across all our global outlets, and we expect them to be equally well received by local audiences.”

My experience

My favourite part of the LINDT Chocolate Boutique is the LINDOR Pick & Mix. My husband, Nic and I sometime can’t agree on what flavour to get, that we both feel like. So, this is the perfect solution, as you can both get what you want and feel like! And I always feel like the coconut LINDOR balls! Also you can control how many you buy at once, because once you pop a LINDOR ball in your mouth…you just can’t stop till they are all gone!

      Hi Wania, I suggest that you contact them directly. I am an independent blogger, I don’t work for Lindt.
