Lindt’s “A Touch of Sea Salt” Chocolate Bar

I always love getting a package from Lindt, whose chocolates are always a great treat!

This past week I was sent a bar of Lindt Excellence A Touch of Sea Salt. Though it’s not new, I haven’t seen this on shelves yet and I was instantly intrigued. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of chocolate and salt together, and it had never occurred to me that a chocolatier might actually combine just the two (without, say, peanut butter or something else with it).

The label says A Touch of Sea Salt is made dark chocolate, though at 47% it’s not too dark, and 3% Fleur de Sel, a premium French sea salt. When I tried the bar I let it sit in my mouth for just a minute and the salt doesn’t come through at first.

After melting just a bit the salt flavor is unmistakeable, but it’s not at all overpowering. It’s really an excellent combination, and I wanted more after the first square, which doesn’t happen terribly often after having some dark chocolate (a little goes a long way!).

My daughters loved it as well and we had to be careful not to devour the whole thing before my husband could try some too! Overall, this was a hit.

Have you tried Lindt’s A Touch of Sea Salt? What did you think?

    These bars have been available for a while here in Sweden, and I’m grateful for that! Absolutely delicious and probably my favorite. I was a bit taken aback by the idea at first, but can’t get enough of it now.

    I finally found this stuff, and it’s good. I wish the Lindt people would have added a tad more salt. Just a grain or three. =)

    Rococco chocolate has had Sea Salt chocolate, a milk chocolate version, available for several years now though it is difficult to find outside of London, England.
