Posted by Nicole Eckersley on 7th October 2010

Swiss chocolate maker Lindt & Sprungli is launching two chocolate bars under its Excellence brand in the US, having already released the products in the Australian market.

Excellence Roasted Almond combines dark chocolate with slivered almonds. Excellence Black Currant contains dark chocolate with black currants and roasted almond slivers.

“These new Excellence bars combine Lindt’s exquisite premium chocolate with the finest ingredients, providing chocolate lovers with two entirely new taste experiences,” said Ann Czaja, Lindt master chocolatier. “Roasted Almond is a sophisticated, premium twist on a more traditional combination of ingredients, and Black Currant incorporates a unique, fruit flavor into Lindt’s acclaimed dark chocolate.”
