Lindt & Sprungli has launched a range of "decadent" filled chocolate bars in the UK.

The Creation bars are available in four flavours: Divine Hazelnut, Velvety Vanilla Almond, Sumptuous Dark Orange and Luscious Caramel.

Lindt said it hoped the bars would "take advantage of the continued success" of its bars. It cited Nielsen data for the week ending 16 June that said Lindt was the fastest growing chocolate brand in the market, with sales up 12.5% year-on-year.

Last month, the Swiss chocolate manufacturer booked higher first-half sales and profits. CEO Ernst Tanner said Lindt would look to "build market share" through "new and innovative products in mature markets".
