Premium Swiss chocolate group Lindt & Sprungli has expanded its line of Excellence chocolates in the US with the introduction of bags of individually wrapped chocolate diamonds.

Excellence chocolate diamonds make “sharing a love of chocolate even easier”, Lindt suggested. They are available in the four most popular Excellence flavours – 70% cocoa, a touch of sea salt, intense orange and dark assortment.

The 4.9oz bags will be available at various retail outlets throughout the US, as well as Lindt’s own stores and online.

Danielle LaChance, VP of marketing, Lindt USA, commented: “We are excited to introduce Lindt Excellence in this new, shareable format, and continue to display a passion for exceptional quality, elegant flavours, and premium chocolate.”

Through a focus on innovation Lindt has successfully booked double-digit sales gains in the US for the first-half of the year. Click here to view the just-food interview with Lindt CEO Ernst Tanner to find out more about Lindt’s expansion drive in developed markets.
