Luxury Chocolate Lands in London

Interior of Lindt Chocolate Store London OntarioThere is nothing more decadent than a Lindt chocolate truffle slowly melting in your mouth. The hard shell breaking away to release the warm flowing centre to coat the tongue – pure heaven! I freely admit that I dip into this indulgence whenever occasion strikes. So when I learned that Lindt had opened a standalone location on Wellington Rd. near Exeter in London, Ontario, I wasn’t going to wait long to check it out.

Upon entering the store, the space feels like a jewel box with mirrored shelving, dark wood and crystal chandelier accents. The sign of the Swiss Master Chocolatiers since 1845 is prominently displayed in gold. However, the stars of this show shine even brighter. The individually wrapped coloured truffles are placed in easy to access bins and Lindt specialties line the walls.

My favourites so far are the chocolate coffee truffles, the white chocolate lime, the champagne truffles, and the gianduia (a chocolate square with chunks of hazelnuts). There is so much to choose from that I’ll have to make this store a regular stop.

Weekend Edition

Two cups of teaThere are few things more indulgent on a weekend morning then waking up to a breakfast tray and no plans to rush out of bed. These links will have me daydreaming in the morning sunshine.

  • If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to move to the U.K., Elle-Rose Williams gives some interesting insights to the realities of living in London….the good, the bad, and the ugly.
  • When I came across Marta Greber‘s website the name (www.WhatShouldIEatForBreakfastToday) made me smile , but her weekend recipe made my mouth water.
