I just wanted to share this information I received today from LINDT via email in reards to using Alcohol in there chocolates:
Dear,

Thank you for your email.

All Lindt chocolate products containing alcohol or alcoholic liqueurs as an ingredient do have these ingredients clearly disclosed in the list of ingredients printed on the wrapper/packaging.

Lindt & Sprüngli Switzerland use a few flavourings with alcohol as carrier and these are used in fillings of bars and chocolates (pralines). Taken into account that flavourings are used in small quantities in our recipes, the amount of alcohol introduced into the product via the carrier is very small (below 0.1%).

Our solid and plain chocolates (white, milk and dark, without fillings) do not contain any alcohol. "Flavors" in the ingredient list of those solid chocolates stands for Vanilla/Vanillin which does not contain alcohol.

We hope that this information is of help to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further enquires.


Yours sincerely,

Anitha Haridas
