Cool Lindt Excellence - 95% Chocolate

Back in 2008 I posted about Lindt's 99% Chocolate. You can read that post here if interested.

Lindt recently came out with a new product here in Canada. Not sure if its out in the U.S. .. From writing to Lindt I know that Canadian Lindt products are imported from France but Lindt USA makes it stateside.

Anyways .. the 99% was chalky .. it had "Reduced Fat Cocoa Butter", brown sugar and soy lecithin.

NO SOY LECITHIN IN THE 95%!!!!

The 95% is actually *LESS* carbs than the 99% .. and it has the full fat cocoa butter. In fact .. its the second ingredient in the ingredient list which I have never really seen in chocolate before .. means this is REALLY high quality chocolate.

If you are in Canada like me - you can pick these up a London Drugs:

They had them on sale last night so I picked up two bars for everyone in my family .. it was very well received

I picked up a Lindt 99% in the grocery store the other day and put it back on the shelf after I read the ingredients and carbs per serving. You're right, and I typically search for a dark chocolate bar preferably with no sugar and very few carbs from the cacao. I'm not having success finding one, and I will not consider Lindt any longer unless I can find the 95% bar produced in France. I like good-quality chocolate with little to no sugar. I'll continue my search.

Unlike the 99% - this does appear to be the exact same product in the US. Its interesting that its says "cocoa powder processed with alkali" ... again - its probably exactly the same as ours - but there are different food labelling requirements / regulations.

Alkalizing the cocoa powder ... "Dutch Process" vs natural: https://food52.com/blog/9470-dutch-...hen-to-use-them

i see what you are saying.

ingredients

INGREDIENTS: Chocolate, cocoa butter,
cocoa powder processed with alkali, sugar.

the darker color of lindt and other chocolate bars surely leans toward the dutch process...

What's the Difference Between Dutch Process and Natural Cocoa Powder?

that's why i like hershey's unsweetened 100% Hot Cocoa powder that i add to my kefir:

100 percent cacao, non alkalized and unsweetened

even the color shouts natural vice dutched.

Can someone check my carb count math? I like to know how many net carbs in one square.

In the picture link at the bottom, on the left, is my usual 85% Lindt dark chocolate. On the right, is the new 95% that I just got from Lindt USA (huge box for 3 bars - with at least half a dozen propack refrigerant gel packs and the bars were still cold in 100F / 37.7C plus temps).

85% - 9g net per serving (4 squares) = 2.25g net per square

95% - 3g net per serving (4 pieces ) = 0.75g net per square


^ Did I get that right?

Since the 95 percent is so sugarless lol, I started eating one half a square of 85 percent and half of a 95 percent and it tastes much better. 1 square each total - three grams for the two squares. I'm good.

Found some Lindt 90 percent dark chocolate at the Commissary. They don't have 95 percent yet.

So...

85% - 9g net per serving (4 squares) = 2.25g net per square

90% - 4g net per serving (3 squares) = 1.30g net per square

95% - 3g net per serving (4 pieces ) = 0.75g net per square
