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:
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.
