Lindt are probably better known for their novelty chocolates, the Lindt Gold Bunny at Easter and the gold animals at Christmas, and Lindt Lindor chocolate truffles. Most of those are milk chocolate, yet Lindt make a huge range of other chocolates including white and dark chocolate, and a wide variety of flavoured chocolates, including their chocolate bars.
The Lindt Easter egg range was rather limited to milk chocolate until a few years ago, they expanded their range and now they have a wonderful selection of chocolate Easter eggs in milk, dark and now white chocolate in a variety of sizes.
The Lindt EXCELLENCE egg was first introduced in 2014, which was so popular there is a new Lindt EXCELLENCE egg alongside last years. Also new for 2015 are two new Lindt Lindor eggs and mini eggs.
Lindt EXCELLENCE Easter Eggs
There are now two Lindt EXCELLENCE Easter Eggs, both luxury Easter eggs are made from 70% cocoa dark chocolate with either mini eggs or chocolate bars.

The new egg for 2015 is the Lindt EXCELLENCE Mini Bars Easter Egg, similar to the mini eggs egg, but with three mini Lindt EXCELLENCE dark chocolate bars; a plain 70% cocoa bar, a dark chocolate bar flavoured with orange and one with mint.
