Lindt Chocolate Factory – Valentine’s Day on a Budget (pics + prices)

Found myself at Lindt Chocolate factory a couple of weeks ago when I was accompanying some dining companions on their bi-monthly stock-up on Lindt chocolates. Though I am not a fan of these chocolates (especially once I was introduced to Italian truffles a couple of years back, and recently restocked on some Slitti brand chocolates that should last me a few months), I found the prices at the factory to be excellent. At the time of my last visit, they were clearing out some holiday-themed chocolates at 70% off. For instance, they were selling chocolate reindeers (the typical Lindor bunnies during Easter, but with antlers instead of bunny ears) for about $1.62 an animal.

Some other loose chocolates were also being sold in bulk at 50% off. They were $1.99 per 100g: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bokchoi-...

Lindor truffle mini balls 75% off ($2.20): http://www.flickr.com/photos/bokchoi-...

A praline box of chocolates in a pretty gift box were about $10 (75% off): http://www.flickr.com/photos/bokchoi-...

Perfect for wedding favours, they also provide truffles and tiny gift boxes to be wrapped up for guests. Priced at $8.99 for 100g: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bokchoi-...

Ghirardelli’s were also present at 75% off: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bokchoi-...

As were the single origin and flavoured chocolate bars: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bokchoi-...

And finally, for the couples out there, they had chocolate long-stemmed roses and Valentine’s day themed confections: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bokchoi-...

Roses were $6.99 a stem: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bokchoi-...

Cheers and Happy Eating (and Valentine’s Day too)!!

  1. No need for west GTA hounds to feel left out, either. There's a Lindt outlet on Kennedy Road(west side) just south of the 407 in Mississauga, too.

      I was at the Kennedy Rd. Lindt outlet last Saturday and they had some good deals for Valentine's Day (plus leftovers from Christmas). I was going to buy couverture but ended up buying assorted chocolates for the $1.99/100g (bought about $6.00 worth and it's all gone - haha - I kind of liked the Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark mini-bars and the Champagne truffles) and a 168g box of the Lindor Dark Chocolate Mint truffles for $2.62. Sometimes I just crave Lindt chocolates and love to get my fix there.

    2. Thank you for this post, BokChoi! I'll definately check it out. I like Lindt chocolate. Do they have Excellence bars with Sea Salt? I've been looking for those for quite some time.

          Sorry Julia_K. I didn't notice if they carried it. I don't have a phone # for them either, otherwise you could potentially call them up. Hope you enjoy the treats!

            Thank you, BokChoi. If I go there, I'll report back.

        3. Oh. My.

            You're welcome sugarcube. Unfortunately, I did not make note of their opening hours. Nor their contact info to find out further information - just their address. Good luck in the search for good sweets!

            1. re: BokChoi

              Well I gather I'll be safe if I go in the afternoon.
