May is National Strawberry Month!

Strawberries and chocolate are a classic combination. The fresh, clean nature of strawberries marries perfectly with the complex richness of the chocolate.  This marriage creates a palate pairing that is both luscious and satisfying. However, it wasn’t until the 1960’s when “chocolate-covered strawberries” were created by Lorraine Lorusso, that the combination truly took off and became a culinary staple in the dessert industry.

This month, we’re celebrating strawberries with our variety of Lindt Chocolate strawberry delights including:
