Lindt introduces Pumpkin Spice truffles, because fall is the best

The world needs more pumpkin spice, and Lindt is answering the call. The company has introduced a new limited edition flavor for chocolate lovers to enjoy this fall, packed with Pumpkin Spice perfection. To celebrate the new truffles, Lindt is partnering with creative studio Wells & Grace to share tips on how to make the most of fall, and also collaborating with Lark Hotels in New England to offer an exclusive LINDOR welcome service.

LINDOR Pumpkin Spice truffles join the iconic LINDOR collection as the newest seasonal innovation, featuring a milk chocolate shell with decadent pumpkin spice filling. The new truffle signifies the first pumpkin-inspired flavor launch from Lindt.

“We’re thrilled to have perfected a premium chocolate recipe that will delight the palettes of both pumpkin spice and chocolate lovers,” said Lindt Master Chocolatier Ann Czaja. “The new LINDOR Pumpkin Spice truffle combines our distinctly smooth milk chocolate with a gourmet pumpkin spice filling for a delicious taste of the fall season.”

To bring to life quintessential fall moments, Lindt partnered with New England-based stylist Lauren Wells and photographer Cambria Grace, the duo behind the creative studio Wells & Grace, to curate must-have fall recommendations, some of which can be found below. They’ve also captured picture perfect fall moments in a photo series of truly Instagram-worthy classic fall activities. Look for the images on @Lindt_Chocolate on Instagram later this season.

Wells & Grace also shared some ideas for fall saying, “Fall picnics don’t have to be basic. Have fun dreaming up a menu concept highlighting the traditional flavors of fall for an extra-special afternoon spent outside. We recommend packing pumpkin ales from a craft brewery and soft, creamy cheeses, which both pair especially well with smooth melting LINDOR Pumpkin Spice truffles. Also, we love mixing hot cider donuts with ice-cold apple cider for a balanced taste of the season.”

The company went on to say, “Who says Friendsgiving should only happen once a year? Invite your closest friends over for an intimate feast filled with food, laughter and warmth. The fall months of September and October provide plenty of inspiration for d├ęcor such as adorning the table with gourds and leaves. Be sure to place a LINDOR Pumpkin Spice truffle at each place setting to complement the fall color scheme and treat guests with the perfect amuse-bouche!”

If you live in New England, you can also find the Truffle Welcome Service.
