Lindt is an established premium chocolate brand from Switzerland founded in 1845. Their chocolates are loved by many people the world over, in 120 countries.

<Lindt White Chocolate Sakura Ice Drink>

This is a drink which combines a syrup-preserved Amarena Cherry, and the puree of Griot Cherry mixed with a white chocolate. The slightly salty taste and the scent of cherry blossoms are excellent.

The drink also uses the copeau of white chocolate, light whipped cream, red cherry sauce and cherry blossom leaf powder as a topping. Syrup preserved-cherry blossom petals will be added to your drink if you order the product in the Ginza Store.

 

The sweetness of the white chocolate enwraps the flavors of the two cherries, gently. This springy drink which has a slightly salty taste and the scent of cherry blossoms will help you enjoy the spring season. The color of the drink – pink and fresh green, is also refreshing to view.

<Lindt Delice Sakura>

A popular macaron which uses a ganache including Lindt’s chocolate.

 

The cherry puree, cherry blossom syrup and slightly salty ganache are sandwiched between the white chocolates. Gold powder is decorated on top of the delicate pink-colored shell, so the product is suitable to be used as a “White Day” gift.
