Lindt, Spruengli and the Conched Chocolate Bar

Lindt ChocolateIn 1845, the Spruengli family opened their Zurich confectionery, determined to produce chocolate bars that people might actually want to eat.  Mostly found in powdered or ground form for use in drinks, chocolate was still a fairly exotic item and almost never consumed as a stand alone confection, since most chocolate bars typically proved prohibitively gritty and quite bitter.  However, advances were being made and Spruengli and Son sought to get in on the ground floor.

In 1899, Spruengli made a major breakthrough with the acquisition of brilliant chocolatier Rodolphe Lindt's brand, thereby gaining access to a method Lindt had pioneered some years prior and that had been turning heads in the chocolate industry ever since.  The method was called "conching," so-named because of the shell-shaped vessels Lindt used to "conch" his chocolate.  The process, which involves grinding and mixing melted chocolate in large vessels with metal beads or wheels for extended periods (sometimes as long as three days), creates a great deal of frictional heat, smoothing the texture of the chocolate, releasing volatiles and mellowing the flavor.  This, along with traditional methods of refining and tempering, created chocolate that could mold readily, hold its shape and melt in the mouth. 

Thought to have been discovered as the result of chocolate mixer left on accidentally over night, conching may be the most delicious mistake ever made. Try some Lindt & Spruengli chocolate from Candy.com today and decide for yourself!
