STRATHAM, N.H., May 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- No matter how busy life gets, taking a moment to relax and recharge can make everything better, and according to a new Lindt USA survey, 90 percent of women across the country agree.  As women have an increasingly harder time unwinding, and moms specifically have more demanding family responsibilities to juggle, Lindt is encouraging women to gently melt away with LINDOR each day, and rewarding them for doing so.  Leading up to Mother's Day and throughout the month of May, Lindt is hosting the "Have You Felt the #LINDORmelt?" contest, asking fans to share their "melt-worthy" moments with LINDOR truffles for the chance to win indulgent and relaxing prizes.

Nearly all women polled (82 percent) agree there are more demands on their schedules today than there were for women a generation ago.  Yet, nearly one-in-three women (30 percent) say they only need five minutes a day or less to relax and recharge.  While it can be difficult to even find those few minutes to unwind, small indulgences, like enjoying a LINDOR truffle, can go a long way.  One-third of women say taking a moment for themselves each day makes them happier around friends, and 68 percent of moms say it makes them more patient and understanding around their children.

"The survey shows today's consumers are constantly involved, whether it's with work, family or the latest technologies.  Enjoying a LINDOR truffle only takes a moment and provides the perfect way to relax and melt away," said Danielle LaChance, Vice President of Marketing, Lindt USA.  "We want to encourage women to take time for themselves and celebrate those daily pauses."

The survey also reveals that women look forward to sharing their moments with others on social media.  Here's how to share your #LINDORmelt moment: now through May 31, 2014, chocolate lovers can enter the contest by visiting  to upload a photo or brief description, sharing how they felt a #LINDORmelt moment with a LINDOR truffle.  All entries will be featured in a photo gallery on the brand's Facebook page, inspiring others to enjoy and share their own "melt-worthy" moments.

As part of the contest, each day, five winners will be selected to receive two bags of smooth melting LINDOR truffles – one to enjoy and one to share with a friend.  One lucky grand prize winner will be awarded the ultimate melting experience – a spa getaway to Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Ariz. and a year's supply of LINDOR truffles.  Consumers can return daily to share more "#LINDORmelt" moments and increase their chances of winning.
