Are You a Truffle Trivia Expert?

Thank you for taking the Truffle Trivia! As a true chocolate lover, you must be curious to know the correct answers. Which question did you find the most challenging?

Answer A – 12 Miles

Answer B – 25 Miles

Answer C – 47 Miles

Answer D – 59 Miles

Answer E – 100 Miles

Answer F – To the moon and back

Correct Answer: 47 Miles. LINDOR truffle is about 3 inches long. Therefore, a million truffles would stretch 3,000,000 inches far. As there are 63,360 inches in a mile, 1 million truffles would stretch approximately 3,000,000/63,360 = 47 miles far.

Answer A – Derived from the French tout autour, meaning “all round”

Answer B – Derives from the Latin word tuber, meaning “accumulation” or “ball”

Answer C – Derived from the French tranche, meaning “slice” or “block”

Answer D – Derives from the Latin word tragematum, meaning “sweet”

Answer E – Derives from the French truffe meaning “nose”

Answer F – Derives from the  Latin ineluctabiliter laevibus, meaning “irresistibly smooth”

Answer C – 289 years

Answer D – 1568 years

Answer E – 2738 years

Answer F – 5276 years

Correct Answer: 2738 years. If you ate one truffle a day, you would have enough truffles for a million days. Given that every 4th year is a leap year: 1,000,000/365.25 = 2738 years (approximately).

    Question #5– How many years would a supply of one million LINDOR truffles last if you ate one a day? Hello if I only ate 1 in a day is ((just one))………there is no way I can only eat just one..that my dear is totally impossible……….to eat just one.

    I agree that they last so long! Does that include it sitting in my stoach LOL.  Thats almost like a twinkie they last forever also.  So if the world should end our food supply to stock up on is Lindor Truffles and twinkies.

  • Tkeithfan2003

    The one i got right was number 4. I can’t download a coupon to get a free bag. Why can’t you just mail me a coupon.  My address is Diane Haynes  276 Jarrell Farm Road  Reidsville,N.C. 27320. Some of us can’t download and print out coupons. It’s not fair to those who can’t print them out. Thank you.

  • Smneitzel

    The reprint still did not work for me yet.  Received this screen:
    Limit ReachedWe’re sorry, but you have reached your personal print limit for this coupon campaign. Please check back soon to be the first to find out about our next 

  • Gramma2hannah

    I got 2 answers correct… but that’s okay… I know how delicious and satisfying they are so that makes me pretty smart…. thanks for the coupon…: ) Have a “sweet” day….

  • Lynne Blitz

    Wow, do I love these truffles. They are the best ever! There is no way I could eat only 1 a day, though, and I would really love to get a million truffles to see how many days they would last! I had 3 out of 5 right, and had fun guessing at the answers!

  • Joan Melnick

    i am glad that Lindt now has a kosher certification…actually i knew they were instinctually and have been savouring them for years…why are they so expensive in Canada?

  • Gatita725

     I reccommend the milk chocolate ones- and I reccommend keeping them in the fridge so the chocolate takes longer to melt in your mouth!! :)

  • Myriam

    That was fun. I do have to say that question 5  How many years would it take to eat a million truffles is a trick question, we all know no one can eat just one a day : )

  • Benfleck

    You called me a novice, but don’t even know how many I got right.

  • Nana_4x

    I got 3 out of 5 right; the correct ones were 2, 4 and 5.  I may be a novice but I still love those Lindor Truffles

  • Fopplmom

    I didn’t know the wrapper was still on for question one.  Unwrapped they about 1 1/2 inches long and they would stretch about 25 miles

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IDV6DXEK3G4JSPJ5Q2EEOTEZ2E Carol Baxter

    Was as good as the flavor of a Lindt

  • Nancy Jones

    Don’t have time to study about Lindor truffles, I’m too busy eating them and enjoying them.

  • Jewelfires

    They ARE pretty good—But, apparently you’ve never had Daffin’s chocolate from Sharon, PA.   If you think Lindt melt in your mouth……you’ve got to try them.  (And, I don’t work for them or anything)  :)

  • Jewelfires

    Exactly,  Why would the WRAPPER still be ON?????????          HA HA

  • C.J.

    I got #2 &#3 right. The rest I was guessing.
