Hand-made to our specification in a little factory in the Midlands, the thickness of the chocolate is vulgar, and the filling is ridiculous.
We made these first in 2012 as a response to the lingering disappointment as children. Don't get me wrong - our parents were generous with the egg action, but the air inside them was always a terrible let-down. They're back for 2014.
These eggs are NOT 'nut-safe' or nut free, but they are entirely suitable for greedy vegans as they are dairy free. They’e also completely fine for coeliacs as they’re gluten-free. How fabulous!
We make three different egg styles:
- a chocolate shell filled with chocolate. Obviously. A disgusting 331g net weight. The chocolate, by the way, is none of your milky-tasting barely-there-on-the-cocoa stuff - this is a unique recipe, good and dark without the negative connotations sometimes attached (not by us we hasten to add) to the word 'dark'.
- a chocolate shell filled with the finest hazelnut praline blended with 5% liquid chocolate. The most obese of our eggs, it weighs a whopping 334g. Sweet - you couldn't eat too much at once!
- the same chocolate shell filled with the same hazelnut praline, but blended with 10% liquid chocolate - a guilty 320g, and a slightly more grown-up taste, though perfectly good for tiny palates as well.
