The 15 filled chocolate eggs arrived quickly and well packaged in the post, so I can recommend their postal service if you want to order from their website :)
But getting to the good bit, the chocolates… well, unusually they lasted a few nights in the house which was a pleasant surprise, not because they were horrible – because they were too lovely & had to be savoured!
Our Top 3
Caramel Egg – delicious sweet runny caramel in a 50% milk chocolate shell, it tastes even better than it sounds
Vanilla Custard Egg – vanilla custard ganache in a milk chocolate shell, I could have eaten a whole box of these
Blueberry Egg - very fruity blueberry ganache in white chocolate, I am weary of fruity chocolate but this really tasted like fresh blueberries and went nicely with the smooth white chocolate shell
All the eggs were lovely and the chocolate shells are nice and thick so you get a good chocolate fix with each one. The strawberry egg was another fresh fruity surprise in white chocolate and the caramel praline egg tasted like a Ferrero Roche encased in a caramel chocolate shell nom nom nom…
The only downside to this box is that there are 15 chocolates in each box and 8 flavours so there weren’t two of every flavour. We had 5 pairs, one triple selection (Caramel, yummy) but two came on their own & I dont like sharing ;)
