Hotel Chocolat have a large range of Easter Gifts, with something to suit most budgets and tastes. You probably all know how much I love Hotel Chocolat. We've had the pleasure of reviewing their products before but never their Easter range.... until now! We were lucky enough to be sent one of their You Crack Me Up Extra Thick Eggs to review and wow we've loved reviewing it!
|You Crack Me Up Extra Thick Easter Egg - £26.99|
The egg comes beautifully presented in a lovely hat box finished with ribbon - a perfect gift. Inside the egg is already split in two and covered in foil. Wrapped in tissue paper inside both halves are 12 gorgeous Easter themed chocolates!
To be honest it was really exciting opening the egg and seeing what was inside...let alone actually trying the egg itself.
As the name suggests this is an Extra Thick Easter egg! The egg itself is 40% milk chocolate and I have never seen an egg quite so thick before - lovely and chunky (see below)!
As for the chocolates inside the egg there are twelve all together, two of each of six different varieties. The chocolates themselves look really cute with an Easter theme, from Chirpy Chicks to Bunnies, Fried Eggs to Dippy Soldiers. What's more they taste fantastic too! Personally my favourite was the Crunchy Praline smiley egg, the Chocolate Brownie a close second and the Chirpy Chick with crushed caramel pieces and a hint of sea salt coming in third. Truth be told though we both loved all of the chocolates!
Moving on to the egg itself, Jonathon had to give it a good whack to break it up into pieces. It's lovely milky chocolate, the thickness means that you are getting plenty of chocolate for your money and the quality of the chocolate is great.
Honestly we couldn't fault this egg, from its appearance to its taste it ticked all of the boxes! Eggseptional ... sorry!
