Ocado have a lovely selection of eggs out this year with all budgets catered for. While I was on my cruise, my very helpful family opened and ‘reviewed’ the selection for me (for reviewed please read scoffed), but very kindly took a picture of them. They tried (from L to R)
Montezumas milk chocolate with salted peanut butter mini eggs (declared by English Dad to be ‘The Best Thing I Have Ever Eaten. Ever’)
Montezumas organic dark chocolate chunky egg – this dark chocolate was a bit too intense for the teenagers. Might be worth choosing for a proper dark chocolate connoisseur though.
Talking of Montezumas – they’ve also brought out a rather quirky half dark chocolate half milk chocolate egg, for those of us who are undecided (or, indeed, who like to share).
Sadly it’s sold out online, so you’ll have to seek it out instore. I’ve also got rather a soft spot for their white chocolate bunnies too. Their white chocolate is lush – not sickly like some can be and with a very nice texture.
Cadbury’s have gone a bit mad this year and brought out Egg ‘n’ Spoon. Sold in a purple egg box, there are four individual eggs inside filled with either chocolate mousse or milky mousse. The pack contains a spoon so you can crack open the eggs and scoop out the mousse. Yummers.
And lastly, but not leastly: when we were at Asda House recently, we spotted their giant Extra Special Easter eggs. Sadly they are far too large to slip into one’s handbag (not that I would, obviously, if anyone from Asda is watching), but seek them out for your somebody special. There’s an Extra Special Belgian milk and white chocolate egg, and an Extra Special Belgian milk chocolate egg, both weighing in at a whopping 1kg and both at the very reasonable price of £10.
So that’s my testing done. I’m so helpful aren’t I? Saving you all that annoying and, frankly, fattening chocolate eating?
