You can’t get much more quintessentially British than afternoon tea but, as much as I love it (and I really do!), on occasion I crave something a little different from dainty cakes and finger … [Read More...]
Last week I released the first part of my Easter Egg Taste Test with the likes of Waitrose and Willies Cocoa coming up trumps. Well it’s finally time for the second set of result to come to light with just under a week left to get your chocolate eggs under wraps. If you haven’t read part one yet, you can do so here, and part two is coming right up!
Charbonnel et Walker Milk Chocolate Easter Egg with chocolates – £26 – I think out of all the eggs I tried, taste wise this was my favourite! It’s expensive for a small egg but the truffles it’s packed with are absolutely worth every penny!
Lily O’Brien’s Sea Salted Caramels with Milk Chocolate Egg – £12.90 – A BIG egg! The salted caramel choccies that come with it are moreish, I chomped my way through to lot in one go… OINK!
Holdsworth Salted Caramel Mini Eggs – £5.99 – A great price for some yummy little oozy eggs!
Bonieri Decorative Imperial Eggs – £10.95 – I loved the keepsake eggs but these aren’t just style over substance. Each egg is filed with 10 addictive chocolates and I was shocked at how tasty the sugar free option was too!
Aldi Moser Roth Single Origin Easter Egg – £4.99 – A bargain price for a very grown up looking egg! Fun, quirky and some of the best dark chocolate I’ve had in a while.
Aldi Exquisite Easter Egg – £7.99- For just £7.99 this egg looks like it’s worth a heck of a lot more! tasty chocolate and the wow factor is there with its hand decorated style. *The below image is of a press sample and does not represent true packaging.
Rococo Praline City Farm – £8.95 – If you like praline then this is one for you! These cute farm animals are reminiscent of Easter and taste as good as they look.
Cadbury’s Double Decker egg – £4 – When it comes to Cadbury, Double Deckers are my go to, so it’s no surprise this came up tops.
Choc on Choc Hot Cross Buns – £15.00 – If you’re after a novel gift this year then these are for you. Filled with yummy marshmallow that comes as a surprise, I thoroughly enjoyed tasting these.
What else did I try?
Easter doesn’t always have to mean Easter eggs. During my taste test I also tried a selection of Easter themed Haribo ( hello super scrummy Tangfastics!) and some Chocolate Cold Brew coffee from Minor Figures which didn’t disappoint either.
It’s fair to say that after tasting all the chocolaty goodies I’m in need of a detox! This has been a choc-tastic Easter for me already and I would love for you to share your foodie Easter pictures with me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram tagging @EllieskitchenUK!
