“ Brand: Kinder / Type: Egg „
With Easter just past us, I luckily received these delicious little eggs as an Easter gift and I'm fairly sure that whilst I may still have more chocolate than I can possibly eat left, these eggs are my favourite gift this Easter. So much so, that my absolute delight about them has driven me to write this review to share the joy of these tasty little treats with you!
They only come in a small pack containing 10 eggs, it's a 100g bag with each egg being 10g, so a very good small treat. The Kinder branding is easily recognisable, the mainly white packaging with a splash of red at the bottom, with an image of the contents of the eggs on the front.
Each egg is individually wrapped in gold foil, so for my first mouthful I carefully unwrapped my little egg, for they are only about 3cm by 2cm in size, had a sniff, from which you could already smell that wonderful nutty chocolate fragrance and with my mouth watering, I took a bite. Needless to say, I was very pleased by the taste.
The chocolate around the egg is a little bit like that of the Kinder surprise eggs, a layer of milk chocolate on top of a layer of white chocolate both tasting distinctively milky. Underneath that, there's a thin wafer in which is held a deliciously soft and creamy hazelnut filling. It's by no means overbearing, it's not a very strong taste, the mix is actually just right.
The chocolate and hazelnut filling melts in the mouth slowly whilst the wafer disintegrates making the texture of the egg very similar to that of the actual Bueno bar. That said, I'd actually liken the taste to something in between the Kinder Bueno and Kinder's Happy Hippo biscuits.
Kinder Bueno bars are probably one of my favourite chocolate treats, so I did expect to like these eggs, I just didn't nearly expect them to taste half as good as they do! I can't recommend these enough, with Easter now over, you may be lucky and find some of these discounted in a supermarket. If you are not so lucky however, be sure to keep an eye out for these next year, as you won't be disappointed!
Calorie content isn't something you'll want to spend too much time looking at however, 57 calories for just one of these tiny eggs suggests you probably don't want to wolf down the entire packet too quickly. For the one though, it's definitely worth it!
Kinder Bueno Eggs
Easter is upon us and the shops are as always swamped with delicious egg shaped chocolate. The list is endless and is sometimes hard to choose but when I stumbled across the latest release from Kinder I just had to try them.
Everybody remembers the hollow Kinder Eggs from when they were young! Although the chocolate was rather yummy you only really wanted them because they had a toy inside. Many years later they introduced the Kinder Bueno Bar. Two sticks of delicious wafer and hazlenut filling covered in chocolate which was aimed more towards the grown-ups. These eggs are based upon those bars.
The eggs are sold in bags that hang up on the shelves with the likes of mini-eggs. The design of the bag is along the lines of the original Kinder Egg. The distinctive orange bottom with white on top with a clear window in the middle of the bag which allows you to see the eggs. Each individual egg is wrapped in gold embossed foil with the Kinder Bueno logo on the front and the back. Each bag contains around 12 eggs so these are really good value for money and are great for mini Easter Egg hunts.
Kinder describe these eggs as 'Crispy Chocolate wafer eggs with a milky hazlenut filling'. They measure 3 1/2 cm x 2.5cm so are much smaller than a Cadbury's Cream Egg.
The chocolate is very smooth in appearance when you unwrap the egg. The smell is gorgeous - you can really smell the hazlenut filling. When you bite into the egg you a greeted with a wafer layer which is immediately beside the chocolate and the cream filling is in the middle.
The egg tastes identical to the Kinder Bueno bars and are very soft and quite literally just melt in your mouth. They taste much naughtier than they really are - 57 calories per egg and 3.8g fat. The downside is that they melt really quickly so are not great for younger children.
Cost and availability
These are available at all larger supermarkets down the 'sweetie' aisle and are priced at £1.99 making them around 13p each.
If you are a lover of all things Bueno then make sure you grab these before they disappear for another year!
