I used to love Cadbury Cream eggs until they changed the recipe. So I have a good excuse to go out and try all the other little eggs around to see how nice they are. I found a pack of cute little Galaxy caramel eggs in Poundland and I thought they sounded yum. I like Galaxy so adding caramel has got to be gilding the lilly right?
These eggs are small, like the size of a real egg so they aren't the really mini easter eggs you can use to decorate all your Easter cakes. But they would be great for an egg hunt as each one is wrapped in foil to keep them nice and clean.
The chocolate from these eggs is really thick and chunky, especially at the ends. It tastes smooth and gorgeous, just like the Galaxy you get in the chocolate bars, which is good because some of the Easter eggs don't use the proper quality stuff. Inside the centre is stuffed full of caramel. It's like the caramel you get in the Mars bars, so not very runny or too chewy but just thick enough to be delicious.
The eggs are not as pretty as some because the wrapping is brown and yellow. It does look right for choc and caramel but it could have been a lot brighter. I bought three in a cardboard tray which would make a nice little Easter gift if the bigger eggs are too much. But you could buy just one to treat yourself to for about 60p in places like newsagents. I am definitely going to buy these again, and not just for Easter, as they taste seriously good. I recommend these if you like Galaxy and caramel, because they go great together.
When I brought a load of reduced priced small eggs in Cost Cutter the other day one I had to try was a Galaxy Caramel Egg because I've seen it about for a couple of Easters now but have never got round to trying them. They're a bit boring wrapped in brown foil and I reckon that's why I've overlooked them in the past, the egg was GORGEOUS though and I even went back to the shop to see if they'd got any left today! lol
The egg is the size of a Creme Egg but made out of Galaxy chocolate, it's filled with the wickedly rich caramel that is inside a Galaxy Caramel bar. I didn't think it would be the same caramel because I thought that would be a bit too rich inside a big space like the egg but it's delish and doesn't get sickly unless you're a pig and eat more than you should.
The egg is completely filled with caramel and as soon as you bite the top off you'll be able to get into the filling. It's dead thick so you can bite through the chocolate and use your teeth to get through the caramel at the same time. I like sucking the chocolate of the egg and leaving as much of the caramel for as long as possible, the chocolate goes soooooooo rich when it's melting in your mouth and then you get a bit of caramel on the chocolate and that goes warm and gooey too..... delish!!!
It's LOADS more exciting than a Creme Egg because I reckon everyones eaten enough of them now, and it tastes more grown up than a Cadburys Caramel egg because even though they're gorgeous too this one has the caramel tasting a bit more luxurious and like toffee instead of just being sweet. The normal price is 60p and even though the egg is only small I still reckon this is good value because of how yummy and tasty they are, I could eat loads but then I'd deffo get sick because these eggs are majorly sickly after a bit. I have eaten 2 in about an hour and could feel the 2nd one for ages after I'd eaten it, it was the sweetness AND how rich the chocolate was.
Galaxy chocolate is delish, and this is PROPER Galaxy and not a cheap version made just for Easter eggs.
