“ Brand: Mars / Type: Egg „
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.
While at the supermarket the other day, I noticed all of the Easter chocolates in the one aisle. I always try the different ranges so decided to pick up the Galaxy Caramel Egg as it was on offer and I haven't tried it before. I am a big fan of Galaxy chocolate and so thought I would probably like this anyway. There are so many different eggs out there at the minute and before Easter is up I want to try as many as possible.
The eggs are in an eye catching wrapper being in gold foil. It is a very nice design with a Galaxy logo in the middle and has little red butterflies all around it with Galaxy G's to decorate as well and make it look really pretty. The foil wrapper protects the egg inside but you cannot really see any detail on the packaging if you need to find anything out.
From neatly unfolding the foil wrapper, I was able to really clearly read the nutritional information. There is allergy information on this which states that this egg contains milk, soy. Traces of hazelnut, almonds and other nuts and contains natural flavouring. As to other nutritional facts such as calories per egg or fat and sugar amounts, they do not list this on the wrapper which is a bit irritating really.
Now, having looked at the multipack of these eggs, you do get the nutritional facts which are as follows. 184 calories per egg, 9.6g of fat, 2.1g of protein and 22.3g of carbohydrates.
Like most eggs this is a milk chocolate oval shape and has the Galaxy 'G' on each side of it. The chocolate egg is quite heavy but to bite into it, you instantly get a taste of the Galaxy chocolate as it has a nice, creamy texture to it which is why I love it so much. The inside of it with the caramel is also great, it is a thick golden brown coloured caramel inside and this compliments the chocolate perfectly. The two are quite thick together but the egg is not too heavy depending on what you have eaten previously in the day. For me, it just seemed like the ideal amount of chocolate, not too sickly sweet but more creamy and chocolate that I like.
I think this is a lovely Easter treat and is a nice gift to give anyone. If you are not a big fan of eating bigger eggs, then this is an alternative or if you are not too keen on a lot of chocolate then again this is enough to satisfy your sweet cravings. Out of all of the different little eggs I have tried, I definitely think this one is one of the best as the chocolate has a smooth texture to it and is really satisfying without being too heavy compared to some of the more sickly eggs.
If you are interested in buying one of these egg, then you can get them half price at Asda individually and they cost about 23p which is a bargain although normally they will cost 46p or something alike which isn't bad but doesn't seem as great as the cheaper option. You can also buy these in a multipack of three in the supermarket where they come in a longer tube and you unpeel the wrapper to reveal three foil wrapped 38g eggs. This will cot 99p which is quite good value for money as well.
The back of the multipack packaging has more details on the full list of ingredients where you can write to Mars also if you have any complaints, comments or questions. The official Mars website which isn't the most detailed is http://www.marsconsumercare.co.uk which lists more on the specific brands.
