I think it's fair to say that Easter Eggs are a bit of a rip off.About the same amount of chocolate in a small bar of Galaxy can cost about six quid if its hollow, covered in foil and shaped like an egg, or in this case a bunny. It really is mark up heaven at Easter time as grizzling kid's claw and prod the eggs and chocolate strategically placed by the checkout. But its Easter time and even Jesus has to change the day he is crucified every year to fit in around the annual chocolate indulgence.In my day getting an Easter egg was pure avarice and you wanted as many as you could get to hoard in your bedroom, your mouth as dirty as a Bolivian hoar by the end of the day, smeared in chocolate and your teeth laced with tin foil, your gums glittering like a gangbangers caps in Compton! The sensation of cracking opening an Easter Egg with that gentle ?snap' and the chocolate smell washing over you was like nothing else. Just as Coca & Cola invented the red & white Father Christmas we all know, I'm pretty sure Cadburys invented the Easter Bunny.Last year the COOP reduced all their stock to clear on Easter Tuesday and nearly all the eggs were a quid. So I decided to buy one for me and one for my little niece, who does chocolate face like no other, the pleading and the messy one. She doesn't grizzle but just points. ?Egg, Egg, Egg?' It's very sweet. How can I resist, even though I was given strict instructions not to buy chocolate by my older sister. I don't think I will make a good dad. Little Eloise will be as fat as Prince George (well come on it's a big baby) if she comes shopping with Uncle Phillip.Anyhow, the egg is shape like a big bunny, of course, and has four small bunnies inside, weighing gin around 160g. Its a classic milk chocolate shell and the bunnies inside are solid chocolate with a crispy fudge layer just under the shell. The egg is not foil wrapped and as with all eggs the box is deliberately large to make the egg look more than it is. It doesn't actually taste like Maltesers chocolate. Its an outrageous 6 quid on the highstreet but you could get in Wilko's for half that. Shaping it like a rabbit obviously meant it need ed skilled labor, hence the price.I would say it will fill your kid up and hopefully they will share the little rabbits inside with mummy or their little brothers or sisters. I didn't and gobbled the lot soon after. My little niece is far classier and saved the egg to take to school to share with her friends. Well it's not as if they are celebrating the birth of Jesus by cracking chocolate eggs on their foreheads.
My sister got a Maltesers egg for Easter, between us all we got shedloads of eggs and have still got a few left because we've been trying not to eat them too much. It's a medium Easter egg and came with 2 normal sized bags of Maltesers, you can get all different Maltesers Easter eggs though in different sizes to suit anyone you need to buy an egg for.
The egg comes apart easy, it was deffo stuck together more than the Cadbury eggs..... and that wouldn't be hard because THEY have hardly been stuck together at all this year! lol
The chocolate is quite thick on the egg, it's lovely and creamy as well and has got a better flavour than I thought it would have because I'm never mad keen on Mars chocolate. It's a creamy chocolate and quite sickly so I couldn't eat much of this egg all at once, it's proper addictive though and even though I was feeling a bit pukey by the time I'd scoffed a load of the chocolate egg I still couldn't stop myself breaking more off!
The 2 bags of Maltesers are the same as you'd buy out of the shop. They are balls of honeycomb that has been covered in chocolate, I've never been mad keen on them actually because they're sooooooo sweet but they're dead popular. My fave way to eat them is to suck all the chocolate off and then let the honeycomb kind of collapse in my mouth, that way you get all the yummy flavour but don't have to crunch the honeycomb because that's when it gets MAJORLY sweet and might give you tooth ache! lol
I reckon this is a wicked Easter egg for anyone who loves Maltesers, I wouldn't be that chuffed to get it but that's only because there are loads of other chocolates that I'd rather eat that a bag of Maltesers. They should have given the egg a Malteser flavour and that might have made it a bit more interesting.
