Eggstravaganza 2017

It’s time for the annual eggstravaganza.  After last year I wasn’t sure I would find anything new and exciting enough but it appears the chocolatiers aren’t resting on their laurels.

My first new find was from Lindt.  Most of you will be familiar with the dark, milk, and white chocolate bunnies.  This year there’s a hazelnut version.  Looking forward to tucking in to that one!


The next surprise was a large truffle egg with a shiny copper coating (edible, of course), courtesy of Tesco.


Before you start jumping up and down at the thought of a truffle egg that large, it’s still primarily hollow; however inside the chocolate shell is a layer of soft truffle.  I did sample this little gem, having cracked it open to show the inside, and it is yummy!  The only drawback was the copper coating comes off easily on your hands and needs to be washed off.

The pièce de résistance for 2017 is what I call the Conehead egg, brought to you by Marks and Spencer.  They call it a teardrop, but it reminded me of the Coneheads movie from the early 1990’s.  It came with an assortment of filled truffles.

I hope you enjoyed this year’s installment of eggstravaganza.  Have a blessed Easter.


(Note:  I receive no sponsorship for these products – just wanted you to know where I bought them in case you want to run to the store for any after Easter bargains.)



  1. Happy Easter, Dawn! You have made my mouth water with your descriptions of these treats.

  2. Thanks for the non-fattening chocolate dosage…just about right for me…
