Egg Hunt 2019

First, apologies to my readers as I haven’t posted anything in months.  Mostly because all I’ve done in the past few months was fret, stress, fume, and steam over the house buying process in Ireland.  Never have I been a part of anything so dysfunctional in my life.  I could go on and on, but that’s a rant for another day.

As viewed from the on-ramp of the freeway heading from what will be my new home town of Ashbourne, Co Meath onto the N2 motorway is a giant rabbit sculpture which fit in nicely with this year’s Easter post.

It was Marks and Spencer who had the best options for eggstravant eggs this year.  Nothing too otherworldly to make you go WOW, but I did find some on what I consider the sophisticated end of the chocolate egg trade.

First up is a dark chocolate egg with a lovely feather design.  It also has a little tray below bearing golden truffle eggs.

Next was one of two I saw in the new ruby red range of chocolate.  According to Wikipedia, ruby red chocolate has only been around since 2017 and only to the general public since 2018.  Also according to the same source, ruby Kit Kat was introduced to Japan and South Korea and that’s the other ruby red I saw this year – a large red Kit Kat egg.  However, I considered my version more elegant and in keeping with this year’s theme.

Lastly, an egg I didn’t get to purchase because I didn’t find out about it in time, is the Wild Atlantic Way egg by Hazel Mountain Chocolate, located in the Burren and Galway.  Checking their events page, you can have a ‘lock in’ day at the chocolate factory learning about the chocolate making process and sampling plenty of goodies along the tour.  I need to book one of these for a future excursion.

Hope you have a safe, healthy, and happy Easter!
