We’ve had the¬†mass-produced mini eggs, and now time for some gourmet ones from Michel Cluizel. These ones are called Les Oeufs Vichy and are essentially three pastel-coloured mini eggs with gianduja coated in coloured white chocolate. For those that don’t know, gianduja is chocolate mixed with ground hazelnuts. It’s a more sophisticated alternative to praline – which I often find too sweet.
Michel Cluizel is one of the world’s most respected chocolate makers. But as with many in the artisan chocolate industry, they’ve made a small selection of chocolate novelties such as chocolate fish (big in France at Easter) and these lovely and bright chocolate eggs. For ¬£7.95 you get a box of 3 eggs measuring about 4.5cm tall and 3.5cm across.
Not only are the colours of the eggs bright, but they’re also fragrant with a spring-like air. They’re much lighter than I expected too – not only in terms of the colour of the filling, but also the texture and density. That flavour isn’t¬†intensely¬†nutty at all, more sweet and fruity. The white chocolate shell certainly helps to lend to that feeling.
After about 3/4 of one then I found it to get a bit much – but I have reviewed over fifty Easter eggs over the past couple of months and it’s probably taking its toll.
Overall, I feel that if you’re looking for a light, sweet mini egg from a renowned French chocolate maker then this is probably for you.
