So what does a ‘fine chocolate’ Easter egg have to taste like to qualify for that label? How good should a small Easter egg be if you’re charging Â£8.95 for it? And how wonderfully packaged should it be? Well, I’d say this Madame Oiseau Easter egg falls short on all accounts.
You see, not only does this Swirl Milk Chocolate Easter Egg not look as good as it should, when compared to some other chocolatiers, but it’s a lot smaller than I thought. I know I should have read that it was only 12cm, but I expected it to be 20%-30% larger. Another thing, and this is the crux of the issue, the chocolate just isn’t anything special.
Of course it tastes better than Nestle and Cadbury, but most Easter eggs do. This just tastes too sweet and that itâ€™s got too much vanilla in it. And that’s the problem with Belgium chocolate – there’s too much sugar and fats. I know that most kids and adults with unsophisticated palettes will love it, but if you’re looking for an Easter egg in the fine, or luxury bracket then I suggest you pop along to Hotel Chocolat instead. But that being said, it is strangely addictive. And that’s why I don’t like myself. I shouldn’t like it, but if you’re like me and need a sugar rush then go for this egg, you’ll be left disappointed that you didn’t get more for your money, but at least you wouldn’t have filled yourself with mass-produced chocolate.
All in all, I wouldn’t say this is anywhere near one of the best Easter eggs I’ve ever reviewed, but I have tasted much worse.
