We were recently sent one of these handsome looking Easter eggs to test out. The Tesco Finest Belgian Plain Egg with Gold Lustre and Mini Eggs comprises a large dark chocolate egg which is decorated with edible, glittery gold lustre. It’s accompanied by 3 matching, hand decorated mini eggs.
This egg is one of a new Tesco Finest range of eggs which are made using gourmet Belgian chocolate. The chocolate has been created from premium grade beans from some of the world’s best cocoa harvests. Master chocolatiers created these artisan chocolate easter eggs by combining natural ingredients and flavours.
So what did we think? The chocolate is good and thick: the egg takes a bit of breaking into to. My 6-year-old son had one of the mini eggs and it took him quite a while to make a hole. It’s good quality chocolate too with that hint of bitterness that you get with the best dark chocolate. The easter egg is a good generous size too and it makes a lovely looking gift because the packaging looks the part too. It’s nice that you can share the mini eggs and still keep the big egg to yourself. The mini eggs are a reasonable size too as they are about the size of a hen’s egg.
