Easter is almost upon us and the shops are a wash with chocolatey goodness, everything looks pretty much the same as previous years; the token eggs with a cup in, bags of mini eggs and the standard kiddies varieties. I then spotted these Ferrero Eggs on offer as 2 for £2 in my local Tesco yesterday.
I’m going to admit, I seriously got my hopes up about these, I mean if Ferrero Rocher are good enough for the Ambassador’s reception ” – “Ambassador, with these Rocher, you’re really spoiling us’…. Then they are good enough for me, I would of imagined in any form, but boy did I set myself up for disappointment….
I failed to notice they came in two flavours, this is perhaps mistake number 1 as if I’d of noticed that I probably would have gone for the hazelnut ones….
I got around 7 eggs in the pack, all quite small – about the same size as the milky bar mini eggs perhaps? Individually foil wrapped; I imagine so you can give them to other folk once you realised how disappointing they are.
So mistake number 2 – not realising ‘fine’ chocolate (which they were described as on the packaging) translated at dark chocolate. Now, I’m by no means a chocolate racist, sometimes I enjoy the odd bit of dark chocolate, but when I’m expecting a little eggy weg with nutty, rocher-y goodness this wasn’t what I wanted.
Inside it was a similar layered effect to a Fererro Rocher – the crispy shell bit with goo on the inside, which once again was dark chocolate. There were no nuts here or other flavours either, in fact the whole egg was pretty bland. So now they’re abandoned on the kitchen side until my housemate eats them. Soz Ferrero Eggs, you just didn’t tickle my pickle. But do give them a go if you like bland dark chocolate that shatters your hopes and dreams in a single bite. They’re good for that. I’M AS BITTER AS THEY TASTED I TELL THEE.
