are Easter eggs. They're oval, they're filled with a chocolate
hazelnut filling, and the quality is pretty good. If I were
just looking at these details, this treat would get an OK review.
The hazelnut filling is smooth, plentiful enough, and tastes
great. The chocolate is a nice German chocolate that melts in
your mouth and adds a lot to the hazelnut flavour. The shape
is very average for this time of year, round, strange little
stripes, a sure sign of Easter. So what do these eggs offer
that hundreds of other chocolate eggs don't?
Size. I've never
really given much thought about Easter egg sizes until today.
Easter eggs come in a fairly large variety of sizes, from tiny
little foil wrapped eggs, to giant boxed eggs that can weight
many pounds. I've never really thought about how the size of
an egg can effect the enjoyment of eating them, until today.
These eggs are the perfect two bite eggs. The standard smaller
foil eggs are often one (or even half) of a bite, and you have
to painstakingly unwrap a second to get another taste. Large
eggs can often be too much for a quick bite, and then you're
left having to store a bunch of broken egg pieces.
These eggs on the
other hand are just perfect. I really like the idea of a treat
that consists of two bites. The first bite is always the pleasure
(or pain) bite. It's the bite that you don't really have time
to think about what you're eating, you just get a gut reaction.
If the reaction is good, like it is with these eggs, you want
another bite. Fortunately with these you get just that, and
then you're done. It may not seem like much of an advantage,
but I really think that these eggs will forever be the marker
for the perfect size for a chocolate treat.
