Hotel Chocolat kindly sent me a Your Eggscellency™ Extra Thick Easter Egg.
The packaging was beautiful, almost a mini hat box, with a luxury black ribbon tied around it. I have previously criticised HC for their excessive packaging, but this time I was won over. Not as much plastic as there was last year. A couple of months ago I was seriously underwhelmed by the HC Advent Calendar, but this li'l baby ticked all the boxes. Exciting packaging, thick chocolate in two colours and inside, 12 liqueur chocs: Champagne truffle was my fave, followed by the Mojito and then the Bison Grass Vodka.
One side of the shell was half milk and the other half plain chocolate. I really liked that - I am a fan of both and it was nice to take a bite of each. It was indeed very thick chocolate that I rather liked. You could really bite into it and hear it snap - you don't get that with a Cadburys Egg.
This sizeable egg costs a sizeable £26
