I was sent the above Hotel Chocolate Easter egg to try out. Part of the 'Beastie' range that they have introduced this year, the 'Zebra Beastie Egg' is one of the better value eggs from the collection this year. Priced at £15.00 it comes beautifully wrapped in a stand and cellophane with six mini eggs in both salted caramel and praline flavours.
The salted caramel truffles are one of my favourite things from the Hotel Chocolat range, and I was really pleased to see them included in this Easter egg. There are three of these smooth chocolates, and three of the praline flavoured mini eggs, which Mr. TBaM was only too happy to taste-test and declared them delicious.
The egg itself is made of thick milk chocolate , thicker than conventional Easter eggs, and this certainly helps to justify the pricetag of £15.00. I would like to point out that the 'Beastie Eggs' are aimed at children, and I do honestly feel that it's at least double the amount I would consider spending on a young child's egg. However, it would be an idea teenager's egg, especially with the zebra print made with an all-natural cocoa butter transfer, and I feel that £15.00 on a luxury egg for an appreciative teenager is a justifiable cost.
I was sent this product for the purpose of this review, my opinion is honest and unbiased.
