Hotel Chocolat: Zebra Beastie Egg (Review)

Hotel Chocolat Zebra Milk Beastie Easter Egg

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.

    I'm salivating! I remember my 1st Hotel Chocolat Easter egg. It was a massive and extra thick one. I'd never had an Easter egg so thick – it took ages to eat! It also came with lots of 'very' nice chocolates to eat.

    This looks like a smaller, but good alternative for those who don't want to bury themselves in a cupboard for days and not want to share, lol – I did share, really I did :o)

    I love their Salted Caramel truffles too. I have put in a request for some HC chocolate for my birthday this week. I really hope Salted Caramel is on there somewhere!
