As one final bubble article in my time at RHS, what better way for me to express my thoughts than telling you my opinion on your favourite Easter chocolate? I could have spoken about covid, politics, human rights, but no, chocolate is all that is on my mind as Easter Sunday approaches. So here we are, full circle since I told you which chocolate bar you are…
The Mighty Creme Egg: 8/10
If your heart belongs to the creme egg, I must say you have good taste, although a little unoriginal- no edgy people here, thanks! I do love a creme egg, and you definitely need a sweet tooth to adore this Easter Chocolate- for me, one is certainly enough but I have a lot of respect for anyone who can finish a pack of five!
Mini Eggs: 9/10
An absolute classic- anyone who can’t stomach mini eggs evidently need to have another pack immediately. I was adamant each colour tasted different when I was younger, with blue being my all-time favourite. In comparison to the creme egg, mini eggs are slightly more dangerous, as you run the risk of eating a whole pack in a matter of minutes, or seconds.
Lindt Bunny: 15/10
In my opinion, Lindt is the chocolate version of fine dining; it is absolutely divine (and that’s an understatement!). There is something incredibly special about biting a bunny’s head off and enjoying the spirit of Easter*. Lindt is an iconic Easter chocolate, and the bunny paws and carrots add a scenic mastery to the world of chocolate (not to mention, are incredibly exciting as part of an Easter egg hunt).
*I should clarify, I am joking, I am really a vegetarian
Thornton’s Chocolate Egg: 5/10
I will admit the low scoring may come from a place of jealousy. I have never had one, but I always wanted a personalised one from Thornton’s. I’m not even sure if Thornton’s is still open but I always used to oggle at these eggs through the window and think how fancy they were. Very high quality chocolate is remarkable, but sometimes you do just need a bit of Cadbury’s for Easter.
Oreo Easter Eggs: 3/10
Nothing more to say I dislike them greatly. Will eat if they are the only option.
Cadbury’s Egg ‘n’ Spoon: 10000000/10
These are the OG Easter chocolate- nothing hurt me more than when they discontinued the vanilla flavour filling. The excitement of biting the top off and using a little spoon to get the middle out was unmatched throughout my plethora of Easter Sundays, so these have a particularly special place in my heart!
Mars Ester Egg: 6/10
With regards to the actual chocolate egg, I am not the biggest fan of plain nestle chocolate, the real joy arises from the chocolate bars you get in the egg as well. I love Mars Bars, so these make up massively for the slightly disappointing chocolate egg!
So here is my opinion piece on Easter chocolate, I hope that everyone gets a huge amount of chocolate this year, I am definitely hoping for a Lindt bunny!
