Chococo Milk Chocolate Rattle Eggs

I’m very lucky to be a chocolate blogger. Every Easter I get all kinds of chocolate companies asking if they can send egg-shaped products for review.

This year has been particularly busy, what with Easter falling so close to Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. So I’ve been asking chocolate companies to send me things that are a bit different from the standard egg. There’s only so many ways you can write about those.

And that’s how I ended up with an egg box full of hen’s egg sized milk chocolate eggs from Chococo. It’s not fancy, it’s just a little different from the norm.

I love this kind of packaging. It’s simple and recyclable, but bright, colourful and enticing.

“But why are they called Rattle Eggs?”, I hear you ask. Well, dear reader, it’s because they rattle! And a very satisfying rattle it is too.

There are three differnt ‘fillings’ to the eggs; jelly beans, sugar coated chocolate buttons (that’s Smarties to you) and mini eggs! Yes, that’s eggs within eggs!

These jelly beans are my favourite though. I have to admit, I’m a bit of a jelly bean fan, and I do like the zingy fruity flavours in these beans. Yes it’s just candy, but it’s a nice contrast to the rich, 43% milk chocolate.

The mini eggs and Smarties if a bit of a crunch to them, which is nice, but I’m all about the jelly beans.

Obviously though, these are aimed at kids, and I think they’ll just love them.

As a child, I loved the thrill of an Easter egg full of stuff, but was so often disappointed by empty eggs or horrible chocolate. There’s no danger of disappointment here though. They may be simple, but they’re the perfect Easter gift for the discnering child. They can even be shared, if you can persuade your child to do such a thing.

Comments On This Post

  1. Yes, hollow eggs are the worst, especially when the chocolate is cheap rubbish made by Nestle!

    I love the idea of a jelly bean filled egg, yum!

  2. Everything about the presentation is spot-on! The traditional egg carton, the contrasting and gleaming colors, and even the surprise of whether you hit smarties or jelly beans on the inside. Great find!

  3. They look great! I love organising a garden Easter egg hunt every year for siblings and friends (the grown ups get impressively excited and competitive!) and it’s great to find eggs that aren’t just tiny and boring, or hollow and disappointing.

    Little eggs inside a big egg! Thats genius!
