I’m calling this a ‘mini egg’ as it doesn’t appear to have a real name. The (rather plain) foil wrapping just has the ‘Lindt Lindor’ brand on it and not much else.
Whatever you want to call this egg (I called mine Kylie), it’s a bit of an oddity. It’s very small (28g) and sits on the shelf in the shop looking a little sorry for itself, when in actual fact it should be shouting and making a noise.
You see, while it has a few flaws in its design, it’s really rather nice.
When opened, the egg splits in half lengthways, with each half filled with a delicious, creamy truffle. Except that it’s not quite ‘filled’ to the top. This is presumably so you can split it in half more easily, but in reality it just leaves you feeling a little short-changed.
The milk chocolate shell is typical Lindt – smooth, creamy and very tasty. Lindt is certainly one of my favourite makers of milk chocolate and this doesn’t disappoint. Except for the fact there’s just not enough of it!
With a little bit of attention to detail, this could easily give Cadbury Creme Egg a run for its money, but in its current form it seems like a bit of a half-hearted effort from Lindt.
On the offchance that anyone from Lindt is reading this, I have some suggestions on how to improve this offering for next Easter:
- Give it a proper name! (Kylie is a nice name, isn’t it?)
- Make it bigger! It needs to be at least as big as a Creme Egg to get my attention.
- Make the shell thicker
- Fill it up completely. I don’t like paying for air – even high quality Swiss air)
- Give it a funky wrapper
- Send me f

I look forward to tasting Kylie’s sibling (erm…) next Easter. Until then, I might pick up another one of these in passing, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy them.
