The Chocolate Detective, 12 Swallow Eggs, 145g


We have run out of stock for this item.

These milk chocolate eggs were laid in France and filled with either a delicious crispy hazelnut praline or with salted caramel ganache. Jeremy Lee in the Observer said, “These little eggs in a box are absolutely charming – genius packaging, beautiful colours. A nice thin candy shell. Sweet, but not cloying. This blue one is praline. I’ll try the brown – soft caramel. That was a wonderful surprise! Very winning!”

“The swallow is a keen and agile aviator, graceful and swooping in flight. Though you may see them perched like musical notes on telephone wires, they lead an almost constant airborne life, migrating enormous distances to and from Africa.”

These mixed bird eggs are part of the Chocolate Detective Curated Collection. This is the same selection that was voted Best Buy and given 5 stars by Quo Vadis’ Jeremy Lee in his Easter Taste test for the Observer this year.
