Which chocolate chooks lay the best chocolate eggs?

By trevar - 10 April 2009 27

Usually by this time I have ventured out and bought a very large chocolate egg for the kids to have on Easter Sunday, but this year, I kept thinking I should wait.

And now here it is, Good Friday, and I need to find a big egg by Sunday… 

So, I am wondering if anyone out there in RiotACT land can share their wisdom on the last minute purchase of chocolate eggs exceeding 1kg…

Life won’t be worth living if the three little trevars don’t have an enormous egg to break open come Sunday morning!

What’s Your opinion?

K-Mart are having a 20% off sale on chocolate eggs tomorrow, if you managed to miss all the ads on the commercial networks, a large egg from there should be the best deal.

Geez – when did chocolate become so complicated.

There is now child-slave free chocolate and fair trade chocolate in supermarkets – only blocks tho, no eggs.

And Darryl Lea is at least a genuine Australian company, even if it is run by a very strange family, as shown on Australian Story.

Hmmm, Rosebud, if you don’t mind spending the money, you could try to find Valrhona, Escazu or Bonnat chocolate … other than that, some Haigh’s from Adelaide is better than Kokoblack because of the better texture. Bruno’s is also Singapore chocolate (labelled European) and too full of cacao butter to bother with …

So that begs the next question I-Filed – where IS the best ‘true’ chocolate to be purchased in Canberra? Not being a real conniseur, I quite like Koko Black, but am very opem minded, well, at least about finding a better chocolate.

No eggs for me, fabforty! I’m fertile enough!! You only have to look at me and I have chicks hatching left, right and centre like Old Mother Goose! Well, not you maybe, but, you know, … boys!!

*chuckle*

Woah! The three little Trevars must be much better behaved than my brood! If I did that, all that would be left would be a few scraps of clothing, a single shoe and a large clump of somebody’s hair ….

Darrel Lea make very nice eggs, but you’ll possibly be lucky to get anything at this stage …. The little Trevars are counting on you, so good luck! Let us know how you get on.

We are having kind of a GFC Easter this year. Much less lavish than other years.

An M&M bunny for the four-year-old, a white Cadbury bunny for the nine-year-old, a Kit-Kat bunny for the thirteen-year-old, a Lindt egg for the twenty-seven-year-old, a Bob the Builder torch egg for the two-year-old grandson, and a teeny tiny Favourites egg for Gramps. Also a few packets of filled eggs for a treasure hunt – Caramello, Peppermint, Crunchie eggs and Milky Bar eggs – and two packets of hot cross buns – one regular, one chocolate.

All courtesy of last minute last night at Woolies Gungahlin.

And nothing at all for poor old Granny who is still on a diet. *sigh*

But Granny – you must have an egg. You owe it to Jesus !

Upmarket – Coco Black

Sorry, I have to disagree – don’t be fooled! Koko Black don’t make upmarket chocolate at all – it’s medium quality at most, sourced from Singapore. Way overpriced, and the basis is cheap SE Asian cacao or the lesser quality forastero bean, rather than good Criollo beans from South America. I checked with them when they first opened in Canberra. Plus their chocolate is insufficiently conched, so it isn’t smooth, and was still partly crystalline, the block I bought (and regretted). Darrel Lea’s best dark chocolate is actually very close in quality – if not parity.

I refuse to buy my eggs before Good Friday. I have an issue with the damn things being out for sale within days of Christmas ending…..

Going to get the eggs tomorrow. 🙂

Upmarket – Coco Black

Granny, you’re too generous! The three little trevars all share one big egg! Although if my hunt is unsuccessful, that may change!

Tomorrow morning I will be braving the wilds of Woden…

yeah try bigW/Kmart – they usually have huge ones.

I’ve seen big eggs at K-Mart. Not sure if they’re 1kg or not.

It is important for all children to have an egg larger than their head.

Darryl Lea maybe?
