Thorntons Black Forest Gateau Easter Egg

All in the Name of Love – Thorntons Black Forest Gateau Egg Review and Giveaway:

The things I do for my readers!  It is that time of year isn’t it.  Everyone has started getting ready for Easter.  If you are a grown-up without kids, maybe you miss out on Easter Eggs.  Or, do you persuade your partner or treat yourself?  Me, I’m still on the 5-2 diet – which is working very well.  I haven’t given up chocolate on my non-fasting days…but I do try to avoid eating TOO much.

My Thorntons Black Forest Gateau Easter Egg
However, I know how much you all love chocolate and so, I’ve sacrificed my own diet in the interest of checking out this ‘Black Forest Gateau’ egg from Thorntons.

It’s dark and rich.  The ‘black forest’ mixture of squishy dried cherries and chocolate curls complements the intense chocolate really well.  And, it’s a family sized egg.  Or at least one that you shouldn’t be eating all at once.

I broke into my sample egg and have tried just a little bit of it.  The egg itself is very thick and the chocolate obviously good quality, as you’d expect from Thorntons.

The best of this is that Thorntons have kept five more of these eggs to one side for London-Unattached Readers.  They should arrive looking rather smarter in a special display box

    The black forest egg is the one for me as I will actually be there working on Good Friday. What could be more poetic than eating your first egg in the place it was named.

    I’m loving the Trifle Egg (468g). Have you seen how they’ve described it? “gorgeous medley of munchable textures and sweet fruity flavours in a custard twist on our finest creamy white chocolate.” I’m dribbling just reading that. Mmmm…almonds too for the bit of crunch.

    Black Forest Gateau Egg (468g) looks really different so thats my choice – couldn’t tweet because it had too many characters

    Thorntons toffee eggs have always been my favourite, the ‘Tons ‘O’ Toffee Egg’ sounds delicious!

    I like the Milk Chocolate Bramble Bunny Model. lovely chocolate and I think great value for money. Think these are wht the children will be having this year.

    Hubby would definitely choose the Black Forest Gateau egg, so knowing that I’d be able to swipe some of his, I would go for the Full ‘O’ Fudge Egg, because he doesn’t like fudge so I’d get all of mine and some of his…!

  10. Christopher Powell says

    I saw the Black Forest egg via a post/re-tweet from someone I follow on twitter and had to pop over here to see, it looks absolutely lovely and I hope it would taste as good too.

    Definitely the Black Forest Gateau egg for me.

    Bramble and Lenny – great for my children who can never decide between white and milk chocolate so always have to have both!!

  12. Deborah P says

    Decisions, decisions….! I love all Thornton’s chocolate, but the Black Forest egg sounds really different and yummy, so would love to try it

    Well, I wouldn’t kick any of them out of bed for making crummies, but if you push me for a favourite it would have to be the White Chocolate Charlie Chick Model, because it is just sooooooo cute :)
