Valrhona sent me over some of their Chocolate Easter Eggs to sample and review. As you can see, they come in a pretty little box and are wrapped in classic Easter candy colors.
The milk and dark mix, which they sent to me, contains three each of four different eggs.
The chocolate egg wrapped in blue is a sweet, milk chocolate gianduja with a wonderful smooth melt and caramel flavor which surrounds a crispy, brittle of sorts. It is a bit nutty and wonderfully flaky — a nice surprise!
The other milk chocolate, wrapped in vibrant yellow-green, has a rich, smooth caramelly, chocolate filling. Extremely satisfying.
The green wrapped egg is dark chocolate with a wonderfully complex chocolate filling. Bright, but with a earthy finish, there is a lovely ripe red fruit flavor on the tongue as the chocolate melts, leaving behind a slight dryness in the mouth.
Finally, the pink foil covers another dark chocolate egg, this time filled with raspberry filling. The fruit flavor is sweet and bright, only slightly jammy. The ripe fruit flavor pairs well with the dark chocolate, balancing out the sweetness.
These were a wonderful treat and of the high quality you would expect from Valrhona. You can purchase them through Valrhona's online shop.
