The EASTER Excitement Begins Here! Easter is undeniably one of the most exciting times for those of us who love chocolate. And, as a chocolate maker, it also gives us the opportunity to show off our extended Easter Family. As you’ll see from the family snaps, they’re a good looking bunch and varied too! All of which means that you’re sure to find the perfect egg for everyone – from handy-sized Egg Sandwiches and our renowned Extra Thick Eggs, to the simply mammoth Ostrich Eggs and more. That’s as well as lots of Easter gifts that are perfect for chocolate hunts and family fun and games. So, whatever excitement you have planned for Easter, I do hope we can help.

The original



When we first started making Easter eggs we talked to the ‘experts’.They told us the trick lay in making the shells as thin as possible so as to use as little chocolate as possible. We disagreed and our Extra Thick Eggs were born – with our renowned, luxuriously thick chocolate shells and exciting Easter chocolates hiding inside. 147mm high. 330-520g approx.


Our Extra Thick eggs, more than 3 times thicker than an average Easter egg.

the Eggsibitionist™ With both shells in our house 40% milk chocolate and 12 gorgeously decorated mini eggs hiding inside – including salted liquid caramel, melt-away hazelnut praline, silky truffles, chocolate brownie and more. Alcohol-free.

An egg made with two of our most precious chocolates, featuring rare cocoa from our own Rabot Estate plantation on Saint Lucia and Chuao beans from Venezuela. One shell is cast from the latest harvest of our Rabot Estate 65% dark chocolate – with red fruit flavour notes that slowly diminish to leave shiraz, black olives and spices, with an exceptionally long finish. And the other is cast from sought-after Chuao 70% dark – with mellow flavours of roasted nuts, cream and caramel, raisins and malt with a long complex finish. And inside you’ll find 10 super premium Purist Pralines, made from the prized and extremely tasty Piedmont hazelnuts from Italy, balanced with the red berry fruitiness of Saint Lucia 65% Dark.
