Green & Black’s Butterscotch Milk Chocolate Mini Eggs (Waitrose)
Yes I’m afraid the Easter products are appearing, and I have no shame in writing about these things so early. I realise that Green & Black make a Butterscotch bar of chocolate, but I haven’t tried it before so this flavour is completely new to me.
Inside the packet are mini eggs made of solid chocolate, with butterscotch pieces and rice crispies inside, and each one is individually foil wrapped.
Despite being a milk chocolate by definition, the chocolate within this egg has a wonderfully strong cocoa flavour. The depth in flavour is lovely too, dark, rich, bitter and sweet they are an absolute pleasure to eat.
The rice crispies do deliver a light crunch in the texture, but don’t really add to the taste. The butterscotch isn’t perhaps as strong as it could be either, and people wanting a really sweet hit might be disappointed, but I found the subtle flavour rather clever and enjoyable.
Lovely mini eggs, and I thoroughly recommend them.
