Thornton’s Praline Small Egg (Thornton’s)
As someone who is known to be quite a strong fan of nuts in chocolate, I’m sure you can imagine that I was rather looking forward to trying this small egg from Thornton’s. The egg is filled with a decent dollop of nutty praline, and the milk chocolate shell has pieces of almond embed into it too, for the nut fans.
I was rather impressed by the shell of the egg, the milk chocolate is sweet, rich and creamy and the almond pieces add a nice hint of nuts and a bit of texture. The praline inside was good too, but not as silky as in a Lindt egg. However it was smooth and had a full nut flavour, and brought the whole item together nicely. A nice little treat from Thornton’s, and a nice alternative to the Cadbury’s Creme Eggs.
