This fine looking golden wrapped rabbit was found sitting buy the Easter goodies in WH Smiths. He’s a very smart looking bunny, with flowers decorating the egg resting on his tummy and a nice decoration on the base too.
When I first saw it I assumed it was another pure milk chocolate bunny, but this is a new one made by Ferrero and as such has a little twist. Although it is still a bunny shell, packed into the thick milk chocolate are loads of hazelnut pieces which make it a little bit different from a lot of the other chocolate rabbits on the market.
The minute you unwrap the bunny the nuts are clearly shown, generously speckling the outer chocolate. It’s no secret that I rather like nuts and chocolate, so it will be no surprise that this particular chocolate bunny went down rather well! The chocolate is quite soft, but the nuts give it a nice mix of textures and they add a little bit of a crunch to the chocolate shell.
The chocolate flavour is sweet and creamy but with the added hazelnuts it does suddenly become very reminiscent of the outer shell of a Ferrero Roche. I thoroughly enjoyed munching on the this chocolate bunny and found the addition of the nuts to be rather genius. It makes it something a bit different on the market, and as a nuts fan it was right up my street.
