I have been seeing these bags of Ferrero eggs on the shelves in a lot of places this year. They come in a small bag like the Lindt Lindors but in a fun, pastel colored package. They are described on the front as “crispy eggs with a creamy hazelnut filling”. I like the “European” feel of these, they remind me of a Kinder Bueno, but in egg shaped form. I’m really drawn to that sort of thing, so I nabbed a bag for the blog.
The bag holds a lot of eggs. So I felt like I got a good deal for the price that I paid for them. The eggs are small, and I’m trying to think of a size comparison. They’re smaller than a golf ball, but bigger than the mini Cadbury creme eggs you see this time of year. I’d say they’re around the size of a kumquat? I think I’ll go with that.
Each egg is individually wrapped in foil, with a gold top and bottom with a colored band with the Ferrero logo on it. Unwrapping the egg, it has a beautiful medium brown color. It smells very sweet and milky. I get intense notes of cream and caramel in there. The aroma is just heavenly.
My first bite reveals that there’s a wafer shell just inside the chocolate covering, so you get this nice crisp when you break into it. The texture contrast is really nice. The hazelnut interior is creamy and delicious. It’s like Nutella on steroids. It’s intensely flavorful and nutty, with a great chocolate flavor. Overall with the chocolate shell and the wafer, this little egg packs a whollop in the flavor department.
They’re so flavorful and luxurious, I find that I can only eat one of these at a time. They’re heavenly with a cup of coffee in the morning. I can see these as being a nice little addition to Easter Brunch. I managed to try the other variant of these, the chocolate filled egg, thanks to a co-works candy generosity. It was good, but it wasn’t chocolately. I certainly think that the hazelnut is the better flavor of the two.
