Have always walked past displays of fancy chocolate eggs in shiny crinkly wrapping paper before Easter and wanted to buy myself loads of different chocolate eggs in various flavours – blame it on a serious sweet tooth and an obsession with easter eggs. So when Harry Hopalot and his white chocolate avataar found their way to my house this year courtesy Thorntons Chocolates you can imagine my excitement. Armed with his magic bag and the support from his friends, he has hops faster than the wind to deliver us our perfect Easter.
But then I was in the grips of a rather strange predicament – how on earth was I to get myself to become so heartless and BITE poor adorable Harry’s ear off? Well, he is made of chocolate you know so I closed my eyes and chewed off a large bit of his ear! The first victim was milk chocolate Harry and then it was the turn of his white chocolate cousin. Have never much liked white chocolate but in the bunny form, it wasn’t too bad! Only regret – why are they hollow 😉
It wasn’t easy choosing one from the tempting array of various chocolate eggs and bunnies that Thorntons has on offer, like Thorntons’ range of Dessert Eggs – the new Raspberry Cheesecake Egg and the new Fudge Brownie Egg made from smooth dark chocolate and crammed with fudge, walnut & brownie biscuit pieces in the shell. There’s a quirky twist to the Easter eggs too with the new Squeggs – quite simply squashed eggs. There are two in the range; Cookies & Cream and Cinnamon & Waffle what’s more – they also come in a little treat lolly too!
Thorntons has treats for all ages and occasions and their pretty boxes are just the things when you want to make someone smile. Sometimes it is ok to just go get yourself a pamper box of chocolatey treats, hide them in a tin, and pop one when you feel the blues coming on – just make sure your stash is hidden away from prying eyes and little hands 😉
Am not sure it’s even ok to think this but if there are any strayt easter chocolate bunnies on display after Easter am going to go get myself a few and gobble them while watching some legal drama on the telly. Makes me feel more brave watching the smart lawyers in their designer suits argue their cases while I munch on illegal quantities of chocolate in my P.J’s …hummmm… On that note , Good Night and hope all of you had a brilliant Easter Sunday and a relaxed long weekend – no don’t panic you still have Bank Holiday Monday to get over the hangover that you are probably working on right now 😉
