Lindt are probably better known for their novelty chocolates, the Lindt Gold Bunny at Easter and the gold animals at Christmas, and Lindt Lindor chocolate truffles, but they also make other chocolates and it is nice to see this reflected by their new Easter egg the Heavenly Hazelnut Egg.
The Lindt Heavenly Hazelnut Egg is one of three Easter eggs which have been added to the Lindt range for Easter 2013.
Lindt Heavenly Hazelnut Easter Egg
The Lindt Heavenly Hazelnut Easter Egg is now the largest egg in the range, measuring approximately 160mm tall and 120mm wide, and is presented in a bright yellow box with windows so you can see the ribbon tied egg inside. A milk chocolate egg is rolled in crushed hazelnuts and covered in another layer of chocolate to create, a rather beautiful looking, luxury Easter egg.
A heavenly smooth milk chocolate egg, encrusted with roasted Piedmont hazelnuts then generously coated with a final chocolate layer to create [Lindt's] thickest, most decadent Easter Egg yet.
Even though the Lindt Heavenly Hazelnut Easter egg is new for 2013 it has already been approved by Good Housekeeping Institute, with a score of 84/100 ranking it second out of 193 eggs!
£19.99, 350g of luxury Lindt Eater egg, available from The Chocolate Trading Company.
Lindt Lindor Easter Eggs
The biggest of the Lindt Lindor Easter Eggs is the Luxury Lindt Egg, a milk chocolate egg in wrapped gold foil with a red ribbon round the egg and nine Lindt Lindor mini eggs, presented in a red box.
Also new for Easter 2013 is the Limited Edition Lindor Egg, a gold foiled milk chocolate egg with Lindt Lindor balls in classic milk, Irish Cream flavour & Stracciatella. The Limited Edition Lindt Lindor egg is the only Lindt Lindor egg in a green box.
