I have had quite a few questions about chocolate and Easter eggs, so I have put together the more asked questions with answers. If you have any questions please do feel free to drop me a message.
A few people have asked about buying cases of Easter eggs and bulk buying, for parties and Easter events.
chocolatebuttons sell Easter eggs by the case; different eggs are available in different amounts the more you buy the cheaper the eggs are per egg – bulk buying Easter eggs can get you almost wholesale prices on some brands.
For example a case of 9 medium Smarties eggs will cost £34.20 (£3.80 per egg) – these are also sold in a case of 90 for £284.85 (£3.16 per egg).
The biggest Easter eggs, in height, are the “Giant Eggs” from Montezuma’s, enormous 24cm tall chocolate eggs in a choice of milk or dark chocolate.
Both eggs are hollow and weigh in at 600g each and cost £34.99 each and both have fun “fried egg” decorations on the front, the giant eggs are part of the Easter range at Montezuma’s.
The largest eggs, in weight, are the Hotel Chocolat Ostrich Easter Eggs. Huge Easter eggs each with a selection of chocolates, one is milk chocolate and the other is half milk chocolate and half dark chocolate.
Both massive eggs weigh in at 1.1kg, which includes the thick chocolate shells and the chocolates with the Ostrich eggs. They are called Ostrich eggs because they are the size of real ostrich eggs, a massive nine inches or 22.3cm tall.
The Milk Chocolate Ostrich Easter egg is made with 40% milk chocolate studded with cookie pieces, crispy puffed rice and chunks of white chocolate.
The Half and Half Ostrich Easter egg is a dark chocolate shell made with 70% dark chocolate, and a milk chocolate shell cast 50% milk chocolate.
I try label all the eggs with all the information possible because – I have four vegetarian friends, two vegan, one friend who is lactose intolerant and a relation that is allergic to some nuts. So I know how hard it can be to find food and products that meet specific dietary needs, especially chocolate. Subsequently I label all the eggs on my site as best I can.
Eggs that have nuts embedded in the shell or in the chocolates and the bars that come with the egg.
