Advantages Good value, recyclable packaging, lovely chocolate
Disadvantages It's chocolate, need I say more?
The Easter egg consisted of a fairly thick, hollow milk chocolate egg and two full sized Kit Kat Chunky chocolate bars. The weight of the egg itself is approx 135g and the Kit Kat bars are 50g each.
As stated above, my mother purchased this Easter egg as part of a supermarket special offer, so she paid £1 for it. The manufacturer's recommended price for the egg was £1.99.
The outer cardboard box bears the Kit Kat logo, the Nestle trade name in a heart shaped lozenge and a picture of the Kit Kat chunky bars. The main colour is red and the carton projects a bright, cheerful and modern image. All nutritional information, manufacturer information and further details on how to go about recycling Nestle's Easter egg carton, are on the sides and rear of the package.
Chocolate, as most chocolate lovers will know, can vary enormously, but this Easter egg was produced with a reasonably good quality chocolate which certainly shows in the taste and flavour of the egg. The chocolate taste does of course depend on the cocoa solid mass used in the production and whilst this is certainly not one of your 70% cocoa chocolates, having 25% cocoa solid does put it above some of the other Easter eggs I've seen on the market.Nutrition values
No confectionery product is ever going to be healthy and with this in mind, I am not going to list each and every ingredient and nutritional value! Suffice to say, each Kit Kat chunky bar contains 263 calories, 31g carbohydrate, 14.3g fat and 2.6g protein. The egg contains 800 calories in total, with 5.6g protein, 61g carbohydrate and 29g fat per 100g.
As I stated earlier not a healthy option, but what confectionery is?!
An enjoyable Easter egg which I scoffed with relish! Hardly health or diet concious, but as a now and again treat, a very pleasant chocolate egg and accompanying chocolate bars.
Would I buy again? For myself, no I would not, but as an Easter gift for family or friends, then I feel you would have to go a long way to beat this particular Easter egg for value and quality.
