▫️Easter Egg Graveyard 2/3 ▫️
I am certain many will be discounted to the joy of chocolate lovers everywhere, who care not a jot, the form their cocoa fix takes, but surely not all of them, what happens to the rest? Are these eggs melted down and reformed into other novelty shaped items? Could their shelf life be extended to become penguins and Santa’s for the Christmas season? Perhaps repackaged into items for ’s themed parties that improvise on the half egg shape, stick a sail in for the Owl and the Pussy Cat or the Wind in the Willows? Or better still a saucy morsel for seaside novelty shops, edible bra anyone?
This is all a long way from the original Easter eggs produced by Mr Cadbury in the 1870’s. These eggs were made with dark chocolate and unlike today, manufactured on a moderate scale, which may have avoided egg obsolescence and thus appealed to his Quaker sensibilities.
Today many palates prefer high fat and sugar content in their chocolate, creating a different texture and sweetness which may taste good but also results in a high calorie hit and less Cocoa content, which is where some nutritional benefits are found, if your chocolate has a higher cocoa content, around 70%, it usually has less fat and sugar and can also bestow some health benefits.
