Wonka Chocolate Golden Eggs

Easter is just around the corner, and that means stores are stacked high with candy. I personally love this time of year, when Peeps and jellybeans and chocolate bunnies are available in large quantities. I swung by my local Target, and they had all their Easter candy on sale. I ended up with two bags of chocolate eggs. These retail for $2.49 but were on sale at 2 for $4.

Remember that scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory where gigantic geese lay golden chocolate eggs? These real-life versions aren’t as huge as those ostrich-sized monsters, but they are marketed as golden eggs, which just shows the power of pop culture. Each egg is stamped with the Nestle label, which was kind of disappointing. Wouldn’t it have been better if they were stamped “Wonka” instead? (Besides, I didn’t think geese could create labels on their eggs?) I loved the golden color of the foil wrappers, though. Very eyecatching.

Anyway, the eggs are standard Nestle chocolate with graham cracker pieces inside, but it was hard for me to notice the crunchy cookie bits. I thought that this was because there weren’t that many bits in each egg, but I tried another one, this time sucking the chocolate off. This revealed more of the cookie bits than I imagined were in there, but I think they just crumble too easily and don’t give enough contrast in texture next to the chocolate. Also, these eggs had a sweet, creamy aftertaste, almost like coconut. I think this might be from the cookie bits too. So these were pleasant enough, but if you’re looking for something with a nice crunch, these aren’t it.

Nestle Nest Eggs - Crunch w/ Peanut Butter

Nestle is selling a number of different kinds of chocolate eggs under the Nest Eggs brand. Nest Eggs? Nestle? Oh, those clever marketing folk! Nest Eggs come in four different varieties, based on their popular candy bars: regular milk chocolate, Crunch, Butterfinger, and Nestle with Creamy Caramel. The Crunch variety was available with peanut butter, and since I love the combo of peanut butter and chocolate, I snagged this bag.

The eggs (wrapped in different colors of pastel foil) look exactly like the Wonka eggs (with “Nestle” stamped on each) and the chocolate is the same, but what a difference in flavor and texture! One half of the chocolate egg contains a dollop of peanut butter creme, the other has the crispy rice of a Crunch bar. These are amazingly good! I loved the play between the soft peanut butter and the Crunch side, and the chocolate melds the two textures together pretty well. This isn’t really a chocolate to be sucked on. It needs to be chewed so you can experience the candy in its entirety. I’d definitely get these again.
