I must say I wasn’t the biggest fan of their chocolate truffles and I was glad to be given a second chance with their mini Easter eggs. I’m partial to the odd mini egg, but to place these Galler Mini Easter eggs in the same category as either the Nestle Smarties Mini Eggs or the Cadbury’s Mini Eggs would be a huge crime against chocolate. The punishment: banishment to a chocolate free land, never to return again.
In each bag you get ten (ish) mini eggs in a variety of flavours. In my bag I had two dark chocolate coated eggs, one in the red wrapping and one in the green. The red one had a darker praline filling with the green one with a much lighter praline. There was also a lilac-wrapped mini egg which had a white chocolate shell and a golden-wrapped egg had a milk chocolate mini egg.
The first I tried was the dark chocolate mini egg with the lighter praline filling. This one had more of a peanut butter flavour than the others but held it well against the dark chocolate and had a very pronounced salt flavour that brought the hazelnut tones through. The texture was more granular, but still fantastic.
I next tried the lilac-wrapped white chocolate mini egg. I normally don’t go for white chocolate, but in this case I’d buy a bag of these on their own. They’re soft, delicate with an almost flowery edge to the flavour but with a touch of saltiness at the very end. Worth trying!
And now for the milk chocolate mini egg. This one had more of a sweet nose to it and more of a stiff resistance in the mouth which was fully occupied with the dullest tones. You’ll actually find parts of it seeping into its deepest recesses.
Lastly, the dark chocolate mini egg with the dark praline. It felt like the shell on this one was thicker and a touch more bitter – but it’s difficult to tell given their size. It did feel like there was more kick and more chocolate through the middle. I could easily devour a bag of these too as the flavours combined to give an overal wonderful experience.
