La Maison du Chocolat Praline Mini Eggs

Bag of La Maison du Chocolat Praline Mini Eggs

I was convinced I had tried these mini eggs before and I had – last year when they came presented in a coffret (that’s “box” to you and me!). This time they’ve sent me a fairly substantial 280g bag which contains about thirty-three praline mini eggs of three different types. The golden-wrapped mini eggs have a milk chocolate shell with the praline centre, the orange is its dark chocolate version and the light green is a more crunchy milk chocolate mini egg.

What was interesting is that the dark isn’t actually all that bitter, there’s more of a rounded raisin flavour to it which may be more to do with the fact that it only uses a minimum of 48% cocoa solids than anything else. I actually did like it a great deal, but mainly because the praline centre was more sweet than salty – as they can be.

The milk chocolate mini egg was also limited in intensity but did manage to also offer a rum and raisin-type flavour to it which was accompanied by a delightful soft texture that contributed greatly to the experience. Whilst the crunchy milk chocolate egg offers a more traditional feel for those that like a bit of resistance and more intense flavour. To be honest, I preferred the smoother ones in the bag, but at least you have a choice.

And now the price – Nothing at La Maison du Chocolat is cheap, but you do get very good chocolate praline mini eggs for your £12.50. If you were tempted to buy some you can via their website or via their store at 46 Piccadilly (opposite Fortnum & Mason), at Harrods or Selfridges on Oxford Street.

  • Unsurprising that La Maison pulled out some quality Easter eggs. And I have a soft spot or two (or ten) in my heart for praline. Luckily, it looks like these are also sold at the U.S. boutiques.
