I picked an egg that was packaged separately in a regular box and paid for it. To be honest, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was expecting or what I thought I was getting but I wanted it. So I bought it and while we were checking out, we had a great conversation with the cashier. The egg shell for the Fazer chocolate egg is an actual egg shell. They hollow out the egg through the base of the egg and then fill it with chocolate, then paint over the hole so that you can’t tell that it’s been hollowed out.
We went back to the hotel and I decided it was time for the dessert. We sat down and I pulled the egg out of the box and it ended up being significantly heavier than I thought it would be. I think in my head, it was an egg shell with some chocolate on the inside and it was going to be hollow on the inside of the actual chocolate egg. I took the egg and decided that the only way to crack the egg would be to hit it against a table so I did. It barely cracked the shell but it cracked it enough that I could actually start trying to peel away the shell. I thought that hitting it against the table would crack the shell similar to that of a hard boiled egg, but it wasn’t as satisfying as the hard boiled egg. It was almost a dull thud when I hit the egg against the table.
I peeled away the egg shell and then what I had in my hand was pure happiness. It was a solid chocolate egg staring at me and made of the most delicious Finnish chocolate. I wasn’t entirely sure how to eat it so I just took a bite and it was amazing. The Fazer chocolate is sweet but not overbearingly sweet, it’s the perfect consistency, almost the extent that it’s a nougat chocolate mix. The outside of the egg was harder than the interior but as soon as you broke through the first layer, it was a perfect consistency and melted in your mouth.
As much as I enjoyed the egg, I ate about half of it and then decided to save the rest for the next day. If you ever get a chance to try this egg, I would highly recommend it. Totally worth it.
