Best luxury Easter Egg?

    I haven't treated myself to an Easter Egg for a couple of years now. As I've been deprived of this yummy chocolatey treat, I've decided to go the whole hog and buy a luxury one this year.

    I was in John Lewis earlier and they had an amzing selection of yummy and expensive eggs, just wanted to see other people's opinions before I buy.

    The one I had in my hand was an extra thick 'You Crack me Up' egg by Hotel Chocolat. Looked amazing, but it had a £26.00 price tag...

    There was also these James' Chocolate Cupcake eggs which looked pretty good for a tenner too, but I've never tried James' chocolate before.

    Then there's Godiva, Coco Bean Company, Charbonnel et Walker...

    Any suggestions from fellow choccie lovers much appreciated!

    Hotel chocolat always delivers on quality :3
    The little filled egg selections are meant to be divine

    The James cupcake eggs look nice, but I read quite a few foodie reviews last year which said they were a real let down.

    Montezuma are a good buy if you like purist, dark chocolate, but they tend to lack novelty easter factors- like additional flavours/individual chocolates, and focus on the egg alone.

    Charbonnel et walker have prestige, but again, they are known for their champagne truffles more than anything else, and the egg itself is likely to be ordinary.

    I'd go for Hotel Chocolat

    No need for the discussion, you got it right in your first post- Hotel Chocolat own this game.


    I got bought one of their £26 eggs about 4 years ago back (*puts on hipster glasses*) before they were popular, I've bought myself one every year since. Godly stuff.

    You could wait until after Easter. Last year, I got four [one for each of us at home] of the £26 Hotel Chocolat eggs for the price of one in the post-Easter sale.

    You've inspired me, OP. I don't think I've had an easter egg since I was about 8, but I'm going to get myself one.

    I walk through John Lewis chocolate section every day and keep a close eye on it (and regularly spend the last of my money there) so I am well aquainted with the choices you are talking about

    Last year I gave up chocolate for Lent and by the time Easter came I had stocked up 13 eggs in my wardrobe. Oh the shame. I would recommend Hotel Chocolat, their eggs are amazing. "You crack me up" is the one I'm going to buy myself this year And I'll hint to my mum that I would appreciate the eton mess egg sandwich. Yum yum. Every year I get the same..."are you not too old for an easter egg now?" NO MUM. I don't care if I'm 23, I still need an egg.
    James chocolates look pretty but are a bit hit-and miss - not really worth the money usually. Their white choc is good though.
    Charbonnel et Walker is good for champagne truffles but apart fom that, nothing noteworthy.
    Cocoa Bean Co. is pretty good.
    Godiva is nothing special, wouldn't bother going there if I was you.

    Also in John Lewis you can get Rococco and Cococo - both of these are fantastic companies. They are pretty pricy but I think it's worth it. Personally I'm waiting til the day after Easter when everything will be half price
    Enjoy!!

    Hotel Chocolat are incredible. I know where I'll be headed this Easter.

    The cheaper crap (nestle etc) is just not real chocolate, it tastes cheap and plasticky. :mad:

    Oh my god, I need that right now. The most dangerous photo you could have posted.

    I'd also add Marks & Spencer - their chocolate is amazing, particularly their speckled eggs. At £1.05, I'd be happy with 25 bags of Speckled Eggs.

    Gofre is right, Hotel Chocolat totally own this game.

    However, I saw the most AMAZING Easter Egg in the Choccywoccydoohdah shop in Brighton a couple of years back. It was humongous and decorated really intricately - a thing of pure beauty. I haven't got a picture of it but here's a similar (not quite so beautiful) egg they made to give you an idea of the size. Unfortunately it had a suitably ginormous price tag to go with it... it was £750! :eek3:
