As the United Kingdom’s love affair with avocados continues, British grocer Waitrose has revealed a fabulous Easter egg for 2018. With its dark chocolate shell, white chocolate with natural green coloring and cocoa dusted ‘stone'(pit), the egg-citing chocolate egg looks just like the real thing.
The shell and stone(pit) are Belgian chocolate (made with 70% cocoa), while the white chocolate middle uses natural coloring to imitate the green flesh of the fruit. Despite looking just like a giant avocado, chocoholics can rest-assured that the egg is made using 100% chocolate, with no avocado flavoring – it tastes like chocolate, not avocado!
Kate Kind, Waitrose Product Developer, said: “Inspired by the continued trend for all things avocado, we wanted to create a fun addition to our Easter range and are really excited about the launch of our new Easter egg. If you’re an ‘avo-lover’ with a sweet tooth, this unique twist on the classic egg makes the perfect Easter treat and will provide a fun talking point among family and friends this season.”
