Grown-up Easter Eggs with Monty Bojangles

By | March 20, 2016

Boing! The Easter Bunny will be bouncing around shortly, dishing out chocolate treats for young and old – after all, who doesn’t like chocolate? 

There’s such a vast range of Easter goodies to choose from but – if you’re like us and – want to choose for your partner/parents etc, the standard kiddy eggs can seem a bit limiting.

Monty Bojangles sent us some Easter goodies to try and how could we resist?

Firstly, there was the fun of sending Bunny-loving D off to find them..

And then there was the testing, a universally popular part!

Each egg has a hollow milk chocolate shell, accompanied by a bag of truffles.  

The chocolate shell is creamy and not over-poweringly sweet, just right for palates.

The truffles are something else!  The smell of the truffles as you open the foil bag is wonderful and they taste just as good as they smell.  There’s a cocoa dusting on each truffle and then the flavour hits you subtlety.

Quite a few truffle flavours to choose from too:

Scrumple Nutty (yellow box) with “crunchy hazelnut cocoa dusted truffles”,

Berry Bubbly (red box) has “raspberry and popping candy cocoa dusted truffles”,

Flutter Scotch (turquoise box” includes “butterscotch and sea salt cocoa dusted truffles”


Choccy Scoffy (purple box) with “divinely chocolately cocoa dusted truffles”.  

Very different flavours from the standard jelly sweets or buttons and quite sophisticated I thought, at a reasonable price (they’re in my local Waitrose at £6 apiece).

The decoration on the boxes has a kind of vintage feel with illustrations of flowers, birds, butterflies and old-age transport with a cat in Victoriana riding them.

D and T loved the chocolate eggs and, for Hubbie and I, the truffles were extremely tasty and just a little bit moreish!  

My favourite was the Choccy Scoffy, very closely followed by the Berry Bubbly, Hubbie is a bit of a toffee/nut fiend so he enjoyed the Flutter Scotch and Scrumple Nutty ones.

The allergy advice is that the eggs “may contain traces of barley, eggs, nuts, peanuts, sesame and wheat.  Suitable for vegetarians”.

The calorie content (but does this count at Easter?!?) is circa 590 kcal per 100g, the egg being 120g and truffles 80g.

Look out for the eggs in your local supermarket, further information can be found at, Twitter at @montybojangles and Facebook whoismontybojangles.

I must admit, before we were sent the eggs to review, I’d seen the boxes of truffles in the aisle and thought “mmmm, they sound yummy” but hadn’t given them a try up until now.  

Recommended from all quarters here, the children for the hollow egg and us parents for the truffles.

Disclaimer: we were sent four eggs to provide an honest review, our words and views have not been influenced in any way.
