To get ready for Easter, YP cadets Benjamin Oh, Veronica Lin, and Lyndon Fan tried five of the sweetest holiday treats. Here’s what they discovered ...
Lindt’s chocolate Easter bunny: HK$37.90
Benjamin: This one comes in a delicate bunny shape. The chocolate itself is rather thin and sweet, but it is very creamy, and melts in your mouth.
Veronica: Milk chocolate was invented in Switzerland, and these golden bunnies certainly do their native country proud with their extremely creamy and milky taste!
Lyndon: This rabbit is very sweet & creamy, but the shell is a bit too thin in some places.
M&S chocolate rabbit lollipop: HK$29
Benjamin: This cute rabbit lollipop even comes with its own pink felt ears. It’s thick and firm, but the chocolate is a tad too dry.
Veronica: This cute chocolate lollipop instantly melts in your mouth!
Lyndon: This lollipop might look like a simple candy, but the thick milk chocolate is fabulous.
Jacquot’s Funny EGG Amu’s Oeuf: HK$39.90
Benjamin: It’s like a Kinder egg, except that it’s filled with colourful M&M-like bits. The chocolate is soft and a bit too chalky.
Veronica: Getting confetti bombed by a chocolate Easter egg sounds amazing!
The packaging of these chocolate eggs is unique: it looks exactly like a regular egg carton!
Lyndon: This sweet chocolate Easter egg contains its own Easter egg hidden inside: the hollow chocolate eggshell contains crunchy M&M-like candies! Surely worth it.
See’s Candies’ chocolate Easter egg: HK$28
Benjamin: Inside the egg, there’s a white chocolate bird that seems completely unrelated to Easter. It’s mostly mild and quite palatable.
Veronica: Free the birdie! Who would have ever thought that there’s a chocolate birdie inside? Oops, didn’t mean to spoil the surprise but ... this chocolate really is the whole package.
Lyndon: Another Easter egg with an Easter egg: an unexpected white chocolate bird hidden inside the milk chocolate egg.
Waitrose’ Belgian milk chocolate egg with jelly eggs: HK$58
Benjamin: This one seemed disappointing. I mean, it’s a HK$58 dollar egg, but it’s hollow inside. However, it’s the best by far, leaving a light, pleasant chocolatey aftertaste.
Veronica: Trying to take a bite out of this is a bit of a hassle. But smashing it with your fist will definitely boost your adrenaline and get you into the holiday spirit.
Lyndon: Even though this egg looks enormous, most of it is empty space, and the candies inside are hard and nasty.
