I can't quite believe how quickly this year is going; its virtually nearly Easter - only a few more weeks until we can all tuck into the delights of chocolate eggs + various chocolate spring creatures!
Cocoa Mountain is a company we haven't reviewed yet on Lot-O-Choc so I was more than happy to give one of their Easter Eggs a whirl when contacted; Cocoa Mountain are an artisan style chocolate company with shops around Scotland - but you can also order online and have them posted out to you with lots of their prices including P&P!
The white chocolate Easter Egg that was sent out to me looked delightful when it arrived; a suitably themed mountain shaped box in the design of the company's logo contained a delicious looking white chocolate egg drizzled with milk chocolate
White chocolate can be either a hit/miss with me - all too often I have spoken of the horrendous burning sensation that can come from white chocolate being overly sweet; to my delight this wasn't the case with Cocoa Mountain's Easter Egg.
You can tell it's good quality and has been made to a superb standard, the white chocolate is creamy, buttery with wonderful vanilla hints and never reaches that awful burning point. Obviously you are still going to need a sweet tooth to enjoy it; but its a lovely white chocolate that has been used to make the egg.
This is reinforced by how wonderfully it melts in the mouth; its a really creamy good melt with no sense of waxiness to it whatsoever.
If you're sick of all the commercial eggs floating around and want to try something that's a bit higher quality but still a delicious treat then I'd definitely take a look at Cocoa Mountain's website - not only do they sell this white chocolate variety but a dark and milk also; depending on your taste preference.
Taste - 7.3/10 -A good quality white chocolate, creamy with wonderful vanilla tones.
Texture - 7.7/10 - Creamy, smooth and melts in the mouth well.
Appearance - 8.3/10 - I love the presentation of the egg; classy and sophisticated with the mountain shaped box making it stand out.
Price - 6.9/10- These are priced at £6 an egg but you can only buy them as a pack of 2 or 4 on the website for £12 or £24 respectively.
Overall - 7.5/10 - A tasty Easter treat with a hint of sophistication.
WHO FOR?I wouldn't say this was one for the kids but I'm sure many an adult alike would adore this.
WHERE TO BUY?You can get this from any of Cocoa Mountain's shops around Scotland or order it online from their website.
