Thorntons For Easter

Well with Mothers day just hours ago, the next excuse to indulge in gorgeous chocolate is not far away! Thorntons Easter range is the place to peruse with something for all chocaholics like me.

They totally surprised me by sending me one of the new Easter Great British Puds Eggs, The Eton Mess its a really impressive egg, it reminds me of a Faberge Egg with the almost jewel encrusted raspberry and meringue pieces on the front of the egg.

It is Thornton's chocolate and if like me you are a fan, you know its good. The chocolate is strawberry flavoured, very sweet and not for wolfing down. I did try for review purposes of course.
If you like something different from a standard chocolate egg, love puddings, this could be the range for you.
It does remind me of Eton Mess especially the chewy pieces on the outside.

Thorntons have teamed up with Given To Distracting Others for one folllower to win the Brish Puds, Eton Mess Egg look out for the giveaway coming soon!

I have my eye on the Lemon Meringue Pie Egg for Easter Sunday, as you know if a regular reader, lemon is my favourite flavour. Thorntons describe it as  A stunning Easter egg made from delicious, thick Thorntons white chocolate full of zesty lemon meringue flavours, with real meringue pieces decorating the front.

Right now there is 3 for 2 on some of the eggs so a chance to stock up early and save money
