    Hi Page, I've had to get it out and measure it! - The Egg of course.



    It measures 170mm x 110mm or approx 6.75" x 4.25". I shall be sharing it with my Mom, who like myself, prefers dark chocolates to milk. Looking forward to Easter, you have a happy one.

    Hi Page, hope you had a happy Easter, and a happy one I hope to forum members, and non-members alike.
    Here are the contents of the egg, delicious as it was. Well worth the money.



    The small blue eggs had lovely soft centres, and there are assorted truffles, and plain chocolates in the package. A real chocolate lover's delight.

    Had to get my Christmas chocolate supply. In Birmingham UK; there is nowhere better to go than Chouchoute (see previous link), for proper chocolates. Oh yes, these will definitely be enjoyed this yuletide.

    A Merry Christmas to you all.

    In the USA you can't go wrong with See's Candies, Harry and Davids chocolate covered cherries, Hershey's Christmas Bells!

    Last week, made my Easter pilgramage to Chouchoute. In The Great Western Acrcade, Birmingham UK. Bought my 500g Easter Egg. I got my next door neighbour some Easter chocolates in gratitude for doing my shopping twice a week. Treated myself again with Chouchoutes truffles. It's well worth a visit in Birmingham UK if you have a sweet tooth.

    It is Easter Sunday. Time to sample my Easter Goodies. My egg, and what is inside it. Yum yum! (All from Chouchoute).







    Oh yes! I'm eating a few of the small eggs right now. (Plain chocolate, my choice). Well worth the wait. If I were a little kid, I'd probably scoff the lot, and be sick
    afterwards. It's tempting, but I'll enjoy at my own pace. Chouchoute are quality!

    Those look tasty. I like the plain too, the darker the better. I brought my brother some Belgian chocolates today, he's not much into Easter eggs but loves chocolates. I did have a few, they were quite nice.

    Wednesday 09/12/2015 was Chocolate Christmas Shopping Time for me. Chouchoute at The Great Western Arcade, Birmingham UK. The provisions in question were:

    A box of chocolates for my next-door neighbour who does my shopping twice a week. She prefers milk chocolates to plain,so I know the spec. Pierre, owner of Chouchoute said did I want the deluxe
    package? Of course, my neighbour deserves such treatment. For £22 there were 16 chocolates, gift wrapped.

    For a Bangladeshi friend of mine who provides me with fish curry take-aways. He gave me £20 for a selection of milk chocolates. (Non alcohol, no marzipan, no mint). This pack is not shown on the photographs, but in a similar box to the one on the left in the images below.

    For myself. A box of 20 dark truffles (one of my favourites). Then a pack of assorted plain chocolates with which I intend to enjoy over the Christmas period.

    From L – R.
    Box of 20 dark truffles. Box of 16 milk chocolates gift wrapped for next door neighbour. Pack of assorted plain chocolates.





    I shall be looking forward to Christmas, eating these chocolates, and other stuff I have bought for the festive period.
