Easter review and giveaway: Ostrich Easter Egg from Hotel Chocolat

The Easter holidays are hurtling towards us, and so do thoughts of scoffing a disgraceful amount of chocolate! So to celebrate this joyous thought I’ve teamed up with Hotel Chocolat to give one of my lucky readers the chance to win the BIGGEST Easter Egg I’ve ever got my hands on – result!!!!

I’m sure you don’t need me to introduce Hotel Chocolat to you, as they seem to be popping up on high streets everywhere, but one thing’s for sure their range of Easter Eggs is pretty extensive. If you’re looking for a seasonal gift that’s more sophisticated than a supermarket special, this is definitely the place to go.

The Giant Chocolate Easter Eggs are certainly the pick of the bunch – I really could not believe my eyes when the gargantuan Ostrich Easter Egg arrived on my doorstep for me to review.

Hotel Chocolat Ostrich Easter Egg
The first thing that strikes me is the sheer weight of the box – coming in at an impressive 1.4kg.

The packaging is stunning – inside the sturdy box the giant egg is wrapped in elegant ruffled silver paper with white ribbon and nestled in vivid red paper shavings. Within the box also awaits an entire black drawer of chocolates to slide out and enjoy.

And as if that’s not enough there are also two 100g slabs of beautifully presented solid chocolate and a seasonal chocolate bunny lollipop. It’s the kind of gift you could give to an entire family and there’d be enough for everyone.

In terms of the actual eating experience, we started with the box of chocolates which were delicious – I especially enjoyed the slightly salty liquid caramels.

The main event, the Ostrich Egg did not disappoint. I flew at the inch thick chocolate shells with a pretty hefty vintage ladle to crack it into pieces. The 40% chocolate is smooth and creamy but with a satisfyingly crunchy bite thanks to chunks of cookie, chocolate and crisps.

I’ve never spent £65 on an Easter Egg before, but I have to say the amount of great quality chocolate you get combined with beautiful packaging certainly seems bang on the money.

Have I lured you in enough to want one?!

The Prize: One Hotel Chocolat Ostrich Easter Egg in milk or dark chocolate worth £65, complete with large egg, box of chocolates, two 100g bars of solid chocolate and chocolate bunny lollipop

Runner’s Up Prize: The Eggsibitionist Extra Thick Easter Egg worth £24. With both shells in our house 40% milk chocolate and 12 gorgeously decorated mini eggs hiding inside – including salted liquid caramel, melt-away hazelnut praline, silky smooth truffles, chocolate brownie and more.

    My favourite Easter memory is from the early 1960s. We went to the Lake District for a family outing on Easter Sunday, taking my Grandma. There was a late cold snap – Tarn Hows was frozen and the hills were covered in snow.We had a wonderful day, and it is a very precious memory because two weeks later, Grandma suffered a stroke and passed away.

    My favourite Easter memory is every bank holiday weekend going to the funfair in Porthcawl or Barry Island, home of Gavin and Stacey. Having donuts or candy floss and sausage and chips from the greasy spoon cafe….probably set me up for heart disease for life, but great fun when you’re 10!

    My grandfather’s love of Easter began long before I was born, or so my mother used to tell me. I was only 8 months old my first Easter so my Easter parading was done in my carriage! I got a beautiful Easer basket from “George”. My grandfather found someone in the city who made the baskets. I obviously don’t remember that first Easter, although I do have memories of the Easters a few years later. The memories that I still keep with me today are all stored in that Easter basket.

    My favourite Easter memory was when an uncle who I did not see very often posted me the biggest Easter egg I had ever seen. My parents always bought me an Easter egg but we didn’t have very much money to spare so it was always a small one. When I opened the parcel neither my Mum nor I could believe it – and it was so beautifully packaged it was almost a shame to open it – but we forced ourselves!

    My favourite Easter memory, when I was small, is one of painting dozens of eggs either with vegetable dye or with paints (mum was an artist) and they looked gorgeous. Assorted jewel and pastel clours, rurAL SCENES AND SPRING FLOWERS.Then decoring a large silver bonbon basket with daffodils and paper narcissi on a doily and with a baked lamb sweet yeast cake sitting in the middle (in 3D no less). This was taken to be bleesed in a church ceremony and then used as a centre piece for the Easter table. At dinner we opened the eggs, cut them and offered them to each other and guests (we had about 20 assorted guests and neighbours around that time). A great start to magnificent feast.

  50. Kathryn Hearn says:

    My favourite Easter memory is from when I was about seven. Usually we took our Easter eggs out to a massive hill to roll them down (to crack them) but the weather was so bad we were allowed to roll them down the stairs. It was very satisfying dropping a chocolate egg from the landing and seeing it bump, bump, BUMP, as it landed in the hall in tiny pieces – it was very funny and we managed to salvage quite a lot of the chocolate (though I never tried that again!!)

  51. Julie Johnson says:

    I am not on twitter or Facebook, so just this blog
    When we were small my Aunt used to buy us Easter Eggs with a little Wade ornament, and we used to try and collect them all, trouble is we only got one a year, I cannot remember if we ever did

  52. lydia says:

    I must have been 6 or so and my dad hid dozens of little foil wrapped eggs round our garden, which was huge- it took hours, but I guess that might have been the point!! I will do the same for my son this year I think

  53. lydia says:

    following you on twitter as mrs_meep too thanks

  54. Jan Bailey says:

    I remember one Easter when the weather was cold and miserable I decided to create an indoor Easter egg hunt for my 2 kids. It took me about 2 hours to write the rhyming clues and hide them on the Saturday evening – and it took the kids about 10 minutes to rush around the house solving them and find their eggs! Happy days!

  55. My favourite Easter memory is probably when I was about 5 years old at school and the Easter Bunny came around and gave us all chocolate!

    I loved Easter as a kid, my mum would always do an elaborate easter egg hunt with proper printed clues!! My favourite memory though has to be when my little brother was about 2 (he’s 26 now bless him lol) and he walked round for about an hour holding half an easter egg in his mouth, when we finally got him to drop it he had a perfect chocolate ring around his face (we still have the photographic evidence to embarrass him to his friends too)

    My favourite Easter memory is one from my childhood. It was a cold easter and snow had fallen overnight. My dad being the good easter bunny had woken early and hidden our eggs around the garden before we woke.
    Upon waking my brother and I were told that the Easter bunny had been and we were to hunt for our eggs. My dad stood bemused as we returned within seconds. We were asked how we found them so quickly. It was easy when you were able to follow size 10 welly prints to their hiding positions!

We weren’t laughing at the time but those are the memories that childhood is all about lol

    My favourite Easter memory is the Easter my Daughters were old enough to do their first Egg Hunt. They were so excited when they woke. I’d purchaed 2 little baskets and had previously hid all their goodies around the house. It took a while for them to find everything but we enjoyed every minute. They still insist I do them each year even though my oldest is now in college. Just goes to show, you can never be too old for Easter fun. 🙂

    My most memorable Easter is when i was about five or six, my parents, sisters and little niece spent the saturday evening decorating eggs to roll down the hill for ourselves and for the children who would be attending the Easter Eggstravaganza that my parents had organised for a local club they ran. We had the egg rolling which was followed by our easter treasure hunt, a visit from the easter bunny, and a party for us kids and parents. It was a great day not just for my family but also for our local community

    My memory is watching my niece and nephew on the Easter egg hunt in the garden. When they found all the eggs we had to hide them again because they enjoyed looking so much.

  164. Jenny says:

    My favourite Easter memory was last year. My husband had planned a surprise easter egg hunt for me and our 3 year old daughter. He’d drawn lots of picture clues and dressed up as a rabbit. He hid the eggs everywhere imaginable and it took us ages to find them….Infact we ended up finding a few more the following month!!!
    Im doing the hunt this year, and am so excited as we have another addition to our family though at only 7months old, I will have to eat his share of chocolate!! But seriously…could ou imagaine my hubbys and daughters face, when they get to the final egg…and its the ostrich egg!!!???

  183. THOMAS HILL says:

    Back in the 60’s; My wife and I had taken over a News / Confectiorery shop; this particular year Easter was late. We decided to raffle one of Cadburys Giant Eggs asan Easter special and dressed our shop window with all the purple and yellow and green and white crepe paper with chicks and daffodils : a spectacular sight; the last week before Easter when the raffle for the egg was to be drawn, the weather changed from Rain; Clouds , and chill to a beautiful warm Spring weekend;
    Our beautiful Giant Cadbury Egg suddenly developed an unhealthy hole in its centre; DISASTER We finally resolved the problem by inserting a 1/2 lb box of Milk Tray to fill the hole. The egg was drawn and thought that the box of chocolates was the way the Egg had been made. The only time we made a mistake like that

    My favourite easter memory has to be easter egg rolling down the hill at my aunties house… where she lived the garden was massive and on quite a steep hill, with the river Bollin at the foot. Needless to say a few easter eggs were set sail that day… can’t imagine what people must have thought when they discovered easter eggs floating past!!! Was a great afternoon though and something I will definately do with my boys!

    Mine has to be the ritual we do every year, for my 3 girls, and my 12 nieces and nephews. All of us go to my sisters in St Albans, and at the back of her house there is a wonder forrest. The adults then hide the eggs there and watch the children run around like looneys hunting for there eggs.
    In the meantime, us me and my sister are decorating some soft eggs,and some hard boiled eggs, the children then take it in turns to crack one on there head, whoever picks the hard egg, receives the grand prize of a very large easter egg!
    We’ve been doing this for years, and is always on the calendar.
    After all the fun, we all then go off for sunday dinner together.

I didn’t quite ‘get’ the concept and I held my egg in my hand then basically ‘launched’ myself down the hill!! I was more upset that my chocolate egg was scattered in tiny bits down the hillside than I was by the bruises!

  211. Robo_Kitten says:

    My favourite Easter memories (they have to be plural because they were great every year!) are of when my sister and I were small – simply having Easter egg hunts in the garden. My mum was always so good at hiding things – she’d hide tiny eggs, big eggs, wrapped up sweets, little confectionery treats – and help us along with clever clues. We’d run around like headless chickens, holding little wicker baskets, trying to find the most. It would take the whole morning to find them, and we didn’t even have a big garden!

    Looking back now I did, in a funny way, appreciate the spring coming and all the daffodils and the wildlife, even though I wasn’t really old enough to appreciate it directly. It was like a marker for the year to come. It was such a great way to spend time with family – no TV, no arguments (my parents didn’t really get on), and no distractions – I don’t think people really take the time to do things like that enough these days.

    At least the afternoon chocolate binge was justified, what with all that running around – nowadays it’s a quick trip to Asda to buy whatever WE want, and a scoff-sesh on the sofa. But it’s the giving that really matters and makes good memories, and of course the family you share these things with. Happy Easter! 🙂

    My face Easter memory is going to my nanna’s mobile caravan near Bangor in north Wales. I was about 4 and it was the late 70s. Think brown patterned Walls and orange cushions. One rainy Easter we were there, and I must have had about 14 Easter eggs lined up along the shelf of the caravan. I then proceeded to eat about 11 of them on Easter Sunday, as there was nothing else to do in the rain. I felt pretty sick, and no wonder I was a chubby kid!

We explained that we just saw the easter bunny hoping away (her tail like) and that we should go see if she had left us any eggs. My little one said “but i didnt see her” We replyed (having two dogs) “she must of been in a hurry baby and i expect the doggys scared her off a bit”. With that she cried for a min stating she really wanted to see her and it wasn’t fair. (wasn’t interested in finding the eggs we had planted i might add lol) She spent the rest of the day telling the dogs off.

And it was mine ‘cos I’d found it!! I yelled and an adult got it down for me, and I took it home and, being an only child, ate it ALL!! Yum!

    When I was little my uncle worked for Cadbury’s. I always remember Easter time being wonderful as he was allowed to buy the broken chocolate cheaper. I used to get bags of dented cadburys cream eggs and bashed box of chocolates. I am still addicted to it today at the grand old age of 50. Thanks Uncle Bob the chocolate was fantastic

  286. My favourite Easter memory is of my cousins from Yorkshire coming to stay. They brought chocolate easter eggs with them and I was sooo jealous but also too young to understand that one was for me. So, I sneaked down the stairs after bedtime to have a piece of one. The next thing was I was woken up by my mum with chocolate all over me and my mum going mad! I was made to stay in my bedroom all of Easter. I was only 5.

    When I was about 10 years old I can remember having a long tube tube of Suchard mini eggs and they tasted absolutely divine and I thought it was the best chocolate ever! In fact, if I close my eyes I can still taste them now, there was certainly something special about them. I don’t think they are made anymore as I haven’t seen them around but all is not lost as now we have Hotel Chocolat which tastes even better!

    The excitement of seeing what the Easter Bunny had left. My parents used to set up a treasure trail with an Easter egg in the final hiding place. I now set up a treasure trail for my own children.

    My favourite easter memory is when i was 4 years old, i was at school and we returned to the classroom to find big giant rabbit foot prints all over the floor which led to little chocolate eggs for everyone, sounds rubbish but it was super exciting at the time hehe

    My favourite Easter memory was about 30 years ago when I woke up as a child to see everywhere covered in a thick blanket of snow! Together with over ten large chocolate eggs I had the best Easter ever.

    My favourite and most memorable Easter was when I was 10 years old and staying with my aunt. I woke in the morning to my aunt yelling at me to get up and out of the house because the chimney was on fire! The firemen came and doused the flames but all my choc eggs were ruined by heat and water. Later my cousin (my aunt’s daughter) and her husband came over with a HUGE Easter egg, she broke it up and we all shared the egg. It was the most eventful and best Easter, ever!

    When my son was 3, Easter Bunny left a few wee eggs in the garden, and our son went to collect them in a wee basket he had an egg in earlier in the day. As he pushed an egg in the front, one fell out the back! It kept him going collecting “loads” of eggs for about half an hour before he managed to get them all in together, bless 🙂

    My best Easter memory is hunting for easter eggs, and mum’s roast lamb mmmmm…

  328. Kate Coldicott says:

    My granny use to clean the local church and one Easter she was taking little Easter eggs for Sunday school. We set off using an old pram to take all the odds and ends. A wheel came off and the pram tipped over and everything came out. The trouble was granny lived at the top of a hill and all the eggs went rolling down. I remember chasing down the hill frantically trying to pick up the eggs. It was very funny.

    My best Easter memory… I have 3 younger sisters, I love chocolate but none of them are quite so keen. While I was growing up all the extended family used to give us chocolate eggs/bunnies. I remember one year we were given some Lindt bunnies, quite big ones, mine was long gone but the others stood proudly on the kitchen worktop for quite a while after Easter. After a while one of my sisters came to eat her bunny – she picked it up & found that it only had its front left. My Dad who shares my love of chocolate had been eating it little by little, always taking from the back! My sisters were suitably unimpressed but we’ve been teasing my Dad about eating the bunny’s bottom ever since!

  335. katie j :) says:

    Hey,
    My favourite easter memory is of an egg hunt when I was about 4, I found lots of eggs but was a bit dissapointed when some of them had my brother and sister’s names on them! Therefore I deserve this one massive egg just for me 🙂 x

  336. Bex Henderson says:

    My favourite easter memory is when i was around 7 my mum wrote little riddles and hid eggs round the garden and house, each riddle had a clue to the next egg and so on and at the end was one massive egg very well hidden. Kept me entertained for pretty much the whole day, the rest of the day was spent eating the egg.

    Liked their facebook page

    My favourite Easter memory has to be all those years in my childhood when my parents made us home made Easter eggs with our names on and decorated with gorgeous homemade sugared primroses as well as filled with little gifts! Such precious memories for so little money…..

    The one Easter memory which sticks out for me is when i was about 10 (one or 2 years ago!) and my dad decided we would go out for the day on Easter Monday (he would never normally travel on a bank holiday). We went to Whipsnade wildlife park and all the way there the weather turned bad and was cold and snowing, by the time we got to the park there was quite a ground covering but dad was determined we would see the animals and we spent the next 5 hours looking at empty pens and trying to spot the wildlife who were keeping warm in their night boxes. Its the only time i have been to a zoo and not seen any animals!

  369. Sarah Sheen says:

    Favourite memory was when I was terribly young, on a holiday in a caravan with my mum, brother, nan and great aunt. My brother and I went on a mini easter hunt, and we ended up winning some chocolate for taking part. Nothing much, but we didn’t get many holidays, and this one stuck with me!
