Ostriches lay the largest eggs of any living bird – and we measured a real one to create the heftiest shell in our range! Our Classic Ostrich Egg is made with half 40% milk chocolate packed with crunchy cookies and puffed rice, and half 50% milk chocolate with crispy feuilletine. Served with a tray of 27 chocolates – pralines, truffles, caramels, patisserie and more – plus six golden eggs hidden inside the box for you to hunt, all in all this comes to more than a kilo of chocolate! That’s plenty to share with all the family, to make a grand gesture to someone special – or to keep you going all Easter!
"There’s no living bird that lays bigger eggs than an ostrich, making it an apt name for this mammoth offering from Hotel Chocolat that’s been manufactured to exactly the same size. It’s available in delicious dark or (our favourite) crispy milk chocolate and the ultra-posh box also contains six hidden golden eggs and a tray of 27 filled chocolates." - The Independent
