Food: Sainsbury's Belgian Chocolate Egglets Stickpack

Food Rating: 9
Value for Money: 7
Overall: 8

In A Nutshell

In this rectangular shaped box, there are 6 egglets; half are white, half milk, but all Belgian chocolates with Almond and Hazelnut praline filling.

What I liked

To any chocoholic, just the smell and sight of chocolate is good enough to like a product, but we do have our standards. Thankfully, these sweets combine some lip-licking chocolate delights, with being both Belgian and having Praline in the middle. Oh ... sweet ... goodness combined! Truly these chocolates have that classic nutty taste but without any hint of little bits crunching in your mouth. The chocolate is smooth and silky, melting with delight in your mouth.

At around 60 calories per bite/egglet, that's enough to enjoy a few of these at one time and feel like you are eating something and not piling on calories/fat.

What I Didn't Like

Aside from a little misleading advertising (see below) there are only 6 of these in the packet with an unnecessary extra cardboard panel that pulls off the front adding to minor overpackaging. I don't think we needed that there to be able to see and read the back of the packet to find out what they were made out of.


These are not little eggs, despite it being Easter when they are on sale. These are egglets. Thus you'll be very disappointed when you take them out of the packet and realise that these are all show, and literally with no spine or back to them. Only egg shaped on the front, with half the egg missing.

It's an Egglet, not an Egg!

And Finally

At £2.50 a pack, this is just about right in the modern world of value for money. Sure, a little cheaper would seem better but these are seen as luxury chocolates by Sainsburys and they sure do taste like them. 50p per egglet would be seen as within reason.
