Laura sent me some mini eggs from the UK, and since I had four precious Canadian mini eggs left we were able to do a UK-US-CA Egg Taste Off.
The image above shows the Canadian eggs next to the UK eggs. The UK eggs are larger, about the size of US eggs, but with blotchy speckles which I think is actually chocolate sprayed on. The UK eggs have darker colors (white, yellow, pink and purple) than either the UK or CA eggs, in fact the colors look more like the US dark chocolate eggs.
Above we have US on the left, Canada in the middle and the UK to the right.
The Canadian mini eggs were by far the winner, congratulations! The chocolate was simply a superior, tasty milk chocolate. The UK eggs were second with a mild chocolate flavor, and the US still taste like, well, creamy sweet something that isn’t quite chocolate. The US eggs have a meltier, gooier feel in the mouth than the UK eggs. I’m going to go so far as to say that in direct comparison the US eggs suck, they taste almost like bad white chocolate.
I’m spoiled now. And Canada, you better appreciate what you got.
Now quick, somebody get all three kinds of eggs over to Candy Blog, I want to hear what someone with practiced tastbuds has to say about the differences.
