    oooh..it may be a northern thing??

    it's like a freezer shop..quite tacky..tends to have 'bad' food in it..like shonky quality meat ready meals..lamb grills and weird pop but often there are 'gems' in there that you totally wouldn't expect..like vegan easter eggs and innocent smoothies for like 59p cos they're about a week to go before going out of date..that kind of thing

    i don't entirely understand what you mean mr flibble. as far as i can see, regarding the simpsons/bang on the door eggs, they are eggsactly the same as the £1.99 ones in sainsbury's. in my ideal world i wouldn't buy either..but there you go..i have. and faced with those choices i'd go for the one at 69p.

    i'm not altogether gormless, wouldn't buy a load of cheapo stuff just cos it's about to go rancid..i just gets what i needs.

    Sorry, i wasn't being eggspecially clear. What I was trying to eggspress is whether the eggstra saving gained is adequate compensation for going into a shop like Jack Fultons. Of course, it is in reality, but it was a joke.

    I'm not familiar with Jack personally, but with the concept of eggstremely cheap (uneggspensive) northern freezer food shops. I tend to avoid them, eggscept pound shops, which can have some eggstremely, even eggstroidinarily, eggscitingily good bargins once in a while. I can't think of eggsamples at the moment though...maybe I'm just eggsagreating? This posting malarky is very eggshausting, I'm going to mark a sharp eggsit now

When we got home we found four big Kinnerton luxury dark chocolate eggs with a big chocolate bar on! As I only have two children, my daughters have agreed that we will give two of the eggs as part of our donation when we visit Ferne animal sanctuary tomorrow.

    Maybe he thought that not as many people would make an effort to find vegan eggs for your daughters, since the staggering majority of eggs are milk chocolate.

    That's very self-sacrificing of your daughters to agree to donate them, especially when chocolate keeps so well.


    I'm resisting the temptation to buy 2 Divine dark eggs with chocolate covered brazil nuts, as the local fair trade shop is doing a buy one get one free promo. I may have to resort to it if the eggs I'm making don't turn out very well.

    I think I've started to go off chocolate, so I won't be buying any Easter eggs this year. I ate a small bar of chocolate earlier in the week and it was just too rich. I still love other sweet things though.

    They're looking good, but as I said in the "what did you make today" thread, the texture of the ones using couverture and white as well as dark choc have gone a bit funny. They taste alright, but kind of brown sugary.

    I bought an Elizabeth Shaw mint crisp easter egg today, the ingredients list doesn't mention honey, but it says on the front the egg contains 'honeycomb' crisp pieces. Does anyone know if it is real honeycomb as it doesn't mention honey in the ingredients or is it just sugar? Or is honeycomb always made from honey?

    I'm not sure, Sandra, but I know vegan store sells "honeynotcomb" so it is possible to make it without honey. Best to contact Elizabeth Shaw directly I guess.

    No honeycomb of the sweetie variety I've seen for sale has ever had real honey in, the name comes from the airy texture.

    The Elizabeth Shaw crisp things used to be accidentally vegan, then they started saying that they contain traces of milk, but I imagine that's just because it's shared equipment, I'm pretty sure there's no honey in there though, especially if it's not listed in the ingredients.

    These were the mini eggs I made with Organica "white bar" and Divine dark chocolate.

    I ended up making a lot of different kinds - about 8 large hollow eggs, the white and dark mini eggs, Organica couverture and dark mini eggs, mini eggs where I made a shell of dark chocolate then filled them with vanilla truffle mix, and some with coarse hazelnut gianduja filling. I think the truffle filled ones were probably the most successful.

They also had divine and dutchy and another organinc one half price but did not look at the ingredients...

    Did buy one for my gran - id promised her an easter egg and her fave is dark choc - kinnerton are nut free so nice smooth choc as she is mainly on a soft diet but seems to manage small crumbs of choc still if not i know the staff at her nursing home will try to melt it and put it on top of ice cream or sponge pud for her!

    I might need to make a special trip over to yours then twinkle! actually you could probably save it all and make some more eggs at some point?

    I wanted to get those small moulds, so I could attmept to make vegan cream eggs, as I saw a recipe somewhere.


    I try to stay away from chocolate usually too, because even though I love it, I have no self control....but I think I earned some because I'm sure the whole country must have gorged this past weekend and I had none!

    there's a guy just started a new vegan chocolate business and is selling them through only a couple of local (Brighton) shops. he's doing eggs with truffles inside including peanut butter flavour, vanilla, orange and mint. the eggs themselves are plain, ginger or blueberry.
    I bought a 'basket' with peanut butter truffles (10) but must report that the truffles were a huge disappointment. Not sweet enough or peanuty enough or soft centred enough.
    I had tried two other truffle flavours (rosemary and mint) which were for sale individually in May's General Store in Lewes which were lovely so had high hopes for these.
