I continued to work my way through the attractively colored and packaged, filled chocolate egg assortment box from Fran's Chocolates (Seattle, WA). The Caramel Egg had a glossy, dark chocolate egg filled with caramel. It was good, but the caramel filling tasted slightly off, almost as if there had been a drop of vinegar added to the mix. (Note to those watching wheat/gluten intake: I also discovered later that the caramel in this egg contained wheat-derived glucose. Yes, sometimes I get carried away with the whole chocolate experience, and forget to read ingredients first. My fault.)

The Hazelnut Egg I liked better. Tiny crunchy bits added some textural fun to the filling -- that was surrounded by a smooth, milk chocolate shell.

Today was Day #18 of Chocolate Egg Appreciation Month (April).
