I’m The Grocery Editor at Kitchn And These Chocolate-Covered Eggs Are the Best New Thing I Tried All Week
If we’ve met more than once, chances are, my affinity for Reese’s has come up — especially if our encounter happened to be this time of year. I do not celebrate Easter, but I have a vague memory of hunting for the shiny yellow-packaged chocolate-covered, peanut-butter-filled eggs (you know the ones) in my house as a kid. And every April, preferably the morning after Easter Sunday, I go to the nearest grocery or convenience store to stock up on these half-priced confections. The best candy is the kind on sale, after all.
This week, however, I found myself enjoying another limited-edition, orb-shaped treat just as much, if not more, than my beloved. These new eggs are available through the weekend nationwide … and maybe (hopefully!) even a few days after that.
Chocolove Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Filled Eggs
Roughly the size of a Reese’s snack-size egg, the shell is premium 33% Belgian milk chocolate — rich, creamy, and delightful. It’s also cleverly thin on the bottom, which is, in fact, brilliant because it allows the rich and creamy chocolate to quickly melt in your mouth and intermingle with the salty peanut butter center. Seriously, resist the urge to chew, and maybe even close your eyes once you finally do. It’ll both prolong and intensify the experience.
This egg is gorgeous. Clearly, I recommend you try one. But if, for some reason, you aren’t a fan of peanut butter, or you prefer dark chocolate over milk, or both, Chocolove eggs come in three other inviting flavors: Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Filled Eggs, Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Filled Eggs, and Milk Chocolate Marshmallow Filled Eggs. I shared some — not all — with my roommate, friends, and a doorperson at a friend’s apartment building. Everyone closed their eyes and agreed: They are that good.
