Taste Testing -beyond the call of duty!
30th March 2017
To show our dedication, as if this was ever in question, our team, along with colleagues in other offices, tested a few Easter eggs that are on the supermarket shelves, (and have been since early January!).
Below are our findings, not scientific, but a clear winner has emerged which might help inform your decision when choosing for yourself or a loved one.
We sent out our team to a selection of supermarkets. We did visit two Co-op stores but were unable to buy dairy, gluten-free eggs at either of the stores. The most we spent was £5. Seven of us took part in the testing.
We scored out of five, five being the best score, on flavour, texture, appearance and packaging. The maximum score in each category was 35, with the total being 140.
If you have received one, and don’t agree with our test outcomes, just let us know.
The Celtic Chocolate egg, from Sainsbury’s is the clear winner at £3.50. Everyone thought it was excellent value for money with comments including, “I like the strong dark flavour, not too sweet and the mint disk was very tasty!” and “delicious!”
Second was the Asda’s Belgian dark chocolate egg at £5.00 with comments like, “good chocolate flavour, creamy texture” and, “I really liked the dark chocolate in this one!”
In joint third place was Kinnerton egg and an egg from the Free From range, both Asda. Comments included, “I like the orange flavour, very tasty!” and “I like the dark, strong flavour!”
We hope this has helped you decide upon how you are going to indulge over the Easter break. Whatever you decide, the team would like to wish you a very Happy Easter!
