Details

Returning for 2019, as part of our "Fine Collection" range of eggs, is our very low sugar dark chocolate Single origin Madagascar 85% Mega Dark chocolate egg in this stunning diamond-faceted Easter egg mould, now with a light dusting of edible silver shimmer to make it sparkle under the lights!

With 85% cocoa and just 15% sugar, this high-cocoa dark chocolate is full of delicate flavours & aromas of forest fruits from the finest Grand cru de Sambirano cocoa from the Sambriano valley in Madagascar.

This egg is not only dairy-free & vegan-friendly, it is also soya-free, so is perfect for vegetarians & vegans.

delicious magazine described this egg as "the ultimate egg for dark-choc lovers" in their review of the Best Easter Eggs in their March 2018 issue.

This 85% Mega Dark chocolate is made by Chocolaterie Robert at their factory in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar and is known as "Raisetrade" as it is produced in its country of origin from tree to bar. This movement  is helping developing countries reduce poverty and increase wealth through business, primarily through the export of manufactured products and brands, rather than commodities. This raises value by creating competitive products and improves investment into the country & skills amongst the local workforce, much more so that exporting even fairtrade cocoa beans, and is something that we are passionate about supporting.

Weight: 175g.  Size: The egg sits snugly in its box which measures 15cm tall - we dont believe in excess packaging, so the box is not huge vs the size of the egg inside, but you are getting a lot of chocolate for your egg!

Please note, the 2 Fine Collection eggs for £35 multibuy offer is only applicable for purchases of 10 eggs or fewer.

Made with freshly dried single origin grand cru cocoa beans grown in the Sambriano region in the north west of Madagascar, this 85% "Mega Dark" will change how you think about high cocoa solids dark chocolate.

It is a very dark chocolate with 85% cocoa solids (therefore only 15% sugar), so is the perfect gift choice for someone who enjoys an intense chocolate taste experience. Some very high cocoa solids dark chocolate can be almost too intense on the palate, but this 85% "Mega Dark" has wonderful red berry fruit notes with a hint of honey, a long soft finish and a soft "eat".

Not only is this single origin chocolate special in terms of the flavours, it is a RAISETRADE product in that it is produced in its country of origin, Madagascar from tree to bar for us to work with. Producing finished products with the value added in country, rather than just exporting raw commodites, adds significantly more value to the local Malagsy economy than the traditional business model in which we in the West add the value.
 
We are very proud to work with Chocolaterie Robert, based in the capital Antananarivo, who produce this chocolate. It only arrived into the UK in January this year and we are one of the first UK chocolatiers to work with it. 

This egg is also a naturally dairy-free product so is suitable for anyone intolerant to dairy & vegans. However, we want you to know that we do make all our chocolates in our kitchen in Dorset, so we cannot guarantee that it will be 100% free of any traces of dairy.
This egg is also soya-free.
