Easter: Review of Hotel Chocolat You Crack Me Up Easter Egg...with a little help from 'friends' in high places

     You Crack Me Up™ Extra Thick Easter Egg

When Hotel Chocolat asked me if I'd like to review one of their Easter Eggs I of course leapt at the opportunity. And promptly high fived everyone in a one mile radius gleefully shouting: 'I-Get-CHOCOLATE-TO-REVIEW!! I-GET-CHOCOLATE-TO-REVIEW!!'

This gloriously cheery and terrifically tasty Easter Egg duly arrived: You Crack Me Up Extra Thick Easter Egg. That's right: extra thick. That profound disappointment experienced each year when the Easter Eggs turned out not to be solid was instantly banished.

To help with this dreadfully onerous and grueling task of scoffing chocolate and telling everyone how much I love it, I enlisted the assistance of a few people you may well have heard of.

Celebrity Judges Review You Crack Me Up Easter Egg*

*According to What Kate Baked

Len Goodman (Strictly Come Dancing; Head Judge): 'seeeeVEN!'

Amanda Holden, Britain's Got Talent: 'Oh my goodness you've bought a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye!'

Alesha Dixon, Strictly deserter: '100% YES!!'

Craig Revel-Horwood, : 'That is most certainly not a disssssaaahhsstar. Three words: fab-u-LOUS! Another three words: AA-MA-ZZING!'

Gregg Wallace: 'That is just gooey loveliness... Oooooh, that has flicked every one of my switches.... I tell you my tastebuds are boogying with one another right now... FONDONT! ... Yes, Yes OH YES' 

Erm, thanks Gregg.

Please note that no celebrities were harmed during the review of this chocolate and all quotes have been said at some time or another. Just not necessarily in relation to the You Crack Me Up Easter Egg.

The whole egg-cellent (had to get in somewhere!) Easter Egg range can be found right here, on the Hotel Chocolat website.

With many thanks to Hotel Chocolat who sent me (us) this Egg to review.
