    Maybe I'm missing something but you said the Lindt Easter Bunny costs £55.89, while the link you gave us sells it for £39.99, plus free delivery, so I'm wondering why there is such a big difference?

    Just the whole section for the chocolate bunny was funny moment after funny moment. Who knew chocolate bunnies could be so funny.

    Kinda sad they stopped making their normal recipe videos. Now everything is battles, reviews and just a lot of madness surrounding food. It's become impossible to use SortedFood as a reference for new recipes, because there's almost no such videos left. Big Night In was amazing, or even recipe's with secret ingredients (like mayonnaise in cake!) please bring back more videos like those please.

    I totally agree with Ben - for some companies, they call it done at 'chocolate' and 'egg-shaped', whether that chocolate is good or NOT. Like - I'm just gonna say it - Kinder Eggs are grosssss and taste like cardboard. I think the reason most people like them is because they're illegal here so it's illicit or whatever but - the candy freaking sucks lol

    Those Lindt bunnies are thirty quid via the link and RRP is £40, so not sure where that price came from. Keep'em in your wishlist for a couple of months and they'll be about £25. Still WAY too much but then again I do want everything for a quid.

    I once spent Easter Sunday in Brugge. Had the pleasure of going to a few chocolate shops and get the 'discounted' Belgian easter eggs. They were of such a high standard, I haven't been able to compare or eat anything mass produced since then.

    I prefer dark chocolate, so only the eco egg would be something I might get. Although to buy something egg-shaped (or rabbit-shaped) during Easter JUST because it's Easter is a waste of money.

  • ballerina2rockerchik

    The only thing that could make Lindt chocolate bunnies better is if they were filled with their truffle filling.

    Once my parents brought me a hotel chocolat easter egg, but I was away for Easter and they got drunk and ate it - I only found out years later when we were walking past one of the shops and my dad was like "oh remember when we got you an egg from there?" Then silence as he realised what he'd done 😂 I couldn't even be mad because honestly I'd have done exactly the same 😂

    I would probably not get any of these mainly because they are all so big (except the last one) that they would go stale before we finished them. I prefer bite-sized chocolates.

    You should review the Ambiano kitchen equipment stuff from Aldi! It’s all quite cheap but I’ve no idea what the quality is like. It’s so tempting on special buy, would love to know if it’s worth it!

    For egg number 4, how is it possible that one person thinks that it is so salty that he can't taste the chocolate, and the other says that it's too sweet (for chocolate, which is supposed to be sweet).

  • Jan Uzzell
    Jan Uzzell 5 days ago

    Used to be a chocolate taster for Hotel Chocolat - it was an interesting time - mostly gorgeous but there were some fails! (for me - others loved them) so maybe you could continue the Easter chocolate theme and either make your own chocolates (interesting combinations) OR taste test some filled chocolates

    I bought some chocolate from venchi and was equally disappointed. Very bland and overly sweet, especially considering how much they charge!

  • Ruth Skinner

    So... James said he doesn't know much about chocolate, maybe a lot of people don't, but would like to... there's a place in the new Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross, where you can try (and buy at pretentious prices...) loads of different sorts, from different origins and types. (And a similar coffee place next door to it... the guy who runs that, owns both, and is quite passionate about it).
    It strikes me that so many people travel through Kings Cross/St Pancras every day, that it would be really great to see some kind of review of what you guys think the best places (in terms of quality for budget) are there, to eat or drink. So many great restaurants, and so many really new ones, plus oyster bar, vermoutheria etc...

    A suggestion: I'm assuming you have it in London. Go to a bar/brewery and brew your own beer. Then when it's ready decide on who made the best beer. Its quite fun though the quality of the beer changes depending on how much you drink during the process.

    Luckily here in Australia, people feel the same about spending $80 au $ on the Lindt bunnies.
    So I can usually find them marked down after Easter. About $50 or (guess) £30-£35

    mass produced foods are intentionally flavourless so the general masses can and will eat them. it's only in the last 40 years that we've started to diversify into seasonings, spices and ethnic flavours, if you eat industrial foods you get that industrial food bland level flavour, if you want good tastes and flavours you need to do it yourself or seek an artist.

    SORTED team - I really need an episode or segment about handling leftover ingredients ie. Buttermilk, egg whites or yolks etc. I absolutely love trying new things but hate blatant waste. I don't know what to use left over common ingredients, i made a quiche earlier this week with buttermilk, now i have a quart sitting in my fridge where do i substitute it into my everyday cooking? When i cook something that leaves me with extra separated yolks or whites where do i use them besides just cooking them up .

    Honestly the only egg I'd concider is the eco egg, and not because it's eco! Dark chocolate is my favourite, and milk chocolate tends to get nauseating and too sweet really fast.
