12 Salted Caramel Puffin Eggs

£12.75
Come on, these are adorable. From the packaging to each individual egg, there’s nothing here that isn’t lovely. They are hand painted and filled with buttery caramel ganache. There’s even a sprinkling of fleur de sel. They are utterly, totally, delicious.

Collecting real puffin eggs is - why are we even pointing this out - illegal, bad for puffins and dangerous as it involves climbing unstable, high cliffs with thrashing sea at the bottom. But with these you can still enjoy something that is a rare and beautiful treat.

All of The Chocolate Detective’s range is either produced or sourced by founder Chantal Coady, a woman so committed to good chocolate that she’s been awarded with an OBE. These eggs are made by a French manufacturer: as a small producer Chantal doesn’t have the technology to make the thin sugar shells but she has been working with them for 40 years. The beans are responsibly sourced from Ecuador and are full traceable. 

And 50p of every box sold goes to The Lundy Field Society, set up to protect the important habitats of seabirds and other wildlife, on the island of Lundy in the Bristol Channel. 

Comes in a cardboard egg box with a paper wrapper.   

Ingredients: Sugar, cocoa mass, caramel 12% (sugar, water, dextrose), concentrated butter (MILK), cocoa butter, whole MILK powder, glucose syrup, enrobing agents (gum arabic, carnauba wax, beeswax, shellac), starches, emulsifier: SOYA lecithin, ‘fleur de sel’ salt, natural vanilla flavouring, colouring ingredients (safflower, lemon, radish, blackcurrant and apple concentrates, BARLEY malt extract and E150c.).
