Luxury chocolatier Rococo Chocolates has created something very different this Easter – a vegan five-a-day egg.
Dubbed ‘The vEGGie’, this vegan chocolate Easter egg is infused with vegetable flavourings including tomato, beetroot, spinach, carrot and sweetcorn.
While not quite one of your five-a-day, the veggie infused chocolate definitely makes a surprising gift for anyone who likes trying something different.
The main chocolate egg, which is half dark and half ‘milk’, is accompanied by six adorable mini vegetable-shaped chocolates.
The vEGGie was created exclusively for Amazon, making it available nationwide despite being handmade in small batches at the Rococo kitchen. Rococo only use quality, ethically sourced ingredients, so you can be sure that it will not only taste good but put your mind at rest too.
You can find The vEGGie on Amazon for £32.95, but be quick, or you’ll be off on an Easter egg hunt!
‘Push the boundaries of chocolate’
Speaking in a statement sent to Vegan Food and Living, Head Chocolatier at Rococo Chocolates Mireille Discher said:
“Flavour is at the heart of our craft, and we always strive to create innovative new products that push the boundaries of chocolate.
“We welcomed Amazon’s challenge to create The vEGGie, incorporating five popular vegetables with our signature vegan chocolate to make a tasty and intriguing treat.
“You really can taste the underlying vegetables, and we’re excited to hear what people think about it.”
Director of Grocery at Amazon UK James Bate added:
“This Easter, we’re delighted to team up with small British chocolatier, Rococo Chocolates, to launch The vEGGie, a must-try for those with adventurous palettes.
“Whether you’re a committed vegan or fancy a blind taste test with your family, The vEGGie is sure to make it a memorable egg hunt.”
We have to admit, we’re very intrigued! Who said eating your vegetables wasn’t fun?
The vEGGie not for you?
