Nestled among the regular Easter products in Poundland, I saw these unassuming bags of Poppets Mini Eggs. Now, I can't say I go crazy for Poppets, but I am known to dabble. I was expecting these eggs to be just like their regular counterpart, chocolatey treats with interesting fillings, like mint or toffee. But after picking these up, I found they're just chocolate eggs.
I still bought them, of course, but the thrill was gone. Upon trying them, my mood didn't improve. These are just mini chocolate eggs, much like all the other mini chocolate eggs. Well, they certainly don't beat the Cadbury ones, so really they're a little inadequate. There's nothing particularly wrong with them, the chocolate isn't bad, and the sugary coating is quite nice, but really these are just bland. If they put something inside them like I expected, perhaps I'd be giving them more praise. But as they are, these are just some standard chocolate eggs. At least they were only £1.
My rating: 3/5
I don't know why you were expecting regular Poppets when it clearly states "Paynes Poppets Mini Eggs" on the wrapper. These are delicious mini-eggs and far superior to the Mondelez "Cadbury" mini eggs. The chocolate is far creamier and you get more in a bag.ReplyDelete
