A warm hello, dear friends!
With Easter just around the corner, I have a very special treat to share with you. One of my favourite Canadian brands, Camino, is back with new festive treats for Easter-chocolate eggs! Chocolate eggs just so happen to be one of my all-time favourite Easter treats too, woo-hoo!
I was very excited when Camino announced the launch of their first-ever chocolate eggs. It is so lovely to see Camino creating new, festive-themed chocolate products and giving customers quality sweet treats for special occasions.
This news is even sweeter because they outdid themselves with not 1 or 2 but 3 types of chocolate eggs! Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate eggs are all filled with yummy caramelized hazelnut praline!
I was beyond thrilled when they kindly gifted me these chocolate eggs to review and share with all of you. So, a big thank you again to Camino for this wonderful opportunity! If you would like to try out these chocolate eggs or learn more about Camino check out their website or read about them in my previous post here.

The packaging of the chocolate eggs is adorable! The light and airy pastel colour palette and illustration capture the look and feel of Easter and Spring. And of course, beautiful images of all three chocolate eggs flavours are displayed in all their glory.
These cuties are encased with yellow, green, and dark green foil wrappers, giving them a bright, joyous Spring and festive feel—so fresh and pretty. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package the eggs are quite big! I thought they would be smaller like traditional mini chocolate eggs, but these are a great size.
Now let’s talk about the most awaited part of this review, how they taste!
The dark chocolate eggs have a lovely, delicate coating of bittersweet chocolate, enrobing a creamy milk chocolate centre. Once you hit the velvety filling, the feel and taste of the sprinkling of hazelnut praline comes through. The earthiness of the dark chocolate seems to enhance the nutty notes of hazelnut praline. The contrast between the dark and milk chocolate along with the hazelnut praline creates a harmonious blend of flavours and texture.
The milk chocolate eggs are just oh so dreamy and creamy. Its luscious milk chocolate coating and milk chocolate center, scattered with hazelnut praline, creates a blissful bite. The nuttiness of hazelnut praline is a bit more mellow because of the creamy, richness of the milk chocolate, but is very well balanced in taste and texture.
These white chocolate eggs are such a tasty bite of white chocolatey goodness. The silky-smooth shell, paired with the hazelnut praline filling, creates a pleasant medley of flavours with its nuttiness and chocolate notes. They are also the perfect level of sweetness, which is no easy feat (white chocolate has the tendency to be on the sweeter side).
All 3 flavours of the chocolate eggs are delightful! I really love how none of them were overly sweet. Instead, you are greeted with the same, well-balanced lusciousness from the chocolate and crunch from hazelnut praline filling in every single egg. I immensely enjoy how each chocolate flavour, paired with the hazelnut praline, creates its own unique taste experience.
Another nice touch is the texture of the chocolate eggs’ outer shells. They have an embossed shell-like texture. Not only is it visually lovely, but it also gives the eggs their own unique look, which I quite appreciate.
Kudos to Camino for creating these next-level chocolate eggs. They are like no other I have ever tried. And let me tell you, I have tried my fair share over the years. However, I have never had one with a nutty crunch filling in the center like these ones and in different types of chocolate flavours.
As far as selecting a favourite, I honestly don’t think I can pick one this time around. I thoroughly enjoyed all of them equally, especially because each had its own individual taste experience.
SWEET TREAT FOR EASTER
These chocolate eggs are the perfect sweet treat for Easter and great for Easter egg hunts for kids, a gift for family, friends, or even a sweet treat for yourself ;). So, give them a try, and have some delightful chocolate eggs to celebrate Easter or Springtime :).
