Calling all foodies! The Top 5 Easter Chocolates in 2019

Paques

Chocolate is an Easter icon and can be enjoyed in countless ways from eggs and bells to candy and bunnies. Easter Sunday traditionally heralded the end of Lent, and religious people would give each other the hens’ eggs collected over this period of fasting. This tradition slowly transformed to welcome decorated eggs, and then eggs made from chocolate. The bell and the bunny were the figures responsible for distributing Easter eggs in the Christian religion. Customs have since combined and intertwined, and foodies can now enjoy a veritable celebration of chocolate in the run up to Easter. Here is our selection of the Top 5 chocolates for 2019 you won’t want to miss!

 

La Montgolfière – Le Georges V – Maxime Frédéric – €75

And when you turn the little handle, the balloon comes to life and starts to spin. Artwork good enough to eat!
