Which Easter egg is best for your team?

With the glorious Bank Holiday fest up ahead, you might be inclined to celebrate and treat your team to a much-needed Easter Egg.

According to a study by Wren Kitchens, children in the UK are expected to receive Easter Eggs worth up to 17,000 calories over the long weekend. Us adults, on the other hand, are often overlooked. Boost morale or at least raise a smile with a carefully selected thank you treat for your team. But which one to buy? We all want to be a sweet, tasty team, but are you and your co-workers more cheese egg than Creme Egg? And how on earth do you find out?

Mostly A’s: You should buy the Moser Roth single origin egg, Aldi

monster

Aldi does a single origin egg by Moser Roth in a zany zebra print. It’s fun, it’s a crowd pleaser, and it looks pretty slick. If this sounds a bit like you and your team… it is! A match made in eggy heaven.

Mostly B’s: You should buy A cheester egg

Cheester-Easter-Egg-In-Case-copy

The cheese egg or ‘Cheester egg’ from ‘so wrong it’s nom.com’ is 260g of solid cheese moulded into egg form and presented in a Camembert case. If any of your colleagues fell foul of the crazy crowds at Borough Market’s massively oversubscribed ‘An Evening of Cheese’ then they will be hip enough to enjoy the irony of this magnificent monstrosity.

Mostly C’s: You should buy ‘The Family Combo Easter Egg’

family combo
This raw chocolate Easter egg is filled with figs, raisins and cashews and from The Raw Chocolate Pie Company. The bottom is made from vanilla fudge, the top is raw choc. The curious, the healthy and the unhealthy eaters can finally agree on something if you present this egg to them: figs are weird.

Mostly D’s: You should buy ‘Hotel Chocolat’s egg sandwich’

300474-Egg-Sandwich-Caramel
If your team’s been a bit up and down, maybe a little stressed, then you need some thick, good quality chocolate in a novelty form. Hotel Chocolat’s Easter goodies feature extra thick chocolate so you can snap it satisfyingly (a great stress reliever). The novelty ‘egg sandwich’ version is bound to cheer everyone up.
