Aldi Eggjoyables

Over the weekend, I came across — and immediately picked up — the very appealing looking Eggjoyables from Aldi.

4 individually wrapped chocolate eggs complete with 2 plastic spoons all neatly packaged in a little egg carton — it’s the very same concept as Cadbury Egg ‘n’ Spoon. Since I’ve already tried the Cadbury version, I thought I’d give these a go and see how they compare.

To start, in terms of packaging, Cadbury are the clear winners. The colours and the quality are definitely higher standard and they have a more luxurious feel to them. I imagine both brands would appeal to kids though — especially with the cute little spoons!

Ultimately though it’s what inside that counts (right?!). Within these blue foil wrappers are milk chocolate eggs with a cute crack detail, just like Cadbury’s. Each egg is filled with a creamy white filling.

Taste-wise? I much prefer Aldi’s offering! The chocolate is creamy and thicker and the filling is fluffy and not so sickly sweet as Egg ‘n’ Spoon.

Also important to note is that a carton of Eggjoyables are €2.50 compared to the RRP of €5 for a pack of Egg ‘n’ Spoon. They’re definitely more reasonable and much better value. Having said that; if the Cadbury version were the same price as Aldi, I’d still opt for the latter — to me, they taste much better and (at least in this case) that’s what matters the most!
