The Ins and Outs of our Josh Early Easter Eggs
Each spring, we at Josh Early Candies take great pride in
making our hand-rolled Easter eggs. Not only because they are a tradition for
our family business (we
use the same recipe developed over 80 years ago by Josh Early IV), but also
because they are a holiday tradition for so many of our customers.
We’ve shared with you how we make our trademark eggs in a previous blog post and thought it might be fun to give you some insider tips on how to identify the filling of our eggs just by looking at them. With 15 varieties of Easter eggs, including a sugar-free version of our Peanut Butter Nut Fudge Egg, we’ve assigned each variety their own pattern of decoration.
Pay close attention, though… While the differences are there, they are very, very subtle!
The Dark Chocolate Coconut Cream Egg (pictured above) features a continuous flourish of dark chocolate, while the Milk Chocolate Coconut Cream Egg features that same S-shaped flourish in milk chocolate. Both have the extra flower-and-leaf embellishment.
The Milk Chocolate variety shown here is decorated with a continuous flourish piped in dark chocolate. Conversely, the Dark Chocolate Shredded Coconut Egg will feature a similarly-shaped flourish in milk chocolate. Both will be further adorned with a candy flower and gold leaf.
It only made sense to decorate this variety of egg with a broken flourish of dark chocolate and two whole pecans in place of the candy flower and gold leaf. This way you get a little hint as to what’s inside.
We’re positive that you’ll fall in love with it after just
one bite. That is, if you haven’t already!
Our Chocolate Mousse
Eggs, available in either Milk or Dark Chocolate, offer you a double dose
of chocolate – first with the thick shell of chocolate on the outside and then
with our decadent chocolate mousse on the inside.
But that’s not all you’ll get on the inside! As a bonus, you’ll get an extra shot of sweetness from the gooey marshmallow filling within a filling.
To identify these Easter eggs, look for the drizzle of dark chocolate on the Milk Chocolate Mousse Egg and the drizzle of milk chocolate on the Dark Chocolate Mousse Egg with a candy flower placed at the center of each one.
We combined the peanut butter mousse with a wee bit of vanilla filling to create the ultimate Easter egg experience. We dare you to keep your hands off these eggs!
So… were you able to keep all the different varieties of Josh Early Easter Eggs straight? Which ones, available in 1/2-pound or 1-pound sizes, will make their way into your Easter baskets this year?
