Fruit-and-Nut Chocolate Egg
Didn't make it to Easter...
These taste like the ones my grandparents gave us every year as children (along with a coveted $5 bill. :-)

Ok, not great
I live around Chicago where I have access to fruit and nut eggs. I saw these and figured I would try them out. Firstly, they are heavy and a nice portion size. The are packaged nicely. However, the egg filling was not like the fruit and nut eggs have access to. Nice amount of walnuts, but tiny specks of cherries and I could not see any pineapple. The list of ingredients include a lot of corn syrup and things you can't pronounce. Not my cup of tea.

childhood Easter memory!
I am 60 years old. I remember receiving one of these along with regular Easter basket (another memory!) as a child and they are solid, heavy and very sweet and rich and Momma would put it in the fridge. We would eat a little at a time. Momma is 91 now I would love to send her one just for the memories. I thought they were gone forever!

I definitely recommend for a unique Easter treat, it's not something you find anywhere. I gave one to my mother last year, and she told me that it was the first one she'd seen in over 50 years, when she was a child in Chicago. I vastly prefer the dark chocolate ones; the milk chocolate are a bit sweet for my taste.

My wife and my Mother in Law both enjoyed their Fruit and Nut eggs very much.

Good easter Surprise
We really enjoyed this surprising treat. It is VERY heavy (1/2 #), very attractive, and quite delicious. We sliced it into thin slices, each one a tasty morsel of nougat, fruit and nut and a coating of chocolate. We gave an egg to each of our children's families as well.

I thought they were gone forever
Well when I was a child I always received a Fruit and Nut egg from the Easter Bunny. I so loved them, would only have a slice at a time and kept it in the fridge. When that co. went out of business I thought they were gone forever, but this year I get my memories back and a sweet treat too, thank you!

Reminder of days past
I looked everywhere for a fruit and nut egg, they were always my favorite. They are very hard to find, thank you Vermont Country Store for remembering days past. These were full of fruit, tasty, and very reasonably priced.
