Behind the Scenes at Lir Chocolate for Tesco Finest

It’s Easter again, the time of year when the stores are filled to the rafters with hoards of chocolate eggs (we’re not complaining) – but if you’re looking for that extra special egg you won’t go far wrong with this little charmer – Tesco Finest’s Medley Easter Egg. Made with layer upon layer of different mouth-watering chocolate varieties including white chocolate raspberry and dark chocolate butterscotch, carefully packaged into beautiful wooden, keep sake boxes.

Last week we were presented with challenging task of shooting inside Lir Chocolate’s headquarters in Navan, Ireland to showcase these luxury, hand-crafted chocolate Easter Eggs for Tesco Finest – tough job…but we rose to the challenge!

Being surrounded by glorious vats of melted chocolate for the day was pretty much our idea of heaven and seeing the detailed craftsmanship that the welcoming team at Lir Chocolates put into their hand-made Easter Eggs was fascinating.

We’re not surprised to hear this week that Lir Chocolate has been given the Good House Keeping award for top Easter Egg 2014 for their Tesco Finest Medley Egg, after the Good House Keeping team munched through 500 different varieties of eggs to find the winner (lucky devils!)

Congratulations to Lir Chocolates and Tesco Finest on their win.

And look out for our film showcasing the making of this beautiful, artisan Easter Egg on our site later this month.
