8 rainbow coloured milk chocolate eggs nestle next to 4 olive green dark chocolate nightingale eggs made using 71% cocoa Grenada Chocolate Company dark ‘sailboat’ chocolate (the last remaining chocolate from a batch that was sailed across the Atlantic by the Tres Hombres, a sail-only freighter.)
Each egg box contains:
- 4 x 40% cocoa sea salt milk chocolate eggs,
- 4 x 61% cocoa dark milk chocolate eggs
- 4 x 71% pure Grenada dark chocolate eggs.
With this flagship Easter product we wanted to do something to recognise the incredible work of NHS frontline nurses, and Madeleine Floyd’s beautiful drawings and descriptions were the perfect complement to these delicious eggs. To this end, at least £2 from each box sold will be donated to the Florence Nightingale Foundation which provides scholarships for trainee nurses.
The Nightingale is more often heard than seen. His flutey song is unquestionably beautiful with great variation in pitch and tempo. He performs through the dark and can use over 250 different phrases in his melodic songs.
Descriptions and artwork are taken from Madeleine Floyd’s ‘Birdsong’
