Founder of NLC, Norman Love, one of North America’s Top 10 Chocolatiers, says his Easter eggs are a treasured tradition.

“The quality and taste of the Easter egg chocolates delight children of all ages and either creates new traditions or recall memories of Easter pasts,” Love says. “At Norman Love Confections, we strive to produce flavors that are steeped in American traditions but are presented with a contemporary and artistic twist.”

Following is a description of the 2010 Easter Limited Edition Chocolate Egg Flavors:

  • White Chocolate Raspberry: Our seasonal lover’s favorite takes a permanent place in our hearts with tart fresh raspberry swirled into sweet creamy white chocolate.
  • Tahitian Caramel: It begins with a layer of creamy milk chocolate filled with a buttery caramel center that oozes the essence of vanilla beans.
  • Cookies ‘N’ Cream: The fine dark chocolate crunch and smooth white filling you’d expect from this all-time favorite treat in a chocolate-speckled egg.
  • 70% Complexite: A dark chocolate lovers dream, rich 70% dark chocolate made from the blend of nine select beans each roasted to perfection and conveying the hints of fruit, floral, and earthy spice naturally present in the chocolate.
  • Strawberry: A heavenly couverture saturated with ripe strawberries make a creamy filling that will feel like summer all year long.
  • Vanilla Cupcake: Sweet cream and vanilla frosting ganache mixed with tiny cake pieces in a perfect little bite.
  • Peanut Butter: Creamy smooth Georgian peanuts combined with fine rich Swiss chocolate – a true classic done with an artistic twist.
