my in-laws sent us a care package full of finnish goodies, including this:
it's an egg.
or... is it?
taking a closer look...
solid almond-nut nougat inside.
when we lived in finland, i looked forward to the easter season so i could procure one of these delicious chocolate eggs. this is one of the oldest product lines from fazer (the chocolate company), dating back to 1896. the eggs were apparently even eaten by the russian royal family.
