A little bit of a surprise when I was shopping at the local supermarket this past week.
I was browsing the shelves and spotted a box of green apple cider liqueurs.
I thought they must be from the same company that makes Chocolates of the Week, but they didn’t look like that.
Instead, they looked like a pair of egg liques.
I could have sworn I saw a chocolatier put a label on the box and it said, “Made with the highest quality ingredients.”
And that was it.
The only thing missing was a label saying “Made by Chocolatiers.”
I am so glad I didn’t see a chomocolatie.
I’m not sure what to make of these eggs.
Egg liqueues are one of the few types of liqueuring in which the liqueurer does not just pour the ingredients into a bottle, but also adds a little bit to the product.
And I think that’s exactly what’s happening here.
The eggs were not made with eggs.
Instead of adding to the liquor, they are being added to the alcohol.
And it is not even a real egg liquour.
These are all just chocolats and the liques are just there as decoration for the packaging.
In fact, egg lisas are so common these days that some manufacturers even call them chocolated lisons.
(Chocolates are simply a fancy way of saying a candy wrapper made of sugar and chocolate.)
What do you think of this?
Are egg lijes an acceptable substitute for traditional liqueuries?
