Zitner’s Butter Krak Egg

I got this Butter Krak confection from my friend Laurel. I don’t remember where she bought it. I think she mostly bought it because the name’s hilarious.

Neither the wrapper nor the name gave much indication as to exactly what this was. The ingredients list did list “cocoanut”. Typo or purposeful pun?

So what is a “Butter Krak” egg?

It turned out to be a dark chocolate log filled with a coconut and vanilla butter cream.

The dark chocolate that made up the shell had bits of coconut mixed in. It was pretty good on its own: a decent depth of chocolate flavor with a sweetly nutty finish.

Unfortunately for the dark chocolate shell, the center filling was a nuclear sugar bomb. It was so sweet that it burned my throat.

The white filling was basically a butter cream with bits of coconut mixed in. It had a dry, pasty, grainy texture with some chewy coconut flakes mixed in.

There was some nice coconut flavor hidden in there, but the balance was totally wrong. The cloy of the filling totally overwhelmed everything from the coconut to the chocolate shell.

I’m glad Laurel bought this for me. I did eat the whole thing over several sessions and with liberal quantities of water to wash it down, but it’s just too sweet. A .

If you want a second opinion, Candy Addict reviewed this a few years ago.

    That is terribly sad! Your friend surely sent it to you for the name purpose only. That poor neglected EGG was sitting around for a loooooooooong time. Now is the perfect time to enjoy these tasty treats.

    Zitner’s make the absolute BEST egg around. I could eat a box a day if my diet included it! They are a little hard to find, but when I do – I’m a repeat customer. I believe they are freezable too, but mine never last that long. My mouth is watering as I type this…YUM!!!
