Cleeve’s Irish Confectionery have developed a selection of delicious Easter eggs this spring that will make the perfect Easter gift for chocolate lovers and fans of the Cleeve’s brand, both young and old.
The Cleeve’s Easter Egg collection includes the best-selling variants within the range with the launch of the Cleeve’s Macaroon Egg, Cleeve’s Iced Caramels & Milk Chocolate Egg, and the Classic Irish Milk Chocolate Egg with Cleeve’s Chocolate Caramels.
Made using Cleeve’s traditional recipes and quality Irish dairy products sourced locally, the three Easter eggs are all foil-wrapped and presented in striking vintage-inspired packaging that can be recycled and disposed of responsibly. Each carton also gives the consumer some background information on the fascinating history and heritage behind the Cleeve’s brand.
Cleeve’s is Ireland’s longest surviving confectionery brand and has a history as rich as their chocolate. Established in 1882, the Cleeve's factory in Limerick had become the largest milk processing factory in Ireland by 1902 using the milk of over 10,000 cows. Back then, their focus was on cream and skim milk processing. However, the founder Sir Thomas Henry Cleeve's saw the value in diversifying and went on to manufacture butter, condensed milk and the brand’s beloved toffee and chocolate products.
Today, it is fitting to honour the memory of the Cleeve’s founder Sir Thomas Henry Cleeve by once again incorporating Irish milk into the Cleeve’s Easter Egg selection.
Classic Irish Milk Chocolate Easter Egg (RRP €6) is a mouth-watering milk chocolate egg made from the finest Irish dairy ingredients accompanied with the inclusion of luscious Cleeve’s Chocolate Caramels.
