Lidl Ireland has unveiled its range of Deluxe Easter eggs handmade by Cavan-based chocolatier, Aine’s Handmade Chocolates.
Available in 163 Lidl stores nationwide, the artisan eggs have been crafted by chocolate experts who have been creating deliciously smooth and creamy handmade chocolate since 1999.
The UTZ-certified eggs are available in a number of varieties exclusive to Lidl including Deluxe Milk Chocolate or White Chocolate (€7.99), a decadent Deluxe Milk Chocolate and Honeycomb (€7.99) or for those looking for something a little unique, the Deluxe White Chocolate with Raspberries egg (€7.99) is sure to delight.
Lidl has invested €380,000 into the venture, and Aine’s Handmade Chocolates has supplied Lidl with more than 50,000 eggs for stores across the island to date.
“This partnership has been a game changer for our business,” said Ann Rudden, managing director, Aine’s Handmade Chocolates. “With the investment and unwavering support Lidl has offered us, we have been able to grow our capabilities and business significantly, allowing us to hire more employees and offer more selection to customers.
