I was excited when I heard Zitners was going to sell their amazing Dark Chocolate Coconut eggs
around Christmas as well as Easter. I got an e-mail two weeks ago and immediately ordered
a dozen boxes of the Zitner's Krak Kringle Delights 24 Count. Upon opening the box the first thing I
noticed was they used milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate. Despite being disappointed I tried
an egg and as I suspected the eggs made with milk chocolate are a poor imitation of the eggs
made at Easter with dark chocolate. I'm 71 years old and have been eating this candy most of
my life. Despite having left Philadelphia at 19, I haven't gone without my annual fix of the butter
Krak eggs a single year. Twenty five of those years were in the military where I served as far
east as Spain. As far West as Thailand and as far north as maybe 50 miles above the artic circle.
I can thank my mother for those care packages. This year I have been disappointed twice both at
Easter and now again Christmas. At Easter when I ordered 20 boxes of Butter Krak they were
all made with creamy coconut and this time with milk chocolate. Not sure what's going on but
in my opinion the candy in Dark Chocolate eggs rates an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10. I cant even
rate the milk chocolate eggs as I gave away the four boxes I always keep for myself.
ProsSelling the candy twice a year versus once a year.
ConsSwitching from Dark Chocolate to Milk Chocolate for the Christmas version of the Butter Krak eggs.
