Press release, Tuesday 12th April: Easter is upon us and Deliveroo knows that not everyone will be chowing down on a predictable roast lamb dinner. No siree! Many will embrace takeaways instead - especially the humble spice bag. Nothing brings in a long weekend quite like those little joyful bags filled with deep-fried salt chilli chips and chicken goodness.
With that in mind, Deliveroo felt inspired to give spice bag lovers an extra treat this Easter - Ireland's first ever Spice Bag inspired Easter Egg. Deliveroo has teamed up with Saba and the chocolate experts at L'Art Du Chocolat to make this bonkers vision a reality.
This show stopping egg is made of Tropelia Noire - a decadently rich chocolate with a rounded flavour profile that has savoury notes - and hand rolled in fiery chillies. The fun doesn't stop there though, it is also encrusted with salt crystals of the finest quality and mounted on a spicy ganache evocative of spice bag flavouring. To top it all off, this beauty of an egg is adorned with zingy lime green shards that pack a flavourful punch and represent the fresh notes in a spice bag.
This one-of-a-kind egg will be available exclusively to Saba customers who order through Deliveroo. A limited amount of eggs will be gifted to punters who order spice bags over Easter weekend. A FREE spice bag easter egg - imagine that! Huzzah!
Nicolas Bateau, chocolatier and co-founder of L'art Du Chocolat: "It's not everyday you're challenged with turning an Irish takeaway classic into a knockout easter egg. It's been a delight working with Deliveroo on this weird and wonderful egg and we hope Saba's spice bag devotees enjoy it as much as we do."
Alan Cadden, Saba: "At Saba, we're passionate about spice bags. We love that Deliveroo gives this Irish phenomenon its due respect. We can't wait to delight some of our customers with this surprise treat this Easter!"
Arabella Jenkins, Deliveroo: "We go loco for spice bags at Deliveroo. So, naturally we wanted to pay homage to this behemoth of Irish takeaway culture with a very special easter egg. It's truly unique and sure to delight the senses."
