Fazer Mignon - Chocolate egg 52g

NOTE! MIGNON CHOCOLATE EGGS ARE MADE TO REAL EGG SHELLS, WHICH ARE EXTREMELY DELICATE. WE DO OUR BEST TO PACK THEM CAREFULLY, BUT CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THEY ARRIVE INTACT.

"Mignon - the Classic of Easter Eggs

Mignon eggs have been made for Easter Since 1896, skipping the WWII years. The Russian Czar's family enjoyed Mignon eggs for Easter. The recipe for the chocolatey egg is German, from where Karl Fazer brought the concept to Finland.

A Mignon egg has to weigh 54 grams. The scrutiny of the egg shells must therefore be diligent. Annually, 2.5 million egg shells are needed for production. The shells come from a company called Scaneggs, to where the eggs colelcted from all over Finland are brought in to be sorted. Only the best eggs of certain size are used for Mignon eggs.

By hand from the start to the end

After sorting, the egg is cleaned. A hole is drilled into the shell with a 10mm diamond head drill, a thin straw is inserted to the egg, through which the egg contents are removed by a machine. The contents are not wasted, but instead are used in industrial cooking. After emptying, the shells are washed, rinsed, sterilized, dried, and checked.

Heart of Chocolate, Shell of Egg

In Fazerila the shells are filled with a chocolate mix. Making the Mignon eggs takes about 30 people three months. Each phase of the filling is completely manual. The chocolate filling, 28 degrees Celsius, is pumped from a tank through a filling pipe into the shell. The filled egg goes into a cooling tunnel, where the chocolate hardens. The Mignon chocolate contains almonds, hazelnuts, sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla and cocoa. After this, the filling hole is sealed with sugar-milk powder plug.

The picture on the right: the Mignon filling is pumped manually through a pipe into the shell. A spotlight illuminates the shell so that the filling of the shell is easy to monitor.

When the Mignon egg is ready, it is manually packed into the containers and into boxes. The tasty treats are moved into the storehouse to await shipping everywhere around the world. The eggs are exported for example to Sweden, New Zealand, Japan, and Canada.

How To Eat A Mignon Egg?

There are many ways to eat a mignon egg. Some slice the egg and eat it piece by piece, others chew pieces right off the Mignon. Some put the whole Mignon into their mouths. The shell needs removing first, though. That is easily done by knocking the middle of the egg with a knife and then carefully removing the shell halves. There are, however, other styles. What is your style?"
