I'm not sure why they call this a Gold Brick egg. After all bricks are most often square so the idea of having the term brick mixed with the term egg seems kind of silly. It could be that instead they mean the kind of gold brick like the people who don't work much when they're supposed to. Maybe it's saying that this treat is designed for people that should be working but would rather eat a chocolate Easter egg.

After one bite of this egg I'm thinking I'd rather be working. Funny thing is since I review candy eating this egg is kind of like working for me. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's not that great. It's basically filled with a dull flavourless chocolate type centre that is slightly different from the outside stuff. It also appears to have walnuts in it but it took me two bites to get to one. That and the walnuts pretty much ad zero flavour at all. They say that the outside is "dark chocolate" but I really don't taste it.

It seems that the stuff in the middle overpowers everything even though it's not very tasty at all. It's a strange thing to eat, and not very pleasant.
