JAGERMEISTER has created a cracking combo this Easter – a boozy chocolate “creme egg” filled with cream infused by its liqueur – but you’ll need ID to buy them.
The tipple, which is made from 56 different herbs, is normally paired with Red Bull to make a Jagerbomb.
Three years ago the German drinks maker teased fans with an April Fool’s joke about a Jagermeister egg – but now they are being created for real.
The Sun has now tried the egg and we can confirm that unlike a creme egg, the filling is all one colour; a creamy brown, and the texture is indeed smoother and lighter than a creme egg yolk.
Taste-wise it’s delicious – more like the velvety richness of Baileys than the overpowering taste of Jagermeister – and the chocolate shell is thinner than a creme egg.
At 38g the eggs are also slightly smaller than a Cadbury creme egg, which weighs in at 40g.
A set of two eggs with two Jagermeister shot glasses and a 10cl bottle of Jagermeister cost £9.99 and they’ll be available from 10am today (Thursday March 28) on the Jagermeister website.
But you’ll have to be quick as there’s only 250 sets available.
Obviously, they cost a lot more than a Cadbury creme egg, which cost 50p each.
As the eggs contain 3 per cent alcohol, you’ll also need proof of age to buy them.
Jagermeister says it will accept a UK driving licence or passport and you’ll have to upload a picture of this during the transaction via a third party called Yoti.
Sadly, Jagermeister couldn’t tell us how many calories are in each egg but an adult male should have around 2,500 a day while a woman should have around 2,000, according to NHS guidelines.
A 40g Cadbury Creme Egg contains 177 calories.
Tim Hawley, innovation controller at Jagermeister UK, said: “The last three years we’ve been inundated with customers demanding the #JagerEgg, we’ve had everything from desperate direct messages to pleading phone calls.
“It’s personally kept me up at night thinking about all those people tossing and turning, dreaming of the #JagerEgg that never was – so this is for them.”
Wetherspoon banned Jagerbombs last year as its Brexiteer boss axed European booze from his pubs.
The pub chain swapped the popular tipple for a drink called Strika.
Meanwhile Prince William last year revealed that his hip flask was spiked with Jagerbomb at Submariners’ Remembrance reception.
