FRY-UP FLAVOUR EASTER EGGS
The roars of delight that went up in the City A.M. offices on hearing of breakfast-themed Artisan du Chocolat easter eggs (see pic below) were probably heard across the City. Bacon, mushroom and tomato may not sound like the most enticing trio of chocolate flavours to normal people, but to us they certainly sound worth a try. English Breakfast Eggs (trio) £7.50. Exclusively at Selfridges London. Call 0800 123400.
