Filled with dried cherries, pink peppercorns, sea salt and aerated milk chocolate, the Disco Egg by CXBO is an interactive dessert that requires the diner to smash it open with a spoon in order to reap its full benefits. Created by chef Brandon Olsen of the ever-expanding CXBO empire, the Disco Egg (otherwise known as "Ziggy Stardust") was also made available last Easter in a kids version, boasting gummy worms, jelly beans and aerated milk chocolate inside.
The paint splattered Disco Egg by CXBO can be enjoyed in Toronto one of two ways: as a dessert item at Chef Brandon Olsen's Ossington Street restaurant, La Banane, or at-home, available for purchase in limited quantities at any of the Chef's Chocolates by Brandon Olsen shops, located around the city.
