The Mignon chocolate egg is an Easter confectionery made by the Fazer company. Its distinctive feature is a filling of almond-hazelnut nougat inside a real eggshell. The Mignon is the second oldest Fazer product, dating back from 1896, when Karl Fazer brought the recipe from Germany. The eggshells of Mignon eggs originate from Finnish chicken coops and are emptied, cleaned, disinfected and dried before transporting to Fazer’s confectionary factory where every Mignon egg is filled by hand.
