  • Listen to our latest podcast on 'Have our taste standards been ruined by mass produced food?' here:

    • Ha! you guy couldn't afford one from Betty's

    • I'd love to see you guys taste test some army and space MRE's. Could be funny to see the chef's react :D

    • I listened to the podcast and did have one question... does sorted consider vegan food a trend or a movement?

    • You guys should've made them try the Ruby chocolate egg by kitkat, think it would have been interesting to see them try it

    • Pooh! You have to subscribe to hear the podcasts. I can't afford it right now.

  • Next gadget to test - melon slicer cutter tool!!

  • I am interested in the theme of sustainable food, which was briefly touched here.

  • I do think there's some amount of change in food standards due to manufactured goods. But I also know that it's not universal. Like chocolate you get in america is just not as good as in other countries, and I don't mean like american brand chocolate I mean kitkats you get in euron are made with higher level chocolate then you get in america. Also the food you can get in a convenience store in japan is just so much better then what is available in america. (do note that all of this is just based off of personal experience from the perspective of an american who travels some)

  • The way Ben says "chocolate" makes me both hungry and horny

  • Ben looked cuter this time😂😂

  • Omg I thought Ben ate the usb cord at 6:00

  • I've had one of those giant Lindt bunnies; it was wonderful and took me months to eat.

  • Maybe I'm missing something but you said the Lindt Easter Bunny costs £55.89, while the link you gave us sells it for £39.99, plus free delivery, so I'm wondering why there is such a big difference?

  • Just the whole section for the chocolate bunny was funny moment after funny moment. Who knew chocolate bunnies could be so funny.

  • What kind of heartless son of a b*** makes a gigantic "magnificent" 20p easter egg and puts NOTHING in it?

  • ‘...the Swiss make good cuckoo clocks...’ NO THEY DON’T! They’re not Swiss! They are from Germany (Black Forest). Total exasperation.

  • “Your family, you can share with your mouth” Oh terrible wording

  • love the video, was on the fence about getting my Mum a Hotel Chocolate egg but this convinced me.

  • 4:06 made my Easter.

  • Kinda sad they stopped making their normal recipe videos. Now everything is battles, reviews and just a lot of madness surrounding food. It's become impossible to use SortedFood as a reference for new recipes, because there's almost no such videos left. Big Night In was amazing, or even recipe's with secret ingredients (like mayonnaise in cake!) please bring back more videos like those please.


  • I totally agree with Ben - for some companies, they call it done at 'chocolate' and 'egg-shaped', whether that chocolate is good or NOT. Like - I'm just gonna say it - Kinder Eggs are grosssss and taste like cardboard. I think the reason most people like them is because they're illegal here so it's illicit or whatever but - the candy freaking sucks lol

  • Who else is up at 11pm on Easter Sunday watching this feeling sick.

  • A few years ago my dad got one of the 1kg lindt bunnies for £25 just after Easter, so that makes it pretty much worth it

  • You should get gordon ramsay on the show

  • Who in the name of God thinks lint chocolet is good...are we sure they are chefs...

  • i enjoyed that one very much. happy easter guys

  • About the dadjoke. My grandma once knew a poor lady who actually experienced that exact scenario with a patient she cared for 😫🤢🥜🍫

  • 8:55 Who's blowing into their mic? Come on, own up

  • Those Lindt bunnies are thirty quid via the link and RRP is £40, so not sure where that price came from. Keep'em in your wishlist for a couple of months and they'll be about £25. Still WAY too much but then again I do want everything for a quid.

  • Is it possible to get old sorted books?

  • Now I want to run out and buy some chocolate....

  • Are quid and pounds the same thing?

  • I once spent Easter Sunday in Brugge. Had the pleasure of going to a few chocolate shops and get the 'discounted' Belgian easter eggs. They were of such a high standard, I haven't been able to compare or eat anything mass produced since then.

  • Jesus how expensive is the Lindt bunny? I'd pay 36€ for that here in Austria damnit.

  • Ha! you guy couldn't afford one from Betty's

  • I would love to see you guys take on some calorie-friendly dishes!!

  • I miss Mike

  • Is Ben describing that Easter egg as "MORE-ISH" or "MOORISH"? Help my yankee ears.

  • I think ill stick to the £1 easter eggs at morrisons

  • 07:13: Insert *You're doing great sweetie meme* 😂

  • I prefer dark chocolate, so only the eco egg would be something I might get. Although to buy something egg-shaped (or rabbit-shaped) during Easter JUST because it's Easter is a waste of money.

  • The only thing that could make Lindt chocolate bunnies better is if they were filled with their truffle filling.

  • You british fucks. Give me the old intro music back.

  • Come for James dressed as an Easter bunny; stay for Barry getting irrationally angry at Ben for eating chocolate with a knife

  • Once my parents brought me a hotel chocolat easter egg, but I was away for Easter and they got drunk and ate it - I only found out years later when we were walking past one of the shops and my dad was like "oh remember when we got you an egg from there?" Then silence as he realised what he'd done 😂 I couldn't even be mad because honestly I'd have done exactly the same 😂

  • Glad to hear the hotel chocolate egg is super :D got a voucher for there on my birthday and saved it for my own Easter egg, can’t wait to try it! 🤤

  • Im from Brazil and, in a few days, i'll be going to London for the first time, do you guys (from Sorted) have a favorite restaurant to reccomend? (I really wish i could meet any of you)

  • “I’m all for cutting back on plastic” Ben says, whilst sitting in a big, plastic chicken suit

  • I would probably not get any of these mainly because they are all so big (except the last one) that they would go stale before we finished them. I prefer bite-sized chocolates.

  • Odd question, what's the song that is played when the Venchi egg is reviewed??

  • I've used a knife to cut a Hotel Chocolat egg 😂 pretentious or not, you decide..

  • I love James' teeth. He looks so mischievous when he grins.

  • montezuma is penggggg and they do a lot of dairy free options which is fab! and i think they do student discount which is always a bonus

  • You should review the Ambiano kitchen equipment stuff from Aldi! It’s all quite cheap but I’ve no idea what the quality is like. It’s so tempting on special buy, would love to know if it’s worth it!

  • For egg number 4, how is it possible that one person thinks that it is so salty that he can't taste the chocolate, and the other says that it's too sweet (for chocolate, which is supposed to be sweet).

  • Used to be a chocolate taster for Hotel Chocolat - it was an interesting time - mostly gorgeous but there were some fails! (for me - others loved them) so maybe you could continue the Easter chocolate theme and either make your own chocolates (interesting combinations) OR taste test some filled chocolates

  • Chef vs chef Indian food battle.. No saag or curry pls

  • Could not have asked for better timing. "I like lindt... roadkill" suddenly an ad pops up: for that lindt rabbit.

  • Yo I just buy my kids regular eggs and dip them in chocolate it's better for you and I'm not wasting money like all you FOOLS

  • I think if someone gave me that Lindt bunny i'd cry

  • I bought some chocolate from venchi and was equally disappointed. Very bland and overly sweet, especially considering how much they charge!

  • So... James said he doesn't know much about chocolate, maybe a lot of people don't, but would like to... there's a place in the new Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross, where you can try (and buy at pretentious prices...) loads of different sorts, from different origins and types. (And a similar coffee place next door to it... the guy who runs that, owns both, and is quite passionate about it). It strikes me that so many people travel through Kings Cross/St Pancras every day, that it would be really great to see some kind of review of what you guys think the best places (in terms of quality for budget) are there, to eat or drink. So many great restaurants, and so many really new ones, plus oyster bar, vermoutheria etc...

  • Maybe a Spring inspired meal or relay challenge?

  • I’d try the Eco egg!

  • Hey! Where is “I’m gooey in the middle, babe let me bake”? Bring it back please! 😂😊😜😂

  • A suggestion: I'm assuming you have it in London. Go to a bar/brewery and brew your own beer. Then when it's ready decide on who made the best beer. Its quite fun though the quality of the beer changes depending on how much you drink during the process.

  • Wait till Easter all the reduced chocolate...quantity is a quality all its own

  • Suggestion: A food road trip. around Uk or Europe.

  • Luckily here in Australia, people feel the same about spending $80 au $ on the Lindt bunnies. So I can usually find them marked down after Easter. About $50 or (guess) £30-£35

  • The animation is between each segments are very GMM like. Those collabs have paid off 😂

  • nope. but when they go on sale afterward, might pick up a small bit. can't have the sugar :-(

  • What was that noise at 8:55

  • I would love to see the chefs review American food/treats.

  • Am I overdramatic for thinking only a monster would use a knife on chocolates when clearly you should bite in? Yes. Doesn't mean I'm wrong though.

  • This was an eggcellent choice of outfits. Well done!

  • Every purchase is a rotten waste of money, companies make profits from our rotten waste of money, if it was an eggcellent bargain for us then the companies would go bankrupt

  • Where are you getting your prices? I saw the giant Lindt bunny in Tesco tonight and it's £35

  • Great video lads! 👍👍I may treat myself to the Hotel Chocolat egg!😋

  • Easter traditions from around the world. HOT CROSS BUNS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!!

  • I like the aesthetics of Barry eating a 2ft tall chocolate egg while a storm tries to bring the building down. Very comfy.

  • ... james

  • Come to York and get an egg from Betty's!

  • mass produced foods are intentionally flavourless so the general masses can and will eat them. it's only in the last 40 years that we've started to diversify into seasonings, spices and ethnic flavours, if you eat industrial foods you get that industrial food bland level flavour, if you want good tastes and flavours you need to do it yourself or seek an artist.

  • That was *Adorable*

  • Giant Lindt Bunny?!!!!! I would buy that in a minute but we live in Florida and getting *anything* melty in the mail is such a bad idea. :(

  • Everytime they cut to ben and you hear air 😂😂 I can't breathe.

  • I miss cooking videos... recipes..

  • Upvote purely cause of the puns and costumes!

  • You missed the amazing Fazer mignon easter egg, it's an amazing chocolate, almond, hazelnut egg inside a real eggshell

  • So violent. Those poor chocolate bunnies. 🐇

  • Why is Ben in a hurricane in the latter half of the video?

  • Why do you love Prosecco much?

  • The sound of the air leaking from bens costume 😂

  • James starting with the bunny's butt

  • "hmm, what notes am I getting here?" 😂🤣

  • I'd love to see you guys taste test some army and space MRE's. Could be funny to see the chef's react :D

  • SORTED team - I really need an episode or segment about handling leftover ingredients ie. Buttermilk, egg whites or yolks etc. I absolutely love trying new things but hate blatant waste. I don't know what to use left over common ingredients, i made a quiche earlier this week with buttermilk, now i have a quart sitting in my fridge where do i substitute it into my everyday cooking? When i cook something that leaves me with extra separated yolks or whites where do i use them besides just cooking them up .

  • Honestly the only egg I'd concider is the eco egg, and not because it's eco! Dark chocolate is my favourite, and milk chocolate tends to get nauseating and too sweet really fast.

  • I bought the mini lindt bunny.

  • I was in the shops yesterday and seen a gin and tonic cake flavoring for cakes and instantly thought of ben

  • @sortedfood just wanted to thank you. I learned more about cooking than the school i learned cooking at. Goes to show how much you learn in just a single location.

  • Review food from Australia!

  • Lhint bunny’s are really common in Canada! Outaouais anyway. We had the small 15cm tall for years! And I can actually buy some at my gas-station.
