British Company Offers Enormous Chocolate ‘Game of Thrones’ Dragon Eggs
Fans of HBO’s hit fantasy show “Game of Thrones” know that winter is coming. And British fans who use the food-delivery service Deliveroo can now order white-chocolate dragon eggs to chomp while they watch the long-awaited final season.
If you’ve watched the show, you know that Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) received three dragon eggs as a wedding gift when she married Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa, aka Aquaman, aka one of the hottest actors around). And speaking of hot, the eggs and Daenerys all survive Drogo’s funeral pyre, and the heat helps the supposedly petrified eggs hatch into three dragons – Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion.
“Easter is coming and so is the final series of our favorite blood-soaked romp,” Joe Groves of Deliveroo said in a statement. “We see huge spikes of orders around season premieres and finales and we thought what better way to celebrate hardcore fans than with these amazing scaley creations.”
The eggs are made of fairtrade white chocolate and are hand-painted in three different color patterns to look like the three eggs from the show. They’ll be offered in a special Deliveroo temporary section called The Hatchery. The eggs will be here only for one week, from April 14, which is the day the show’s eighth and final season comes to HBO, through Easter Sunday, April 21. And they’re huge – 2.2 pounds (1 kilo) and 7.8 inches (20 cm) high.
And you don’t need to have a treasure chest of gold dragons or silver stags (money in Westeros) – the eggs are only 80 pence apiece (about $1.05 in U.S. money). But you do have to be in a Deliveroo delivery area in London, Manchester and Leeds, which lets us non-Brits out.
This isn’t the first time Deliveroo has made a culinary trip to Westeros. In 2017, the site partnered with Ben Hawkey, the actor who played Arya Stark’s friend, baker Hot Pie, and sold Direwolf-shaped loaves of bread. While Americans might be out of luck with the dragon eggs, maybe the “Game of Thrones” Oreos will soothe their Yankee stomachs. And while they await season eight, fans can check out the best food moments in Game of Thrones so far.
