Now that pancake day is over, the official countdown to Easter can begin. And that only means one thing: it’s time to start thinking about which Easter eggs we’ll be indulging in this year.
Everyone knows that the best things about Easter are the delicious hot cross buns (which are available in a plethora of different flavours this year) and the endless chocolate.
For some odd but magical reason that we’re totally not complaining about, chocolate shaped eggs taste better than ordinary chocolate. Are we right? That’s why Easter is all the more special for chocoholics, as it is an excuse to do what we do best – stuff our faces with our favourite sweet treat.
But as the years have gone by, the Easter egg game has changed. Gone are the days where we’d just get a simple chocolate egg and be happy with it. Today, the options are endless. Whether you’re into alcohol-infused eggs, Marrmite-flavoured eggs, avocado inspired ones or even scotch egg flavours, there is something for everyone. And that goes for size and dietary requirements too – so the decision is just as tough if you’re vegan or dairy-free too.
Luckily, we’re here to help you filter through the options by presenting you with some of the most exciting alternative Easter eggs on offer this year.
From Waitrose to Aldi, all of the nation’s favourite supermarkets are pulling out all the stops in the lead to Easter Sunday on 21 April. So without any further ado, here are the best of the bunch…
