Phenomenal! This was one of the most exciting and delicious eggs we tasted across all categories. It's thick, luxurious and really delivers punchy flavours.

Divine's Smooth Dark with Raspberries Egg

The rich, smooth dark chocolate has delicious flecks of real raspberries sprinkled throughout. This brings a fruity punch on the palate and an enjoyable change in texture too. If you have any leftover, we recommend grating some of the chocolate over some Greek yogurt and fresh berries for a little added indulgence to your breakfast or afternoon snack.

BOOJA BOOJA hazelnut crunch chocolate truffles Easter egg

Something different

Specifications
Stockist: Whole Foods Market
Weight: 138g
Price: £24.99

While this is not a traditional Easter egg, some might prefer the combination of decadent truffles and a gorgeous, reusable egg-shaped box that is hand-painted and made in Kashmir. The hazelnut crunch organic truffles are simply divine. We really enjoyed the contrasting textures of rich, smooth chocolate and crunchy hazelnuts. Use the box to gift some homemade truffles or use it to store your jewellery.

Cocoa Libre Dairy Free Easter Orange Rice Milk and Dark Rabbit Slabs

Specifications
Stockist: Amazon
Weight: 180g (2-pack 90g each)
Price: £8.45

Those who love THAT chocolate-shaped orange at Christmas will love this slab. It has a delicious, vibrant orange flavour and a smooth creamy texture. We like the bunny design too and the thick slab feels more substantial than some eggs. The slab-shape it also ideal for sending in the post and is less likely to break in transit compared to an egg.

Egg Plant Kitchen

Fun design

Specifications
Stockist: M&S
Weight: 140g
Price : £6

A fun design which is sure to get a smile from your emoji-loving friends and family. The chocolate is smooth, rich and not too sweet. It wasn't as inventive in terms of flavour compared to other eggs but is a good no-thrills option.
