We all know that Lindt bunnies are the staple of a good Easter but this year we’re in love with the cuddly, not chocolate kind. Lindt have launched the softest golden bunny with his own bell that has a secret stash of chocolate babies inside. This high quality soft toy is one to give to a child you truly adore and will be well received by all. We were, quite simply, blown away.
2. Ferrero Rocher
One chocolatier who is giving Lindt bunnies a run for their money is Ferrero Rocher. We were upset to learn of his passing this year but are thrilled that the company is going from strength to strength and carrying on with innovation. We love their hazelnut chocolate combinations and for the last 3 years Easter hasn’t been complete without Ferrero rabbits.
3. Elizabeth Shaw
More for the grown ups the Elizabeth Shaw eggs are generously sized and a treat to look forward to. In the signature flavours of mint and orange the quality was a lovely surprise.
Lakeland have some fabulous offerings this year from musical eggs to all you need for an epic Easter Egg Hunt. We were delighted with the value for money and spoilt for choice. The musical egg is also a treat to keep as it is held in a gorgeous pastel yellow tin, while the signs for the hunt are extremely high quality and can be used year after year. They also have a wonderful selection of mini eggs and other chocs.
If you know anyone that is lactose intolerant or follows a gluten free diet you need to shop at Choices this year. These dairy free eggs are grogeous and delicious ensuring no one misses out this Easter.
6. Lily O’Brien’s
Of course, this is more for adults but this really is a decadent treat. Along with the huge egg there’s a good selection of delectable chocolates to eat.
For years I’ve been sourcing big Kinder eggs from all over the globe. In 2004 I had my first and became hooked but they became notoriously difficult to get hold of. Now they’re available in Waitrose and I’m over the moon. I don’t need Hotel Chocolat , I’d just like a few of these please. Big egg, bigger surprise.
