The seasonal treats are made from a chocolate substitute

Helping put a spring in our step, the Easter celebrations are almost upon us with this year’s bank holiday weekend falling on 15-18 April.

The festive period is a time for food, family and of course, chocolate eggs. Whether you’re shopping for a vegan, the kids or are looking for a nut-free or luxury adult treat, we’ve rounded up the crème de la crème of each category ahead of the occasion. But what about the furry friends in the family?

If you’re wanting to engage your dog in the festivities too, plenty of brand’s offer tasty – and most importantly, safe – Easter treats for your pup to enjoy.

Made using carob, a dog-friendly alternative to chocolate, more and more paw-lickin’ good eggs are lining the shelves each year. And best of all, the choc substitute is packed full of nutrients.

Never wanting to neglect the dogs, we’ve rounded up the best canine-friendly Easter eggs so that they can join in on the cracking fun, too.
