Calling all chocoholics, get your sweet treats in early

The clocks have gone forward, which means spring is very much upon us and there’s now less than a week to go until Easter Sunday, which falls on 17 April this year.

Whether you honour it for its religious sentiments or simply enjoy the long weekend, for many, food is a massive part of the celebration – be that delicious hot cross buns, spiced biscuits or roasted lamb.

But lest we forget Easter eggs – an eggcellent treat that is an integral part of the festive weekend. Whether you opt for something decadent and luxurious or a supermarket delight, there is a huge number to choose from.

Chocolatiers have all really upped their games in recent years. No longer just an egg wrapped in tinfoil, brands have opted for plastic-free packaging, inventive recipes, extra treats and so much more.

With so many on offer, we’ve created a definitive guide to the Easter eggs worth knowing about this year. From the large and outlandish to vegan-friendly options, here’s the lowdown on these cracking delights that you can order online and have delivered directly to your door.
