Now that we are in April, we can officially say that Easter is this month. Despite the shops being filled with Easter eggs since January in some cases, it is time to get shopping for all things Easter. I know that I have to leave it fairly last minute in our house as there is the temptation to break into them early, but I have been looking for some Easter eggs (or Easter related edible things), to get you some ideas and get them bought or ordered.
Are there any here that take your fancy? It would be great to hear what you think.
For The Savoury Over Sweet Fan: Cheese Egg
If you have someone in the family that definitely prefers savoury foods over sweet ones, then a chunky chocolate egg can be the last thing that they prefer. I know that too much chocolate at this time of year can be really unappealing for me, so a savoury option is always good. This creamy, tangy half egg is the world’s only blue cheese Easter Egg and is a pretty perfect addition for your Easter Sunday cheeseboard. I am a fan of blue cheese, it has to be said, but this one is pretty mild, so would work well for those that normally wouldn’t consider blue, as well. There is also a cheddar cheese eggs available this year
Egg from Butlers Cheeses, and you can buy from Ocado, Amazon, Booths, Sainsbury’s and Asda – £5
For the Lover of Luxury: Eggs from Prestat
If you have a someone in the house that enjoys the finer things in life, as well as some stunning combinations of eggs, then how about the following? From the new Ruby Chocolate Easter Egg (£17.50) and Popping Prosecco Easter Egg (£17.50) to the London Gin Easter Egg (£17.50) and Sea Salt Caramel Easter Egg (£17.50), Prestat (www.prestat.co.uk), chocolatier to Her Majesty The Queen, has a delicious range of beautifully packaged eggs to treat your loved ones to this Easter.
For the Creative Little Ones: Decorate Your Own Kit
If you have little ones in the house where a full egg can be a little much for them, then these egg ‘slices’ can be a nice idea, as well as the fact that they get to decorate the eggs with sweets too. Perfect if you have a few children that can share, as there are four flat egg slices. Can be a good thing to do together on Easter itself, or during the Easter school holidays.
Egg kit from Not on the High Street – £22
For Vegans or Those with Allergies
If you have someone in your home with a specific diet, such as vega or dairy-free, then it can feel daunting known where to start with Easter eggs for them. There are ones out there if you look, though. This one I have found from Hotel Chocolat, is smooth 70% dark chocolate, with added Tasmanian peppermint oil, and nibbly mint shards to give it a unique chocolate peppermint flavour.
Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Egg – £15 (the only allergen is soya).
For the Chocoholic: Solid Easter Egg
If you have someone in the house that loves Easter for all of its chocolatey goodness, then why not choose a solid egg this Easter? There aren’t many of them out there, so this white chocolate one could be just the thing. The handy thing is that it is divided into bite sized chunks for you (750g white chocolate in total).
You can buy this egg from the Solid Chocolate Company for £24.99
Have you made any plans for Easter this year? It is one of my favourite times of year, and just because of the bank holidays! 😉
