Finished all your Valentine’s chocolates now? Good news, it is time to think about Easter chocolates!!
After a serious Easter egg fail last year I am making sure I don’t miss out again.
And so you don’t miss out either here’s what vegan eggs you can pick up this year (please note some of the brands mentioned below carry ‘may contain’ warnings so always check the packaging if you prefer to avoid products that may be cross contaminated):
This year they don’t appear to have another £40 monster egg that they did last year, instead:
They also have a couple of other vegan Easter themed chocolates.
If there’s one egg you can rely on seeing every year it’s this one.
The mini eggs are perfect for hiding all over the house for a real Easter egg hunt, although I doubt the Lil Man is going to be keen on dark chocolate.
The prettiest eggs ever? Who wouldn’t be happy to find a beautiful hand crafted egg filled with delicious Booja Booja truffles during an egg hunt? They come in different flavours and two different sizes, shop around for the best prices.
There are 3 Easter eggs under their Choices range, caramel, a ‘milk’ chocolate and a white chocolate. You can pick these up at selected Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Holland & Barrett and A Bar of Chocolate.
They also have some dark chocolate bunnies which are suitable for vegans.
They appear to have one egg that may be suitable, although ingredients are not listed on the website.
They have several dark chocolate eggs but you might be put off by their confusing ‘no milk’ listed in the ingredients, yet ‘contains milk’ labelling.
Wendy’s hand made vegan Easter egg combo has already sold out! But you can still get hold of her cream eggs and she also has some bunny chocolate too.
Also look out for ‘free from/dairy free’ eggs at larger supermarkets. You may find own branded options or Kinnerton who do a dark chocolate egg, it doesn’t look like they are doing their character children’s versions this year though.
Something I definitely want to do next year as it’s tricky finding eggs for the Lil Man because of his nut allergy. Look out for Easter egg moulds in cooking supply shops/online (Lakeland, Ebay etc) to make your own, melt down vegan chocolate, then fill them up with treats of your own choosing also. Sounds easy peasy and fun to me. 🙂
Let me know if I have missed anything!
