If you’re anything like me, you’re always leaving things until the last minute! True to form, Easter wasn’t any different! I’ve never really been one to buy Easters eggs, however this year I felt inspired!

I shopped around and found a small selection of chocolate eggs, ranging in price, to suit anyone and any need. Easter isn’t just for kids, folks.

Choc-A-Bloc American Dreamcake Egg

I found this egg in Tesco and was instantly drawn to it. I’m all for an Easter egg that is a bit different and isn’t just your standard chocolate. It kind of reminded me of advent calendar chocolate! It has cookie and caramel pieces in it, which give it a nice texture. It’s actually quite thick so it’s really good value against the price.

I got this egg from Tesco for £5! Reasonable, right?

Thorntons Pecan Pie Egg

I’m always a fan of Thorntons chocolates, so I had to include one of their chocolate eggs. When I cracked this egg, you could instantly smell the maple! The chocolate is maple flavoured and it has toffee and pecans running throughout it. I wanted this to be a bit crunchier, but it’s not bad! You also get a nice selection of chocolates to go with it. I did wish the chocolates came in their own packet though, so I could save them for later. Like that would normally happen.

I got this egg from Tesco for £8. You can get it from Thorntons, but it’s actually more expensive!

M&S Gold and Velvet Sculptured Egglast minute easter egg ideas

I’m sure you can agree, M&S always win the Easter egg game! Pretty much all of their eggs look amazing! I was instantly drawn to this egg, purely because of how it looked! This egg was almost too pretty to crack, but it had to be done. The chocolate itself isn’t anything special, you get half a milk egg and half a dark egg. You’re basically paying for the ‘wow’ factor. The golden praline eggs are delicious though!

It’s a little bit on the pricier side, and clocks in at £18!

Hotel Chocolat Rocky Road to Caramel Egg

Last but definitely not least, the Hotel Chocolat egg! Now, if you know me, you’ll know I love Hotel Chocolat. I had to include one of their eggs in this haul. This egg comes in a lovely box and has a selection of chocolates inside the egg! It’s actually a really thick egg and comes in two different flavours: half caramel, half milk with puffed rice. The selection of chocolates is great and the praline bunnies are amazing!

It’s the most expensive egg I purchased at a grand total of £27, but it’s definitely worth it!

As you know by now, I tried all of these eggs for your benefit, completely for your benefit. I couldn’t lie if I tried. I know some of these eggs are a bit extravagant, but if all else fails, you can’t go wrong with a cheeky little Cadburys egg! These always tend to be on offer in a supermarket and are very reasonably priced!

Let me know what Easter eggs you have bought!

Until next time,

    I gave up chocolate for lent (and have regretted it ever since…) and now I’m just sat here drooling. Easter can’t come fast enough! The Thorntons pecan egg sounds gorgeous 😀
