Top 10 Easter Eggs for 2016
With Easter just around the corner, it’s nearly time to undergo the daunting task of choosing which Easter egg to buy for your loved ones, and of course, for yourself. Whether you are a sucker for white chocolate or a dark chocolate lover, there’s something for every Jane this year.
We have lovingly taste-tested a huge array of eggs already this year (after failing to give up choccy for lent) and have come up with a top ten of the tastiest Easter eggs for 2016.
So sit back, relax, and try not to drool too much over our handpicked selection…
10. Asda: Guinness Dark Chocolate Easter Egg/Whisky Collection Easter Eggs, £8.00
Is there a whisky fan in your family? Well look no further than Asda’s Guiness/Whiskey collection eggs. Not your typical Easter egg, make sure to snap these up quick as they are sure to fly off the shelves.
9. Cadbury’s: Dairy Milk Decorate Yourself Egg, £4.00
Whether you have kids, or fancy being a big kid, why not decorate your own Cadbury’s chocolate egg. New for 2016, this eggcellent addition to the master chocolatier’s Easter collection is sure to be a big hit.
8. Lidl: Deluxe Eton Mess Egg, £2.99
If you want an egg that tastes more expensive than it is, Lidl has the perfect choice. Whilst it might not 100% taste like Eton Mess, the white chocolate is very delicious and the egg looks attractive in it’s packaging.
7. Thorntons: Statement Easter Egg, £15.00
As luxury Easter eggs go, Thorntons would never let you down. This tasty milk chocolate egg comes with it’s own box of Thorntons Continentals and Thorntons Classics combined together. Delve into Tempting Toffee or enjoy the Viennese Truffle, Alpini Praline, Sicilian Lemon and many more.
6. Booja-Booja: Around Midnight Espresso Chocolate Truffles, £8.64
For those of you who would opt for chocolates rather than a big egg, we would suggest these midnight espresso truffles.
5. Benjamin Chocolatier: Dark Terre Easter Egg – Limited Edition, £22.50
If you’re willing to spend a bit more money of your egg this year, head over to the Benjamin Chocolatier website and drool away. For you eco warriors, this egg is uses fair trade 65% Madagascan chocolate with hints of cherry in the flavour. The base is even edible too.
4. Thorntons: Lemon Meringue White Chocolate egg, £10.00
Sometimes too many flavours can be the death of a very appetising looking egg, but thankfully Thornton’s got the mix just right with this one. It’s not everyday you’ll find a lemon meringue flavoured Easter Egg, and this one is certainly worthy of our top 5.
3. Chococo: Milk Chocolate Dinosaur Studded Egg, £9.95
Whilst we shouldn’t judge a book buy it’s cover, we would have bought this one purely for it’s stunning presentation. The perfect gift for fossil fans of all ages! The 43% Venezuelan milk chocolate egg has both light and dark chocolate marbling and can be broken open to a reveal mini dinosaur.
2. Green & Blacks Milk Easter Egg Selection, £10.99
Our runner-up wasn’t chosen for it’s creative display – although Green & Blacks always present their products in attractive boxes – it was chosen for it’s sublime taste. The added bonus of this set is the two extra 100g slabs of chocolate.
1. Selfridges: Artisan Du Chocolat, £25
Again, this one won us over with it’s quirky look. The dark chocolate egg is set in a carefully fashioned balloon shape and was daubed with a pink chocolate stripe, a trace of strawberry flavour. As for the balloon strings, if you aren’t a fan of liquorice you might want to steer clear of them.
