This year’s selection of vegan Easter treats is bigger and better than ever before. With Easter just round the corner it’s time I shared a selection of my favourite chocolates…

The other day I walked into Holland and Barrett and couldn’t believe my eyes when I spotted the vast shelf of dairy-free treats. While they still have their Buy 1, Get 1 Half Price it’s well worth a look in your local store. But I also want to share with you some of the other unusual and exciting new treats on the market. Get ready for some chocolate induced happiness.

The Choices caramel egg includes some scrumptious caramel chocolates. Irresistibly cute bunnies are widely available too – we even spotted them in Tesco!
Choices also make a lovely, smaller-sized egg in white and ‘milk’ chocolate with a little bag of chocolate buttons. I don’t usually give my kids 150-200g of chocolate and say: ‘Here you go, enjoy!’. To me this child-friendly size somehow feels more consistent with the message I give them the rest of the year. I know, mean mummy! 😉
(left to right: £6.49, £1.25 and £2.79 Holland and Barrett)

Plamil are offering dairy free eggs (including a sugar free version) as well as a nice big bag of very pretty half eggs. Wouldn’t they look fab as part of an Easter afternoon tea? (£3.69 and 4.95 from Plamil)

If you are looking for a bargain, Holland and Barrett have already reduced their vegan egg to £3.50 and they are included in their special BOGOHP offer.

Vegan Nougat, Strawberry or Cappuccino Eggs come from the Vegan Bakery in Germany. You can order them from the Viva! shop or Vegantown (from £4.00)

Pretty half egg filled with peanut butter eggs. (£6.95 Viva!)

My favourite vegan offering this year, so beautiful and lovingly made. The egg includes edible decoration made with raspberry, blueberry and pistachio. Mr Bunny has a secret superfood filling and is flavoured with cardamom, anise, cinnamon and chilli. Wow!
(Both £6.50 Viva!)

There’s no way that this could possibly be vegan, right? Well, I did read the ingredients on Hotel Chocolat’s website and it really is luxury dairy-free indulgence! (£15 Hotel Chocolat)

Awww, look at these little faces! My lovely friend Jane let me and the boys try some of hers (that’s real friendship!). Hotel Chocolat advertise this range as ‘Milk-Free Milk’ and use almond powder instead of dairy milk powder. Personally, I think the chocolate tastes like a very nice dark chocolate. So if you prefer something a bit ‘milkier’ I would opt for Moo free or similar instead. (£5.50)

A square Easter Egg instead? Pure indulgence and perfectly cruelty-free.
(£25 Hotel Chocolat)

If you could pick anything from this list what would you choose?
Or did you spot something irresistible that everybody just has to see?
Hope you have a very happy Easter!

Lots of love,
