If you’re serious about your chocolate, then Easter is probably one of your favourite times of the year. Chocolate is everywhere. You go to the supermarket to buy some bits for dinner and find yourself stood at the Easter egg display with just no idea how you got there (or so you say).
We have Easter eggs as they are a symbol of new life, but originally, eating eggs was not allowed by church leaders during the week leading up to Easter. Consequently, they were developed into chocolate versions way back in the 19th Century.
When Is Easter 2020?
Easter Sunday 2020 falls on April 12th, which is a couple of weeks earlier than last year. So while you do not need to wait as long to get your sweet fix, you also should get a head start on finding your perfect egg or the ideal gift for the chocolate lover in your life. And the ones below are standouts:
The Best Easter Eggs For 2020
- BEST EXTRAVAGANT: Hotel Chocolat The Ostrich Easter Egg
Over a kilo of chocolate comes together in this lovely little presentation box. You get the all-important egg, as well as a tray of some of Hotel Chocolat’s most loved recipes. The perfect present (or treat for yourself, of course).
- BEST FOR THE ADULTS: Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb Ginger Liqueur and Mini Chocolate Eggs
They love gin as much as they love chocolate, so this little bundle of a traditional egg and a 50cl bottle serving will be well-received all around. There are plenty of other flavours available, too.
- BEST FOR KIDS: Hotel Chocolat Easter Pen Pals
It will probably all be eaten before they see the designs even if you tell them to go easy, but still. If you want something a little different, it is the perfect alternative to the traditional egg shape.
- BEST FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT: Holdsworth Gold Speckled Milk Chocolate Easter Egg
This shimmery gold speckled easter egg is sure to catch the attention of the recipient. Not only is the presentation top notch, but the taste is quite delectable. There are milk, white and dark chocolate sea salt caramel truffles. It is definitely one of the prettiest and tasty available, almost too good to crack open in fact.
- BEST FOR TRADITIONALISTS: Lindt Milk Chocolate Easter Egg and Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles
Classic design and ideal gift in a premium gift box. This is great for adults and children alike. The egg is made of Lindt milk chocolate and the truffles are Lindor milk chocolate with a smooth centre. This is the best easter gift for those who enjoy the traditional chocolate Easter egg and don’t like to second guess which gift to eat.
- BEST FOR VEGANS: Montezuma’s Absolute Black Vegan Button Easter Egg
Dairy-free, vegan-friendly Easter egg. It is made of 100% cocoa and filled with 100% cocoa buttons.
- BEST FOR EASTER EGG HUNTS: Farhi Foiled Easter Eggs Assortment
All the eggs needed for the trail, and a present for the winner. If you have a lot of kids to entertain (big or little), then it’ll mean less effort for you.
- BEST FOR THE SWEET LOVERS: Natalie Double Fruit Jelly Easter Eggs
Some people much prefer candy as opposed to chocolate, and these sweets are egg-shaped, so the idea is there, but there is not a drop of chocolate in sight.
- BEST FOR THE NON-SWEET LOVERS: Edinburgh Preserves Ploughmans Box
Some people don’t like chocolate or sweets, and those who don’t likely love cheese. If this is indeed the case, this condiment package will be the perfect accompaniment to their next savoury snack night.
