For many, this time of year is synonymous with the indulgence of decadent chocolate-filled snacks. However past years have seen vegan friends and those with intolerances left out of the chocolate extravaganza – well, no longer.
We’ve scoured the market to find the biggest selection of plant-based and free from Easter eggs to date.
From luxury chocolatiers, to our trusteed supermarket favourites, you’ll be able to find dairy, gluten and wheat-free varieties that taste as good as the real thing and in an almost endless array of flavour combinations. You really won’t know the difference.
There’s no egg-scuses now not to get cracking.

Chocolarder Gola 60% Oat Milk Easter Egg

This egg is made from just three ingredients; cocoa beans, unrefined raw sugar and gluten free oats and tastes as creamy as you would expect a milk chocolate variety to taste while being dairy-free.
H!P Oat Milk Salted Caramel Easter Egg
