The Large Easter Egg Round Up is the best gift guide to see you through the chocolate season - or are you treating yourself?
Are you looking for a showstopper this Easter?
We’ve done the hard work for you and scoured every delectable chocolatier, confectionary shop and overfilled food hall to put together the ultimate Large Easter Egg Round Up.
Enjoy – you can thank us later!
Thorntons, Marvellously Magnificent Milk Chocolate Egg, £20
For a long time, Thorntons has been our go-to Easter egg provider thanks to their delectable designs and personalised penmanship. Well, this year Thorntons has upped its game to bring us the stupendous spectacle showstopper that is the Marvellously Magnificent Milk Chocolate Egg. Weighing in at 850g it’s fitting that there is a Strong Man on the box and, naturally, there’s a prime spot for a personalised message.
Stas Chocolatier, Giant Sweetie Easter Egg, £20
Combine chocolate AND sweeties and you have a winner! With the recent release of an Easter collection, this Kentish chocolatier is certainly making an egg-celent debut. Eggs are available in five different sizes, starting at a modest 125g and working up to a ginormous Family Size 2000g – but will you be sharing this Easter?
Fortnum & Mason, The Colossal Egg, £90
As our favourite food hall in London, we had to include a glorious (if rather ostentatious) egg from Fortnum and Mason. As the heaviest egg in the round up, weighing in at 1400g, it’s less about size and more about density here. FIVE different flavoured shells make up this Russian doll-style egg which includes classic caramel, chocolate orange, chai, rose and violet and chocolate mint.
Lindt, Gold Bunny, £39.99
The Lindt gold bunny is as paramount to the Easter landscape as chocolate coins are to Christmas. As you can imagine, once we heard news that the elite chocolatier was introducing a colossal new rabbit to the range, we were sent into a frenzy. The patriarch of the Lindt bunny family is now a beautiful milk bunny weighing 1kg. Can you complete it in one sitting?
Hotel Chocolat, The Ostrich Egg, £75
Quite a hefty addition to the Easter egg range, (both in weight and price) The Ostrich Egg got our attention when Hotel Chocolat declared it ‘the big one’. Appropriately named after an egg that’s the size of 24 regular hen eggs, this bad boy is comprised of an extra-thick shell full of rice crispies and crunchy cookies. But wait until you get inside… it’s a piñata filled with 27 golden goodies!
Chokablok, Very Berry Eton Bling Egg, £10, available at Tesco
If an Easter egg has ‘bling’ in it, we are intrigued. This Belgian white chocolate shell is studded with moreish meringue drops, shiny silver malt balls and freeze-dried strawberry chunks scattered with plump raspberry pieces. Yeah, she deserves the title Queen of Eggs. If all that’s not enough, you will be pleased to hear she weighs in at 650g courtesy of the thickest Easter egg shell we have ever seen.
Cadbury, Large Caramel Easter Egg, £7.50
The classic Cadbury Caramel Easter Egg absolutely had to make it into our round up. By far the best value for money, and one that will not disappoint even the most discerning chocolate connoisseurs, this edition of the caramel range includes a large egg weighing over 330g and three delicious bars of molten goodness to keep you going throughout the day.
