As with any seasonal holiday and celebration, there are lots of delicious foods to enjoy over the Easter period. Of course, we can't get enough of roasted lamb and fresh vegetables and hot cross buns straight out of the oven, although our absolute favourite Easter treat has to be an Easter egg. A dream for chocoholics everywhere, the best Easter eggs not only include a hollow chocolate egg but also a selection of chocolate treats in the form of bars, bags and individually wrapped truffles to sweeten the deal.

Our Verdict: What Is The Best Easter Egg?

Everyone's tastes are different so our best egg may not be your favourite, that's why there are so many different eggs available to buy this year to cater for a wide range of preferences.

However, in our opinion, you just can't beat a classic and it's a tie for first place between the Cadbury Mini Eggs Easter Carton and the Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Egg. Both of these gifts include treats that you can't get for the majority of the year so we think you should make the most of having them around while you can.

Looking for something a bit more luxurious? We’d recommend taking a look at Hotel Chocolat’s Easter range. Not only will you find eggs with extra thick chocolate shells of different flavours, but they also have their signature chocolate ‘sandwiches’ and seasonal-themed chocolate boxes and hampers, so there’s something for everyone to suit different tastes and budgets.


When Is Easter 2024?

As the dates of Easter change each year, you may be wondering what date it falls on in 2024. This year, Easter Sunday is on 31 March. This means that Good Friday is set to be on 29 March and Easter Monday on 1 April. Good Friday and Easter Monday are bank holidays, so we have an extra long weekend to enjoy all the lovely stuff Easter brings.

Why Does Easter Change Every Year?

Easter falls on the first Sunday after the full Moon that occurs either on or after the spring equinox, which is why the dates of Easter change each year.
