From wonderfully unique to 'eggstremey' bonkers – we've picked our favourite quirky Easter eggs, including an avocado egg and one that pops like prosecco.
Sometimes ordinary chocolate eggs just don't cut it. If you're after something a bit different this Easter, we've tasted our way through a wide range to bring you our pick of this year's tastiest offbeat eggs.
Anyone who needs a regular caffeine fix will appreciate this egg. It is a rich espresso chocolate egg that contains a combination of white, milk and caramel chocolates as well as fine-ground Sumatran Arabica coffee, which adds a lovely crunch. The contrast between the sweet chocolate and the strong coffee makes for a creamy mocha taste. Available from Hotel Chocolat (£16).
Fizz fans, rejoice! This combination of smooth milk chocolate, popping candy and prosecco will add some sparkle to your Easter weekend. Take a bite and you'll start to notice the popping candy exploding in your mouth just like bubbles of prosecco on your tongue – and it actually tastes like it, too. Find prosecco-filled truffles stashed inside. Available from Ocado (£17.50).
Solid Egg by The Solid Chocolate Company
Finally, we've found an Easter egg with no hollow centre. Solid blocks of chocolate (pick from milk, dark, white, Colombian or caramel-flavoured) slot together like a delicious game of Jenga in an ingenius design. It's on the pricey side, however it weighs in at a hefty 700g, so there's plenty to go around. Available from The Solid Chocolate Egg Company (24.99).
Here's one for those who want to cut back on sugar while increasing their protein intake. Although not much to look at, we enjoyed the lovely, well balanced milky flavour and despite having 50% less sugar and four times the protein of a regular supermarket egg, you can hardly taste the difference. Available from Cocoa+ (£7.98).
Instead of a boring old plain chocolate shell, the interior of this gourmet milk chocolate egg is encrusted with clusters of Joe & Seph's salted caramel popcorn – a match made in heaven. We were seriously impressed by how thick the egg was, too, with huge chunks of popcorn evenly distributed throughout. Truly delicious! Available from Joe & Seph's (£10).
Dark chocolate avocado Easter egg by Waitrose
Brunch fans, listen up. This super thick chocolate egg is cleverly disguised as everyone's favourite toast topper – but don't worry, it doesn't actually taste of avocado. The green chocolate is creamy and sweet and tastes lovely against the rich, dark chocolate. Available from Waitrose (£8).
Mini eggs have had a posh makeover. These divine Italian treats are deliciously moreish and come in three flavours: dark chocolate, white amaretto chocolate and Gianduja milk chocolate – all with a toasted almond centre. They come beautifully presented inside a floral presentation tin, making it a lovely gift to hand over this Easter. Available from Lavolio (£12.50).
