Six of the best ethical and eco-friendly Easter eggs this year

Let’s face it, on Easter Sunday the idea of yoghurt and granola for breakfast flies out the window. “GIVE US CHOCOLATE!” we all cry and by 11am we’ll be rolling around, feeling ever so slightly queasy but very happy. But, how ethical is your Easter indulgence? Luckily for us, free from, vegan, fair trade and sustainable eggs are growing in popularity year on year and there are now loads out there to choose from. We’ve selected a few of our favourites.

Montezuma Eco Organic Easter Egg (£8.99)

www.montezuma.co.uk

Made using ethically produced cocoa beans, Montezuma’s award winning eco range features a packaging made of biodegradable paper and a foil wrapping. This year, three different eggs are available - organic milk chocolate with butterscotch, organic dark chocolate with cocoa nibs and organic white chocolate with raspberry. They’re rich, chocolaty and wonderfully creamy.

This luxury Easter egg from Dorset based company Chococo is completely dairy free and uses Madagascan cashew nuts to give it a creamy, nutty finish.

It has a subtle flavour profile and is very moreish. It’s a really good choice if you like a slightly lighter chocolate.

Divine Popcorn Easter Egg (£10)

This gourmet Easter Egg is as indulgent as it sounds. The salted caramel popcorn is actually melted into the smooth and buttery chocolate shell of the egg, which along with crunchy popcorn morsels, tastes delish. It’s ethical and eco creds are good too. As with all Divine products, the egg is completely fair trade and packaging wise it’s plastic free.
