When anyone says chocolate i’m sure one company comes into your head Cadburys!! Easter = Chocolate = look no further than cadburys. Everything you could possible need for easter whether it would be just simple eggs most of cadburys chocolates have an egg at easter, and when it’s easter we have those special ones that we have to wait until this time of year!!! cream eggs and mini eggs our favorites!! you can’t go wrong with one of thoses.
Cadburys do a great range of smaller chocolates if you’re planning an easter egg hunt, your cream eggs of course and the smaller individual foil wrapped there is a range available from daim bar to oreo. They even do an easter egg hunt pack with everything you need for a hunt from the clue cards to a range of different eggs for your little ones to find. great fun to be had.
Cadburys also have an egg that comes with its own icing so that you can decorator your very own easter egg. This kept some of ours quiet for a while, was easy to do and tasted great too, this is a great easter gift idea too.
Something a little different from Cadbury i’d the dairy milk egg and spoon, it’s like a real egg only with chocolate and milky mousse inside comes with its own spoon and in its very own egg box, great as you get to eat the shell too!!!
We love curries in our house and I’m talking proper ones, but to make them taste like they should involve a lot of spices and when i’m looking at recipes to make i always seem to be missing 1 or 2 of the spices.

These are a firm favourite with my brother in law, but it’s usually something we have at Christmas. Ferrero Rocher have a great easter range (which made my brother in law very happy!!) From a bunny shaped tin with the traditional Ferrero Rochers in to small eggs with different fillings in. They have different varieties too white chocolate and dark chocolate and One with just chocolate so no nut in the middle for the person (my dad) who always gives the nut away! These will make any easter event a little more upper class!!
Now in our household many of us can’t well shouldn’t have milk, some more serious than others my brother and mum and a couple of my cousins can’t have anything where was me and the girls and other family members can have the odd bit of chocolate or icecream, but not in a quantity, I remember when i was young the only easter egg that was around that my brother could have was an after eight one and he missed out on lots of things, chocolate being one of them.
The range nowadays is so much more it is great and it’s not just easter eggs, Holland and Barrett do a great range for all occasions of dairy free and vegan chocolates and ice cream from their own make to Moo Free (great name) . We were so pleased to get some of this to try and some other easter chocs not just eggs. Little chocolate bunnies and chicks and small chocolate eggs so this year you can involve everyone in easter hunt and not worry about the little ones having too much chocolate.
On our easter egg hunt day we like to do all different things as well as just the traditional hunt, from games to crafts, and hobby is a great place to go to get everything we need.

You can get ones in nests or with hats on a different colours too. Hobbycraft does a great range of everything you will need to make cards or decorations or even that unique present for someone, on rainy days we love to craft and Hobby craft is a great place to go to get ideas and kits as well as everything you need and not just for easter for any occasion.
