Dairyfine Rocky Mallow Rubble Easter EggCoated with a rocky-road style mix of sweets including marshmallows and blackcurrant jelly sweets, this Easter egg looks very fun and colourful both in and outside the packaging.
The soft texture of the marshmallows goes great with the sweet flavour of the Belgian chocolate at first, but it can become a bit too sickly if you have more than a few bites in one go – maybe it’s a good incentive to exercise portion control?
You can also get this Easter egg in a Popping Candy version, but we preferred the textured of the Rocky Mallow Rubble.
Get it: £2.99, from Aldi.

With creamy, melt-in-the-mouth chocolate, this Easter egg has quite a thick shell and is also one of the sweetest we’ve tasted – so definitely one to buy for the sweet-tooths in your life.
Get it: £2.5, from Asda.
Lindt Gold Bunny Milk Chocolate 100g
You can’t go wrong with a classic Lindt bunny. However, this is a very small Easter egg so you’re not getting as much for your money compared with other brands – ideal if all you care about is good quality chocolate without breaking the bank.
Get it: £3, from Tesco.

The Eton Mess topping was surprisingly not sickly and the strawberries bits were a great addition to the white chocolate.

Moser Roth Delectable Duo Sharing Egg

Aldi’s Dairyfine Giant Chocolate Bunny
One of the most impressive things about this bunny is its size – we didn’t expect it to be so big! But good thing it is, because it’s hard to get enough of its rich and chunky chocolate. Definitely one to get if you’re after something that’s impressive-looking without being too pricey.
