Other Treats You Can Try This Easter
If you’re craving more of a savoury snack this Easter instead of chocolate, you don't have to miss out on all the fun. Why not opt for something a little different to put your own spin on what Easter treats mean to you this year?
One option you could try is a Hot Cross Bun from Costa Coffee. This classic treat can't be overlooked, and when paired with melted vegan butter, it makes for a wonderfully tasty alternative (or addition - we didn't say you couldn't have both!) to the chocolate feast this Easter.
Looking for a chocolate twist, but without the chocolate egg? Sweet Freedom's chocolate spread is a great option to try on toast, bread, or in desserts (why not try swirled over vegan ice cream?) this spring.
We hope you've found some new favourites in this Easter egg round up, and that it's been helpful if you're looking to choose an option for yourself or gift one to a loved one. If you're looking to start an Easter egg hunt, there are also plenty of options in this list you could try!
