18 Best Easter Eggs of 2018
Chocolate easter eggs don’t have to be boring! The days of the typical easter egg pack consisting of a hollow, bland chocolate egg with a chocolate bar or two thrown in are now in the distant past. There are many, many more interesting, better tasting, and simply far more extravagant easter eggs available on the market today. So we set out to discover them – the best easter eggs of 2018 that money can buy in the UK, and listed our findings here.
1. Half-dozen Golden Praline Eggs
A half-dozen eggs presented the way you’re used to seeing them. These are reall egg shells, emptied first before being filled with delicious praline chocolate, and painted in gorgeous gold. Crack open the golden shell just like a normal egg and enjoy the chocolate delight inside.
2. Pot Noodle Easter Egg
Pot Noodle isn’t really a brand you expect to produce an easter egg, but here we are – and it’s a bit of a stretch. Contains one milk chocolate egg, and a Pot Noodle branded ceramic mug. As the mug is both microwave and dishwasher safe, it makes the perfect mug for cooking up your next pot noodle.
3. Creme Egg Rugby Ball
4. Thorntons Lemon Meringue Easter Egg

6. Easter Egg for Dogs
We couldn’t possibly make a list of the best easter eggs of 2018 without including something for our pets. Now, everyone knows you don’t feed a dog chocolate. Which usually means that they can’t participate in easter eggs at all! Until the good folks over at Hatchwells decided to make an egg just for our furry friends. This egg is 100% carob, the dog-friendly and healthy alternative to chocolate.
7. 42 cm Giant Chocolate Easter Egg

9. Caramel Chocolate Easter Egg Sandwich

11. Reese’s Peanut Butter Creme Eggs
Reese’s have finally joined the easter egg market! The chocolate and peanut butter experts have made exactly what you would expect – a chocolate shell egg with their famous peanut butter creme stuffed in the centre. If you’re fed up of creme eggs, it’s time to switch over to these.
12. 3 Kg Mini Eggs Bag
Everyone loves mini eggs. However the biggest problem with them is how fast they disappear. It always feels like no bag is big enough! So here’s the solution. Your standard bag of mini eggs holds 90 grams. At 3Kg capacity, this gigantic bag holds 33 times that amount!!! That is a lot of mini eggs. We recommend you don’t eat them all in one sitting.
13. Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs
These eggs are handmade, using chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla cakes, along with buttercream and even champagne to create an amazing truffle with a delicions yellow yolk effect in the centre. The outside shell is covered in smooth Belgian chocolate, giving these eggs a stunning natural speckled egg effect. Available in quantities of 6, 12, or 18. Each egg is approximately 2cm in diameter.
14. Solid Chocolate Egg in Real Eggshell
This solid chocolate egg has been a part of Finnish easter tradition since 1896. Each egg is handmade in Finland. A real, hollowed out eggshell is filled with chocolate specialist Fazer’s deliciously creamy chocolate filling containing hazelnuts and almonds, creating a rich, solid chocolate easter egg.
