Do you have a weakness for white chocolate or dream of a decadent dark chocolate, or are you partial to a bag of mini eggs? Well, we have good news for you: the wide variety of delicious vegan Easter eggs and other treats available this year is bound to satisfy all tastes.
Vegan Easter egg hunting is the only kind of hunting worth doing – so it’s time to get your hands on chocolate treats.
VEGAN EASTER EGGS AND CHOCOLATE
Meet Rabbert the Rabbit. With his long floppy ears and little tummy, he’s an adorable springtime pal. Nutmilk, made from 45% cacao and finely milled hazelnuts, achieves the same mellow taste and creamy texture that you’d expect from milk chocolate, but without the cruelty of dairy. Nice work, Rabbert!
Hoppin’ back on the scene for another year, Lindt’s vegan bunny is here to make your Easter wishes come true – or at least satisfy a chocolate craving! Here’s the signature smoothness you expect from Lindt, all wrapped up in golden foil.
Goupie Lemon Meringue Egg
Made with vegan marshmallows, candied lemon peel, lemon essential oil, and creamy Belgian chocolate, this unusual vegan Easter egg from Goupie is the perfect celebration of spring. It’s handmade with love in Kent.
Green & Black’s Organic Dark Chocolate Egg
If you’re a fiend for dark chocolate, Green & Black’s smooth dark chocolate egg will go down a treat. Pick one up at Waitrose.
Booja-Booja Hazelnut Easter Egg

This white chocolate egg with freeze-dried raspberry pieces comes with an extra treat: salted caramel chocolate truffles. We’ll take 10.
Made in the UK using certified cocoa and 100% renewable energy and with paper packaging, Plamil has brought out new Cocoabites. Flavours include these smooth orange ones as well as white chocolate, strawberry, and salted caramel. We’ll take one of each, thanks.
Doisy and Dam
Ballers, Buttons, and choc-covered peanuts (and a subscription service!) – Doisy and Dam has your treat cupboard stocked this Easter with its huge variety of delish vegan chocolates. Easter without them would be no fun!
Vegan honeycomb? We’re in! This trio of Bunnycomb bars, made from Rainforest Alliance, dairy-free “milk” chocolate with a filling of yummy vegan-friendly honeycomb toffee, is perfect for vegan Easter egg hunts – or to accompany a quiet coffee while hiding from vegan Easter egg hunts! No judgment here.
Mummy Meegz Chuckie Egg
Vegan crème egg? Don’t mind if I do! Mummy Meagz makes Easter feel like Christmas with these indulgent crème eggs. Inside the chocolate shell is a sweet, creamy filling with a gooey “yolk” in the centre. Hop to it, because these little beauties will likely sell out.
Tesco Free From Hot Cross Bun Chocolate Bar
The hybrid you didn’t know you needed in your life until just now. Why choose between the taste of smooth chocolate and hot cross bun spice and flavour? A problem you no longer have thanks to Tesco Free From.
ASDA Extra Special Free From Easter Egg Selection

Melt Strawberry Easter Egg
It may be one of the more pricey options for this year’s egg-straw-vaganza, but we think this giant strawberry made of creamy vegan milk chocolate and real fruit is berry nice indeed.
Whitakers Luxury Vegan Chocolate Truffles Selection
A 12-piece assortment of vegan chocolates including family favourites, such as raspberry cream and hazelnut praline, as well as more grown-up pleasers like Marc de Champagne – Whitakers has made the perfect mix-and-match box!
Prodigy Salted Caramel Chocolate Egg
Prodigy aims to reimagine chocolate to make it better for you and the planet, as well as being egg-credibly tasty! Plant-based, all-natural premium ingredients with no refined sugar or palm oil, these sensational little treats will sell out fast.
Celebrating Easter with vegan chocolate eggs and other treats is fun for everyone– and making the compassionate choice to avoid dairy and eggs spares animals immense suffering. Hens exploited by the egg industry are forced to live in cramped sheds and bred to lay an unnatural number of eggs, day after day. On dairy farms, cows are repeatedly, forcibly impregnated and never get to keep their babies. The short, miserable lives of both hens and cows end in an abattoir.
Chickens have unique personalities, love to play, and will run, jump, and sunbathe when given the chance. They are inquisitive and clever and make excellent parents. Humans have identified that chickens use more than 24 unique vocalisations to communicate, each of which has a distinct meaning, such as warning their companions about different types of predators. Unhatched chicks even cheep to their mothers from inside the egg. Chickens are fascinating animals!
Cows are gentle, intelligent, social animals, and each individual has their own distinctive moo that they use to express emotions like excitement or stress to their companions. A herd of cows has its own social structure and leaders. Find out more about cows’ milk and where it really comes from.
Just like all other animals, chickens and cows deserve to live free from abuse and suffering at Easter – and all year round. To do even more to help animals over Easter, why not order copies of PETA’s free vegan starter kit for your loved ones or nudge them to take our 30-day vegan pledge?
