With Easter arriving late this year the anticipation for chocolate treats is building and we can’t get these eggs out of our head!

This time of year means something different to everyone, and by choosing Fairtrade chocolate you can stretch your Easter message a little further and support farmers and workers around the world. 

Here is our pick of treats to crack open this Easter. There is something to satisfy each of the chocoholics in your life. From a vegan flavour train, to some cakey collaborations and right back home to the cocoa pod, get ready to gorge for a cause! 

The Vegan Dark Chocolate Easter Egg

Divine Dark Chocolate Flights of Flavours

Perfect for lovers of flavoured chocolate, Divine's Flights of Flavours includes five individually wrapped smooth dark chocolate eggs. With flavours including smooth hazelnut, raspberry and pink Himalayan salt, they offer a taste sensation. Each egg is made from Fairtrade cocoa, grown and picked in Ghana, as well as being vegan and using zero palm oil in the whole process from bean to bar (or egg in this case!).

The White Chocolate Easter Egg

New – Cocoa Loco Giant White Chocolate Lemon Drizzle

We’re obsessed with the 'outside-the-egg' thinking from Cocoa Loco, so when they announced they were combining lemon drizzle cake with their delicious Easter eggs we knew immediately we had to experience this partnership for ourselves. A firm favourite for cake lovers, this new Easter twist is made from the finest single origin Dominican Republic cocoa beans and is organic as well as Fairtrade certified.
