Glorious, glorious. A real pistachio taste. The chocolate is very delicate and complements the filling. For all pistachio lovers.

Egg-stra special chocolate eggs sachet mixed flavor
255g, £5,saintsburys.co.uk
Wow, they are solid. Mmm…salted caramel. It’s just such good quality chocolate. Very pleasant. It’s an indulgence. There’s variety, it’s diversified, I really like that.

irresistible coop
Fairtrade Hand Finished Hot Cross Egg
175g, £5, coop.co.uk
It has a good sweetness. I like dried fruits. There is also a spicy orange flavor. I would buy it – for me. Anyone who loves hot rolls and chocolate would love this.

Heston of Waitrose
The golden apple
260g, £15, waitrose.com
The small chocolates are praline and are well toasted. The shell of the apple is a beautiful combination: very bitter fruity dark chocolate and caramelized white chocolate. Confusing but enjoyable.
★★★★

Marks & Spencer
The sinking egg
310g, £10, ocado.com
I think it’s quite cute, very colorful. It has the dynamism of Easter. It’s sour but in a nice way, sweet but with a nice acidity. I could eat a whole one.
★★★★

Morrison the best
Chocolate collection raspberry and egg in Belgian white chocolate
165g, £5, morrisons.com
This tangy raspberry flavor is instant. It’s really smooth. A little powdery on the finish but very pleasant, fruity flavor.

Moser–Roth
Deluxe stuffed eggs with crispy hazelnuts
150g, £1.99, aldi.co.uk
I like the texture of the interior; it has a good nutty taste. The chocolate is average but I could see myself taking a handful. There is something reassuring about them.
★★★★

Sainsbury’s
Belgian milk chocolate tiramisu egg
260g, £8,saintsburys.co.uk
Good brittle chocolate. The coffee flavor is not bitter – it is subtle, not offensive. There is harmony there. It tastes like tiramisu.
★★★★

Aldi
Choceur choco change salted butter caramel milk chocolate
170g, £4.99, aldi.co.uk
It has an unhealthy smell, a little sweet and vanilla. I love the crunch of the caramel pieces. It’s very sweet. Not unpleasant, just different?
★★★

Doisy & Dam
Good dark chocolate eggs
75g, £2, ocado.com
They hold what they promise to be, but I think they’re a little bitter for my taste… Too close to the bitter end of bittersweet – but some people like that.
★★★

Marks & Spencer
Harri the hedgehog
135g, £5, ocado.com
I really want to like it… It’s cute and the kids would like it but it’s not the most special chocolate. It’s waxy so when you get the flavor it lingers because it coats your mouth. Not revolutionary, but harmless.

Allpress
Espresso eggs
180g, £15, uk.shop.allpressespresso.com
We smell the coffee and the chocolate is bitter. Adult eggs. Loud in taste and texture. They don’t float my boat, but if you like coffee chocolate, you’ll like these.
★★★

Sainsbury’s
White chocolate hollow egg with pink lips The Yolkers
145g, £3.50,saintsburys.co.uk
As sweet as you’d expect. I would give it to my nephews; they would find it girly but I try to break stereotypes with easter eggs.
★★★

Farhi
Luxury box of mini milk chocolate praline eggs
370g, £17.50, farhi.co.uk
The praline flavor is nice and toasty but I think the chocolate flavor lets it down – it’s quite powdery. Maybe the pralines are a little sweet. They look great for an Easter table or a hunt.
★★

Daylesford
hand painted bee easter egg
200g, £18, daylesford.com
It’s cute for kids but very bitter – I think that’s why this one’s eyes are pointing in different directions: he doesn’t know his audience. It’s a chocolate egg going through a midlife crisis.
