Face Off: Easter Bunnies Go Head to Head

Lindt and Aldi chocolate bunnies came to visit this Easter, so we put them head to head. We've reviewed the Aldi Choceur bunny before, and awarded it full marks (for the price), but how does it compare to a Lindt bunny that costs 3 or 4 times as much?

New: Hotel Chocolat 'Milk-Free Milk Chocolate'

Vegan easter egg made with almond milk. This new No Dairy chocolate range has launched this week just in time for Easter. It's not labelled 'dairy-free', but it is labelled vegan. Hotel Chocolat have eschewed rice powder and soya to replace the milk, in favour of almond powder, something we haven't seen before.

Vegan Easter: Lidl mini chocolate eggs

Lidl - Favorina Mini Chocolate Eggs - Vegan

Favorina brand mini eggs with marzipan, amaretto and cassis centres. Dark chocolate eggs for liqueur and marzipan lovers. These bags of chocolate eggs appear every Easter at the budget German supermarket:

Vegan Easter: Choices White Choc Easter Bunny

Celtic Chocolate - Choices - Dairy-Free White Choc Easter Bunny

Single dairy-free easter bunny from the Irish firm Celtic Chocolates. Vegan white chocolate is getting less rare as products like these become a fixture on supermarket shelves. The dairy-free Choices range is one of the better tasting faux-milk and white chocolates.

Vegan Easter: Moo Free's Caramelised Hazelnut Nib Egg

Moo Free - Caramelised Hazelnut Nib - Dairy-Free Chocolate Easter Egg

Dairy-free chocolate Easter egg with pieces of caramelised hazelnut embedded in the faux milk chocolate. This is new for 2014 as an Easter egg, although you can buy chocolate bars of this product all year round. We loved a caramel Easter egg last year, so does this one measure up?

Vegan Easter: What Egg did you get?

We got a Choices Caramel! It's not just kids that get chocolate eggs right? We were lucky enough to be given an egg we hadn't already reviewed, and what an egg it is. We hadn't noticed on our shop trawl that this egg is actually caramel-flavoured chocolate:

Vegan Easter: Raw Choc Co's Vanoffe Dark Bar

The Raw Chocolate Co Vanoffe Dark

A raw chocolate treat for your dairy-free Easter. We've reviewed the 'Vanoffe' bar before as part of our wider review of the goodies available from The Raw Chocolate Co, but the Dark version is now available in a new 44g bar. That's 15 chunks of caramel / vanilla / toffee chocolate goodness for your Easter pleasure:

Vegan Easter: Sjaak's Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs

Sjaak's Filled Chocolate Vegan Easter Eggs

Your Easter Egg hunt is over! Five organic vegan ‘milk’ chocolate eggs filled with vanilla truffle, raspberry truffle, almond butter, creamy caramel and peanut butter. These foil-wrapped eggs are just a little bit bigger than those famous creme eggs that vegans can't eat, and come in a little presentation box. Creamy caramel... and peanut butter... tell me more:

Vegan Easter: Sjaak's Nuts & Chews Chocolates

Sjaak's Chocolate Nuts & Chews Assortment

Easter means chocolate right? But not always eggs. Departing with tradition (and orthodoxy), this box of chocolates would make a great gift for a vegan Easter. We often find vegan Easter eggs come without any goodies within... which is boring... so why not skip that, and just buy some great chocolates? This Sjaaaks assortment is a delicious selection of caramels and nutty chews with a rice-milk covering:

Vegan Easter: Choices White Choc Easter Egg

Vegan White Chocolate: Choices White Choc Easter Egg

A dairy-free white chocolate Easter egg with buttons. Celtic and their sister brand Choices have a monopoly on the dairy-free Easter section in Holland and Barrett stores, but it's a fine selection they offer so we're not complaining. Vegans can waltz in to a H&B and choose milk, dark or white chocolate eggs this year - is this a first? We naturally opted for the most exotic choice... the white chocolate egg:

Vegan Easter: Moo Free Organic Easter Egg

Moo Free Organic Easter Egg - Vegan, Organic, Dairy Free Chocolate

Could this now be the archetypal vegan easter egg? The standard Moo Free faux-milk easter egg has quickly become a benchmark...widely available, reasonably priced and very good. Moo Free's version of rice milk chocolate is a favourite among vegans who will often name it as their first choice chocolate.

Review: Zero Zebra Rice Milk Chocolate Bars

Zero Zebra Rice Milk Chocolate Bars

An easter chocolate idea that isn't an egg. Faux-milk chocolate bars from Zero Zebra, a brand of Marthomi Allergy Free Foods from Germany. Each batch of these bars is tested for allergens to ensure they are completely dairy, gluten and nut free. The bars come in regular, rice crisp and strawberry flavour. We're reviewing the regular and strawberry flavours:

Fairtrade Vegan: Divine Mini Easter Eggs

Divine 70% Dark Chocolate Eggs

Dark chocolate mini eggs from fairtrade producer Divine. A nice easter gift for dark chocolate lovers. These dairy-free mini eggs are not over-packaged like many easter eggs, so they score extra ethical points on that front too. Each little egg is foil wrapped, which makes them ideal for easter egg hunts.

Budget Vegan: Aldi Chocolate Easter Bunny

Aldi Choceur Dark Chocolate Easter Bunny

A large chocolate bunny for under a quid. The Choceur range at Aldi is always good value but this is exceptional at 99p for a full-sized Easter bunny. Clearly taking inspiration from Lindt bunnies, but at a fraction of the price. The dark and milk chocolate bunnies are distinguished by the colour of their bows and you'll have to dig deep into the display box to find the dairy-free one:

Early Easter: Moo Free Easter Bunny

Vegan Chocolate Easter Bunny

A vegan Easter Bunny in the shape of a Mini Moos 'Bunny Bar'. The dairy-free chocolate specialists at Moo Free have launched a bunny version of their Mini Moos chocolate bars. This is a faux-milk chocolate bar, shaped like a portly easter bunny. They're sold singly and available in Waitrose and elsewhere.
