It’s nearly eat-your-weight-in-chocolate day (or as the more restrained among us call it – Easter)! Now we don’t know about you, but if there’s one thing that could make this already joyous day even better it would be if all said chocolate were PINK. Luckily, these days, this is a highly achievable dream with a plethora of pink eggs on the market, and because we’d do anything for you guys we rounded them up and tried them all (we know, we’re just so selfless)…
Bettys Pink Shimmer Easter Egg
First up from Bettys (Yorkshire Tea Rooms and Confectioners) the Pink Shimmer Easter Egg. We almost didn’t want to break this one because it was just so pretty (look at that hand-piping!). Thankfully we did because it tasted even better than it looked! Unlike most ‘pink’ chocolate, which is usually actually white, this egg is all milk on the inside – and the finest Swiss Grand Cru milk chocolate at that. So if you’re a milk kinda gal but still want your pink fix we can’t recommend this enough!

Waitrose Hand Decorated White & Dark Chocolate Egg with Raspberry Pieces
Our next egg is technically only half pink, but we’ll let it off because it was so blimmin’ tasty. Half creamy white, half deliciously dark and adorned all over with raspberry pieces, this egg is perf for the indecisive (greedy) chocolate lover. You want dark one day? White the next? Feeling fruity? This is THE egg for that. Plus, it really did taste like raspberries which is massive tick in our book.

Prestat Pink Popping Prosecco Easter Egg
Oh man, if there were prizes for beautiful packaging (actually there probably are and we would like to nominate!) then this egg would CLEAN UP. Thankfully that was not all it had going for it, and the egg itself was equally beaut: deliciously smooth milk chocolate, lined with fizzing pink chocolate, and filled with mini popping pink prosecco truffles (try saying that with a mouth full of said truffles if you want a laugh).

Tesco Chokablok Fairground Easter Egg
This one looked deceptively like normal white chocolate, but was in fact bubblegum flavour chocolate. Yepp, you heard, BUBBLEGUM. Sounds like it’d be weird, and it sort of was, but we also kinda loved it. It’s called the ‘Fairground’ egg which didn’t make sense initially, but now it does – we ate the whole thing in one go, felt ready to puke, then wanted to do it all over again. Which pretty much sums up all our past experiences with fairground rides.

Hotel Chocolat Champagne Easter Egg – Extra Thick
They were not lying, this is one thick egg. It’s like that bit at the centre of a regular egg (which everyone knows is the best bit), but about ten times thicker and the whole shell is that thick. THICK basically, in case you weren’t getting that. Plus, it’s filled with HC’s Champagne and pink Champagne truffles if you have enough room left after conquering the beast that is the shell.

M&S Globetrotting Percy Easter Egg
Now this one was hard to break into just because it looked so cute! Look at little Percy staring up at you all trusting (we were riding an all-time sugar high at this point which may have addled our senses somewhat). If you can bear to break in it, then you’ll enjoy a subtly fruity white chocolate, very much like the Percy Pig sweets themselves but it chocolate form. It does of course also come with a bag of Globetrotting Percy Pig sweets so you have the best of both worlds!
Head over to M&S to buy
Now HOLD ON before you go, we’re also offering you the chance to WIN one of these delectable pink eggs – the Prestat Pink Popping Prosecco Easter Egg no less! This really does make the most gorgeous gift (if you’re feeling generous), but we’d highly recommend eating it all yourself.
