One of the things I miss about the UK around this time of year is the huge selection of Easter chocolate (which usually starts appearing in the shops several months before anyone is even thinking about Easter.) Despite Mexico being extremely Catholic and taking Easter very seriously, there seems to be surprisingly little going on in terms of celebrating and gift-giving, so despite my searching, thus far I have not found ANY Easter-specific chocolate…and that makes me very sad. 😦
I know that back home, everyone is currently getting all excited about the return of Cadbury’s Creme Eggs (and I’m hearing something about White Chocolate Creme Eggs becoming a thing?) Honestly, I’ve never understood the hype around that filling of sugary goop. In my opinion (which is correct), there are many, far superior Easter treats available, and we should start giving them the credit they deserve (and just throw Creme Eggs in the bin, TBH.)
10. Creme Eggs: In case it wasn’t clear, Creme Eggs are up there with the worst Easter chocolate there is. But, I know it’s a lot of people’s favourite, so I’m reluctantly including it on my list.
9. Reese’s Eggs: I used to really like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (which is what these are, but these ones are egg-shaped and therefore Easter-y.) The combination of PB and chocolate is a good idea, but these are just too sweet and sickly for me. I guess they add a lot of sugar to the peanut butter and the chocolate isn’t great quality, so, here they are at number 9.
8. Lindt Bunnies: Lindt chocolate is probably the best, and the gold bunny with the ribbon and bell is cute, but Lindt bunnies are so expensive for what they are and overall, just a bit meh.
7. Kinder Surprise: Kinder chocolate is just okay, but nobody really cares about that, right? You never grow out of Kinder Egg toys.
6. Galaxy Golden Eggs: I LOVE caramel, and Galaxy chocolate is quite good, so Galaxy Golden Eggs hold a slightly higher ranking. I also prefer runny caramel to crunchy, so whilst these score points for the combination of flavours, they only make it to number 6.
5. Milkybar Bunnies: I know a lot of people don’t consider white chocolate to be real chocolate, but who can resist a Milkybar? Especially in the shape of a bunny? It may be an unpopular opinion, but Milkybar bunnies are far superior to Lindt bunnies.
4. Lindor Eggs: A much more impressive offering from Lindt, Lindor truffles are kind of to die for. This is one of the rare cases where the chocolate doesn’t taste better in egg form, but since Lindors taste so good anyway, I’m not complaining.
3. Cadbury’s Caramel Eggs: Who would want a Creme Egg when Caramel Eggs exist? I love these Easter eggs because they are big enough that one is enough, the chocolate is thick and you get a big, gooey helping of caramel in the middle.
2. Malteaster Bunnies: Although not as good as regular Maltesers, Malteaster Bunnies present a strong case for the number 1 spot on this list.
1.Mini Eggs: Mini Eggs are the undisputed king of Easter chocolate (and am I the only one who thinks the yellow ones are 100 times better than the other colours?) I don’t know how they make the crispy, sugar shell so inimitably good, but nothing else even compares.
I hope you all have a great Easter weekend and eat your bodyweight in chocolate. Let me know what your favourite Easter treat is in a comment!
