Easter 2022: the best food and drink

The Stylist team has selflessly tried Easter chocolate, cheese, cocktails, eggs and more to find the best ones. 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – nope, not Christmas. Easter Sunday arrives on 17 April this year and whether you’re spring tablescaping, booking up afternoon teas, organising restaurant box feasts for family and friends or want to hang out on heated terraces over the long weekend, there are still the big Easter buys to be considered.

Delicious, original and innovative: there are giant ostrich eggs from Hotel Chocolat filled with brownie bites, World Of Zing’s Hot Cross Bun-hattans and Chocolate Orange Negronis, Lola’s x Tony’s Chocolonely artistic cupcakes and an actual Easter egg made of cheese from Butler’s. And Team Stylist has taste-tested a whopping 48 new releases that you can buy for family friends and, of course, yourself.

We’ve also selflessly tried all the big hitters from Cadbury’s, Lindt, Galaxy and shops including Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Aldi and Morrison’s while seeking out the best dairy- and gluten-free options and vegan buys from Pump Street, Happi, Moo Free and Selfridges.

There are brilliant independent finds from Blushing Cook, Cake Or Death, Cutter & Squidge and Farhi; Easter hampers from Cartwright & Butler and cheese hampers from Paxton & Whitfield; biscuits from Biscuiteers and Honeywell Bakes and ideas to decorate your table from Meri Meri. It’s an eggs-ceptional list, quite frankly. 

  • Pump Street Oat Milk Chocolate Chicken

    Easter 2022: Pump Street Oat Milk Chocolate Chicken

    “It might come in an adorable chicken shape, but there’s nothing cutesy about Pump Street’s Easter treat. This is classy cocoa for the serious chocolate connoisseur. Despite being dairy-free and vegan-friendly, the Suffolk-based chocolatier has used Scottish oat milk, which gives a sweet, smooth velvety texture, all offset with a tang of red berries, a sharp nuttiness and a dash of warming cinnamon thanks to the fact they roast their beans in-house. The result? One dangerously moreish hen.”

  • Biscuiteers Easter Egg Hunt

    “Easter doesn’t have to be egg-shaped. Why not break with tradition and go for Biscuiteers’ Easter Egg Hunt selection, a beaut of a tin box crammed with iced biscuits in the shape of bunnies, butterflies and bunting. Each one is a work of art and perfect for anyone planning an Easter tea party. And tbh, it was just nice to have a break from death by chocolate.”

  • Happi Oat Milk Easter Eggs

    Easter 2022: Happi Oat Milk Easter Eggs

    “Vegan white chocolate is usually pretty grim (I’ve tried many options) but Happi’s white chocolate and raspberry egg is an absolute game changer. It’s creamy and smooth, peppered with hits of tongue-tingling freeze-dried fruit – making this egg quite a grown-up offering. For those of us who haven’t had a Terry’s Chocolate Orange since ditching dairy, Happi’s orange offering brings back memories of Christmas snacking… in March. The salted caramel egg is satisfyingly sweet and the regular milk chocolate is great on its own or, as I found out, melted over medjool dates (sorry to dentists everywhere).”

    “You can have your fancy-schmancy over-designed and over-priced easter eggs bought from the posh shops, but let’s all be honest, nothing tastes as good as a Cadbury Easter egg straight from the fridge! Don’t @ me. I am right. There isn’t a dud in the Cadbury collection but particular highlights include the Twirl orange egg (I know, right), a bag of Mini Mix eggs (a bag filled with 23 – I counted – individually wrapped mini eggs) and the new kid on the block, the White Hazelnut Creme. I could go on (Wispa gold hazelnut, Cadbury Fingers anyone?), but I won’t. Instead, I will just eat my third Creme Egg of the morning. Yes, I am that person!”

    “Making all your woodland fairy dreams come true these eggs may just be too pretty to eat? After much deliberation and, ofc, lots of pics, I couldn’t resist and straight to my lips they went. At first, I was slightly sceptical of the edible botanicals because we’ve all thought it – are they really edible? But yes, and they are delish. Each white, milk and dark choc egg is filled with a different brownie and truly tastes as sensational as it looks.”

    “I didn’t grow up with simnel cake, so marzipan was only ever picked off and eaten from the Christmas cake that lasted about seven months in the tin at the top of the cupboard. But I LOVE marzipan and am very much for resurrecting it to be enjoyed for all occasions, so let’s start with Easter. Each Niederegger Desserts Edition Marzipan Egg is super tasty, bitter and individually wrapped to be enjoyed as and when. Or in one sitting if you are me!”

    Easter 2022: Selfridges Vegan Easter Egg

    “10 out of 10 for good looks, The Drippy Egg also has a practical flat base for easy ‘crackabilty’. It boasts a classic easter egg flavour, creamy with honey topnotes. The yellow, blue and white drips are white chocolate, which adds in a dash of extra sweetness. Love the re-useable tin too – it makes for a handy pencil pot to assist in the writing of post-Easter thank you notes.”

    “In Italy, Easter is all about dove-shaped cakes of candied fruit and almonds – very similar to a panettone. We tried serving up Muzzi’s beautifully wrapped version slightly warmed up with chantilly cream. We ate it all. If you want to stick with the Italian theme, Eataly also have an incredible selection of Venchi eggs.”

    “Hotel Chocolat’s ingenious eggs make Easter in my humble opinion – the extra chunky shells are so enjoyable to eat while the inside chocolates of brownies, blondies and mousse au chocolat are little pops of joy. Plus, I like their sense of humour with chocolate sandwiches and egg on toast lollies. Well done them.”

    “I’ve got a theory that Tony’s Chocolonely did some sort of scientific experiment to find the perfect density of chocolate and have then translated it into both their bars and their eggs because I get a psychological boost from them which no other chocolate brand can reach. 100% slave-free and delicious, the foil-wrapped eggs are the best way to do Easter IMHO.”

Available in caramel chocolate, dark chocolate and ruby chocolate, the flat series shows off delicate flavour pairings in palm-sized treats. Fruity ruby is by far the most interesting to taste, with a pleasantly punchy bitterness behind the deceptive sweet pink colour.”

As well as a delicious milk chocolate shell, it’s packed with ganache-filled eggs and fudge cubes, which all lie atop a honeycomb digestive crumb chocolate dreambar.
