Best vegan Easter eggs we tasted tested in 2023

We’ve done the hard work taste testing to help you find the best vegan Easter chocolates, whether you prefer:

How we tested

When it comes to spending your hard-earned money on an Easter egg, you want to make sure you choose the most delicious one. But with so many vegan Easter eggs now available, it can be hard to know which to choose!

So, to find out which vegan Easter eggs are worth the money, the VF&L team has put them to the test.

Firstly, we looked at which eggs deliver on their promise of giving us a rich chocolate flavour and a melt-in-the-mouth texture. Bonus points were given to those who included some extra goodies along with the egg!

Then we looked at how they are packaged. As consumers, we’re always looking for ways to cut out plastic waste, so the sustainability of the packaging has been considered to help you make an informed choice this Easter.

Finally, no one should have to miss out at Easter. So we’ve also noted which Easter eggs are gluten-free to accommodate those with dietary allergies too.


Vegan milk chocolate Easter eggs

If you like your vegan chocolate sweet and creamy then look out for these melt-in-the-mouth vegan milk chocolate eggs this Easter.

1. H!P Salty Pretzel Oat M!lk Chocolate Easter Egg

H!P Salty Pretzel Oat M!lk Chocolate Easter Egg

I adore the combination of salt and chocolate, so just the thought of H!P’s Salty Pretzel egg is enough to make my mouth water. Luckily, the taste is just as good in reality!

H!P’s oat milk-based milk chocolate contains 41% cocoa so is richly flavoured and superbly smooth. The egg itself is generously studded throughout with pieces of pretzel that give it a wonderful crunchy texture. The addition of sea salt accentuates the flavours of the chocolate, enhancing the cocoa flavour beautifully.

It’s simple but so flavoursome and just the right amount of sweet and salty with plenty of texture to keep it interesting.

Weighing in at 150g and priced at £10, it would be nice if it came with a small bar of chocolate to enjoy too. However, the ingredients are all ethically and sustainability sourced and it’s entirely plastic-free so you can enjoy this egg guilt-free this Easter.

  • Price: £10
  • Packaging: 100% plastic free
  • Gluten-free: No
  • Where to buy: Available in Fencwick, Selfridges and hipchocolate.com

2. Butterm!lk Honeycomb Blast Choccy Egg & Bar

Butterm!lk Honeycomb Blast Choccy Vegan Easter Egg & Bar

I adore honeycomb, so couldn’t wait to try Butterm!lk’s vegan milk chocolate egg with crunchy honeycomb flakes. It even comes with a generously-sized Honeycomb Blast bar that is super chunky – far bigger than a certain non-vegan chocolate bar!

The creamy chocolate egg is generously studded with pieces of honeycomb throughout, and the chocolate itself is very sweet. I loved the hint of sea salt which added extra pops of sweetness throughout and made it even more moreish.

Butterm!lk has reduced the packaging by 25% for 2023, and I loved that this egg comes without the plastic case you often find. However, this did mean my egg sadly didn’t survive the post as the chocolate is on the thin side. The delicious taste was affected, but it’s something to consider if you’re planning on gifting it to a lucky recipient.

Tested by Rachel

  • Price: £6.60
  • Packaging: 100% recyclable (the Honeycomb Blast bar is packaged in plastic, but the rest of the egg is plastic-free)
  • Gluten-free: Yes
  • Where to buy: Available in Tesco & Sainsbury’s now 

3. Mummy Meegz Chuckie Egg

Mummy Meagz Chuckie Egg gift set

If you’re craving a Cadbury’s Creme Egg but don’t want to eat dairy look no further than Mummy Meegz’s Chuckie Eggs.

The Chuckie Eggs are made with ethically-sourced creamy oat milk chocolate and are filled with a gooey fondant. These are a real treat and are identical to the dairy alternative.

They are available in packs of 5, although you will need someone to share these eggs with as they are very sweet. One Chuckie Egg will give you your chocolate fix for the day.

Chuckie Eggs are wrapped in 100% recyclable foil and come in a recyclable cardboard box.

4. Happi Oat Milk Easter Egg

Happi Oat Milk Easter egg and box

Chocolate orange is always a winner in my eyes, so I was excited to get stuck into this oat milk chocolate Easter egg by plant-based chocolatiers, Happi.

I was immediately drawn to this egg thanks to the bold colours and unique plastic-free box. But we know the most important part of an Easter egg is of course the chocolate.

I was slightly underwhelmed by the size of the egg compared to the box, especially given that this isn’t the cheapest egg. The chocolate itself had a rich cocoa taste that was more like dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate.

The orange flavour was tasty, but I would have liked it to be stronger.

Tested by Molly

  • Price: £12.99
  • Packaging: 100% recyclable and plastic-free (Egg is wrapped in a biodegradable film)
  • Gluten-free: Yes
  • Where to buy: Amazon, and Waitrose

5. NOMO Cookie Dough Easter Egg

NOMO Cookie Dough Easter Egg with a Cookie Dough Bunny

Cookie dough is one of my favourite flavours and the adorable NOMO bunny included in this egg really delivers on this. It was hard to believe that it was gluten-free, it gave such a rich, biscuity flavour!

I used to love a Malteser bunny or reindeer, and this bunny is a great vegan dupe for that. Its cute rabbit shape makes it perfect for children, while the cookie dough filling is decadent enough to be enjoyable for grownups too.

The Easter egg itself was a little underwhelming in comparison to the bunny, as while the rice pieces were a satisfyingly crunchy addition to the egg, they just didn’t live up to the ‘cookie dough’ promise on the pack.

That said, NOMO’s milk chocolate is beautifully creamy and I consider it to be one of the best vegan milk chocolate alternatives – especially amongst those that can be easily picked up in my local supermarket!

Overall, this Easter egg is beautifully flavoured with a sensational variety of textures. It’s sure to make a wonderful Easter gift for anybody.

Tested by Helen

  • Price: £6
  • Packaging: Fully recyclable plastic, however the bunny’s packaging must be recycled with bags at large supermarkets. 
  • Gluten-free: yes (also safe for nut allergies)
  • Where to buy: Online at nomochoc.com and through most major supermarkets.

Vegan white chocolate Easter eggs

Got an insatiable sweet tooth? You’ll love these super sweet vegan white chocolate Easter eggs!

6. Kakoa Iconic Vegan White Chocolate Easter Egg

Kakoa Vegan Iconic White Chocolate Easter Eg

The moment you see the packaging for Kokoa’s vegan white chocolate Easter egg it becomes obvious why they’ve dubbed it the ‘iconic’ Easter egg.

Presented in a striking black pyramid-shaped box that’s entirely biodegradable, this impressive geometric egg stands at 15cm tall and a chunky 1cm thick so it really has the wow factor! You need both hands to break off a piece which feels so deliciously decadent.

Many have tried to capture the creamy texture and flavour of white chocolate when making a vegan version, but few have succeeded. They’re often overly sweet with an almost waxy texture. Kakoa’s egg, however, has the perfect amount of sweetness and isn’t cloying on the tongue.

The vegan white chocolate is made using rice and oat milk so it melts with ease, filling your mouth with a buttery sweetness and creamy vanilla flavour.

But the fun doesn’t stop there because nestled inside the two generously sized halves are 10 vegan chocolates including cookies & cream truffle eggs, champagne and white chocolate truffles, and pretzel chocolates. The chocolates are a joy to devour and each is more delicious than the last – I particularly enjoyed the mix of salty pretzels with milk and white chocolate.

Kakoa’s egg is sophisticated but fun and unlike anything else available on the vegan market. If you love white chocolate, it’s a must-buy this Easter.

  • Price: £29.99
  • Packaging: 100% plastic-free and biodegradable 
  • Gluten-free: No

7. Goupie 3 x White Chocolate Bunnies In A Box


These three individually-wrapped vegan white chocolate bunnies are the perfect Easter treat for kids and adults alike.

The wrapping film is fully compostable, so it’s winning on the eco stakes, and the bunnies themselves are very cute, and a good size for a chocolate treat.

Vegan white chocolate can sometimes be a bit hit and miss, but Goupie has really got it right here.

The chocolate is beautifully sweet, as all white chocolate should be, and perfectly smooth and creamy. It’s got a lovely vanilla aftertaste too.

As well as being a great Easter novelty at a good price, I think it’s really hard to tell it’s vegan. I could eat a lot of these!

  • Price: £2.70
  • Packaging: 100% recyclable/compostable

Vegan dark chocolate Easter eggs

Deliciously dark and decadent, these vegan dark chocolate Easter eggs are a treat for those who love cocoa.

8. Divine 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Egg with Mini Dark Chocolate Eggs


If you’d like your Easter egg to come with a clear conscience, Divine is always a good choice as the brand is famously co-owned by the cocao farmers it works with. So the farmers get a share of the profits they help to create, and you get a great tasting egg.

Plus it doesn’t contain any palm oil or soya.

Although this egg is 70% cocoa, it has a really smooth, almost creamy aftertaste, and definitely couldn’t be classed as a bitter dark chocolate. In short, it’s a very easier eater.

The chocolate has a fantastic snap, a gorgeous gloss to the shell, and notes of vanilla in the tasting.

At 260g, it’s a decent sized egg for the price, particularly as it comes with 100g of mini dark chocolate eggs too.

These are all individually wrapped in foil and have a slightly different flavour to the chocolate in the egg. The chocolate is slightly darker in colour, and the flavour is a little more fruity, with hints of dark cherry, which gives a really nice contrast to the egg itself.

I’d be surprised to hear of any dark chocolate fan being disappointed to receive this egg.

Tested by Sally

  • Price: £12.99
  • Packaging: 100% recyclable 
  • Gluten-free: No (may contain cereals containing gluten)
  • Where to buy: Amazon

9. Montezuma*s Frizzle Dark Chocolate Hen with Cocoa Nibs


When it comes to dark chocolate, you know you’re in safe hands with Montezuma*s – and this is certainly the case with this Easter hen.

A little different to your traditional Easter egg shape, it’s a decent size at around 17cm high, 12cm wide and 11cm deep.

It’s 70% dark milk chocolate, so has all the intensity and rich flavouring that you expect from 70% chocolate, but isn’t quite as bitter, which is where the ‘dark milk’ comes in.

The chocolate has a deeply satisfying snap when you break a piece off, and the taste is on the rich, earthy side of the flavour spectrum, with woody tobacco notes. It’s just bitter enough to know that it’s a good quality dark chocolate, but doesn’t dry out your mouth too much.

But what I enjoyed the most about this (apart from the cute shape), was the addition of the cocoa nibs.

To begin with I wondered if they were hiding inside the hen, but they’re actually incorporated into the chocolate shell to give a really interesting texture.

The chocolate itself is very smooth, but once that has dissolved in your mouth you’re left with very tiny flakes of cocoa nib. Not too much, not too little, just enough to set this Easter treat apart from the rest.

Even though this ‘egg’ box has a transparent window, all packaging is 100% recyclable, so it ticks the eco-friendly box too.

  • Price: £12.50
  • Packaging: 100% recyclable 
  • Gluten-free: Yes
  • Where to buy: Online at Montezuma

10. Love Cocoa Maldon Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Easter Egg

Love Cocoa Maldon Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Easter Egg

Ethical chocolate brand Love Cocoa, which was created by the great-great-great grandson of the original Mr Cadbury, has a real treat for dark chocolate lovers this Easter.

This Easter, the brand has transformed its popular Maldon salt chocolate bar into a delectable handmade dark chocolate Easter egg.

Packaged in a sleek and stylish cardboard tube, the fragrant cocoa smell bursts out as soon as you open the lid.

The chocolate itself is perfectly tempered with a great snap, and the flavour is sublime. Made with 70% cacao Peruvian dark chocolate, it’s incredibly rich and fruity with a bitterness that allows the cocoa flavour to be the star of the show.

Love Cocoa has sprinkled flakes of Maldon sea salt throughout which add a delightful crunchy element and really make the chocolate flavour pop. A true celebration of cocoa, this is dark chocolate at its very best.

Priced at £15 for 150, it is at the pricier end of the scale, but the ingredients are all sustainably sourced and slave free.

Plus, they plant a tree for every egg sold this Easter so you can enjoy your purchase safe in the knowledge that you’ve made a truly ethical choice.

  • Price: £15
  • Packaging: 100% plastic free
  • Gluten-free: Yes

Luxury vegan Easter eggs

If you’re looking to indulge this Easter, these luxurious vegan Easter eggs are a special treat.

11. Hotel Chocolat Extra Thick Unbelievably Vegan Easter Egg

Hotel Chocolat Extra Thick Unbelievably Vegan Easter Egg

Nothing says luxury quite like an extra thick Easter egg stuffed full of tempting truffles and chocolates! Dubbed the Extra Thick Unbelievably Vegan egg, Hotel Chocolat’s luxury Easter egg definitely delivers what it promises.

With a lavishly thick chocolate shell that takes sheer brute force to crack and measures in at a girthy 1cm, this is one satisfying egg.

The chocolate itself is made using the brand’s stunning Nutmilk chocolate which uses finely milled hazelnuts instead of milk to give it a silky smooth texture.

It also gives it a subtle hint of hazelnut flavour that makes the vegan chocolate taste really decadent, a little like a praline.

For me, this chocolate is a great option for both milk and dark chocolate lovers because it contains 45% cocoa so is both creamy yet ultra-rich and chocolatey too.

As if the super thick egg wasn’t enough, it’s filled with a generous selection of sumptuous truffles and chocolates too.

The Peanut Butter Jelly Nutmilk and Salted Caramel & Nutmilk truffles were particularly delicious, but in total, you have six delicious flavours to relish.

Plus, the egg is packaged in a chic tin which you can reuse once you’ve devoured the chocolates to store biscuits or small items.

Priced at £30, this egg is on the luxury end of the scale but you certainly get your money’s worth as you’ll be munching on this one for weeks!

Tested by Rachel

  • Price: £30
  • Packaging: Comes with a plastic egg stand
  • Gluten-free: Yes but it may contain trace amounts as it is not manufactured in a dedicated gluten facility 
  • Where to buy: Available to buy online at hotelchocolat.com

12. MELT Vegan Almond Milk Egg

MELT Vegan Almond Milk Egg

Master chocolatiers MELT, who handmake their products in London’s Notting Hill, have three luxury vegan Easter eggs to choose from this year, including the new almond milk egg.

For me, you know an Easter egg is going to be deliciously decadent when you need to give it a good whack to break into it! In fact, the shell of this superb vegan Easter egg is so thick I had to use a knife to break it apart along the seam as sheer brute force was not enough!

But don’t think that means this chocolate is rock solid – quite the opposite in fact! It starts to melt in your mouth almost immediately and is one of the smoothest vegan chocolates I’ve tried. The almond milk gives it a real milkiness that some vegan chocolates lack, but it’s still rich and chocolatey in flavour.

This egg feels like a real treat too as it arrives in a beautiful box tied up with a ribbon, and there’s no plastic in sight! Instead, MELT has created a clever cardboard holder inside which keeps the egg safe from damage without using lots of excess packaging.

13. Booja Booja Easter Egg with Salted Caramel Truffles

Booja Booja easter egg with truffles

If you’re looking for an extra special easter gift this year, look no further than Booja Booja’s luxury Easter egg.

This egg is genuinely stunning, the unique out casing is hand-painted in India, and each flavour has its own distinct floral design. Inside, the egg is lined with fabric and filled with Booja Booja’s legendary organic vegan truffles.

There are 5 decadent truffle flavours available: Hazelnut Crunch, Fine De Champagne, Chocolate Orange, Honeycomb Caramel, and Chocolate Salted Caramel (this is the flavour that we tried).

These truffles really are pure indulgence, the bitter cocoa powder coats a gooey ganache centre that is studded with chewy pieces of caramel which melt in your mouth. All of these rich flavours may sound like a sugar overload, but the bitter cocoa and salt in the caramel balances the flavours perfectly.

It’s worth noting that while these Easter eggs are a thing of beauty, they do cost a pretty penny. The large easter egg with 12 truffles costs £24.99, while the smaller egg which comes with 3 truffles is priced at £11.99.

Tested by Molly

  • Price: £11.99 – £24.99
  • Packaging: Hand-painted wooden egg casing, truffles come in a plastic packaging
  • Gluten-free: Yes

Vegan Easter eggs for kids

14. Moo Free Easter collection with Mikey Bunny and friends

MooFree vegan easter eggs

Moo Free is the perfect vegan chocolate brand for kids. Its adorable characters and bite-size vegan bars make it easy for parents to give their children a chocolate treat without dairy.

This Easter, the brand’s mascots Mikey Bunny and Hammy Hamster are back and available in 2 delicious flavours: orange fizz and white chocolate lemon fizz.

In the past, vegan white chocolate has always slightly missed the mark in terms of flavour and can often be too sweet. However, I was pleasantly surprised with MooFree’s lemon white chocolate – the subtle taste of lemon balances the sweetness perfectly without being too tart for younger mouths.

Hammy Hamster is made using dairy-free milk chocolate and has a subtle taste of orange which was delicious. I did find this one to be slightly too sweet, but I can guarantee children with a sweet tooth will demolish this cute chocolate hamster in moments. Both Hammy and Mikey are studded with popping candy which adds another layer of fun to these chocolate treats.

Additionally, the brand has released its Moofreesa chocolate ball studded with biscuit chunks and comes with a bag of Moofreesa chocolate rocks (crunchy biscuit balls coated in vegan milk chocolate) which I found to be incredibly moreish – I have eaten the entire bag in one sitting! They reminded me of Maltesers so were a great hit in our house.

15. PLAYin Choc Individual Rabbit ToyChoc Box


Although these aren’t technically Easter eggs, the new Rabbit collection from PLAYin Choc is a special release for Easter, and they do make a very appealing treat for both children and young-at-heart adults.

I think they’d work particularly well as an alternative Easter egg hunt, as the little boxes are the perfect size for hiding in small places.

You might not get the most chocolate with this option, but then it is only priced at £2.25 for two 10g bars of chocolate and a little cardboard figure. And the chocolate itself is lovely.

The shape always reminds me of a domino piece, which adds to the fun.

The chocolate contains just four ingredients – cacao solids, coconut sugar, creamed coconut and vanilla pods – but those ingredients combine to create a really interesting flavour combo.

It’s an incredibly smooth milk chocolate that melts beautifully in your mouth. The first hit you get is definitely coconut, which gives way to leave a lingering taste of cacao. This is not the usual chocolate that’s reserved for kids. It’s really, really good.

The cardboard 3D puzzle that comes with the box is simple to put together and a nice little keepsake. There are 6 different rabbit designs to collect (from English Spot to Lion Head), and each puzzle comes with a fact sheet to tell you about that type of bunny, which adds a gently educational element.

As all the contents are made from either recycled board or home compostable film, this is certainly one treat you can give to the kids with a clear conscience.

16. Romney Marshmallow


Packaged in a reusable nest, this is probably our smallest vegan Easter egg, but in my opinion it’s one of our cutest.

The egg itself forms the body of Romney sheep, with four mini marshmallows making up the legs, and half marshmallows dotted all over the body for the fur. The face is made from a chocolate panel fixed onto the pointed end of the egg. This had sadly snapped in half during transit for me, but it was easily fixed with a little extra melted chocolate.

The chocolate egg is made from dark chocolate, which is really rich in cocoa and leaves the comforting taste of sweet cocoa powder in your mouth. It’s the kind of flavour you get with a mug of really good dark hot chocolate.

Although the dark chocolate on its own might usually be a little too intense for kids, when it’s teamed with the marshmallows the sweet, sugary marshmallow takes the edge off the cocoa in the most perfect balance. They’re really good marshmallows too.

Romney isn’t particularly big, so this is on the more expensive side for an Easter treat, but for fans of both dark chocolate and marshmallows it’s a must.
