Easter with Marks and Spencer 2023

Easter is one of our favourite times of year. It holds great symbolism for many cultures and societies around the world. It is something we enjoy from childhood right into adulthood. Each year Marks and Spencers are kind enough to showcase to us their Easter range and it never fails to disappoint us.

So lets take a look what is on offer this year. There simply is no other place to start than with Percy himself. This year we spotted two different Percy Pig Easter eggs. One is a traditional milk chocolate hollow egg with a bag of Percy Pig sweets (those may or may not still be in the box…..)
The second Percy Pig Easter egg is the Percy Pig Giant Chocolate Face. Which is a giant Percy Pig hollow oink-credible giant chocolate face. Love it!

Equally famous in the Marks and Spencer world is Colin the Caterpillar so obviously he has to appear somewhere at the top of our list, naturally! This again comes in the form of a Colin the Caterpillar Giant Chocolate Face. A cheeky white chocolate hollow Colin…. Scrumptious!

We love character eggs and Marks and Spencer bring these back each year now at very very reasonable prices which is great to see. We have Charlie the Bunny who is from the ‘Made Without Dairy’ range which we absolutly love. He is absolutly delicious and we can’t tell the difference so well done M&S!

We’ve then got Curly the Puppy and Walter the Puppy which are just adorable. But not too adorable you don’t want to scoff them! 😉 Curly is made with marbled white and milk chocolate giving him a great realistic look and Walter is made using milk chocolate. So whichever one takes your fancy.

If you’re (or someone you love) is a fan of dinosaurs then look no further than the Chocosaurus Rex! A hollow milk chocolate egg with milk chocolate eyes. Scary but delicious!

It’s not all about eggs either! (well it is but slightly smaller ones). We spotted a box of Swiss Mini Eggs. Mini blond and milk chocolate truffle eggs. We abosolutly love Marks and Spencers truffles so its great to see these added to the Easter range too. These would be a great addition to an Easter Egg Hunt (they should do those for adults btw) The box is filled with hazelnut cream, hazelnut crunch and blond truffles. We also have the Dippy Egg Mini Whips which are milk chocolate filled with mallow and an orange flavoured sauce. Nom Nom!
