Marks and Spencer have come up trumps with their Easter range this year. From luxury chocolate eggs for adults to fun character eggs for children of all ages to tempting tea time treats for Grandma and Granddad – they’ve got something for the whole family.
As you can see, M&S kindly gave me a few tasty goodies to bring out my inner child, including a chocolate Colin the Caterpillar, jelly sweets and a Easter egg hunt bag. I’m saving them for Easter weekend so I can’t tell you what they taste like (as they’re M&S, I’m sure they’re amazing!) but I can tell you that they would make ideal treats for big and small kids alike.
Colin the Caterpillar is a hollow milk and white chocolate figure which looks a bit different from your standard egg shaped offerings. It reminded me of caterpillar birthday cakes that were popular when I was little so it was great to bring those memories back! The milk and white chocolate means that you get the best of both worlds and the little candy coated chocolates on Colin’s back adds some fun and colour – how cute!
The Easter egg hunt bag is filled with several different-sized hollow milk chocolate eggs, which would be brilliant for hiding around the house ready for the children to find on Easter Sunday. And if you don’t fancy an Easter egg hunt they’re brilliant for sharing and using in Easter-themed goodie bags if you have a lot of people to buy for.
The jelly carrots are orange flavoured jellies in a carrot shaped pack, which would make a super cute gift alongside a soft bunny toy for younger children. At only £1.50, they’re great if you’re on a budget too. Thank you M&S for making my Easter egg-stra special!
