Best milk chocolate egg
Winner: Sainsbury’s Belgian Honeycomb Corn Crunch Giant Easter Egg
Judges loved the unique flavour of this luxurious egg. Aiming to recreate the flavour of a nostalgic cornflake cake, this has a moreish balance of sweet-salty flavour. The chocolate is studded with nuggets of honeycomb and crunchy roasted corn.

Runner up: Morrisons The Best Belgian Milk & Blonde Chocolate with Caramel, Pretzel & Honeycomb Easter Egg
Some judges found this egg slightly too sweet, but if you have a sweet tooth you will enjoy! There is a generous amount of pretzel and honeycomb pieces to add crunch to the sweet milk chocolate.
Best dark chocolate egg
Winner: Morrisons The Best Dark Chocolate Himalayan Sea Salt Easter Egg
A good dark chocolate for an Easter egg, this has a really smooth texture, subtle balanced bitterness and hint of salt.
Runner up: Aldi Specially Selected Dark Ripple Egg with Rich Coffee
A distinctly grown-up egg, this egg has thin chocolate for a delicate result. The addition of coffee adds a level of bitterness that won’t be for everybody but is enjoyable if you don’t like overly sweet chocolate.
Best white chocolate egg
Winner: Waitrose The Cracking Pistachio
Judges loved the unique design of this egg, shaped to look like a giant pistachio nut. The winning element is the ultra creamy blonde chocolate ‘shell’ which was incredibly moreish – but it is worth noting that the green pistachio inner has quite a weak pistachio flavour despite the vibrant colour.
For children or those with a sweet tooth, this has generous quantities of fluffy marshmallows and tangy freeze-dried raspberries.
Runner up: Morrisons The Best Belgian White & Blonde Chocolate Easter Egg
White and blonde chocolate combine in this gently swirled Easter egg – the blonde chocolate adds a touch of rich, caramelised flavour and fine biscuit pieces add little bits of crunch.
Best vegan egg
This chocolate has a good thickness, studded with crunchy biscuit pieces and fluffy marshmallows to add interest. The chocolate is sweet and has a simple ridged design on the outside.
Best children’s egg
Joint winner: by Sainsbury’s Choc-a-lot Bunny Box
This box of goodies contains everything you need to throw an Easter egg hunt – large and small eggs, plus chocolate lollipops too. The box is a fun concept with games on the packaging and a guide to making an Easter bunny costume from the box too.
Joint winner: ASDA Belgian White Chocolate Charli the Chick
Kids will love this sweet white chocolate egg with a cute chick design. The white chocolate is impressive quality – rich, creamy and sweet. A great gift.
Best chocolate bunny
Joint winner: M&S Nibbles the Bunny
This adorable design is sure to be popular with children – almost too cute to eat! The chocolate tastes a little bit darker than some others we tested, for a touch more depth of flavour.
Joint winner: Aldi Specially Selected Milk Hazelnut Bunny
Easter bunnies aren’t just for kids. This hazelnut bunny has a more grown-up flavour, with lots of crunchy nuts throughout and smooth chocolate on a simplistic design.
Best miniature eggs
Winner: M&S Collection Swiss Mini Eggs
These smart foil-wrapped milk chocolate eggs have a soft hazelnut centre, for a distinctly grown up treat.
