From budget to fun to luxury, Sainsbury’s has a vast array of Easter treats for a year of Easter egg hunts grand enough to make up for the past two years of watered-down celebrations.
All of Sainsbury’s own brand Easter eggs are now plastic-free, removing 4.6 tonnes of plastic from its range.
Products will be in stores on 15 February unless otherwise stated
Blonde Chocolate Drizzle Egg
Sainsbury’s is aiming to bring blonde chocolate into the mainstream with its blonde chocolate egg, hand-drizzled with Belgian white, milk and dark chocolate. For those yet to try it, blonde chocolate is made by heating white choocolate over a low heat until it caramelises to create a buttery, toffee-like sweetness.
By Sainsbury’s On the Go Easter Bunny Snack – Carrots & Chocolate Flavoured Houmous
Is there anything Sainsbury’s won’t purée and blend into a houmous? This chickpea & carrot houmous comes packed with chocolate too. Part of the on the go range, this vegan-friendly snack will also be included in the supermarket’s £3.50 meal deal. It will roll out on 7 March.
Belgian White & Blonde Chocolate Marble Egg
At the premium end of Sainsbury’s egg range is this Belgian white & blonde chocolate creation. The two types of chocolate are marbled together to create a spectacularly swirled hollow egg that, while looking like a kitchen worktop, won’t do the same damage to your teeth.

As well as dissecting its eggs, Sainsbury’s has gone loud and proud with decoration adorning the exterior of its eggs, rather than fillings hidden on the inside.
