    I had one of the bunny ones you can get in Sainsburys. It was soooo yummy
    Last year I had the sainsburys freefrom egg and it was nice but not as milky tasting as the bunny. I saw the dark lindt bunny today and it smelt really nice.. ahehh

    Thanks! Added, and i'll be looking out. I never get to go to big supermarkets, not having a car but I'm trying to persuade someone to take me!

    I saw the Simpsons one in my local Sainsbury as well as the Tigger one...obviously same product though.

    I want them to make "fancy" Easter eggs for vegans...preferably white chocolate!! I shouldn't complain because at least I got two milk chocolate ones buuuuuut...hinting for the future....

    I ordered some egg moulds yesterday.
    Sorry, I didn't realise they were doing the Simpsons one this year (haven't seen it anywhere buit I will be on the lookout!) but I think I got a couple last year from TKMAXX.

    Just been to Marks and Spencer and they have a Vegan Egg - its Dark Chocolate with Cranberrys and Pecans shoved in the middle - the packaging says that it is not suitable for milk allergy suffers due to the method of production (I think this means milk is used in the same factory), but the ingredients listed seem Vegan.

    Also Thorntons have dark choc eggs that dont have milk in them - although as with most products has the warning - may contain traces blah blah blah

    I think that After Eight eggs are Vegan as well (last time I looked they listed the egg ingredients separate from the thins and there was no milk in the egg - just the milk traces warning), just as long as you dont eat the After Eights that come with it.
    I think last year they also did an egg with a mug (with the "May contain" warning though) and a bunny that was vegan (and delicious) but I haven't seen them this year.

    Aldi are doing Dark chocolate covered marzipan eggs in a grab bag - or one large 100 gram one.

    Viva have an easter section on their website with a few things on (almond butter filled bunny etc), I think that they are mostly from Sjaaks http://www.vivashop.org.uk/catalog/viva/easter

    Thanks for this, I've added the viva and thorntons stuff to my blog, along with a post on chocolate rabbits and some things I found shopping over the weekend! They sell those marzipan eggs in Lidl too, just bought some. Being mother's day today and my dad's bday soon, this weekend I was in Asda, Waitrose, Morrisons, Sainsburys and Lidl. There were no vegan eggs at all in Morrisons or Sainsburys! Asda had the Kinnerton one. Waitrose was the best in terms of selection, with the lindt dark choc bunnies, 2 dark choc eggs that I hadn't heard of/ seen before that seemed vegan, a celtic (dark) egg and a mini divine egg. Lidl had the marzipan ones as I said.

    One thing I'd say re the After Eight is that if part of the product contains milk then even if you can eat some of it you've still purchased a milk product... so I personally wouldn't.

    I have to say I agree about the After Eights (with thins) and wouldn't buy them myself, but I thought that some people may buy them and give the thins to non-vegan family/friends or that it would make an easy option for well intentioned relatives to buy.
    Sorry to hear about Sainsburys - I always find them a bit hit and miss - sometimes they have loads of stuff, sometimes they dont, some of its in the special diets section and some isn't and I always end up spending hours wondering round like a lunatic

    -There are a few Greens & Blacks floating around that may or may not be Vegan, I can never keep up with their constantly changing policy about labelling


    *If you are going to get the Cocoa Loco egg its better value to buy from Able & Cole. Animal Aid are selling it for £12.50 with £3.50 delivery. Able & Cole are selling it for £9.99, delivery is £0.99 but you have to spend more than £10 to qualify (I bought some Sojade chocolate puddings just to put the price up to £10.84 which is still far cheaper than AnimalAid).

    Hi Firestorm, thanks so much for putting such a helpful list up! Perfectly timed too since my dad got me a milk chocolate easter egg today *groan* (yes, I am an adult haha). I think I will have to donate it or something...
