    I noticed that Lush are doing some Easter products (little bath bombs shaped like bunnies and eggs). Perhaps that could be an alternative gift for some people.

    I saw an easter egg today in the Co-op near me, it was Celtic or something like that, labelled vegan in big letters on the front. An egg with some mint chocolate thins as well, 5.99.
    No sense being pessimistic. It wouldn't work anyway.

    We got Simpsons dairy free eggs from Morrisons for 1.99 each.



    They also had divine chocolate eggs that were about 10 each and there were Green & Blacks eggs but as we all know, they're not vegan.

    Yes I noticed this too. I don't usually buy easter eggs as my girls get given at least one by family members and that seems plenty seeing as its all a load of b**l**ks anyway!
    I was looking for one of the kinerton ones this year tho to replace a cadburys milk chocolate egg that one of the girls won at a school disco and I had to forcably remove from her and had her cry all the way home (don't imagine a tiny child she's nearly 11 and we had a jolly good argument).
    But I got her a punnet of strawberries instead - which she loved!
    I think Lush things or just a really nice bar of vegan chocolate are a good alternative.

    I scoured the internet trying to find my little one an egg but the postage costs were so hubby visited a chocolate shop on the mainland and she's now having one handmade in Athens and then hubby and the shop owner are going to hand decorate it for her He's not enquired as to the cost yet so I dread to think! Wonder if she'll share it with me? Probably not, she's only 5 and a chocolate junkie

    We used to get the Kinnerton bars, eggs and kids eggs (like Simpsons themed ones) here in Aust. too but I haven't seen any this year. I thought they were great, esp. for kids with lactose/nut allergies.

    Wow, what lovely parents your daughter has! What a pain in the bum for you though having to go to all that trouble - will almost be be a shame to eat a 'bespoke' egg!

    I don't want her thinking that by being vegan she is missing out on anything so I'll go to any lengths to get her things like Easter Eggs and soya desserts - good job hubby works on the mainland though because not a single easter egg on this island is vegan - and I know because I've read all the packages

    Maybe vegans should have chocolate Easter cubes or Easter pyramids, instead.

    [come to think of it, Easter rectangles would make this all a lot easier for us to find.]

    I bought some mini-Divine (the fairtrade eggs) dark chocolate eggs to give to children this year. They "contain traces of milk" which will never cease to confuse me. And for myself (because noone else will) I bought a PILE Of montezuma truffles and bars. i went a bit cray. i'll still be munching come summer!

    For non-chocolate easter alternatives i've given colouring pictures and pens, and little craft kits to make your own chick before. they're very cute.

    OR once when i was a child, my friend's mum had an Easter party. We were allowed to cast our own eggs by melting chocolate into a mould and setting it. then we could stick icing and sweet all over the shell to jazz it up. that was the best easter egg ever. I bet kids would love you forever if you did that.

    I was tucking into a Mint Celtic unit last night, apparently from Waitrose. No idea re price and further specs at mo though - will update if I find out.

    Good round-up, Risker!

    Hotel Chocolat are doing half eggs with 8 mini gianduja eggs in - 225g 14 and dark chicks (think they might be doing rabbits and other shapes as well) - 85g for a fiver. Probably some other stuff too.

    Or you could buy moulds from Lakeland and make them yourself

    Also, my local wholefood shop are selling Moo Free milk-alternative eggs. They're not very big and I think about a fiver but they're rather cute looking.

    Awesome! I think my bf is buying me a moo-free egg (he jolly well better be, I hinted heavily, if an email with a weblink http://www.veganstore.co.uk/mm5/merc...egory_Code=021 saying 'Look, my favourite chocolate in easter egg form, HINT!!' counts as a hint ) but I might buy some for myself :P.

    I got some of the Montezuma Mini Eggs with Almond Praline today, thought about saving them for Easter for about 5 minutes and then shared them out at work instead They went down really well with my colleagues but I would have preferred the praline to be a bit squidgier.

    Awww. Did you find any in the end?

    I'm not sure if you would want to buy easter stuff online but I found these on my (virtual) travels:

    http://www.naturalcandystore.com/pro...dy/candy-gifts

    http://www.naturalcandystore.com/pro...de-sweet-earth

    Then there's this, I'm not sure about shipping to Canada though: http://www.premiumchocolatiers.com/easter-fun-c-21.html

    Or same chocolate but they definitely seem to ship to Canada: http://www.chocolate.com/products/easter-eggs/

    Thanks Some of those look great. I was thinking of having my mom take some home for the family, but I could likely just have the company ship it Ontario for me

    Walmart was of no help. They sent me to someone else who was foreign and didn't seem to understand what I meant by dairy free... "Yes yes, lots of chocolate" Nothing against them, but it doesn't help us much when we call to ask questions.

    And has anyone ever tried any of the chocolates on the sites? Any suggestions? I'm looking for something to send home for the family, but I'm also trying to make veganism look a little more tempting with the meals I cook, treats I send, etc

    Oooo those raw eggs looks like a lot of chocolate for your money, healthy too. It says there are 4 flavours, raw, orange, mint and purity.

    Not sure if you managed to find a moofree egg elsewhere, they are available on these sites too:

    http://www.animalaidshop.org.uk/easter.htm

    http://www.veganstore.co.uk/mm5/merc...egory_Code=540

    http://www.plamilfoods.co.uk/other-p...ree-easter-egg

    http://www.alternativestores.com/eth...prod_3434.html

    It's also available on amazon! But it's being sold there by 'A lot of chocolate' I think.

    Thank you kiki - I might try one of those other sources because I think a moofree one would be good for my mother who always claims she doesn't like vegan chocolate.

    I thought I had seen the Whizzers ones recently, but perhaps it was longer ago than I thought. This site says they are "discontinued" http://www.naturallygoodfood.co.uk/C...ed_Eggs_GF_50g though that could mean that that particular firm has stopped stocking them. Other sites say they are out of stock

    Be careful to check the Tesco finest egg, I looked at this in the shop the other day and though I cant be sure I thought it listed beeswax as an ingredient

    Is the Simpsons Kinnerton egg available this year?
    The egg is available but it is not in a Simpsons box, it is a Tigger box (available from Sainsburys and Waitrose I think), Kinnerton are also do a large more adult easter egg with a 95gram egg and 100gram bar of chocolate inside - you can get this in Asda.

    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.

    I haven't seen dark Kinnerton eggs in any of the shops round here, this year or last
