Easter is right around the corner and if you're looking for some of the best Easter Eggs to treat those around you, look no further.

At Female First we've been lucky enough to sample a wide variety of eggs ahead of the Easter weekend this year, and whilst we all may have piled on a few pounds we've got great big grins on our faces.

We've also got a handy guide at the bottom of this piece letting you know just what you're consuming with certain brands and treats this Easter.

Sifting through mountains of chocolates, here's our official Easter Egg Taste Test for 2016...

Tesco finest* Lemon & Persian Lime Easter Egg, £3

The perfect size for what you pay, the lemon and persian lime is quite overpowering here, but that shouldn't put zest fans off! It's lovely, unique and definitely worth a try if you're looking for something a little different!

Morrisons Belgian Milk Chocolate Marbled Easter Egg, £4

Now this is some good chocolate! It's quite heavy but that's not a bad thing, it just means it last quite a while. Creamy and delicious, the decoration is very attractive and minimalist, like modern decor. Good for both men and women, the unisex packaging allows anybody to indulge.

Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Belgian White Chocolate Easter Egg with Pistachios, £6

This is a treat, especially for those who don't eat white chocolate often. Deliciously creamy and a brilliant combination to put with the pistachios. The colouring takes a little bit of getting used to but once you get past that you're onto a winner with this one.

Asda Extra Special Belgian Milk Chocolate Egg with Honeycomb, £6

A personal favourite of everything that was sent in, the honeycomb and chocolate here is perfectly balanced and beautifully presented. The office were in agreement that this was one of if not THE best Easter Egg we've all had the pleasure of tasting!

Tesco finest* The Coconut Egg, £10

Perhaps the most beautifully presented Easter Egg we've laid eyes on, this creation is layered exactly like a coconut, with gorgeous Belgian white chocolate and a toasted coconut filling inside the shell, encased with a layer of delicious milk chocolate. All of the flavours combine for an incredible taste explosion and when you've polished off the egg, you're left with five coconut truffles - also extremely edible.

Prestat Gin & Tonic Easter Egg, £15

A little too small for the price, but an interesting addition to the chocolate shell with the subtle hint of lemon and the popping candy. It's not at all overbearing and a very nice treat, with the addition of truffles allowing you to indulge a little further. They were very creamy and the gin wasn't overpowering.

Stas Sweetie Milk Chocolate Egg, Ocado, £7

Some of the nicest chocolate we've had with everything that's been sent in. It's interesting to add sweets to an Easter Egg and whilst it would have been very nice without, they did add a unique and eye-catching touch.

NEW Ferrero Rocher Easter Egg, £11.54

Quite expensive for how thin the egg is, though the nuttiness in the shell makes it less sickly as it breaks it all up. It's quite light and extremely moreish, with a couple of us in the office admitting we'd be able to finish the entire thing in one sitting!

The Luxury Chocolate Easter Egg Box, Iceland, £7.99


There are lots of different flavours in this unique take on Easter from Iceland, with the rest of the cake perhaps being the more exciting part rather than the actual eggs! It was very tasty and all of the different elements worked together. A little messy so best to eat with a spoon.

Asda Extra Special Belgian Milk Chocolate Golden Egg with Milk Chocolate Truffles, £8

Prepare to start wiping gold colouring off your hands if you're going to indulge here! Beautifully presented and with a great taste, this is a really pleasant offering with some lovely additions in the form of the truffles. It lasts a long while and seems great value for money.

Famous Names Whisky Collection Egg, £10

This is some great tasting dark chocolate with a good thickness to it. The chocolates with whisky are of course an acquired taste, but this is perfect for any whisky fan.
