I think we all know a Potterhead who’d love this Harry Potter sorting hat Easter egg… and if you don’t, chances are it’s you.
Slattery’s Patissier & Chocolatier is selling ‘The Sorting Egg’, which is a milk chocolate egg filled with milk chocolate callets.
They come complete with a scroll inside, which will tell the proud owner if they’re in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin.
The eggs – which take around two hours to make a batch of 18 – are so delicate they can only be bought from the shop and can’t be delievered.
The Sorting Egg is priced at £14.95 for the handmade creation and orders can be made on their website.
If you don’t have the chance to travel to Manchester, or if you’re just not a HP fan, there are some other great options out there this year.
Cadbury’s has created a giant Daim Easter egg which is actually made with Daim pieces in the shell.
Finally, an actual egg the same as the specific type of chocolate we want – hopefully other chocolate bars follow suit and we’ll soon see Snickers, Mars or Twix eggs?
The Daim Easter eggs are currently available for £10 from Asda and they’re called the ‘Daim Inclusion Easter Egg’.
As well as a giant Daim ‘Inclusion’ egg, Cadbury’s have created an egg with fruit and nut inside of the shell, which is available from eBay.
In this fast-moving and developing world, it’s a wonder the humble Easter egg has stood still.
If chocolate isn’t for you, fear not, you can get your hands on an Easter egg made entirely out of cheese.
Asda – who were behind the cheese advent calendar – have launched the Cheester Egg.
The egg-shaped cheese, comes with crumbly mini oatcake crackers and a sachet of sweet caramelised onion chutney, nice!
James Clapham, commercial manager of Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses, who are behind the egg, said:
We’re a nation of cheese fanatics, so we know consumers will love the Cheester Egg.
It’s an un-expected yet delicious twist on a traditional Easter favourite and we can’t wait for Asda customers to enjoy our handmade quality blue cheese.
Jo Miller, Asda’s Head of Cheese (what a job!), added:
We’re so excited to launch the Cheester Egg. Following the incredible response to our Christmas cheese advent calendar, the Cheester Egg was the obvious next step to show our customers that we’re constantly listening and ensuring there’s something for everyone at Asda this Easter.
Luckily, I live in Manchester, so I might just have to pay a visit to Slattery’s…
