4 unusual Easter eggs you can buy at M&S right now

With Easter Sunday just under a week away, if you haven’t already stocked up on your Easter eggs, you’d better hop to it. If you’re looking to surprise someone with an Easter egg a little less ordinary, take a look at the egg-citing range of eggs on offer at Marks and Spencer right now. Here are four of my favourites:

Colin the Caterpillar – Colin’s Apple, 350g/£8

Colin the Caterpillar, Colin's Apple egg

I’ve never seen an apple-shaped Easter egg before and this Colin the Caterpillar egg looks pretty cool, even if it does have a jelly worm eating holes in it. Made of smooth, creamy milk chocolate, the egg is paired with a bag of jelly worms which are actually not as bad as they sound – pleasantly fruity, in fact. Ideal for kids.

Value for money: ££££
Overall rating: 9/10 (could’ve been just a little bit cheaper!)

M&S Dark Chocolate Quirky Bunny, £10/220g

Dark chocolate bunny rabbit

In a twist on the traditional bunny rabbit, M&S’ abstract dark chocolate bunny is covered in multi-faceted sides and brushed with edible gold paint. I’m not a huge fan of dark chocolate and this was a little too bitter for my liking, but I was very impressed by the design of this modern chocolate bunny rabbit. 
 
Value for money: ££
Overall rating: 7/10

Frozen White Chocolate Arendelle Castle 220g/£8

M&S Frozen castle egg

This is not an egg, but an intricately decorated white chocolate castle just like the Arendelle Castle in Disney’s Frozen. If I was a little girl, I would be thrilled to wake up on Easter Sunday and discover that the Easter bunny had left this for me. The white chocolate was thick, velvety and slightly sweet. It’s a shame you don’t get anything else with the castle, though – I expected to find a bag of sweets, especially as this egg/castle is targeted at children. 
 
Value for money: ££
Overall rating: 6/10

Marks and Spencers Hollow Soft Fudge Egg, 100g/£5

Fudge Easter egg

Unlike the other M&S easter eggs I’ve featured, this egg is actually egg-shaped. It’s made from a rich, buttery fudge, instead of chocolate; thedownside of this being that the fudge is fairly soft, so the egg can lose its shape easily if not handled with care (although let’s be fair, it’ll be in your mouth in no time anyway). This egg would be perfect for any fudge lover and although it’s smaller than your average Easter egg, the size works well because the fudge is rather sweet. 

Value for money: £££
Overall rating: 6/10

 M&S sent me a selection of chocolate eggs to review, although I purchased the Frozen castle egg myself. I was not obliged to write a positive review of any of these products.

    I really like the quirky designs of these! If I were choosing based on taste however, I would go for the Hollow Soft Fudge Egg. It sounds so very delicious x

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:19 pm

      I’m sure you would’ve loved the fudge egg!

  4. April 11, 2017 / 10:03 pm

    Wow, I love the look of the one that is sprayed gold. I love anything unusual like that!

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:19 pm

      Me too, it gave it that added touch of class!

  5. April 12, 2017 / 10:04 am

    These look fab! I just love the basic Cadbury one’s at Easter x

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:17 pm

      I like a good old Cadbury’s egg too. I can never resist the M&S ones either though >.<

  6. April 12, 2017 / 12:33 pm

    They all look delicious but I like the look of the frozen castle especially as white chocolate is my favourite!

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:16 pm

      It’s reduced to £2.20 at M&S currently!

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:16 pm

    The frozen white chocolate castle candy is by far my favorite! It’s got the coolest design.

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:15 pm

      And here’s a tip – it’s currently reduced to £2.20 in M&S!

    What amazing easter eggs! I’ve not come across any of them yet, but I love the diversity!

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:15 pm

      M&S always produce a stunning selection of Easter eggs – my only problem is choosing just 1/2!

  9. April 12, 2017 / 5:21 pm

    They make some good easter eggs and really unusual ones too

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:14 pm

      I always love browsing the M&S Easter eggs 🙂

    What a fun collection! I love that quirky chocolate bunny.

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:14 pm

      I loved the shape of the bunny – shame it was made of dark chocolate, which I’m not too keen on.

  11. April 12, 2017 / 7:20 pm

    What a lovely selection of chocolates! It would be a success with little man! 🙂

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:08 pm

      Aww I’m sure he would have loved Colin’s Apple 🙂

  12. April 13, 2017 / 7:48 pm

    I don’t really think about unusally easter eggs like this but they would definitely make great alternatives as gifts!

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:08 pm

      Definitely 🙂 I would’ve been delighted with any of these eggs.

    The geometric rabbit one blew my socks off! That’s how to reinvent the easter egg, it’s stunning. Sad to hear it was too bitter for you, but I agree that a dark chocolate Easter egg sits in a far more niche market than Easter eggs which are actually tasty! Perhaps it should have fought its corner a little more and added in some spices to add to it’s unique-ness; it’s M&S after all, they can afford to give the consumer an extra kick of flavour in exchange for M&S prices.

    • April 24, 2017 / 3:07 pm

      Yes, the shape was very impressive and unlike anything I saw on the shop shelves for Easter this year. I agree that adding spices could have helped to jazz things up a little!

  14. April 14, 2017 / 12:22 am

    Wow these are such great alternatives to Easter eggs!
    I particularly like Colin’s apple 🙂

    My daughter bought my husband the M&S nougat egg like the fudge egg. We felt it was poor value at £5, though it was tasty. . She bought me the M&S 12 bird eggs. They were really pretty, the size about quail size. They had solid white and brown chocolate centres and were delicious.

    • April 24, 2017 / 2:59 pm

      Ooh I saw the nougat egg too, it looked tasty if you’re into nougat. It is a lot of money for £5 though, I agree. The bird eggs sound great!

    • April 24, 2017 / 2:54 pm

      Haha yeah, that was pretty funky!
