The best Easter eggs 2024: 38 must-try chocolatey creations

Looking for this year's best Easter eggs? You've come to the right place. If you have someone in your life that says Easter eggs are ‘just for kids’, we recommend cutting them out immediately. While it is true that the Easter Bunny rudely only chooses to visit the younger half of the population, grown-ups can still get their chocolate fix by snapping up an Easter egg for themselves.

No matter how old we get, there’s something about the joy of a chocolate Easter egg that fills us with glee. Whether it’s unwrapping the foil coating or discovering the hidden treats inside, our love for Easter eggs is as strong as when we were five years old.

In the last few years though, Easter eggs have taken on a bit of a life of their own, as shops and online retailers race to see who can come up with the most Instagram-friendly or unique offerings. If you are looking to go all out for Easter this year, there are plenty of options that should tickle your fancy with everything from simple eggs to extravagant easter hampers. 


There are still plenty of options for the traditionalists too though, as well as people who never really grew out of their Milkybar and Cadbury’s phase (and there’s nothing wrong with that!). To help you decide which of the best Easter eggs to choose this year, we’ve rounded up the best options that we could find for 2024, covering a range of styles and budgets.  

We’ve even tried a few ourselves (all in the name of journalism, of course) so look out for our tasting notes on some of the eggs to see our expert opinion. Now, all that’s left to do is for you to nab yourself an egg or two, or three or four…


Luxury Easter eggs

When it comes to chocolate, we’re of the opinion that there is no such thing as too much. If a luxury Easter egg is the only option for you this year, check out our pick of over-the-top chocolate creations below.
