The Gnaw squirrels are eggstremely excited for Easter! With everything from our unique Chocolate Dinosaurs to Cracked Egg Easter Hot Chocolate Bombes, our Easter Chocolate range has more scrummy chocolate treats on offer than ever before!
Before taking a closer look at each of our fabulously fun Easter gifts, we thought we would answer a common question “Why do we eat chocolate at Easter?”
For many of us, we associate Easter with chocolate, Easter Eggs and gifts. For others, it’s the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and this religious celebration is where the tradition of chocolate Easter eggs is thought to originate from.
Easter eggs were seen to symbolize the empty tomb of Jesus from where he was resurrected. They’re also seen to symbolise the end of Lent fasting, the 40 day period leading up to Easter, where eggs are not normally consumed by many Christians and so enjoying an egg is a real treat!
The first English chocolate eggs were thought to be introduced in a very basic format at the end of the 19th Century. Since then, Easter has become more and more associated with chocolatey treats as a fun twist on the religious rituals, making Easter more accessible to those who are non-religious and for children.
Now that you know the history behind why we enjoy chocolate at Easter, here are some of our scrummy treats on offer for all ages and tastes!
The squirrels are hopping with excitement about our all-new limited edition Eggstra Tasty and super delicious hot chocolate stirrer made with their dreamy smooth chocolate with the added treat of sugar-coated eggs! This indulgent treat is sure to hop its way into your or a loved one’s heart!
Making delicious hot chocolates with our stirrers is as easy as 1, 2, 3! First, grab your favourite mug and pour in some hot milk. Next, take our chocolate stirrer and give it a swirl in your mug, watch as the milk chocolate melts and creates an eggstra tasty treat. And to top it off, add some whipped cream and pop the sugar-coated chocolate eggs on top. Or, if you're feeling cheeky, go ahead and eat the sugar-coated eggs first!
And if that wasn’t enough, our palm oil-free Easter hot chocolate treat uses 70% less plastic in our new packaging as part of our journey to be sustainable and reduce our plastic waste.
Why not add to one of our 4 or 8 stirrer hot chocolate bundles?
