Giving more back to communities that need the support is important to me; it may be for you too? If so, then you’ll probably be interested in finding out where you can buy Fair Trade Easter eggs. If you are, then here’s a list of chocolate shops that sell them and a selection of what I think are the most interesting Fairtrade Easter eggs.
You could also try Divine Easter eggs which are Fair Trade labelled. You can get them direct as well as from Ethical Superstore who have multi-buy options available for if you wanted to buy more than a couple of them. I’ve reviewed a few of them such as the Divine Milk Chocolate Easter egg, the gorgeous Dark Chocolate Mini Eggs and the fantastic 70% Dark Chocolate Easter Egg.
You should also try Cadbury Gifts Direct as they’re now Fairtrade. These will obviously be great for children as they’ve got some really cool and interesting Easter eggs such as their Dairy Milk Easter egg with a drumming gorilla! They’ve also got some interesting Easter eggs with mugs. Also if the person you’re buying for is very much into their Fair Trade Easter eggs then why not get them this special Sainsburyâ€™s Fairtrade Eggs which only costs Â£8.50.
They also do Fairtrade Hot Chocolate gift which obviously contains Fairtrade Hot chocolate as well as some Dairy Milk bars, some mugs and some other little chocolates.
From what I can tell, Sainsbury’s are the only Supermarket that’s selling Fairtrade Easter eggs this year – with some of them being discounted. As far as I can see they’ve got hollow milk chocolate eggs wrapped in cellophane wrapping and do actually look quite nice and it’s good to see them not using endless amounts of cardboard. They’re 48.4% sugar and 23.3% saturated fats in case you’re interested. They were Â£2.49 each but now they’re down to just Â£2 and they weight 100g each.
They’ve also got these hollow chocolate ducks as which remind me very much of the Thorntons novelty Easter gifts because of the packaging. These are Â£1 each and are 53.9% sugars and 22.8% saturated fats.
If you wanted a chocolate bunny then you can get an own-branded 155g one for Â£2 each. They do look very cute but are 52.5% sugars and 21.5% saturated fats. But it is Easter only once a year.
Sainsbury’s also do a medium-sized KitKat that comes with a mug that’s made from a Fairtrade recipe. I’ve not see any other supermarket sell this one, Asda has marked them as “out of stock” though.
Update 2012: I can’t see this one on their site this year.
If you wanted a fairly basic Fair Trade Easter egg then consider this one from Thorntons which costs Â£6.50 and is wrapped in a green foil and made with no artificial colours and from organic chocolate. Another bonus is that itâ€™s suitable for vegetarians and is gluten free. How good is that? I’ve not actually reviewed this one yet, so I can’t give you an indication of how good it is, but I’ve never tried a naff Thorntons Easter Egg! Find out more at .
You can also try who sell a small selection of Fairtrade Easter eggs or the Fairtrade Foundation who have a complete list of chocolate companies that sell Fairtrade chocolate.
