The 5 Best Vegan and Gluten Free Easter Eggs

Years ago, Easter presented very slim pickings for those who were vegan/and or gluten free with a sweet tooth. At best the supermarket aisle would have a selection of one or two choices, and often the online offerings weren’t readily available either, which sometimes meant looking on with envy across the Easter holiday period.

Thankfully nowadays with the rise of veganism and better knowledge of free from foods, everything is different! There are now a number of gluten free, vegan easter eggs to choose from, making Easter a time of celebration for all.

Whether you’re looking for vegan milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate, there are vegan and gluten free options available, and they’re all delicious.

Below we’ve rounded up our favourite five for the 2021 Easter holiday season!
