Alternative ways to say ‘Happy Easter’

Easter doesn’t have to be about whole milk Easter Eggs, with so many giving dairy a wide-berth these days – it’s worth considering if another sort of gift might be more suitable for your friend or family member. Whether it’s oat chocolate, something to wear or an Easter Hamper, we’ve done some hunting of our own to bring together the best in alternative gifting this Spring.

FATSO Easter Bundle, £20

More is more this Easter, so get your mitts on this season’s tastiest new chocolate tradition. It’s time to swerve those mini, skinny eggs; hold back on all things hollow and say Hola! to the FATSO Easter Bar Bundle. It’s positively bulging with delicious chocolate chunkiness. Putting the Easter Bunny out of business, this gift gives you the opportunity to bundle up your choice of three FATSO fan favourites, all made with ethically sourced, seriously good quality dark chocolate:

Morn’n Glory: Choca-doodle-doo. This breakfast-inspired combo delivers a dark chocolate bar with 60% Colombian dark chocolate, filled with crunchy cornflakes with a side of toast and orange marmalade.

Home Run: FATSO’s ode to the humble baseball game created by our US friends. The bumper chunks of salted pretzel, whole almonds and honeycomb wrapped in 60%
dark chocolate really knock it outta the park!

Nan’s Stash: We all know Grandmas are the OGs of sneaky snacking, so it only seemed right to raid Nan’s Stash in tribute to these old-school FATSOs. 70% cacao is packed with crunchy peanuts, chewy toffee and buttery digestive biscuits from Nan’s secret stash.

King’s Ransom: As delicious as it is regal, this bar enrobes the majesty of whole pistachios, crunchy cocoa vibes and a hit of mint in FATSO’s crowning dark chocolate. It’s a right, royal, Rhapsody!
