Easter used to be one of the most difficult times of the year for those following a plant-based diet, but no more as Holland & Barrett has launched its biggest ever vegan Easter collection.
The health and wellness retailer is now selling 15 new branded lines and own-label favourites starting from just £0.99 a pop.
Sweet-toothed vegans can shop the entire range in stores across the country and online at hollandandbarret.com. Find your nearest Holland & Barrett using the online store locator.
Among the sweet dairy-free treats are mini egg and crème egg dupes, both of which are exclusive to the health and wellness retailer.
There are also full-sized vegan eggs from popular free-from brands including Divine, NOMO and Buttermilk. Shoppers can choose from tempting flavours like Sea Salt & Caramel, Honeycomb, Chocolate Orange and Raspberry.
Our particular favourite is Doisy & Dam's Almond Butter Cup Egg (£6.99) – which comes complete with 'Nuttercups' that are a lot like the much-loved Reese's Cups.
Molly King, seasonal buyer at Holland & Barrett, says: “We’re over the moon to be bringing the UK high street our largest ever vegan offering this Easter. We at Holland & Barrett believe that being plant-based shouldn’t ever mean missing out on taste or excitement, especially when it comes to chocolate.
“We know that traditional Easter staples, such as crème and mini eggs, are perfect snacking for every age so we are hoping to see similar success for our vegan alternatives as we continue to cater and expand for the ever-growing demand of plant-based eaters.”
We doubt these dairy-free goodies will be around for long, so you ought to get your orders in soon.
The increasing popularity of veganism has seen many retailers release more plant-based products.
Last month, Pret brought out 15 new vegan products including poké, smoothie and buddha bowls.
Asda’s £5 vegan Easter egg recently won ‘best egg’ in Good Housekeeping’s blind taste test.
It reigns in at the top spot with an Extra Thick Blonde and White Chocolate Egg from M&S, £12 (500g) and The Chocolate Libertine Honeycomb Beehive Egg with Honeycomb nuggets, which costs £69.99 (1.05kg).
