Made with planted-based Nutmilk, Hotel Chocolat’s thick Easter egg treat is the ideal surprise for any vegan in your life.

It comes presented in a reusable keepsake tin, designed with inspiration from the tactile cacao pod. I can only image this will be a top seller.

The best thing about this organic range is the palm oil free ingredients and 100% recyclable / biodegradable packaging.
