This year’s Easter treats from M&S Food include artistic eggs, twists on classic hot cross buns, and extremely chocolatey treats!
Whether you’re after your first hot cross bun of the year (let’s face it, it’s never too early) or already deciding which chocolate eggs you’ll be getting for friends and family, you won’t be short of exciting, innovative options in your nearest M&S Foodhall.
Here are some of our top picks from the delicious new Easter ranges that are already in store now – and this year, more of the M&S Easter eggs than ever before come in fully recyclable packaging.
Many of the luxury Easter eggs this year are inspired by an artistic theme, including the new Drippy Egg and the hand-decorated Collection Belgian Milk Chocolate Floral Egg. Another on-trend addition to the range is the Collection Golden Blond Chocolate & Pistachio Egg, following on from the new golden blond chocolate variety which was so popular at Christmas.
