Heston Blumenthal’s Eggstraordinary Chocolate Hen’s Eggs might have you reaching for an eggcup at first glance, but these delicious treats are definitely better served without toast. Other new confectionery for this Easter includes a Spring Lemon that will also make you look twice, a chocolate lion and elephant, and a new pastel mini avocado trio.

‘I love that there are always new trends and tastes to explore in confectionery. Hot off the heels of last summer’s fruit fashion trends, we’ve injected some fruity playfulness into our Easter selection. This Spring Lemon might look convincing, but take a bite and you’ll discover creamy white chocolate infused with gently zesty citrus.’
This year our Easter cakes and bakes are all about mini treats, perfect for sharing with friends and family. No-one will be able to pass up on these decadent chocolate brownies.
We’ve also got a Fiona Cairns Easter Gingerbread Biscuit Box, mini egg topped chocolate nests and pretty buttercream
iced simnel cupcakes.
If the choice between hot cross buns and chocolate is too tricky to make this Easter, don’t compromise and enjoy both! Waitrose & Partners has introduced two new hot cross bun flavours – Sweet & Indulgent Chocolate & Cherry and Sticky & Rich Toffee. Both are delicious toasted, with the chocolate chunks and toffee pieces melting to make a gooey, sweet filling.
Beautifully seasoned and naturally tender, the Waitrose & Partners No.1 Dry Aged Sirloin of Beef Roasting Joint makes an impressive alternative to traditional lamb this Easter. For an added celebratory touch, serve with a generous splash of Heston from Waitrose & Partners Bone Marrow Sauce and a colourful array of baby vegetables.
Our bouquets feature the best and most fragrant blooms of the season – think gerberas, roses, lisianthus, tulips, lilies and stocks. Ideal for adding instant colour to the table, they also make a great gift and are guaranteed to stay fresh for five days.
Lightweight, durable and stylish, our reactive glaze melamine tableware is a great option for families with young children – and ideal for when the party spills out into the garden. Easter napkins, crackers and decorations will be perfect to help set the scene and Easter hunt kits will keep little ones entertained.
