The Waitrose Easter Bunny has been busy creating delicious goodies for us all to enjoy. Whether it’s our No.1 Hidden Truffles Blonde Chocolate Easter Egg, our No.1 Delectable Duo Eggs or our cute friend Sunny Side Sam, the treats on offer ensure there’s something for everyone. All of our confectionery is made with Fairtrade cocoa and all of our own-brand Easter confectionery packaging is 100% recyclable.
“Easter is, of course, the time to indulge in something deliciously and luxuriously chocolatey. Normally this would be an egg – the traditional symbol of spring and renewal. Inspired by Isaac Newton, I’ve chosen an apple instead – signifying new discoveries, keeping an open mind and questioning everything. Something to ponder, perhaps, as you dig into the blonde chocolate surface of this gorgeous Golden Apple and discover the rich dark chocolate and crunchy praline feuilletine chocolates within.”
According to research carried out for the Waitrose & Partners 2021-22 Food & Drink Report, 25% of us will be having more dinner parties than we did before the pandemic. Whether you’re hosting Easter lunch for all the family or looking for a special centrepiece to wow guests this spring, we have plenty of delicious options to choose from. Unique to Waitrose, No.1 Dorset Lamb Leg with Rosemary is tender, sweet and delicately flavoured, while No.1 Scottish Prime Fillet of Salmon is ideal for Good Friday dinner. Vegan options include our Vegan Nut Roast, made with aubergines and butternut squash, and packed full of flavour.
Who said hot cross buns had to be sweet? New this year is the fruit-free Hot Cross Brioche Roll – serve it for breakfast with your favourite spread or with a tasty burger from the barbecue over the Easter weekend.
Or, for those who like to stick to the sweeter side, we have new White Chocolate and Lemon Hot Cross Buns, Sticky Toffee Hot Cross Buns and Triple Chocolate Hot Cross Buns. Which one will you try first?
Our scrumptious new Easter cake is designed and made exclusively for Waitrose Entertaining by the renowned Fiona Cairns bakery. Chocolate sponge is filled and coated with chocolate buttercream, drizzled with glossy chocolate-flavoured icing and hand decorated with sugar-coated chocolate eggs – the perfect sweet centrepiece for any celebration.
Flowers are an easy way to welcome some colour into the home this Easter. Whether as a gift for a loved one or a little treat for yourself, we’ll have a gorgeous selection of bouquets to choose from in our shops and on Waitrose Florist, which offers a home delivery service.
With lots of us hosting at home more regularly, adding some decorations around the house can make a celebration a little bit more special. Placing the Faux Floral Wreath on the door is sure to give guests a very warm welcome, and the Easter Bunny Crackers, which contain a game made from card, are just the thing for keeping young ones occupied during Easter lunch.
