Vegan Easter Ideas

Hi guys

Here are some vegan Easter ideas and where to get them in Australia!

Hot Cross Buns

Available from Woolworths, $4.98. The ones from Coles contain Gelatine. Many organic varieties from health food stores are also vegan. Some chocolate and mocha flavoured can be vegan, too - so check the label!

Ashmore's Strawberries in Dark Chocolate

Available from Myers & David Jones (usually sold in a 'christmas cracker' shaped container, rather than a box). $10-$15.

Pink Lady Eggs and Bunny

Available from Sweet As/Myer/David Jones, $5-$20

Booja Booja Organic Truffles

Available from Health food stores or Cruelty Free Shop, $15-$20 a box

KRAS Cherry Liqueur Chocolate Box

Available from Coles/Safeway in the International Foods section, $5-$7. Some stores do not stock this, so ensure to call first to check.

Chocolatier Dark Chocolate Thins box and Egg

Available from Coles/Woolies/SUPA IGA/Myer/David Jones, $10-15

Sweet Williams Easter Bunnies

Available from Woolworths, Leos, Coles and SUPA IGA (suggest calling to confirm), $4-6

Koko Blacks Truffles

Available from Koko Blacks. Pistachio/marzipan, Mint Fondant and caramelised oranges, $2-2.50each. Can be put into gift boxes - a great gift! The raspberry sorbet martini with pistachio and chocolate is also vegan..as is all their other dark chocolate gift bags and coffee etc.

Lindt Dark Easter bunny

Available from most supermarkets, $4 - $6. The Lindt chocolate eggs are also vegan and available from most outlets.

Choceur Marzipan Eggs and Bunny

Available from ALDI, $3.99+

The Simpsons Dark Chocolate Easter Egg with Jellies

Available at Target (please call to confirm - this item can be a little difficult to find).

Alpha Confectionery

Available at David Jones and many specialty/health/sweet stores. For those in Perth, I know these are at the SUPA IGA in Wanneroo and Kosher Mart in Menora. Most Jewish shops sell Alpha Chocolates...but not really the Easter speciality items, SUPA IGA is the best bet.

Sorini Mint Truffles

Available from Reject Shop, $3

Kirsch Cherries Gift Box

Coco Chocolate in Sydney, $35 (can also order online)

Constant Craving Chocolate Egg with Truffles inside!

Available from Cruelty Free Shop, $17.99 or through Constant Craving

Bonvita Organic Chocolate Egg and Easter Eggs

Available from The Vegan Store
Mini Easter Eggs from Gluten Free Shop

I have only mentioned a handful. There are many vegan chocolates in supermarkets - but for a larger range, I strongly recommend David Jones/Myer and if you are in Melbourne, Radical Grocery.
