Spring has officially arrived and, with it, a popping of pastel colours and some sunshine peeping through the clouds. Easter is upon us and this year, there are no eggs-cuses not to have a wonderful and eggs-tremely delicious time with your loved ones. We’ve rounded up the very best edible Easter treats you can buy on the King’s Road so you can sit back and indulge when Sunday, 4 April finally arrives.
Hop on over to Venchi, the Italian chocolatiers who specialise in over 100 different recipes of the sweet stuff. Choose from a dark, milk and white chocolate selection of eggs with many covered in delicious hazelnuts, pistachios, almonds or raspberry granules. For the little ones, the ‘Soft toy bunny with chocolate mini eggs‘ is a great option, cute, cuddly and perfectly sweet but for someone with a slightly more sophisticated palette, the ‘75% Chocoviar Egg‘ is a fantastic suggestion.
