It is that time of year again when Easter eggs are back ready for April. It’s always so exciting seeing what eggs are on offer each year and what new ones are about too. However, it is often difficult knowing what Easter eggs are available and which one you want yourself or which one you should buy for your friends and family – that is why I have compiled this list of 20 of the most popular Easter eggs on offer this year, with new and old favourites. I have placed them in order from cheapest to most expensive, for a variety depending what your budget is.
