Who says that Easter can’t be ethical? Feel good about your Easter indulgences this year with these Australian made vegan, gluten-free and ethical chocolate brands!
We all know that there is nothing better than cracking into a box of Easter eggs first thing on Easter Sunday. With the crinkling foil, egg hunts and who could forget, chocolate for breakfast – it truly is the most delicious time of year!
We can all agree that chocolate tastes better in the shape of an egg! But, unfortunately, those eggs are often terrible for the planet. Not to mention full of dairy, eggs and gluten, meaning some of us miss out on the chocolate joys each and every year.
But Easter doesn’t have to be drab this year! Indulge in chocolate guilt-free with these six vegan, gluten-free and ethical Australian made chocolate Easter eggs for Easter 2021!
