Alternative Easter Treats For People Who Don’t Like Chocolate
Year after year Easter is becoming a bigger cause for celebration here in the UK. Although the religious connotations aren’t as prominent as they once were, it is still a holiday that is well looked forward to by many people up and down the country. Of course, it goes without saying that the majority of children look forward to Easter for one thing, the masses of chocolate eggs that they will receive.
Whilst chocolate plays a huge part in the Easter holidays, surprisingly to some, there are actually quite a few adults and children out there who don’t like chocolate. This can make purchasing Easter-related gifts quite difficult, to say the least. If your little one isn’t fused by chocolate and you’re tearing your hair out looking for an alternative to give them this Easter, keep reading today, British Essentials have some great ideas for you.
It goes without saying that the easiest swap is to purchase sweets instead of chocolate. Whether you go for a classic big tub of Haribo or lots of different smaller bags of sweets like Fruit-tella and Maoam, you can guarantee that they will go down well with your little one. You can even make a personalised little hamper for them with all of their favourites. You may find that some big brands make specific Easter shaped sweets too, such as Bassett's jelly bunnies, so keep an eye out for these.

Why not purchase some bunny cupcake cases, little Easter-related cake decorations and different coloured icing to create your own perfect Easter cakes?
