Waitrose's Easter 2021 food range has just what you need for a real show-stopping weekend of celebrations.
Over the last few months the chain has seen a huge increase in customers searching for all things Easter online, with many Brits looking forward to when lockdown restrictions start to ease across the UK. So whether you will be celebrating virtually with your extended family or plan to keep your long weekend low-key with your household, the upmarket chain has plenty of fun sweet treats and main dishes to keep the whole family happy and well-fed.
Anni Ludhra-Gent, Waitrose Seasonal Brand Manager adds, “We are all in need of things to celebrate and look forward to in the coming months – with Easter being the event we’re all hoping will put a spring back in our step!
“With hot cross buns from Heston Blumenthal, chocolate pomegranates and cute bumblebee decorations, we’ve got plenty of playful products to put a smile on our customers’ faces.”
Grown-up chocolate lovers who enjoy an Easter egg or two, or three will love this year's show-stopper – the Chocolate Pomegranate (£3), which looks exactly like the real deal. This tantalising treat is sweet, sharp and fruity with flavours of caramelised white chocolate combined with fragrant pomegranate. The chain has also brought back its equally impressive White Chocolate Spring Lemon for this year too for those who like zesty citrus flavours.
For those with a sweet tooth, you can't go wrong with the Heston from Waitrose Mocha Coffee Hot Cross Buns (£1.70 a pack). They are made from rich brioche dough with dates, chunks of chocolate, plump sultanas and coffee. Absolute mouth-watering bliss.
If Easter Sunday sees you having to pull out all the 'Easter egg hunt' stops for your kids, then you will need to arm yourself with the best treats and Easter egg hunt accessories that Waitrose has to offer. You can decorate your home with some felt hanging decorations, or if you're taking the hunt to the garden, you could even hang the decorations in your garden. The kids will definitely need something to put all their eggs and Milk Chocolate Bunnies in – and these bright and colourful Metal Buckets are perfect.
Lastly, if you like your fish on Good Friday then the chain's selection of responsibly sourced fish dishes will hit the mark, the pre-prepped Fish Pie Mix can be used to make a delicious homemade pie for the whole family to enjoy. If you're after something light, fresh and perfect for spring, then why not try the tasty sounding Mediterranean Sea Bass Fillets with Rocket Pesto and Butter?
