Avo-lovers, rejoice: now avocados can be rightly worshipped and celebrated at Easter too.

Courtesy of Waitrose, fans will now be able to tuck into a giant easter egg which looks exactly like the tasty, soft green fruit this April.

Whilst the chocolate version doesn’t offer quite as many health benefits as it’s healthy fats-filled twin, it’s chocolate-goodness is sure to offer health benefits for the soul.

The Waitrose Chocolate Avocado comes in a dark chocolate shell, which opens to smooth white chocolate with natural green colouring and a cocoa dusted ‘stone’ – resembling a giant avocado.

But chocolate fans can rest-assured – despite looking just like a giant avocado, the egg is actually made using 100% chocolate, with no avocado flavouring – so it tastes like chocolate, and definitely not an avocado. Think of it more as a homage to the green fruit.

The shell and stone are Belgian chocolate (made with 70% cocoa), while the white chocolate middle uses natural colouring to imitate the green flesh of the fruit.

Kate Kind, product developer, said: “Inspired by the continued trend for all things avocado, we wanted to create a fun addition to our Easter range and are really excited about the launch of our new Easter egg.

“If you’re an ‘avo-lover’ with a sweet tooth, this unique twist on the classic egg makes the perfect Easter treat and will provide a fun talking point among family and friends this season.”

The new Waitrose Chocolate Avocado is available in Waitrose branches nationwide and online, from 19th February, priced at £8 (250g).
