An incredible selection of Easter eggs handmade by celebrated Whitefield chocolatiers and cake artists Slattery has landed in popular Manchester department store House of Fraser.
The collection of Easter eggs is impressive. Already proving incredibly popular is a new animal collection which includes an adorable milk chocolate sloth cradling a flake, sloths, pandas, llamas and nahwhals – a metallic blue whale with a unicorn horn and cute rosy cheeks.
There’s a circus egg that comes with its own waistcoat, ringmaster’s jacket and top hat and looks like it belongs centre stage next to Hugh Jackman in The Greatest Showman. It’s priced at £16.95.
Superhero eggs including Superman and Wonder Woman are new additions that have been flying off the shelves, whilst there are boozy eggs that come with a choice of either a Jack Daniels, Jagermeister or Disaronno miniature. Booze and chocolate? Yes please!
A brick egg priced at £13.95 is expected to be a big seller this year after the recent release of Lego Movie 2.
And vegans, fear not because you can join in on the chocolatey fun too. A popular new addition to the collection this year is a “milk” chocolate vegan Easter egg made using specially made chocolate imported from Germany. Although not decorated as egg-stravagantly as the other eggs, it’s expected to be a big hit with vegans.
“Every year we love to create new and unique Easter eggs that bring excitement to people of all ages,” said Jo Naven of Slattery’s. “Due to demand, we have also bought back some old favourites like the unicorn, Manchester and circus eggs.
“All our eggs are handmade and all slightly different, as the majority of them are too fragile to send by courier, so it’s great to have a city centre presence in Kendal’s.”
One of Manchester’s favourite stores and home to a wide range of designer brands, House of Fraser, also known as Kendal’s, was saved from closure just before Christmas last year.
Make sure you get yourself down there and grab your loved one a egg they won’t forget. The Slattery stand is on the ground floor of House of Fraser just behind the Dior stand. Availability is subject to demand.
