I remember wondering where to buy fair trade easter eggs many moons ago, and it was like searching for the back of your earring at 2am in the club. I ended up in Myer in the extremely expensive gift shop section, buying a bright blue monstrosity that I couldn’t even be sure tasted any good.
Nowadays they’re much easier to find, although still (sadly) not ubiquitous, nor plentiful. But, thankfully, we’ve come a long way since that night at the club. I mean, Myer.
Where to Find Fair Trade Easter Eggs
Chocolatier is super-easy to find and they’ve outdone themselves this year with the sheer volume of Easter chocolate delicacies. You could sort your whole family out just with this lot. Gift packs, easter egg hunt packs, mini eggs, eggs with bits in them, fancy eggs, and even chocolates that look like hot cross buns. Check them out for yourself – there’s something for everyone here.
Divine has a bunch of cute Easter stuff this year (check out the range here), and while it’s probably too late to order online, they’re still available from this list of retailers. There’s a few shops near me that stock them, so I’ll be having a look this week.
Absolute Organic only have two easter eggs this year (two is better than none though!, a dark chocolate, and a milk chocolate, which you can get at Your local organic, health store, IGA or fruit shop.
Coles are jumping in (cautiously, it seems) with one bunny. I hope it tastes good.
While not quite as stringent or as strong as fair trade certification, products that are UTZ certified are coming from farms that are working to be more sustainable, and farmers that have better conditions and opportunities.
All of the Choceur, Dairy Fine, Moser Roth and Specially Selected Easter range at Aldi are UTZ certified. They have a huge range of bunnies, eggs, beanie eggs, caramel mini eggs, – even chocolate shaped like a cow! Plenty to choose from here.
Haigh’s chocolates are also UTZ certified, and the range they have this year are dark and milk chocolate eggs, ducks, mini eggs, chickens, bilbies, lollipops, gift boxes, and even a chocolate murray cod. You’re welcome.
