The countdown to Easter has begun and that means we can officially start stocking up on chocolate eggs, bunnies, and goodies. But which to choose? To get your taste buds going, we’ve unboxed and tested the new egg-citing Kinder Easter range – all in the name of helping out our fellow parents, of course.
The largest Kinder Easter range ever. From Kinder mini eggs to giant Kinder eggs with super-sized surprises inside, this is the largest ever Easter ranged created by the brand. Please remember that due to small parts, Kinder Surprise eggs and toys are only suitable for ages 3+.
Bigger isn’t always better, but these large and giant Kinder Surprise Easter eggs have the wow factor for our children. This year Kinder has teamed up Minion to deliver a large 100g egg (RRP £6.95), which contains a large toy that has a ‘Minions around the world’ theme. The really big delight this year, though, are the giant Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Powerpuff Girls eggs (RRP £15). At 220g, they are eleven times the size of a normal Kinder Surprise egg and just as yummy.
With each Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles egg, you get either a skateboarding Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello or Michelangelo to build, while the Powerpuff Girl eggs contain either a pen holder, jewellery stand, or a trinket box. Both styles can only be purchased at Ocado and Tesco stores.
Easter wouldn’t be Easter without a family egg hunt. Thankfully, Kinder has kitted us out with everything we need to put one together at home. The Kinder Easter Egg Hunt Kit (RRP £8.60) comes with eight helpful signposts to help guide little ones to their chocolate treasure, with includes 100g of milk chocolate mini eggs, two Kinder Surprise Eggs, and three 15g hollow chocolate characters.
As you might imagine, almost every product in the Kinder Easter range includes a toy. Not all the tots are of the small, plastic variety, however. The Fluffy Friends collection (RRP £7.91) includes a fluffy toy Bunny, a Black Sheep, a White Sheep, and, new for 2019, a cheeky Gorilla! Each toy is lovely and soft and comes with a selection of six scrummy Kinder Chocolate Minis and seven Kinder Chocolate Minis with cereal.
Also hopping onto the supermarket shelves this Easter are the Kinder Surprise Easter Bunny (RRP £2.89) and Easter Chick (RRP £1.80). These fun animals contain a toy to build and around four times the chocolate of a normal Kinder Surprise eggs. A colourful addition to any Easter basket.
With the exception of the giant Kinder Easter eggs (Ocado and Tesco only), all the range can be found at major supermarkets near you.
