I'm going back to Sweden over easter an want to bring some delicious treats for my nephew, showing him how much nicer my animal-friendly candy is compared to the rest. So what's your best tips on easter candy that I can get in London or Brighton, and what shops to go to?

Montezuma in Brighton, I believe, have vegan Easter eggs. Oxfam charity shops usually have Divine vegan eggs, too, but they aren't the best quality (well, compared to Montezuma and Booja-Booja). There's always Infinity Foods, which usually has a good selection of organic things.

Booja-Booja is an all-vegan chocolate company that are really good and have little carved wooden eggs with deliciousness inside and can usually be found in (independent?) health food shops. I know Lansdown Health Foods in Lewes sell them, if you want a little trip to my home town (which is 15 minutes from Brighton by train). I usually got my Easter things there, when I lived in Sussex.

You can get the Moo Free Easter egg in some branches of Waitrose & in Infinity Foods. They'll have a stall at Brighton Veg Fest this weekend too. Moo Free also make a chocolate bunny which they have at Infinity, you should be able to get them at Veg Fest too.

Ms Cupcake is also selling vegan cream eggs.

The Booja Booja painted egg filled with truffles is both beautiful & delicious.

In Infinity Foods there are dark chocolate eggs filled with praline, I can't remember who makes them but they look delicious.

It looks like Montezumas have their dark chocolate mini eggs with almond praline again this year. They're seriously the best ever! Thy have shops in Brighton & London (Spitalfields).

If your nephew is a littley, the Moo Free is probably the best option, as the rest are mostly dark chocolate, and are more suitable for grown up tastes.

You'll be able to get Lindt bunnies in most big supermarkets, the dark choc ones I've seen this year seem to be vegan! But perhaps you can buy those in Sweden anyway. Moo Free is definitely the way to go for 'kid friendly' chocolate!
