It’s that time of year again, and many of us are beginning to think about buying Easter gifts for our friends, children or loved ones. Why not consider celebrating Easter with organic and fairly traded chocolate this year?

Check out some of the goodies available at Natural Collection

Booja Booja Champagne Truffle Easter Egg

Top of the luxury list, for anyone with the money to spare, is the Booja Booja Champagne Truffle Easter Egg. It is handmade with papier mache, painted by artists in Kashmir and contains 12 delectable champagne truffles. Each one a unique piece of art, these dairy and gluten-free eggs are the perfect Easter gift for that special someone.

Divine Dark Chocolate Easter Egg With Chocolate Covered Brazil Nuts

Also very luxurious, but not quite as expensive, is the Divine Dark Chocolate Easter Egg, which comes with Chocolate Covered Brazil Nuts. The chocolate for this fabulous Easter egg comes from cocoa grown by a cooperative of 45,000 farmers in Ghana, meaning that your Easter gift is helping to empower marginalised farmers by giving them a sustainable source of income.

Fairtrade Dubble Easter Egg

This product has become a quick favourite with kids. It is fairly traded, and purchased from a cooperative of farmers whose shares in the company give them a real say in how it is run, and reliable, sustainable source of income.
