Vegans can look forward to a chocolate treat this Easter, with one high street chain announcing the launch of a new vegan creme egg.

Dubbed The Chuckie Egg, the new product by independent vegan brand Mummy Meagz will be available to buy at Holland & Barrett stores across the UK from 22 January.

Much like the original version from Cadbury’s, The Chuckie Egg features a dark chocolate egg-shaped shell filled with white and yellow fondant.

The makers say it is free from palm oil and genetically modified ingredients and will retail for around 99p.

Mummy Meagz founder Meagan Boyle, who previously sold the eggs in her Yorkshire coffee shop before scaling up, said: “In a world full of inequalities, I believe that nobody’s sweet tooth should have to suffer due to dietary and lifestyle choices, or food allergies.

“That’s why I made the Chuckie Egg. Its gooey centre will delight lovers of crème eggs, including those who choose vegan products for the environment and animals, and those who avoid dairy for health.”
