A vegan crème egg is launching in Holland & Barrett stores across the country – as predicted by Vegan Food UK.

Vegan Food UK is an online organization sharing vegan food news, reviews, vlogs, and more. It operates across multiple social media platforms, with a Facebook group, Facebook page, YouTube channel, and Instagram account.

Earlier this week, the group posted on Instagram, saying its ‘sources had told us that Holland & Barret will be launching their very own Vegan Crème Eggs’.

Now the news has been confirmed: independent vegan brand Mummy Meagz is launching its chocolate treat – called ‘The Chuckie Egg’ – in the high street health food store from January 22.

Like Cadbury’s original option, The Chuckie Egg features a chocolate egg-shaped shell filled with white and yellow fondant. It is free from palm oil and genetically modified ingredients.

‘Delight chocolate lovers’

“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,” said Mummy Meagz founder Meagan Boyle.

“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.

“The eggs have grown a huge following simply from being sold in my shop, and I know they’ll become the next big vegan craze for Easter!”

The Chuckie Egg will retail for 99p.
