For Easter this year, Waitrose is offering an alternative way for consumers to celebrate the holiday and still satisfy their sweet tooth.
The Waitrose Dark Chocolate Avocado Easter Egg features a Belgian chocolate shell and a cocoa-dusted dark chocolate pit. To achieve the green shade of the confection, Waitrose opted to alter a white chocolate with natural coloring. Although the unique Easter treat is entirely avocado-like in appearance, it does not feature any avocado flavoring whatsoever.
The quirky, Millennial-targeted chocolate Easter egg is a novelty product that has the potential to appeal to those who do not celebrate the occasion. Like Waitrose, a number of food brands are defying convention with the launch of Easter eggs that feature solid chocolate or only cheese.
