7 Easter-themed treats available in Hong Kong you'll want to munch on this weekend

If your sweet tooth is as strong as ours, you’re probably looking forward to enjoying some chocolatey treats this Easter

Easter can mean a lot of things to different people, but we can all probably agree that it wouldn’t be the same without getting to unwrap a shiny chocolate Easter egg or bunny. To celebrate, the Young Post team tried seven Easter-themed treats that you can buy in Hong Kong.


MaltEaster mini bunnies and milk chocolate egg

"Shockingly, these taste like Malteasers."
Edmund Ho

"I think they’re better than normal Malteasers because they have a better chocolate-to-malt ratio. But they don’t have the “crunch” of a normal malteaser."
Charlotte Ames-Ettridge

"I like how they’re bigger than normal, it allows you to take nice big bites!"
Wong Tsui-Kai

Verdict:

Malteasers are tough to beat, but the MaltEaster bunnies are even better than the originals.


Marks & Spencer Mixed up Bunnies (gummies)

"I don’t normally like candies or gummies, but these are excellent. The texture is unreal."
Ben Young

"It’s really “gummy”, you know what I mean? It’s less rubbery than a normal gummy sweet."
Charlotte Ames-Ettridge

"I am picky about my gummies, but these are great."
Alejo Lo

"In Britain, this is what we would call an “authentic” gummy snack."
Edmund Ho

Verdict:

Whether you pick the coke-flavoured bunnies or the fruity colourful ones, these gummy bunnies are delicious.


What chocolate treat would you invent?


Marks & Spencer Spiced Easter Biscuits

"These taste like gingerbread men on steroids ... of excellence."
Ben Young

"Normally I don’t like fruit in my biscuits but these are nice ... gives them a little bit of extra “chew."
Wong Tsui-Kai

"These are really good and remind me of biscuits back in Britain."
Charlotte Ames-Ettridge

Verdict:

These beautiful biscuits are both delicious and festive.


Lindt Poussin Easter ducks/chickens

"It’s just like the regular Lindt chocolate we all know and love."
Charlotte Ames-Ettridge

"You’re definitely getting your money’s worth with these."
Wong Tsui-Kai

"It tastes like normal Lindt chocolate, but in chicken form."
Ben Young

Verdict: 

These birds taste like normal Lindt chocolate, which means they are really delicious.


10 amazingly Instagram-worthy dishes in Hong Kong and where to find them


Chocohouse chocolate bunny lollies

"Why would you ever have chocolate in lollipop form?"
Alejo Lo

"I actually prefer these to regular lollies – you can actually lick the chocolate, eat it slower and let it melt in your mouth."
Ben Young

"I love how there’s a lolly stick, it makes it waaay better!"
Charlotte Ames-Ettridge

Verdict:

Chocolate lollies are a nice touch, and an improvement over regular lollies and regular chocolate.


Minion Marshmallows

"These are everything I love: marshmallow, chocolate and minions."
Alejo Lo

"These taste like the candies your relatives used to give you that were already past their sell-by date."
Edmund Ho

"I’m not crazy about the texture, but the packaging is fun."
Ben Young

Verdict: 

These aren’t to everyone’s tastes, but they would make nice snacks to share at school.

Cadbury Easter egg with mini oreos

"I can already tell you what this will taste like: Cadbury, the best chocolate on Earth, and Oreos, one of the best cookie snacks on Earth."
Charlotte Ames-Ettridge

"I feel like there is a serious design flaw; why aren’t the mini Oreos inside the egg?"
Wong Tsui-Kai

"Despite Cadbury’s chocolate dominance, I feel like the fact that the Oreos didn’t come inside the egg was a serious cop-out."
Edmund Ho

Verdict: 

Two delicious items, a Cadbury chocolate egg and mini Oreo treats, that seem to have nothing to do with each other.
