Easter treat ideas from local UK businesses

To help make your Easter extra special this year, we’ve put together a list of 5 tasty Easter treats from small UK businesses. These fantastic companies from across the country have grown and flourished, thanks to your support.

5. Planning an Easter egg hunt?

Beech’s Fine Chocolates has you covered with delicious Milk Chocolate Mini Eggs. Or grab the Milk Chocolate Bunny Family so you can enjoy with the entire household. The company, who borrowed £250,000 in January 2016 to keep up with high demand, are expecting a visit from us next week – so keep an eye out for a video on blog soon. They’ve also been included in a BBC programme called ‘Who’s the Boss.’

4. Can’t decide on just one goody?

Pick up an Easter Hamper from D&D for a selection of delicious chocolates. The chocolatiers, who borrowed over £11,000 from 1,256 investors in 2014, also make a wide variety of carob sweets, a healthy chocolate alternative, and used the loan to purchase a larger fridge to cope with the high interest in these scrumptious goods.

With a choice of white or milk chocolate, these handmade chocolate Rabbit Lollies from Choc Affair are the perfect treat for kids (or adults). Choc Affair, who came to Funding Circle back in July 2013, also supply a range of unique flavoured chocolate bars such as Lime & Lavender, Raspberry & Rose, Lime & Sea Salt and Orange & Geranium. Divine!

2. Do you love organic and fairtrade sweets?

If you do, Luxury Truffles from Naturally Good Food are a must try for you! The truffles are hand-rolled, dipped and tumbled in milk chocolate flakes and finished with a delectable champagne centre. They also stock an organic and gluten free Cheeky Orange Bar which is suitable for vegans.

1. A unique spin on the classic Easter egg.

And our number 1 Easter goody is the Milk Chocolate Easter Egg from Hamilton’s Chocolates. Handmade with heavenly chocolate, they are guaranteed not to disappoint! In February 2014, Hamilton’s Chocolates used their business loan to purchase additional equipment so they could create different types of tempting goodies.
