We thought that maybe, just maybe, the 2020 chocolate orange hype was done - but we were wrong… 

In what could actually be there best bit of chocolate orange news we’ve had - in a year full of chocolate orange news - Mars has confirmed that it is introducing Maltesers orange flavoured chocolate bunnies. 

The exciting news was first brought to our attention on Instagram by snack gurus, @kevssnackreviews.

However, Maltesers has now confirmed that the latest addition to its range will be launching in time for Easter next year - good things come to those who wait I suppose… 

News of the release comes hot on the heels of another delicious-sounding treat we’ve got to look forward to next Easter as Cadbury has confirmed that it is launching a brand new Mini Eggs bar.

Speaking to Tyla, a spokesperson from Cadbury confirmed the news, saying: “It's true - our iconic Mini Eggs are coming to tablet form this Easter!

"We will be able to share more details on this new treat as well as the rest of our plans for a cracking Easter season very soon - so watch this space."

As you can imagine the good people of social media were pretty bowled over by the news. One person said: “Cadbury making a mini eggs chocolate bar is about the only good thing to come out this year." Another added: "2021 has already peaked.”

AND! Mars is also launching Galaxy orange truffles - which will actually be available this year and promise to be the perfect blend of silky chocolate and zesty orange - all in one big box.

Speaking about the new launches, Kerry Cavanaugh, Marketing Director at Mars Wrigley UK said: "We know that the flavour orange is a distinctly British taste that has seen a huge zesty makeover in recent years.

"While we often see an orange boom during the holiday season, we know that Brits love the flavour all year round, which is why we're ensuring the 'choc-work' continues into the new year and beyond.”
