Eggscellent Easter Celebration with Good Food Ireland
Easter means enjoying a bellyful of chocolate. With the serious development and impact of Covid19 across the country and the world, we think treating ourselves to a delicious chocolate Easter egg is just what we need to lift our spirits and remain positive. Covid19 has meant that many businesses have had to close in order to protect customers and staff.
It is now more important than ever to support our local businesses that are still open, whether through online shops or a collection or delivery service. You can do just that this Easter by buying your Easter eggs from our selection of excellent chocolate makers with the Good Food Ireland Collection. Have a read our list below and get cracking (no pun intended) on finding the Easter egg of your dreams...
