Lir has launched an egg-cellent new Easter egg range and yeah, we need them all.

The Irish chocolatier's latest collection includes something for everyone's chocolate tastes - and are just what we need this Easter.

The new range includes the eye-catching Octagonal Egg, which is available in Lir’s Belgian Milk Chocolate or single origin Dark Chocolate varieties. And if that wasn't good enough, both of Lir's Octagonal Eggs are beautifully packaged with a selection of mouth-watering Salted Caramel Truffles (RRP €10).

Lir’s Crispy Caramel Egg, which was a huge hit in previous years, is back for Easter 2020 - and combines delicious milk chocolate with gorgeous touches of crispy caramel together for a really sweet treat. Much like the Octagonal Egg, it is also presented with a selection of Lir’s much-loved, Salted Caramel Truffles (RRP €8).

White chocolate lovers will also be delighted to indulge in Lir’s premium White Chocolate Egg, packaged with Lir’s classic Praline Truffles.  It is described as "an unapologetically sweet Easter egg, which will certainly hit the right notes this Easter."

As a result of the current Corona Virus crisis, the Lir team have decided to deliver chocolates and Easter Eggs to frontline staff and the elderly, as a small gesture of gratitude and kindness.

“In uncertain and difficult times we’re happy that we can play a small part in showing some generosity and care for people who now need it most. More than ever, we need to support each other and we’ve been delighted that these small chocolate gifts have been received as an acknowledgement of the hard-work and dedication of so many front line staff," Ann Murray, Managing Director, Lir said.

"We are also trying to bring some happiness to older people who have been isolated through this crisis in our nursing and care homes by remembering them at Easter with our eggs. We would encourage everyone to buy local and to support Irish jobs whenever possible. We wish everyone a safe and happy Easter!”

The Lir Easter Egg range is available from selected Tesco, Supervalu and Centra stores nationwide.  You can also shop for Lir Chocolates online at www.lirchocolates.com.
