This ChristmasWaitrosehas launched a new version of their best selling Easter Egg, theChocolate Avocado.

The Chocolate Avocado has been giving a sparkly seasonal makeover, with a glittery, golden glow this Chritsmas.

TheChocolate Avocadois 100% chocolate, no avocado. The 'flesh' has been created with caramel white chocolate, for a unique, creamy flavour to complement the rich, dark chocolate shell. For the finishing touch, the avocado has been sprinkled with a gorgeous golden shimmer -whats more shell and stone are made using 70% cocoa from carefully selected sources.

Waitrosehave yet to announce a date it'll shelves, but ones thing is for sure, we can't wait to get our hands on one. You can expect it to be available nearer Christmas and will be available from shops and on

We think it beats avocado on toast on Christmas morning.

Product Developer Kate Kind said: "Some people enjoy avocado for breakfast on Christmas morning, but this one is an extra special sweet treat for the big day!

"This year we are predicting grown up confectionery will be a big trend for the festive season so it seemed the perfect time to introduce a new addition to our Christmas selection.

"Our customers love all things avocado, but our Chocolate Avocado proved so popular that we decided to create this special version with added sparkle just for avo-lovers this festive season."


The Chocolate Avocado became the fastest selling own-brand Easter egg ever in 2018 and this Easter, the supermarket saw sales of the playful confection soar even higher, while baby versions of the chocolate avo also became a huge hit.
