Hop to Frenchgate for an egg-celent Easter.

Don’t panic if you haven’t got all your seasonal goodies just yet as there are lots of stores in Frenchgate filled with all the chocolatey treats and bunny-ears you could want. Let us take you on the perfect Easter hunt around the Centre!

Find the ideal twist on an Easter favourite at the Chuckling Cheese Company. Their Cream Egg artisan fudge bar is handmade and filled with crushed cream eggs to tantalise your tastebuds. Not only do you get to sample their artisan fudge, but you also get a little familiar classic surprise when you bite into one. 

It’s not Easter without a traditional fruity hot cross bun, and if you’re going to treat yourself this year you should make sure you buy one of the best. If you head to Sainsbury’s, you can get your hands on their Taste the Difference Fruity Hot Cross Buns, which are packed with Chilean Flame raisins and Turkish vine fruit which are pre-soaked for extra succulence. Picture your bank holiday morning with a toasted hot cross bun with a cup of tea.

Looking for something a little extra-special as a gift this year? Centre favourite Build-A-Bear Workshop are at hand to help. They have numerous Easter teddies to choose from, but we particularly love the Cool Quills Hedgehog, which would be the perfect cuddly soft toy on an Easter Sunday morning. Of course, as this is Build-A-Bear you can choose to personalise it with whatever accessories you want.

Think you might fancy a sweet Easter treat as you walk around the Centre? We don’t blame you! Among Krispy Kreme’s new Easter collection is the Chocoholic Egg-streme, a tasty Krispy Kreme doughnut dipped in chocolatey icing, topped with chocolate shavings, and frosting with everyone’s favourite chocolate eggs on top. Delicious, make sure to try them before they go!

If you’re looking to add a little Easter sparkle to your bank holiday weekend look, then you should make time to head into Claire’s next time you join us at the Centre. You can’t deny that the cute Hello Kitty dressed as Easter bunny earrings are perfect. Made from sterling silver with enamelled accents, they are a great way to add a bit of seasonal spring fun to your style.

After your busy Easter weekend, we’re sure you will want to find some “me time” and treat yourself to a relaxing bath time. The Flower Bunny treat bag from Lush is an adorable pink bunny bag filled with fresh bath time delights. Inside you’ll find the Follow the White Rabbit bath bomb, reusable Baby Rainbow Carrot bubble bar, Hot Cross Bun bubble bar and citrusy Alien Bunny bath bomb.

We look forward to seeing you in Frenchgate and everyone in the Centre hopes you have a hoppy Easter!
