Danielle Height's cream eggBy Barbi Lazarus, Donor and Volunteer Resources Coordinator

Easter is almost upon us. For many years vegans have subsisted on whatever dark chocolate they could get their hands on in place of traditional giant, hollowed out chocolate bunnies or ooey gooey cream eggs. But, things have changed a lot these past few years. You know the explosion of vegan food options has hit a tipping point when there are so many places to get vegan poutine, vegan mac and cheese and vegan pizza that BLOG TO publishes articles naming the top five for all of them.

Enter: the vegan cream egg. Now available in so many places it will likely be difficult for you try them all this season. Here are the ones we’ve heard of so far, in alphabetical order. If you know of more, don’t hesitate to share!
