One sweet treat Easter brings is Chocolate Easter eggs, with different flavours, shapes and designs.
However, the UK is currently under lockdown amid the spread of coronavirus.
This means Britons are only allowed to leave home to get essential shopping, attend key jobs or for one form of exercise per day.
So nipping out to buy Chocolate Easter eggs is not considered an essential. But there may be options for those looking to get Easter eggs.
