Easter 2014 is later than the years gone by (Easter Sunday is on 20 April), so you've got a little extra time to go shopping for chocolate Easter eggs. Result!

We've pulled together our pick of the best eggs available to buy this year from the super luxe Charbonnel et Walker to the totally affordable offerings at The Co-Operative.

With Easter just around the corner, it's time to consume more chocolate than you do at Christmas and your birthday put together. Even if you reckon you're too old for Easter eggs, we're here to tell you that you're not, you hear!?

Take a look through the gallery below and check out which eggs to buy for all the family and all your friends (or the ones to keep for yourself) no matter what your budget.

It seems 2014 is the year for new trends as far as chocolaty Easter eggs are concerned. So here's what should you be on the look out for this year if you're out to impress your pals with your knowledge of edible coco-based shells...

1. Squeegs are actual things. Squegg: fun to say and delicious to eat. This year your favourite high street chocolatier Thortons has crafted a range of squashed eggs... Instead of the usual hollow number, 2014 is all about eating straight up flat chocolate in the shape of an egg.

2. Raw chocolate is good. Healthy folk don't have to go live in a cave with no contact from the outside world during Easter anymore.

3. Chocolate is made a gazillion times better with popcorn. Thanks to The Co-Operative you no longer have to chow down on boring snoring plain ol' chocolate... See slide two for deets!
