As the nation’s love affair with avocados shows no sign of slowing, Waitrose has revealed a new Easter egg for 2018 - a chocolate avocado which looks just like the real thing.

The unique avocado shaped mould has been designed for avo-ficianados to enjoy this Easter.

The shell and stone are Belgian chocolate made with 70% cocoa, while the white chocolate middle uses natural colouring to imitate the green flesh of the fruit.

Despite looking just like a giant avocado, chocoholics can rest-assured that the egg is made using 100% chocolate, with no avocado flavouring – it tastes like chocolate, not avocado.
