Manchester’s go-to fried chicken shop Yard and Coop has gone all-out for Easter this year, serving up deep-fried dippy chocolate eggs with churros for soldiers as part of its Easter menu.

After fans went wild for its deep-fried Creme Eggs last year, the Edge Street favourite has one-upped itself again for 2023 by releasing a whole array of battered chocolate goodies.

Ranging from the Cadbury’s classic to Reese’s, Hershey’s, and Lindor Salted Caramel varieties, customers can order these naughty treats inside Yard and Coop’s Northern Quarter restaurant all Easter week long.

Taking their eggs and soldiers game to the next level, each egg is dipped in tempura batter before being deep fried until crisp, then served with churros soldiers ready to be slam dunked into a waiting hot, gooey chocolate middle.

Priced at £5 each, customers are invited to the chocolate egg of their choice – with dunkable fillings ranging from Reese’s peanut butter to Lindor’s salted caramel, Hershey’s cookies and creme, or the well-known Cadbury ‘egg’ fondant classic.

Launched on Monday 3 April, the deep-fried ‘dippy eggs’ are available at Yard and Coop up until Easter Sunday itself which falls this year on 9 April.


First launched by twp friends united by their love of fried chicken back in 2015, Yard and Coop has been a mainstay in the Northern Quarter for the past eight years.

A go-to for all things fried chicken, not to mention saucy wings, sticky nugz, cocktails, beers and other bites, other menu must-tries include the epic Massive C*ck burger.

A mixture of Buttermilk fried chicken thighs, not nugz, bacon, cheese sauce, handmade waffle, onion rings, creamy slaw and a mac n’ cheese filled Yorkshire pudding with lashings of Dr Pepper BBQ, Ranch, and Sriracha mayo), it’s then finished off with three BBQ wings – with owners instructing you to ‘bring your tape measure’ because ‘size matters’.
