With Easter just around the corner, it’s no surprise that the supermarket shelves are already filled with Easter egg deals, which are changing weekly!
With the ever-growing list of people to buy for, it can be a costly time for families. We've done our own egg hunt around some of the supermarkets to try and find some deals that could help those pennies go a bit further and keep your Easter less egg-spensive.
Some of the supermarket own brands haven’t been included – however a lot of the supermarkets are definitely upping their game and stocking their own brand chocolate treats this Easter.
Little tip though – the popular eggs will sell out fast – so don’t leave it until the last minute!
Tesco is amongst one of the best supermarkets for value for money this Easter – they're currently offering Cadbury medium sized eggs from only £1 each (Crème Egg, Mini Egg, Caramel…mmmmm). They’re also offering special deals on their Easter eggs for Clubcard holders, so worth checking out if you can grab an extra discount by using this. Asda are also offering 4 for £10 on selected large eggs, Iceland, 2 for £6 and Morrisons 3 for 2 on all their large eggs. So. if you need to stock up on larger quantities for friends and family (or yourself), this will save a few vital pennies.
After something a bit more indulgent? Amazon have a Galaxy Indulgence Luxury extra large egg for only £4! (RRP £7.99) but this will probs sell out super quick, so get those skates on if you want to grab a bargain!
Harry Potter fans are in for a treat this year – Marks & Spencer have THE best gift. It’s not an egg. No, it’s a white chocolate Hedwig the Owl. Not so much a bargain, but an extra splurge at £15, but a bit of fun nevertheless. M&S are also doing a super cute Easter treat bundle for you animal lovers. For £20 you can get a chocolate Walter the sausage dog, Kylie the koala, Alfie bunny and Bella bunny. Now that is seriously cute, right?
If you’re on the lookout for a Vegan & gluten free alternative, Sainsburys have a chocolate egg which is free from wheat, gluten and milk, available for £3.50 – one of the cheapest we’ve been able to find on our travels.
For slightly more (£6), Holland & Barrett have a lovely creamy chocolate egg, with a hint of sweet caramel & sea salt from the vegan and free-from brand, NOMO, so suitable for wheat, dairy, nuts & eggs intolerances too.
Hotel Chocolat & Montezuma’s also have some worthwhile vegan offerings, but, slightly pricier, ranging from £10.00 - £15.00 per egg.
BUT – our biggest tip is, if you’re still needing that sugar fix after the Easter weekend – you’ll probably be able to find some bargains around the aisles the day after when many of the supermarkets will reduce their Easter stock to clear!
So, there we have it – a few tips this Easter to keep your tummies filled with chocolatey loveliness without breaking the bank. #BeInspired with #ThisSOThing.
