Easter eggs £££££££

    Weirdly never really considered the cost of these but, by 'eck, aren't they dear? Three for £10 at Tesco. That's STILL a tenner on a load of awful packaging and not much else.

    Thank you-
    I will take any chance to post how much I really hate packaging. Not just the waste, but the in your face shameless promotion. And often the "kid appeal".
    Here, a recent Which report on Easter Egg packaging.

    (If you don't fancy looking at it, the worst culprit in their study, fyi, is Thorntons)

    If we do gifting at Easter we never get shop bought chocolate eggs, we make up some sort of decorative basket or functional box of stuff-you can make something so much nicer for the same cost and substantially less waste.

    Hate waste.

    Save money with a flat pack Scandinavian bunny.

    Some assembly required.

    Give the kids boiled eggs and tell them Extinction Rebellion refused to let you near the Easter egg aisle in Tesco's due to the packaging.

    And a lot of plastic packaging. I found one in tesco without plastic packaging, I think it was greens and blacks and was £5 so I was pleased with that.

    Just bought three for ten quid in Morrinsons, I guess they are all copying one another. Dear, but traditional innit?

    I’ll be just as happy with a hot cross bun and jam.

    I love chocolate but I avoid Easter eggs due to weight. My rules are quality, weight and then price. The ideal would be proper blocks of chocolate. Does anyone do a big block like a pack of butter? Not cooking chocolate but something you could saw slices off.

    Nooooooooo!!!Here's a can of worms. It is, in my most humble of opinions, not even wrong to put jam on a hot cross bun. Just putting it out there.

    It’s a good job we are all different or the world would be a very boring place!

    Absolutely! And put very diplomatically!;)

    Don't particularly like hot cross buns. Doughey, not enough fruit, made down to a price, and never toast right. Stick 'em. I associate them with interminable religious services too. It just cannot be right to go to church so bleeding often in a week!

    If I had to choose an egg for myself I think I’d go for peanut M and Ms!

    Never seen a Toblerone egg. I'd like a Toblerone egg.

    Better value to get 10 x £1 small Easter eggs. The 'large' eggs are not much bigger.

    Wait until next Monday/Tuesday and stock up with all the reductions :D

    They never do that though!

    They do get reduced...been taking advantage of it for years :D

    And there are Toblerone eggs (or at least there were at some point).

    It is not exactly egg-shaped!

    For some reason my mother gave me one.

    We passed it to daughter's BF as his egg. Recycling innit.
