Some four years ago I had a look at an Doctor Who Easter egg with a mug and have been looking for one ever since for one out in the supermarkets. Alas it’s come to nothing and all I can find is a Dr Who mug with eight chocolate bars that I bought from Tesco for ¬£3. So is this good value for money?
The egg itself is 100g and those eight bars are another 100g and whilst the chocolate is perfectly fine as its produced by Bon Bon Buddies from some un-named source I’m leaning towards the ‘not so good value for money’ camp. I know it’s got the requisite picture of the eleventh Doctor: Matt Smith on the reverse, alongside ten questions that all supreme Dr Who aficionados should know as well as a pair of Daleks on the front, I’m just struggling to find what you would pay ¬£3 for. If it had a mug then fair enough, but eight chocolate bars with a “chocolate filling” which tastes somewhere between rank and “you are kidding me”, certainly make me wish I kept my money firmly in my pocket.
The thing with children is that logic flies out the window at these religious celebrations where chocolate and toys are involved. ¬£3 may not be a lot of money for most of us, but those on a tight budget may think they were slightly hard done by – even a toy would have been good.
Those four years have been filled with “I wonder what a Dr Who Easter egg tastes like” – a question I should have never asked. If you’re in Tesco and you consider buying your child this one, then just have a look at the million Easter eggs they’ve got – and they have plenty.
Overall I’ll give this Egg a “below average”. But what do I know, you Dr Who fans will love them, and that’s all that matters!
