2013 Update: Normally Tescos are quick at getting their Easter products on their shelves, but this year they were incredibly slow. They left the remnants of their Christmas stock out for at least a month into the new year and did the same with their other seasonal stuff too. But now they’ve started to get all of their Easter eggs and treats available in store. It does seem, however, that most of the deals seem to be online as they fight tooth and nail for your custom. Out of 240 Easter products available online, 117 are part of special offers and 38 are classed as new. Most just seem to be re-hashes of previous eggs such as the Giant After Eight egg or the large Kit Kat one. If you want to buy your Easter eggs for as cheap as possible then you should at either Tesco or Asda – who from my research tend to have the better deals.
They’ve added loads of non Easter-stuff into their seasonal chocolate category, but here’s what I’ve found so far:
March 2013 Offers:
2012 Update - (12th Feb) On my recent trip to Tesco’s they didn’t have too any of the medium sized eggs in store as they seemed to focus more on the grab bags and the smaller Easter treats such as the Thornton’s lollipops and the filled mini eggs. They do, however, have a fairly decent selection online – most with offers on.
Also, a word of warning, I ordered some Easter eggs online and the packaging came a touch damaged. You might like to bear that in mind if you also consider buying them online.
2011 Update – It seems they’re slower off the mark this year to get their full range of Easter eggs on the shelves. They have, just like Asda got the usual Nestle Easter eggs on the shelves in the form of Smarties, Milky Way and Maltesers which can be bought for 3 for £3 (Asda is 3 for £4) where both sell them for £2 each.
Tesco also have their micro sugar coated eggs in stock plus the naff Toy Story Easter eggs from Kinnerton as well as a strange looking Haribo Easter egg for £4.
2010 Update – Their Finest Easter eggs are actually fantastic this year so give them a go if you’re buying online or in store. But if you wanted a great bargain on Easter eggs for kids then I suggest you visit Cadbury Gifts Direct who offer some great bargains on Cadbury Chocolate Hampers with a special Easter theme.
Currently Tesco are doing a variety of Easter egg and chocolate bargains:
2 for £3.00 on Cadbury Mini Egg Easter Cakes.2 for £2 on a variety of Nestlé Easter eggs such as the Smarties Easter egg, Milky Way Easter Eggs, the Maltesers Easter egg, plus the Toy Story Easter egg. They’ve also got the Lira Fair Trade Easter egg for £4.99 which looks interesting. You can also get the Baileys Easter egg which was disappointing.
Tesco may not be flavour of the month because of their attitude to battery hens but they do have chocolate Easter eggs that I think are created in a more acceptable manner.
Here’s what they currently have:
I’ve just been to Tesco’s and found they’ve got these Kinnerton Easter Eggs:
