Cheap post-Easter chocs, eg, 16p Creme Eggs, £1.50 large Mars egg – can you find ’em?
Easter and the four-day weekend is over, but you can cheer yourself up with some cracking deals on Easter chocolate as many retailers have now slashed prices to flog off any unsold Easter stock. The MSE Deals team has spotted 16p Creme Eggs at Lidl, £1.50 large Mars eggs at Asda and more tasty treats.
Stock of these goodies varies per store, but everything we found had best-before dates ranging from June 2019-January 2020, so if you’re not bothered by Easter branding, it might be worth making a trip down to your local supermarket to see what treasures you can find. When it’s gone, it’s gone though, so go quick if you want to stock up.
What we found in stores
It’s worth noting that if our past experience is anything to go by, it’s likely any remaining goods will be reduced even further later this week, though nothing is guaranteed.
