Cheap Easter egg beats off luxury competition

28 February 2013

Easter is approaching and, of course, Jesus wants us all to gorge on enough chocolate to give us all Diabetes. And if you want the best Easter egg money can buy, then you may be surprised to learn that it'll only cost you £5 from Tesco.

[INSERT HORSE JOKE HERE]

In a test involving 192 chocolate eggs, the 300g Chokablok American Dreamcake came out on top, ahead of other preposterous Easter eggs that would set you back nearly £100. So, this fiver delight lands the crown of Good Housekeeping Easter Egg of the Year!

Elsewhere, Marks & Spencer's Colin the Caterpillar (245g, £6) came in third, just behind an egg that costs £20, just ahead of their '5 Selection Topped Eggs' (five Easter eggs for a tenner).

For those determined to show off, The Hotel Chocolat 'Half and Half Ostrich Egg' which weighs a kilogram and costs £70 also finished in the top ten.

Good Housekeeping consumer director Caroline Bloor said: "We've really noticed how Easter eggs, even at the cheaper end of the market, have become far more eye-catching and imaginative over the last couple of years. But at the end of the day, behind the fancy designs, you are as likely to find a delicious chocolatey treat in the supermarket as you are in the luxury shops."

"In our tests, cheaper chocolate eggs continue to beat the opposition."

So there you have it. If someone buys you an expensive Easter egg, half-chew it up and spit it back in their stupid, showy faces.

    I would have inserted the horse joke here ... “In our tests, cheaper chocolate eggs continue to beat the opposition by a nose. Neigh.”
