I had a look in my local tesco, selling a medium Cadburys egg for €.50 at the moment, same egg is £1.50 in the UK.
From looking at what they have in in my local one, they have less eggs out this year than at this time last year

My Tesco did the strangest thing. They bought out a few bits after Christmas. Mini eggs/etc. Followed by all the medium/large eggs a few weeks later.
Then last week they put all the medium/large eggs away again.
RRP is pretty irrelevant, especially on the oddity that is easter eggs. You can see tesco had utterly ludicrous prices just so they can pass the legal limit and now legitimately & legally declare they are reduced by 50 or 80%.
Weight, and therefore price per kilo is what I am interested in, and type of chocolates -e.g. creme eggs are usually expensive per kilo, as are wispa, malteasters etc.
In dealz scanning prices and I would like to see at least 150g per E1.50. If bars are "light" like milky way rolls I might go less.
e.g. tesco were selling 4x52g packs of rolos for 1.50 a while back, I considered that a very good price and would would buy easter eggs if it was close to that price per kilo. Obviously some value them more for the "gift factor" of them.
tesco own brand twix/snickers/mars average 3euro per kilo for comparison.

That's some serious Eastering you're doing there.
Eggs are 5 for €5 at Tesco now!(Well online due to the snow and in store when they reopen)

Jaysus you know that fellas are taking it seriously when you're talking about the price per kilo of chocolate eggs

That's very good. I got buy 2 get 2 free in the UK last week. So it was £3 for 4 eggs - the "medium" ones (medium at 128g or so which is not much over the small ones these days.)
They have this again

Gone back to only 3 for €5 in Dunnes.
its the only way to value them. The marketing people are right scammers these days, toddler size "medium" easter eggs, and multipack bars which would have been called snack size 20 years ago.
full list of tesco eggs here, my tesco had loads.
