Easter Egg Deals

Okay, I know it's a bit early but Easter Eggs are on sale already!

I picked up 3 small sized Cadburys Easter Eggs in Centra Shandon Street Cork for 5 euro.

The non deal price is €3 each.

The Cream egg one came with one cream egg for instance.

The deal wasnt advertised in store but the kind lady at the til scanned the egg at the til 3 times to see if there was a deal and bobs your uncle.

Yes. Super-Valu have all medium Cadburys/Nestle/Mars eggs 3 for €5 until Eater Saturday. Often gets reduced to €4.50.
They generally go 5 for €5 in Tesco for a few days.

Easter Eggs - 4 for €4

Dunnes Stores selling 4 Easter Eggs for €4. With €5 off over €25 too - get 25 eggs for €20. Can't imagine these will get any cheaper. Offer ends 11th March.

They were called medium last year, the small ones are tiny. I do not like the name change but best to stick with it but maybe point out weights if known

A "medium" last year tended to be 1 single full size bar and a 100g egg. This is like getting 1 bar and 2 dairy milk bars. A retail dairy milk bar is showing as 53g on tesco.

I see new "medium" eggs this year, and weights can be seen on tesco

https://www.tesco.ie/groceries/produ...20easter%20egg

The freddo egg is only 122g in total. So looks like a 100g egg and a mere 22g of "freddo faces"

A creme egg is 138g, 100g and the creme egg is standard 38g.

Mars is 141g so likely a 100g and not full retail bar, but multipack size.

Or a variety of eggs for your own kids, as these offers tend to be cheaper per kilo than bigger eggs. And kids might prefer a load of different eggs.

I will get our small fella one big egg with a mug or something and take him to smyths instead, I bought a few small ones last year and they were knocking around the house for ages
