Disgusting lack of Easter eggs in shops - not happy

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to dig out some chocolate egg bargains today (I do it every year without fail), and it appears some greedy people wanted to steal all the eggs for themselves. This has never happened before, there is always a surplus just after Easter Sunday, but for the first time probably ever, nowhere has any.


Happy Easter you greedy bunch of chocolate eating pigs, hope it bloody makes you feel sick. I?m having a chilled beer following by a nice cold sauv, maybe I should empty the shelves of alcohol next year.

Hmmm this is interesting though - wheres a super forecaster when you need one - It was obvious demand was higher this year when the Easter Wreaths sold out a few weeks back :)

The fact that they messed up at Christmas (I remember arguing with the manager of DKH about stock levels on Xmas Eve) should have alerted them too. Way back in the 1970s before the excesses of the 1980s (when we just shopped and shopped) I remember painting real eggs for Easter.

Sorry lou

Only just woken from my chocolate coma and saw this


As they say you snooze , you lose


From what I was told, there was supply problems due to covid and demand was high to make up for Christmas


However in the spirit of Easter, I've got a spare creme egg that you can have for the bargain price of ?50

Can anyone think of anything else that could be reshaped and sold at a higher price for less of it? Does the shape of an Easter egg give you a warm glow (or something else) that makes it worth being ripped off in buying one? Or, are we just stupid?
