Sad to say since Kraft ruined Cadbury's I'll be ignoring all of those and heading straight for the Rowntree's and Mars ones.

Cold. I only want XXXL eggs. Will wait till these bad boys are reduced.

Is it just me who thinks even at the reduced price that isn't exactly a cheap way to buy chocolate? I mean you can often get 2x branded 200g chocolate bars for £3, or even less. Peanut M&Ms have the large bags which are I think about 160g, those are often on offer for £1.50 and quite often for only £1. Also, 364g is hardly giant in my eyes, large maybe but giant would be double that size.

Don't get me wrong, these discount offer prices appear reasonable for the eggs, just not cheap. Can't bring myself to vote either way on this.

Can you think of a way to get cheaper Easter eggs, this size and these brands? Not other chocolate...eggs. If yes, vote cold. If no, vote hot. Pretty easy.

Does this mean that the large ones that were reduced to £1.50 will be back up to £3 from tomorrow.

i'd rather buy 3 packs of 4x42g galaxy bars for a £1 each or the 390g bar for £2.29 ! might not get an egg but it's more chocolate for the money. therefore this is still cold. cheers.

Apart from the fact that on that logic, Hovis bread at £1 in Asda would be hot if every supermarket in the country was charging £1 and nobody was cheaper, when clearly all that makes it is luke warm since it is not overpriced nor a 'hot deal'...

Yes, buy quality chocolate and melt it down to make your own eggs, plenty of guides online, then fill with whatever you want. Same brand chocolate and potentially larger size. Actually do a massive kinder surprise type egg with a gift inside but using better chocolate than kinder, now that is an idea I might try this year. Using galaxy to make a large egg and put a gift inside....

Before anyone adds, I am aware that electric or gas to melt the chocolate is not free, but really the temperatures required to do this would use so little energy and for such a short time I can't imagine the impact to be significant.

Sorry but my view is that if it were any more expensive you would be over-paying for the shape, at this price it is getting nearer the price of the same chocolate in a traditional bar or pack form, but not there yet, you are still paying a premium for the shape, albeit a more reasonable premium.

If you are buying for children then yes I see the reasoning to buying pre-packed Easter eggs for the shape, having said that, why would you buy over 300g of chocolate in a single pack for children? Multiple smaller eggs makes more sense.

Large ones will be full price again from tomorrow and xxl ones on offer I'm waiting for the £10 ones to go half price hopefully next week

You do know Easter eggs aren't just about the chocolate right?!

That's like saying "I'll buy this gold nugget rather than this gold necklace because even though they weigh the same, the gold nugget is cheaper."

Going on weight the large eggs on offer for £1.50 are better value as they were around 270g in weight. These contain 20% more chocolate but double the price......

The average person is not going to take the time out to make their own Easter eggs. The whole point is you are paying for the shape and for it to be pre-made. Same with most things! Same with a pre-made shop bought pizza. Honestly, this is getting ridiculous. People voting cold because you would pay a little less for the same amount of something, when the whole point of the product is the novelty of it.

That certainly sounds far better.



I already said I can't vote hot or cold as it is a lukewarm deal in my view.

As my parents would say "it all ends up the same shape at the end of the day".

I noticed that too, my daughters are getting the £1.50 and I'll pop some cash in with them and Dh can have the £3

Damn, just had a load of the L ones delivered, should have waited for these.

Typical phone call -

Dick - Hi this is Dick from Cadbury. We have easter eggs that we would like you to sell for the rrp of £3. It only costs us 26p to make and package them after all.

Dom - Hi Dick from Cadbury, this is Dom from Tesco. How about we stick them up for £6, charge a few people that price and then knock them down to £3 and make everyone think theyre getting an amazing deal?

Dick - Great thinking Dom

Dom - Cheers Dick

Whats the link for the L size for £1.50? thanks

Ha, I'm going to scupper you both by biding my time & getting them for 1p :p:

TESCO - All Easter Eggs reduced to 1p - starts tomorrow

Eggs this year are the worst ever, Nestle are charging in asda for a Nestle Crunch Egg £2.00 and you get just the egg!! no bars or anything inside and its packaged in massive packaging.. the last few years its become so ridiculous.

Hmm, so the packaging's where all the money's going oO! If you take it out of the packaging they should sell it to you for 50p

Poor value compared to the 4 medium size eggs for £3 Tesco were doing recently.
Got over 650g for £3 which makes this deal look rubbish!

I've just seen some of these eggs in my local Sainsbury's priced at £8 each, Now that makes this deal look good.

People make me so cross on here sometimes, yes, there are cheaper ways to buy chocolate. But that's not what this site is all about, it's about deals. At Easter, people want EASTER EGGS as a rule. Buying chocolate and making your own isn't an option for people because a. they don't have time, b. they can't be bothered and c. using chocolate moulds takes a degree of skill. If you worked out what your hourly rate is for a reasonable salary, the cost of the chocolate, moulds you would quickly find it's NOT CHEAPER! I speak as someone who makes truffles and fudge for people as gifts. It would be cheaper for me to buy it, but I enjoy the process so that makes it worth it.

I agree, this is the worst of the 3 recent deals on easter eggs at tesco based on value for money. And this is the only deal that cannot break £5 per kilo of chocolate...

Now that the b2g2f deal is over, I would buy the large eggs at £1.50 before it expires, with a number of eggs in the range being above 300g each.
