​Shoppers Baffled As Easter Eggs Seen In Supermarkets Just Days After Christmas

We've barely even wiped the cranberry sauce from our mouths, but it seems it's time to say goodbye to Christmas to move onto the next one, as there's already a bounty of Easter goodies on supermarket shelves.

I know, I'm pretty sure my uncle is even still wearing his paper hat from the cracker.

Shoppers have been sharing their horror after spotting Easter eggs and chocolates on display in various supermarkets across the UK.

Mind you, some supermarkets are unashamed about their excitement for Easter, and all the chocolate that comes with it.

Responding to one customer on Twitter, a social media worker for Sainbury's called 'Adam' tweeted: "It's never too early for an Easter egg!"

I mean, he's got a point.

Many people, however, are pointing out that it's not even been New Year's Eve yet, and already we're thinking about what we're eating on Sunday 12 April and during the lead-up to it.

What's more, as one Twitter user pointed out, there's still Christmas chocolate in stores AND it's all reduced right now, so surely you'd be better off snapping all that up instead?

"Still reductions on Christmas and already we have Easter eggs in!" the bemused shopper tweeted.

Currently the Christmas chocolates and sweets in Tesco are being flogged off for mere pennies - including tubes of Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles, Smarties and Milkybar Buttons, which have been spotted at the slashed price of 25p.

As for the more high-end confectionery on sale, if you have a craving for a box of Galaxy or Malteser Truffles, they're now at just £1.75, saving you about £3.25.

Swizzels tubs containing all sorts of sugary sweetie favourites are now a quid cheaper than before at £2.

Hell, if you're really looking to spoil yourself - or pretend to be the ambassador of a country - you can pick up a tray of Ferrero Rocher for £3, down from £10.

The offers only applies to those willing to actually go into the shops and isn't available online, so if you're keen, you'd better peel yourself off that sofa and get your coat on.
