Wilko Is Doing Half Price Pick And Mix Again
For most of us, pick and mix is a rare treat, reserved for only the most special of occasions when we feel like truly pushing the boat out. That's because - for the most part - it's extortionate.
Step forward, Wilko. The lovely folks at the UK homeware chain have given us a little Easter treat with a discount of up to half price on pick and mix until 22 April.
Their medium cups will only cost you £2 instead of £3. The extra large - which Wilko is trying to tell us is for sharing, though we all know that's not going to happen - is £3.
The regular cup is usually £2 so that one is looking like the best value, with 50 percent off the original price.
The offer isn't available on weighed bags and treat cups, and obviously, is only available in store.
It was first spotted by Hot UK Deals, who confirmed the good news on Facebook.
Some eagle-eyed bargain hunters have done a bit of digging and have found a way to save you even more money on the treats. As one user on the bargain site pointed out - two regular cups hold the same amount as one share cup, while a 'share cup' costs £3 but two regular cups come to £2.
So whether you prefer your old school penny sweets like fizzy cola bottles and fried eggs, or you're into filling those gaps with Millions and Rainbow Drops to cash in on the space you've got to play with, it's a massive money saver.
Those trips to the cinema will also be a whole lot cheaper - just make sure you don't get caught when you're sneaking them in, because we all know that is completely illegal.
If your sweet tooth still isn't satisfied, you'll be pleased to hear my other piece of related news - a shop is opening up that sells exclusively Haribo.
The store will open at Cheshire Oaks in the north west on 16 April, and sells the famous sweets as well as merchandise.
If you can't wait for it to open or don't live anywhere near it, why not take a trip to London or York? You'll be in for a treat, as Haribo has a shop in each of those cities too.
The shops are all complete with a special pick and mix area - but unless it's a VERY special occasion, you're probably best off sticking to Wilko.
