Getting ready for Easter? Mummy vlogger Sarah and the twins try out six different Easter eggs under £3 – with some surprising results…
With Easter on the horizon there’s lots to think about and prepare, from the Easter recipes you’ll need to fun and games on the day. So when it comes to picking an Easter egg, it’s a relief to know we have one job that’s pretty straight forward, right… ?
We can’t help but feel more than a little overwhelmed when we visit the Easter egg aisle. There are so many Easter eggs to choose from in the shops, but when you’re on a budget it can be harder to find ones that taste great and the kids will love. If you’re watching the pennies but still want great quality, it can be a bit of a minefield knowing what to choose.
So we asked mummy vlogger and stars of our Kids Kitchen series Sarah and the twins to make it easy for you by tasting testing six well-known Easter eggs under £3. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it…
1. Tesco Milk Chocolate Egg With Chocolate Buttons, £1
This Tesco egg is the cheapest of the bunch and for its size, it’s fab value for money, as well as being really nice chocolate! ‘The Tesco £1 egg was actually really good,’ says Sarah. ‘If you’re on a budget, the Tesco £1 egg is a brilliant buy.’ It’s super cheap but also really tasty, so you can’t go wrong!
2. Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Buttons egg, £1.50
This egg was Geaorge’s favourite in the taste test and at £1.50 for a big egg, it’s a real steal. This is a really good choice if you’re buying for kids! ‘I can’t keep George away from it,’ says Sarah. ‘A kids’ favourite there.’
3. Thorntons Harry Hopalot egg, £3
This lovely little egg has got a white chocolate bunny on it, which looks adorable and will go down well with kids. ‘I LIKE white chocolate!’ confirms George. Sold!
4. Aldi Moser Roth Luxury Milk Chocolate egg, £3
Although this doesn’t look like a kids’ egg, Sarah HAD to include it in the taste test because ‘George fell in love with this one because it’s got squiggly chocolate all over it’ – but they loved the chocolate too. ‘It’s actually really tasty and if you’re buying for adults, this is a really good buy,’ says Sarah.
5. Aldi Easter Egg with chocolates inside, £2.99
Sarah loves the packaging of this Aldi egg, but the chocolate didn’t compare with the rest. ‘It looks amazing, but tastes a little bit disappointing – sorry Aldi!’ says Sarah.
6. M&S chocolate bunny, £3
At £3, this little bunny isn’t cheap, but Harriet loved this one. It’s one of the few Easter chocolates you can find for £3 in M&S, but worth it. ‘Harriet’s obviously got expensive tastes,’ says Sarah.
