The shelves of supermarkets are already crammed with eggs, even though Easter is still 103 days away

The shelves of supermarkets are already crammed with eggs, even though Easter is still 103 days away

Some of us need a vacation from indulging, and Tesco's shelves full with Easter chocolate was a touch too much for some.

Rows and rows of Oreo, Twirl, and Chocolate Orange eggs were found at Llantrisant, South Wales.

There are still 103 days till Easter, which comes on April 17 this year.

Beddau resident Bobby McGrath, 45, said: ‘I've still got my Christmas tree and decorations up so seeing Easter eggs on the shelves surprised me.

‘It's not a tiny selection, there are a lot. It felt like spring, but Christmas was only days ago.

‘It leaves a bad taste, but it only proves that we're all consumers. Who can blame them?

‘But I still believe it's absurd that they're already planning the next celebration four months after the last.'

‘It made me shake my head in bewilderment,' said Talbot Green shopper Lynn Riley, 54. Every year it seems to get sooner.

‘Who buys Easter eggs this early? ‘I just don't get it.'

And Oreo Easter eggs have been sighted at Asda.

B&M now sells Creme Eggs and Mini Eggs.

A Twitter user wrote: ‘Ridiculous* 3rd Jan and Easter Eggs for sale in Tesco.'

‘I observed Easter eggs sold alongside (uncleared) Christmas bonbons at my local store yesterday.'

Is this a pandemic? Before Easter is cancelled!'

‘Our entire range of Easter goodies will be available in a few weeks,' said a Tesco representative.

A small selection of eggs is currently available in several of our stores for clients who prefer to get them early.
