Tesco’s Easter Egg beating the best


A £10 Easter Egg is making news with its taste. According to chocolate experts this £10 Easter Egg from supermarket Tesco beats many expensive, high end rivals by a long way, thanks to it “truly indulgent” characteristics. Experts at the Good Housekeeping institute declared the Tesco Easter Egg as the winner after testing as many as 100 Easter Eggs, most of which came from high-end, expensive brands.

The Ester Egg, selling for just a tenner is packed full of honeycomb, chocolate coated shortcake and caramel fudge pieces. Tesco’s Billionaire’s Dynamite Easter Egg scored an impressive 85 out of 100 in the Good Housekeeping institute’s test, leaving many judges wowed during the blind taste tests.

Weighing almost 650g and selling for £10, the Easter Egg gives you the most value for money in its segment. Fancy confectioners Stas Chocolatier Sweetie Egg which costs £30 for a 700g egg scored seven points less in the Experts charts. But Stas Chocolatier won the best in the children’s category with their £9.50 Easter Egg Head. The child-friendly sweetie that comes with eyes, nose, ears, eyebrows and mouth stuck together with edible glue, scored 78 points from judges.

Bettys Milk Chocolate Spring Flowers Egg with a selling price of £25 quid for just 350g of chocolate won the Best for Grown-ups category. This top-end model got a score of 81. Chococo Milk Chocolate Honeycomb Easter Egg, which scored 77 and costs just £12  bagged the Best for Teens award. This comes in a much smaller package, 175g to enjoy.
