Easter eggs are already on sale in Plymouth – Plymouth Live

Most of us are still making our way through the mountains of chocolate we received at Christmas, but that hasn't stopped supermarkets displaying Easter eggs for sale - already .

These Easter treats have been spotted at the Iceland store in Plymstock. And they're not the only store to jump the gun and move swiftly past the festivities.

For most retailers it's never too early to get an order of Easter eggs in and put them on sale - though Easter is still more than four months away. You heard that correctly.

Co-op has already started selling Easter eggs and in stores in Cornwall.

It's a similar story at a Co-op store in Hull, which has led anger on social media.

One person posted: "Would you believe it. Co-op selling Easter eggs already!"

Another social media user also said: "What is wrong with all retail companies? Please let us enjoy Christmas, I think it is GREED with them."

With many people still trying to burn off those Christmas calories then it would seen unlikely that these eggs will be in high demand.

However, it seems discount store B&M also failed to get the memo and was also offering Easter chocolates in December.

One confused shopper spotted Cadbury's Mini Eggs, Galaxy Enchanted Eggs and Kit Kat chocolate bunnies on sale in B&M's Sealand Road branch in Chester, as first reported on Cheshire Live.

But B&M isn't the only retailer selling Easter essentials already, with hot cross buns available at Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsbury's.

This year Easter Sunday falls on April 12.

Easter can be any time between March 22 and April 25. Good Friday is April 10, and the Easter Monday bank holiday is on April 13.
