£9 ‘vile’ Easter eggs left on shelves as Tesco shoppers vote with their wallets

Horrified shoppers have made their feelings known over a range of £9 Easter eggs on sale at Tesco which are still on our shelves. In all honesty, when you see which ones they are, you won’t be surprised.

Chocolate eggs are being whipped up at a discount now that Easter is over. But there is still an abundance of one type of egg in particular in some Tesco supermarkets, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by shoppers, MEN reports.

People have taken to social media to share photos of shelves filled with Bounty Easter eggs. It’s like the Christmas holiday bathtub but in the form of a supermarket.

Posting to Twitter on Easter Monday, social media user @ThisIsntNath shared a photo of a shelf full of Bounty Easter eggs. The shelves are stocked with eggs, which are on offer for £9 for Clubcard holders (or £12 if you don’t have one).

The social media user wrote: “Literally no one wants Bounty Easter Eggs.” Whoops.

Would you pay £9 for one of these Easter eggs? Let us know in the “Comments” section

The post did not go unnoticed by other social media users, who quickly rushed to smack the controversial eggs. @tinyfluffs wrote: “Wouldn’t pay £9 for this. Maybe £3.” @ThisIsntNath replied, “Tesco should pay me *me* to eat a Bounty tbh.”

@Xecotcovach snapped: “No one wants their hollow chocolate egg tainted with coconut.” @Artidoxx said “Anyone who loves coconut is a psychopath.”

On Redditanother person posted a similar photo, writing: “People vote with their wallets.”

One person replied: £9!?!? Nine! Classy! I love bounties, but nine pounds!?!? Make one, Tesco. Someone else replied, “I’ll pick one up for £9!” Oh wait, they want you to pay them?!”

Another disgusted Tesco shopper commented: ‘£9 for leftover party box. While someone else wrote: “Making a Bounty Easter egg is like hiring Jabba the Hutt as a ring girl.” Yet another hater simply wrote, “Vile.”

However, some people have stood up to defend the Bounty. One fan raved, “I love the bounty. Y’all are weird.” Another exclaimed: “Bounty bars are actually my favorite. I would consider buying one but the price is making my eyes melt.”

This is a dispute that will last until the end of time.
