We tried to find the cheapest Easter egg still available in Nottinghamshire on Easter Monday

Easter Sunday is the day when chocolate eggs are traditionally gifted to family and friends during the four day Easter bank holiday weekend. Traditionally, Christians were not allowed eggs ahead of Easter, and exchanged eggs on Easter Sunday to celebrate.

It also traditionally marks the end of Lent, which lasts 40 days from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday. But one day on from Easter Sunday (April 17) with most stores opening as normal on Easter Monday (April 18), is there still time to grab a cut price Easter egg before they vanish from the shelves this year?

We had a look around a handful of supermarkets in Nottingham city centre and the Arnold area for one last Easter egg hunt to find out if any bargains are to be had. And we found that some have got them on offer, one is still selling them at full retail price, and some have already taken them off the shelves.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the cheapest eggs could be found in Aldi. We visited the store on Mansfield Road in Daybrook, near Arnold.

The popular budget supermarket still had a good section of eggs on offer, including Moser Roth eggs of various sizes, ranging from £1.99 to £2.99, and Kit Kat Chunky and Galaxy Enchanted Easter eggs, both priced £2.99. The cheapest regular size egg that could be seen was the £1.99 offering.

The next cheapest Nottinghamshire Live could find was in the newly opened Sainsbury’s Local on Clumber Street. In this store are a number of Lindt Gold Bunny Milk Chocolate Easter Eggs on clearance, reduced from £10 to £5.

Tesco Express on Upper Parliament Street had a wider selection available, but these were retailed at normal price. A Malteasers Crunchy Giant Chocolate Egg is priced at £12 (£9 with a Clubcard), a Dairy Milk Orange Giant Buttons Easter Egg is priced at £10 (£8 with a Clubcard) and there were still some Kit Kat Chunky Biscoff Milk Chocolate Eggs available, although no price was available for these.

There were no Easter eggs to be seen in Lidl on Mansfield Road in Arnold, or in Wilkos on Lower Parliament Street in the city centre. That means the £1.99 Moser Roth Easter eggs in Aldi are the cheapest Nottinghamshire Live could find.
