BRITONS have been thrilled to receive what amounts to three bars’ worth of chocolate.
Across the country everyone is looking forward to unwrapping big, shiny boxes that contain what is basically a normal chocolate bar melted down and made into a hollow oval, plus a couple of newsagent-standard chocolate bars.
Teacher Mary Fisher said: “There’s nothing like a mass market Easter egg, even if it is the biggest con ever.
“Chocolate tastes so much better when it is shaped, for some reason, like an egg, then encased in rigid plastic alongside two bars of standard chocolate.”
Chocolate company boss Norman Steele said: “They would get more chocolate if they went to Londis and bought four Dairy Milks, plus then they wouldn’t have to cut their hands on unnecessarily tough Easter egg packaging.
“I’m glad they don’t do that though, because then I would have less money.”
