British chocolate maker Thorntons has launched incredible discounts of up to 90% off selected chocolate products – with some items now only 50p.
Among the limited selection available online at thorntons.co.uk is a number of Easter eggs – yes, you read that right.
Originally priced at £7, bargain-hunters can pick up discounts of £6.50 (92% off) dark, milk and white chocolate 265g eggs .
Other oddly out of season goods include 200g white and milk chocolate Easter bunnies , also now 50p, reduced from £7.
Customers should head to the retailer’s website fast if they want to stock up on the sweet treats, as the retailer shifts its final batches of out of season products ahead of autumn, when shoppers will be more focused on stocking up for Halloween and Christmas.
Other incredible savings include discounts on summer gift boxes and classic sets from the popular brand, with most now on sale half price or less.
To qualify for free delivery you’ll need to spend £35 or more, which works out to 70 eggs.
But buying 10 eggs works out at £8.95 (£5 for the chocolate and £3.95 for standard delivery), which is not a bad deal considering at full price the cost would set you back a whopping £70 including free delivery.
Shoppers have been so enamoured with the deal, many have been sharing information on deals groups and forums like the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK on Facebook and Hotukdeals.com .
But not everyone is so impressed with the deal. One Hotukdeals member posted a tongue in cheek message to fellow shoppers, “Get them quick – not long now Happy Easter everyone!”
Another added, “Wow when I woke up this morning I didn’t realise I’d been in a coma for 8 months! How did the whole Brexit thing go?”.
If you’re not in the mood for Easter, but can bring yourself to thing about Christmas, you may want to head to Costco to stock up on giant 2kg Quality Street tins that are on sale a whole 103 days ahead of December.
