M&M mini-eggs are now a thing – and they're perfect for Easter

M&M mini-eggs are now a thing – and they're perfect for Easter

January 9, 2019

The new chocolate eggs come with a crunchy shell and milk chocolate filling, in bags ideal for sharing.

You can pick them up across all major UK supermarkets for £1 for an 80g bag, £2.50 for a 250g bag and £3.50 for a 315g bag.

They only come in the milk chocolate flavour so you won't find the crispy or peanut varieties that M&M's is popular for.

The chocolate eggs have already been spotted in Iceland by food blogger instafoodietwins who wrote: "Now any M&M's lover will love these as they aren't anything different apart from the shape."

One user replied: "looks so yummy!" and another said: "we gotta look out for these".

Some shoppers are surprised to see Easter chocolate on the shelf though. For example, Jay on Twitter wrote: "Easter Eggs already everywhere. It's January. I didn't even know M&M's did mini Easter eggs."

One 80g bag of the chocolate contains 386 calories and and 52g of sugar.

The NHS recommends a daily intake of 2,000 calories and 90g of sugar – so they're definitely one to share around.

Last year, M&M's launched new chocolate cake bars at Sainsbury's and Asda, which are filled with a chocolate sponge, cream and M&M's pieces.

And for more Easter treats, Cadbury has launched Freddo Treasures which are just like a Kinder Surprise.

Supermarkets have also slashed the price of luxury Christmas chocolate by up to 90 per cent, including boxes of Ferrero Rocher and Milk Tray.
