“I don’t think I can actually look at more chocolate right now.”
Tesco, Morrisons, M&S, the Co-op are just a handful of supermarkets that have started stocking the shelves with Easter chocolate.
And people are absolutely losing their minds over it, reports The Manc.
We might very firmly be in the middle of the so-called ‘twixmas’ period by now, with Christmas Day almost seeming like a distant memory, our minds casting forward to the new year, and nobody really having any idea what day it is.
But surely time hasn’t fast forward to spring already? A walk around your local supermarket might leave you thinking otherwise.
The last few days of the festive season after the big day itself has passed us by is usually when shops slash the price of the remaining Christmas chocolate to try and shift it off the shelves, and it usually means you can grab yourself a bargain if you’ve still got some sugar cravings to satisfy.
This year though, it looks like some supermarkets might’ve skipped this step all together and moved straight on to selling Easter chocolate.
Bags of Cadbury Mini Eggs, boxes filled to the brim with Creme Eggs, and other Easter sweets have been spotted on the shelves at several supermarkets nationwide, and it’s fair to say it’s left people a little shocked and confused.
Complaining about how early seasonal sweet treats are stocked in shops isn’t really a new thing, but most people can probably agree this time it is warranted.
People have been taking to social media to share their thoughts on the madness.
One person said on Twitter: “Easter eggs are already in the shops. After April it will be BBQ season, summer will be in full swing. Then it’s Halloween chocolate and sweets. Then Christmas food again. It never ends.”
“Morrisons already have Easter eggs out…. I don’t think I can actually look at another chocolate right now,” another exclaimed.
A third person wrote: “In the Co-op again… and chocolate eggs have already landed on shelves for Easter on 9 April. Crazy… lets not peck too early.”

Some, on the other hand, seem to be a little more excited at the arrival of Easter chocolate and are even planning on “stockpiling” their favourites.
“Is it too soon to start stockpiling Easter Eggs? That egg chocolate just hits different,” one person said.
