EASTER week is always choc-full of treats to choose from.
But what if, like me, you prefer your chocolate white over milk or dark? Go light on your sweet treats — and purse — with these blanc bargains . . .
SHOWSTOPPER: For some-thing a little special, check out Aldi for an ultimate white chocolate fix. The Specially Selected exquisite blonde chocolate beehive egg, £14.99 (in store only), not only looks amazing, it has sweet honeycomb pieces mixed throughout the shell, too.
For little extras, Aldi also has very purse-friendly Dairyfine white hot-chocolate mug melts, in the shape of sheep, for just £1.99.
THICK OF IT: Many Easter eggs won’t satisfy that need for a chunkier shell. Thankfully, Marks and Spencer has an amazing extra-thick blonde & white chocolate egg for £12 — and it’s extra large in size, too.
Similarly thick-shelled eggs cost £29 from Hotel Chocolat, but they’re smaller in size and weight (though they do come with extra chocolates).
DON’T SHELL OUT: If you have an extra sweet tooth and are a fan of flavoured shells, check out the pudding-inspired white chocolate Eton mess deluxe premium Easter egg, £3.99 at Lidl.
It weighs 200g, so works out as much more bang for your buck than a small 90g chocolate block of the same flavour, £3.50 at Thorntons.
GO LARGE: Tesco has a great range of XL eggs — and Clubcard shoppers can nab some fantastic deals.
The Maltesers white truffles chocolate egg is right up my street. It costs £8 with a Clubcard, rather than £10.
If you would like a chocolate bar too, included in the same deal is an XL white Twix egg, £3.95, instead of £5.
SAVING: £2 on Maltesers egg
Deal of day
THE Co-Op’s new £6 pizza deal is perfect. Buy a pizza, a side and a dessert all for just £6. I’d go for the stuffed-crust pepperoni pizza, a dozen garlic doughballs and Gu Inspirations Cookies & Cream pud.
SAVE: Average of £4
CHOCOLATE Orange Yazoo is in stores now. The 500ml limited-edition milk drink bottles are just £1 a pop.
