I just love Easter for so many reasons, besides my religious side of things, there is nothing that warms my heart more than watching the joy on our children’s faces when they jump out of bed, ready to see what the Easter Bunny has brought them. The joy of watching them run around looking for all the hidden eggs, and the excitement when they announce that they have found another one.
The thing is that over the years, the cost of Easter eggs has become a little ridiculous. I know that everything has gone up, but to pay R70.00 for a box of 48 marshmallow eggs wow. Easter has become very expensive, and it leaves us wondering if it is worth spending so much money on chocolate. So I decided to help you keep the fun in Easter. I did the leg work for you, I shopped around to find the best buys this Easter.
I visited the following retail stores: SPAR, Pick n Pay, Checkers, Woolworths, The Crazy Store and Game and this is what I found!
All the stores that I visited have a really nice range of Easter chocolates, they are easy to find and are all displayed beautifully. Some stores have a much smaller range than other and Woolworths has a lot more than just chocolates, they will cost you a little more but they are well presented. The Crazy Store has a lot of Easter items that are not Chocolate, which is always nice to add to the Easter Gifts.
