Kinder Surprise Easter Eggs... We can't wait for Easter tomorrow
Its Easter tomorrow, I have 2 very excited boys... I am sure they will grow-up be chocolate connoisseurs when they are older, as chocolate is a priority to them.
All the way back in February, actually it was 9th February to be precise, I popped in to my local Co-Op for toilet roll as you do. I told the boys they could have a treat, so we we're looking down the sweet aisle, I spotted a few Kinder Surprise Easter Eggs. I am awful I can not help myself but impulse buy. As there was not many of Kinder Eggs on the shelf, only about 6 in total. I grabbed 2 blue ones. They stated 'Find a fantastic Batman Surprise inside', I hate to point this out, that's has spoiled the surprise... Oops just saying!
When I got to the till, the chap serving me announced £17.50, I almost died on the spot, I was trying to calculate in my head, toilet paper, eggs and couple of cheap sweets. With Liam standing next to me with the biggest grin slapped on his face. I knew it was the Easter Eggs, they were £6 each. Now do I put them back and suffer the torture of being the meanest mum in the World, with a screaming hissing fit all the way, actually it could be worst or do I pay the man and look all smiley. While feeling I have been robber in broad daylight, I went for the latter. All I could say was £12 for 2 Easter eggs all the way home, with surprised wide eyes.
I have had these wallet busting Kinders on the kitchen side for bloody ages now. I'll be honest I didn't even know when Easter was when I brought them. What I do know, is I have wanted to buy the boys Kinder Easter Eggs for years, I have never seen them available in their lifetime. So in fairness that's another good reason to keep. I'm trying to justify my actions here. I am fully aware there is the super fantastic Batman toy inside, I am sure they will be worth it.
The Co-op had sold out of the other Kinder Easter Eggs by the following day. Out of curiosity I have Googled to see if I can buy them anywhere else. Only Ebay at about £12 a pop. Well, I feel much better now, knowing them they doubled in price.
I wonder if the boys will share any of there wonderful tasty Kinders with me tomorrow! I doubt it haha
HAPPY EASTER, I hope everyone has a lovely holiday, filled with love, chocolate and loved-ones.
Don't be share, come and say HI!
