Easter… a wonderful time of year if you’re a chocolate lover! We all know that calories don’t count at Easter, however the money expenditure DOES!

So many people spend so much money on Easter Eggs and Chocolate each year when they either don’t have it or when they don’t need too. Check out the video below and let me know your thoughts.

Easter is great time of year, ‘Coz – Chocolate! However, it’s not a great time for your waistline or wallet! The Waistline bit – is inevitable – if it wasn’t so delicious, then i’d eat less, however – my concern – is the wallet!

To ensure you are getting the most choc for your buck, the best thing to do is to take a look at the little tickets that are usually above or below the product you are looking to buy.

If you are on a budget then you really need to be paying attention to the following. How much you pay for the amount of chocolate you get, is so important. Obviously there are other factors involved – taste – allergies etc – but this post is designed to encourage people to check the label of their food (Not just chocolate) so that they are getting the most for their buck.

Above is a label for a Mars Easter Egg, it will cost you £1.07 for 100g of Chocolate

Above is a label for Lindt Excellence Egg, it will cost you £5.46 for 100g of Chocolate

As you can see the Lindt Egg is over 5x more expensive. You would get 719g of Mars chocolate for the same price as 1 Lindt egg (220g). So… whether you think the extra £££ is worth it or not, is completely up to you – however – if you are on a bit of a budget – just remember 5 eggs…. or 1 egg… which would you prefer?
