The survey included brands such as Cadbury and Ferrero Rocher.

What did Which? find?

Asda was cheaper or the same price for four eggs, while Lidl and Morrisons were cheaper or the same price for three eggs each.

Waitrose or Ocado were not the cheapest for any of the eggs.

Cadbury Buttons and Cadbury Creme Eggs were both 59% more expensive at Waitrose compared with the cheapest supermarkets.

For a giant Easter egg, the Cadbury Crunchie Giant Egg was £3.57 more at Ocado and Tesco compared to Asda (£8.43).

Which? money editor Reena Sewraz said: “With a difference of over £3.50 on a giant Easter egg, our analysis shows how important it is to shop around, especially if you have a specific brand in mind.

“Anyone looking to stretch their cash even further should check the supermarket’s own brand options which might be just as tasty for a fraction of the price.”
