With this in mind, we were more than happy to egg-experiment on ten of the most popular Easter eggs to find out which egg gives you more chocolate for your money compared to packaging – and can reveal that Cadbury Crunchie comes out on top.

 *Methodology: On March 21st 2024, MyVoucherCodes bought ten £3 Easter eggs from Tesco from four confectionary brands. It weighed the eggs as sold on the shelf, then measured the boxes, weighed the chocolate egg and chocolate included in its wrapping, and then weighed the cardboard boxes. It then compared the weight ratio of chocolate and wrapping with cardboard packaging to work out which Easter egg had the most chocolate compared with cardboard packaging.   **
