You *saw* them in Springs' Spinneys at some point? All I saw were the cakes. I wondered if there would be any Creme Eggs.
A more important question is, where are they imported from? The Antipodes or the UK? Very different Cadbury's, you know (though I don't know what the UK ones are like since Kraft took them over)

I actually *bought* some from Spinneys, AND I had the decency to leave some for others. I won't be making that mistake again!

They're only the UK ones, but needs must etc

Is there a mad scramble going on to clear the shelves, or will you just poach them from other people's trolleys?

if someone tries to remove the eggs from my trolley they will be treated to my impression of a demented rottweiler, free of charge.

Now i just need to find the eggs to put in a trolley Big Grin

she's being awfully quiet WM, do you suppose she might have headed over there already? lol! If someone could get them, I really would appreciate it....himself is tired, cranky and eggless. Not a good combination.
