Morrisons ‘war crime’ as supermarket caught selling Easter eggs on Boxing Day

Fuming shoppers have accused Morrisons of committing a “war crime” after the supermarket decided to start stocking Easter eggs on Boxing Day.

Despite the celebration remaining more than three months away, disgusted Brits spotted treats including Malteser bunnies, Cadbury eggs and a huge Creme Egg display at the retailer's branch in Canterbury.

The Easter chocolate sparked fury at its early showing, with one customer slamming it as "commercialism at its best".

It even had a 2 for £1 deal on offer on the traditional treats – despite most people throughout Britain not even finishing their Christmas selection boxes, reports The Mirror.

One customer raged: "There you go people, Morrisons selling Easter eggs on Boxing Day” with another adding: "No! Make it stop! My eyes!".

But it wasn’t just Morrisons that decided it wasn’t too early to start flogging the Easter snacks, with Tesco and Co-op shoppers also posting photos online of the early holiday displays.

One person shopping at Co-op seethed: "Tis the season for Easter chocolate (even though Christmas chocolate is reduced opposite)."

Whilst another customer wrote: "I joked with some shelf stackers about Easter eggs in Morrisons the other day and they laughed and said that the first five boxes were already in the warehouse. True story."

The selection on offer at Morrisons already includes the usual Easter treats with bags of Mini Eggs, a 2 for 1 deal on Creme Eggs and Lindt's signature gold bunnies.

Thankfully, it did not include boxed eggs – unlike Tesco and the Co-op, where baffled shoppers revealed boxes ready to gift to children.
