Your eyes are not deceiving you – it does look like a potato. Morrisons has brought back its delicious white chocolate Easter Egg, and now people are talking about it for all the wrong reasons
When it comes to picking an Easter egg you’ve got plenty of choice this year, but your eyes will no doubt do a double-take if you spot this particular treat on supermarket shelves.
Supermarket shoppers think this Egg looks more like a potato than a white chocolate treat – and can you blame them? Morrisons brought back its most popular Easter Eggs – including the Best Belgian White & Blonde Chocolate Easter egg.
While there’s no doubt people love it for its delicious flavour, its appearance is what has got people talking. Taking to the Facebook group Snack News & Reviews, one member shared a picture of the egg, writing: “The [potato emoji] Egg is back at Morrisons!”
Hundreds of amused shoppers flocked to the comment section, with another adding: “I’m glad I wasn’t the only one that thought it was a potato.” A third commented: “Thought that was a potato,” while a fourth joked: “Now that’s a tattie that would make some good soup!!”
“I mite [sic] get one and put my sons Mr potato head bits on it,” said another, while a sixth added: “Is it just me who looked initially at that and thought it was a jacket spud?”
But the Easter egg’s tater-like appearance didn’t put people off, Wales Online reports. One person wrote: “I want it!,” while another added: “This looks so good.”
Morrisons’ The Best Belgian White & Blonde Chocolate Easter Egg is after all not an actual potato. According to its description on the supermarket’s website, “The Best Belgian White & Blonde Chocolate Egg is part of our premium Easter collection”.
It continues: “Crafted by a fourth-generation family chocolatier, with over 100 years of experience, using the finest ingredients to bring you a mouth-watering moment of indulgence with every bite. Our luxuriously rich and creamy Belgian white and blonde chocolate egg, studded with crisp biscuit pieces.”
