The finest* Medley of Belgian Chocolate Easter Eggs, £25 has cracked it by beating luxury rivals to take the title of Good Housekeeping Easter Egg of the Year.  This is the second year running that Tesco has won the coveted award.

The judges were wowed by this egg – they described it as “beautifully presented nesting half eggs in a decorative wooden box. The mixture of white, milk and dark chocolate along with butterscotch, raspberry, hazelnuts and coconut pieces means there is something for everyone to enjoy.”

With a score of 88/100, it topped the tasting and saw off rivals such as the £24.95 Harrods Lattice Egg which scored 79/100, and the £45 Rococco Milk & Dark Egg which scored 78/100.

Good Housekeeping Consumer Director Caroline Bloor said: “You're as likely to find a delicious Easter treat in the supermarket as you are in the luxury shops.”

                                  
In addition, Tesco also won the Good Housekeeping Hot Cross Bun tasting with their finest* 4 Hot Cross Buns, £1.70.  The judges were impressed by their “beautiful rounded shape, soft juicy fruit and just the right amount of spice.”

Scoring 78/100, these hot cross buns beat rivals including Waitrose Fruit & Oat Hot Cross Buns, £1.69 for 4 which scored 65/100 and Heston’s Honey and Ginger Hot Cross Buns, £1.69 for 2 which scored 58/100.
