With Easter just days away, Marks & Spencer has introduced lots of festive foods to help Britons celebrate. However, it has shared an update on Easter eggs. 

This year, Easter Sunday falls on April 4 this year.

Over the bank holiday weekend, Britons are sure to indulge in lots of Easter foods which are not eaten at other times of the year.

Marks & Spencer has launched a number of special items including hot cross buns, roasting meats and Easter Eggs.

M&S Director of Product Development April Preston said: “We have expanded our range to make sure we have something for everyone, with delicious, great quality Easter Eggs – including our plant based and gluten free eggs – and a fantastic range of flowers and gifts available in store and online, which customers are loving.

“Our Easter family dine-in launches in-stores shortly.

“Our wider range and ease of shopping, both in store and online, is helping make M&S more relevant more often for our customers.”

The latest offerings include brand new chocolate eggs including plant based and gluten free eggs.

M&S has also wowed shoppers with a gin and tonic chocolate egg and extra thick options.

While there are lots of eggs to choose from, some shoppers may struggle to get their hands on one.

With Easter Sunday just days away, the food retailer has shared a message for customers trying to buy Easter eggs.

Its website stated: “Due to high demand we have sold out of most of our Easter eggs online.

“Please check your nearest store for our full range.”

Customers who want to purchase a chocolate egg will need to visit their local stores to check availability.

A statement added: “We doubled our range of Easter products online this year to 29, and have seen sales sky rocket by 3000 percent on the year.

“Availability is limited online – but shoppers can be rest assured we have plenty of Easter goodies available in our stores.”

If heading to stores to look for Easter treats, Britons have more places to go than ever as M&S opens more than 50 pop-up stores across the UK.

It has converted M&S cafés, which are temporarily closed, into pop-up stores dedicated to selling Easter foods and gifts.

The supermarket chain stated the pop-up stores will be filled with everything families need for a lockdown Easter.

A statement said: “Over the last year, we have seen customers making more of events than ever before as they seek out little moments of joy for them and their loved ones to break-up the challenges of lockdown.

“With this in mind, we want to make our ranges as accessible as possible – by making clever use of our closed café space and expanding our online offer to help customers deliver direct to loved ones too.”

While some products are sold out, the retailer has introduced an Easter Dine In option, which feeds four people for £20. 

Customers can pick a roasting main, three sides and a dessert, which offers savings of up to £12.

Main options including chicken, pork and beef roasting joints as well as a vegan ‘chickenless’ roasting joint option.
