It may feel like Easter eggs have been lining the supermarket shelves for weeks, but just when you thought you’d seen it all before, Waitrose have launched an egg with a difference, and it’s shaped like an avocado!

Avocado choc

Whilst it’s probably lacking the nutritional benefits of the nation’s favourite superfood, we can’t get enough of this avocado-chocolate combo. The life-like egg has a dark chocolate shell, white chocolate green ‘flesh’ and an inner cocoa-dusted ‘stone’.

These amazing looking eggs will be available in-store and online from 20th February and will set you back £8. Avocado fans, get ready, we’re sure they won’t be around for long.
