Sure we may as well get the Halloween stuff in at this point. 

Tesco Ireland has responded to customers' outrage after Easter Eggs were spotted on shelves just one week after Christmas.

The supermarket spokesperson said:

“We stock a small range of Easter eggs in selected stores to cater for customers who prefer to stock up early or to buy them over a period of time to help spread the cost.

“The full Easter Egg range will not be in stores until later next year.”

Customers in the UK and Ireland were disgusted to spot shelves stocked full with Easter goodies before the Christmas decorations have even been taken down. 

One shopper at Tesco Lucan told The Irish Sun:

“Isn’t that just a complete joke? What pressure does that put on parents when their kids see that?

“It’s absolutely disgraceful I think they should be ashamed of themselves. It’s not even 2018 for god’s sake.

The customer continued: “It’s completely unnecessary and just puts incredible strain on hard-working parents who are struggling to recover from the Christmas holidays.”

The last thing anyone wants to see is more chocolate after the festive gluttony, tbh. 

We'll be leaving the eggs on the shelves for the time being.
