Thorntons has slashed the price of their Easter eggs down to half price

True chocolate fans don't need for it to be Easter Sunday to enjoy a chocolate egg as fan favourite Thorntons has reduced the price on Easter eggs in their Easter Monday special offers.

Many enjoyed their Easter Sunday having raided the supermarket shelves of their Easter supply until they were bare and indulged in their favourite chocolate eggs – but the fun doesn't have to stop there.

You can pick up all your Thorntons favourites online for half price. While the kids are still on their Easter break from school, the extra chocolate can be used to make some delicious sweet treats to keep them busy – and more importantly happy.

Last month the chocolate chain announced plans to close all 61 of its UK stores due to the impact of lockdown and focus on its online retail arm.

A spokesperson for Thorntons said: "Changing dynamics of the high street, shifting customer behaviour to online, the ongoing impact of Covid-19 and the numerous lockdown restrictions over the last year – especially during our key trading periods at Easter and Christmas – has meant we have been operating in the most challenging circumstances.

The rep added, "Despite our best efforts we have taken the difficult decision to go into full consultation to start the permanent closure of our retail store estate. We understand that this will be an uncertain and concerning time for our colleagues and we will actively support them during this period."
