M&S’s boozy Easter egg has flown off the shelves and is now sold out online. The Gin & Ton-Egg, costing £5, is a gin flavoured milk chocolate egg with pink gin flavoured chocolate buttons inside. Marks’ recommends “Shaking it up so it sounds like ice cubes.” Despite the high demand, shoppers are undecided whether the gin and chocolate combination sounds delicious or just plain strange. One woman said: “It’s a no from me…I don’t like chocolate! I drink gin but can’t stand tonic!”
Another replied: “I had some gin and tonic truffles for Christmas, they were disgusting.” And a third said: “No, I like mine in a glass with ice thank you.”
On the other side of the debate, one woman said: “Take my money now!” And another commented: “Hands up! I will try it! My preference is dark chocolate, but hey, I’m a chocoholic so I can be pretty easily persuaded.”
A third said: “Gin and chocolate? How can that combination not be perfect?
“I was a little dubious when our butcher began making locally distilled gin and pork sausages, but of course, they are delicious too.”
