Dozens of liquorice-flavoured chocolate eggs and bunnies languish on supermarket shelves


Dozens of liquorice-flavoured chocolate eggs and bunnies languish on supermarket shelves TWO WEEKS after Easter as shoppers fail to hop to buy the polarising flavour

  • Darrell Lea went out on a limb with chocolate products embedded with liquorice
  • Don’t appear to have been a hit with the Australian public as many still unsold
  • Other Easter products are long gone but these are on half price in supermarkets 

Easter ended two weeks ago but supermarket shelves are still fully stocked with one brand they just can’t seem to get rid of.

Darrell Lea’s liquorice chocolate bunnies and two type of eggs are still lingering on supermarket shelves with barely any sold each day.

Photos from a Sydney Woolworths store on Saturday show dozens of boxes full of the tasty treats even with the supermarket offering them at half price.

Customers said even more boxes were elsewhere in the store, along with bags of mini eggs with liquorice flavour in impulse buy displays near the checkouts.

The iconic Australian-owned brand is famous for spicing up Easter hauls with high-quality chocolate in a range of flavours matching its year-round offering.

But the company went out on a limb this year and shipped thousands of chocolate products embedded with liquorice.

The polarising flavour is not everyone’s favourite, and inserting it into easter chocolate appears to have not been a hit with the Australian public.

Other Easter products that were left over after Sunday vanished from shelves, also at discounts, within a few days.

Daily Mail Australia contacted Woolworths, Coles, and Darrell Lea for comment.
