How about this for some sweet statistics!
- UK consumers spent £395 million on Easter eggs and confectionery during Easter 2018, up 5% on 2017 and it is anticipated that spend in 2019 will be even higher.
- Such spending equates to the equivalent of over 1,700 average priced UK homes.
- By property type, this would buy over 2,000 average priced terraced properties, compared to just 1,100 detached homes.
- The UK is the fourth highest consumer of chocolate in the world. Mintel estimates 1 in 6 UK adults consumes chocolate every single day, the average person consuming approximately 9.5kg of chocolate per year. That’s a lot of eggs!
So, if you were to have £395 million pounds to spend on something, other than Chocolate Eggs, how about some of these:
