The nation is only just polishing off the Christmas selection boxes, but could be gorging on Easter Eggs this evening.
Social media has gone into overdrive following the sighting of the hollow chocolate treats on the shelves of Tesco supermarkets this morning.
With four months to Easter, reports of sightings in Tesco in both Cork and Dublin in the past two days have resulted in disbelief online.
“Going to Tesco,” one Twitter user wrote, “Hope they’ve got some Easter Eggs left.”
“Waaay too early! [sic],” another wrote.
“In Tesco and just saw them filling the shelves with Easter eggs, is that a joke, its just been Christmas!!,” another tweeted.
A spokesperson for Tesco was unavailable for comment.
