Snack sized avocados have arrived in Ireland.

Zilla eggs, which come in six packs, are about a third of the size of regular avocados and weigh around 70 grams.

They’ll be available for a limited time only in Tesco, the supermarket chain says.

In recent years the popularity of avocados has soared, and the nutrition and fitness industries helped it go mainstream.

Zilla Eggs will be sold in recyclable egg style boxes to prevent them from getting spoiled.

“These Zilla Eggs are a brilliant way to offer customers great tasting, high quality avocados which are perfect for customers who want to snack, without the usual fuss or worry of wasting the other half of the avocado, Tesco fresh produce category director, Joe Manning, said.

“And it also helps producers who are able to sell even more of their avocado crop.”

A pack of Avozilla eggs is €3.50 in Tesco.
