£5 Easter egg is a little cracker

A £5 supermarket Easter egg has beaten luxury rivals costing up to £70 in a taste test.

Tesco's Chokablok American Dreamcake took the title of Good Housekeeping Easter Egg of the Year, impressing judges with its "varying textures, enticing design and value for money".

Among its competitors were the £70 Hotel Chocolate Half and Half Ostrich Easter Egg and the Harrods Chocolate Brownie and Raspberry Egg, which costs £24.95.

Tasters sampled 193 chocolate eggs to decide the winners of four categories – eggs for children, eggs for grown-ups, eggs for sharing and the overall winner.
