Some Easter shoppers at Sainsbury's and Tesco have been left fuming after opening up their chocolate treats, only to discover that they have broken or melted.

Customers from both supermarkets took to social media to post their disappointment at opening up their broken chocolate eggs.

Some had melted in heat, while others had been broken up – taking away one of the best bits of eating an easter egg.

One Tesco shopper posted their complaint to Twitter, saying: "Ever so disappointed to find my Easter egg bought from my local Tesco Express store in this state when I opened it!"

The post also featured an image of the egg, which had collapsed in on itself after melting.

Another disappointed shopper also took to social media, describing how their egg had been smashed up.

In a post online, they said it was "not the surprise I was expecting".

Alongside this, they put a photo of a smashed up easter egg box which apparently only contained one half of the egg, which itself appeared to be broken.

Sainsbury's shoppers didn't fare much better, with one shopper putting up a photo showing a battered box that had been fixed with tape, saying: "When you order an Easter Egg from @sainsburys and it's battered and taped up."

With so many Easter eggs being moved around, unfortunately not all the delicate treats survive the journey.

Nonetheless, it has been disappointing for customers who had been looking forward to tucking into their chocolate.

A spokesperson for Tesco told The Daily Star: "We take great care to ensure our Easter eggs are sold in the best possible condition.

"But on the rare occasion a customer is unhappy with the quality of their egg, we're happy to arrange a replacement or refund if the customer returns the item to store."

A spokesman for Sainsbury's said: "We are supporting a very small number of customers who say the Easter eggs they purchased from us did not meet our high standards.

"Customers who are not satisfied with the egg they received can contact us instore or via our Careline to receive a refund or, where appropriate, a replacement product."
