My community centre was holding an Easter raffle this year. We bought three strips for a pound each, and then about a week later received a phone call saying we'd won a prize.

When we went to the centre to pick it up, we found that we'd won three Sainsbury's easter eggs. Sainsbury's made five own-label eggs this year, each retailing at 1, so we won the eggs for exactly what we would have paid in store for them.

The five eggs that Sainsbury's do are Caramel, Fizzy Belts, Eric the Elephant, Jelly Beans, and Rainbow Buttons. We won the last three of these.

As you can tell by the name, the easter eggs are aimed at children, and each colourful box comes with a joke and puzzle on the size (such as a crossword).

The 100g milk egg inside each box is exactly the same, the difference being the sweets inside. Eric the Elephant has gummy Sweets, Rainbow Buttons has white Jazzies, and I think you can guess what's in the Jelly Beans box.

I was not expected much for a cheap Sainsbury's egg; I thought it would be very sweet, sugary, and thin. But to my pleasant surprise, the egg is actually made up of 31% cocoa solids - 9% higher than I expected - and instead of being overly sweet, it was very creamy and delicious. It definitely gives the more expensive branded easter eggs a run for their money.
