Tesco, Wilko and Co-op slash price of Christmas chocolate including Milk Tray for 50p

From a box of Milk Tray for 50p to a huge box of Ferrero Rocher for £1.40, we've rounded up some of the best deals around right now.

After overindulging at Christmas, millions of people are hitting the gym and buying vegetables instead of sweet treats now it's January.

But for chocaholics, this is the perfect time of year to stock up on your favourite treats as supermarkets try to clear the shelves of seasonal goodies.

Wilko, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Co-op are among stores reducing prices by up to 90 per cent to try and shift the last of the Christmas choc.

Bargain hunters who posted about the sales on HotUKDeals.com are already snapping up the items – so you'll need to act quickly if you want some cut-price sweets.

All of these deals are in stores only, not online.

Sainsbury's has the most offers available of any of the major supermarkets that we've found.

It has slashed the price of a £10 600g box of Lindt Lindor down to £1.30 if you can find it in stores.

It's also reduced the price of two Ferrero Rocher boxes to £1.40 or £1.30 depending on whether they contain 48 or 42 chocolates.

Tesco also has a deal on a 600g box of 48 Lindt Lindor truffles.

One shopper said she picked up cartons for £1.88 – but the deal may be specific to the unknown branch where she bought them from as they were yellow-sticker items.

Wilko also has some reductions on Christmas chocolate.

How to find the cheapest deals

  • Find the cheapest online prices: Google Shopping is a good tool for finding the cheapest price – it searches a wide range of retailers of various sizes
  • Abandon online shopping baskets: Don't go straight to check-out after putting the items in your basket – it may tease retailers into giving you discount codes
  • Ask a site to negotiate a fee for you: If you're struggling to find a deal, Flubit is a free site that aims to negotiate discounts for you
  • Sign up to retailers' newsletters for big discounts: It sometimes means a percentage discount code, or a straight discount off your first shop
  • Check when stores discount groceries: Check with your local store when they discount food items that are about to expire – this is the perfect time to nab bargains

 

A Thorntons chocolate lolly of The Snowman has been slashed to 10p from £1.

If you can't make it into a branch of Wilko, Thorntons has also reduced the lolly to 50p and the deal is available online.

The cheap chocolate deals are going down a storm with bargain hunters on the HotUKDeals messageboards.

One said: "Seriously cheap and seriously hot! The deal not the chocolates!"

Another added: "Feeling Lindt sick at moment, never eaten so much amazing chocolate.

"Will be completely sick of it soon but still going. Going to get more in Tesco tomorrow, the new year diet already screwed."

It's always a good idea to try and shop around to make sure you really are getting the best deal.

And as with anything, it's only a deal if you would normally buy the item on sale anyway.

Meanwhile, Tesco has dropped the price of big tubs of Quality Street and Celebrations to £2.50.

Bargain hunters are already busy preparing for next Christmas by snapping up festive clearance items such as cheap turkeys for £1 and 75p Christmas trees.

One business-savvy mum may have prevented many family fall outs this Christmas after flogging reorganised tubs of Quality Street filled only with one type of chocolate.
