Easter crackers: are they becoming a thing?

Little bundles of bunnytastic Easter treats to pull open on Easter Sunday: are you in?


We all love Easter, right? But do we love it as much as – maybe more – than Christmas? 


Apparently, so, with some calling Easter ‘Christmas, The Sequel’ – and shops and supermarkets stocking up on Easter crackers.

Yep, crackers for Easter.

Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose and John Lewis are all stocking them, and word is they are way more popular than they’ve ever been. In fact, Waitrose say they’ve seen a 63% surge in sales this year.

Many of these crackers arrive empty, with a loose end, so that you can insert your own Easter sweets and treats, and those that don’t come decked out with fluffy yellow chicks, paper hats – even crummy jokes, like their Christmas counterparts.

Here are some of the best Easter crackers we’ve seen so far…
