TWO WEEKS after Easter, dozens of chocolate eggs and licorice-flavored bunnies lie on supermarket shelves because shoppers can’t buy the polarizing flavor
- Darrell Lea got going with chocolate products embedded in licorice root
- It doesn’t seem to have been a hit with the Australian public as many are still unsold
- Other Easter products have long since disappeared, but these are at half the price in supermarkets
Easter ended two weeks ago, but supermarket shelves are still completely stocked with one brand that they just can’t get rid of.
Darrell Lea’s chocolate bunnies and two types of eggs are still on supermarket shelves and barely sold every day.
Photos from a Sydney Woolworths store on Saturday show dozens of boxes full of treats, even if the supermarket offers them at half price.

Customers said there were even more boxes elsewhere in the store, along with bags of licorice-flavored mini eggs in impulse purchase displays at the checkout counters.
The iconic Australian-owned brand is known for flavoring Easter flights with high-quality chocolate in a range of flavors to match its year-round offerings.
But the company took off this year, shipping thousands of chocolate products containing licorice root.
The polarizing flavor isn’t everyone’s favorite, and the Easter chocolate insert doesn’t seem to be a hit with the Australian crowd.
Other Easter products left over after Sunday disappeared from the shelves within days, including with discounts.
Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Woolworths, Coles and Darrell Lea for comment.
