Many share pictures of empty shelves on social media and some draw comparisons to last year’s toilet paper shortage
First it was toilet roll, then flour. Now UK shoppers have decried a “national Easter egg shortage”, with disappointed shoppers taking to social media to share stories of unwelcome egg hunts and pictures of empty supermarket shelves.
Many said they had visited several local supermarkets without success. One Twitter user said her sister had visited 10 shops and returned empty-handed.
