The Giant Chocolate Easter Egg Costco Is Selling For Almost $200

Still need to buy your Easter candy? You could pay out the nose for something small and gourmet... or you could head to Costco and get a massive amount of honeycomb and chocolate. The choice seems pretty obvious, right?

If you really want to do the most this Easter (and why wouldn't you, after this past year?), look no further than the new Easter egg launch from Violet Crumble. Violet Crumble bars are a classic candy from Australia, first produced back in 1913, made of crunchy honeycomb candy coated in milk chocolate (via the BBC). Their new Easter egg is already turning heads for two reasons: first, because it's $250 Australian dollars (that's about $190 USD) and second, because the egg weighs six kilograms (via Kidspot). That's about as heavy as two bricks, or nine-tenths of a bowling ball, or 120 normal-sized Violet Crunch bars (via The Measure of Things). 

Sadly, as you may already have guessed, this monumental Easter egg is only available at Costco Australia, so us northern hemisphere dwellers won't be able to find it locally, but that hasn't quelled the excitement online.

People are excited about the massive egg

According to CEO of Robern Menz, Phil Sims, the inspiration for the egg was as sweet as the candy itself. "With Aussies able to celebrate Easter together socially distanced this year, we wanted to bring a smile to everyone's faces with an Easter selection sure to satisfy their chocolate and honeycomb needs" (via the Daily Mail).

And, at least in the comments of the brand's Instagram announcement of the egg, it seems that people are really ready for something sweet. One commenter wrote: "OMG think I have died and gone to heaven," which was quickly followed by comments like "Dreams do come true," "Get in my belly," and "I think I may NEED this."

If you think you may need this too (and you're able to get your hands on it), make sure you have a sharing plan ready, or some serious space in your freezer set aside; six kilograms of candy is more than you probably think.
