Easter is here and the Kernan Group have decided to do a survey to find out what our top selling Easter Eggs are in Donegal.
To carry out the survey we analysed the sales figures from our 6 stores throughout Donegal (Newtown, Ramelton, Ballyshannon, Drumkeen, Tullygay Newmills ,and Lower Main Street Letterkenny) to bring you a chocolate lovers ‘Golden Ticket Searching’ list of Donegal’s top 10 favourite Easter Eggs.
Some of you will disagree with our results, some of you may be disappointed that your favorite did not make the list, but all Kernans can do is present the findings of this important Easter preparing chocolate hierarchy as chosen by our customers over the last four weeks.

Number 5. Flake Easter Egg
The process for making Cadbury Flake is a closely guarded secret and no other chocolate manufacturer has ever managed to recreate it. That's why no other chocolate bar can rival the delicate, crumbly texture of a Cadbury Flake, well according to Cadbury's. In at number 5.
Number 4. Wispa Easter Egg
Brought back by a fans' online campaign, Cadbury Wispa bars are one of Irelands favourite chocolate bars! Selling well at number 4 in the list.
Number 3. Creme Egg Easter Egg
A Cadburys Creme egg consists of a thick chocolate shell, housing a white and yellow fondant filling which mimics the albumen and yolk of a chicken egg. The Creme Eggs are the best selling confectionery item between New Year's Day and Easter but as an easter Egg they drop to number 5 in the list.
Number 2. Twirl Easter Egg.
At least once in your life you have bitten of the end of a twirl and used it as a straw in your tea or coffee. It is well worth the risk of being caught. Meet our second best selling egg this year
