The move came after Sensations noticed an increase in internet searches for ‘alternative Easter eggs’, coupled with new research that revealed a third of the nation prefer savoury over sweet treats at Easter, and two thirds prefer a night in over a night out.
Ali Kirk from Walkers Sensations told Femail: ‘We know there’s a growing trend for savoury over sweet at Easter because 37 per cent of the public think savoury snacks are available in more exciting flavours and one in five say they think chocolate Easter eggs are for kids.
‘So, there’s never been a better time for our savoury Easter treat to go on sale.

Alternative Easter eggs have grown in popularity in recent years as retailers seek to cash in on those who are not fans of chocolate.
Last year, Sainsbury’s announced it was stocking the Cheesalicious Easter Egg, made from a solid 120g of cheddar from Lancashire farms, with a packet of oatcakes and sachet of chutney.
It followed a Blacksticks Blue variety that was sold by Asda in 2018.
And the craze for boozy advent calendars is also spilling into Easter, with treats such as bottles of gin with chocolate mini eggs on offer.
