Easter is just around the corner and supermarket shelves are already brimming with novelty chocolate delights.

But this year it’s not just children that get to have all the fun.

To the delight of grown-ups everywhere, Marks & Spencer has released a prosecco-infused Easter egg to celebrate the chocolate-fuelled holiday.

Aptly named the “Proseggo”, the luxury milk chocolate egg has been flavoured with the bubbly tipple as well as a hint of raspberry and blackcurrant, and a dash of salt.

But it doesn’t just taste great, it looks the part too.

The chocolate treat, which took M&S Easter egg developer, Katy Patino, more than a year to perfect, is made using glittery pink cocoa and features a hand-decorated swirly design.

The best part? The eggs won’t break the bank, costing just £5 each.

Speaking of the launch, Patino said: “I absolutely love the new and on-trend Proseggo Egg.

“We’ve infused luxury milk chocolate with raspberry, blackcurrant and Prosecco for a delicate flavour with floral notes.”

The Proseggo has been met with delight on social media, with many users praising the supermarket for creating an Easter egg that means they can finally enjoy the best of both worlds - chocolate and Prosecco – simultaneously.

“When life combines two of your favourite things a Proseggo Egg is born, and I’m down for that,” one person wrote on Twitter.

Another added: “You know people are gonna want one of these ‘Proseggo’ (Prosseco infused) eggs from @marksandspencer #M&S for £5! Very impressive and creative!”

M&S isn’t the only retailer selling alcohol-infused eggs this easter. Prestat is currently selling a sparkling wine-infused offering.

However, it is slightly more expensive costing £18 from Ocado.

The milk chocolate egg is made with pink popping candy and comes a handful of truffles that are infused with Prosecco and a dark ganache centre.
