Savvy shopper spots Heroes and Celebration tubs on sale at Co-op for just £1.25

PILES of chocolate tubs were spotted at Co-op for just £1.25, an incredible discount of almost 70%.

Large 650g-sized tubs of Celebrations, Heroes and Quality Street were snapped and posted on Facebook forum Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK.

Eagle-eyed shopper Jones Frances captioned the post: "BARGAIN- CO-OP Ruthin".

Yet just a few hours later Jones edited the post with an update: "NOW SOLD OUT".

Co-op has not confirmed whether the deal was available elsewhere, but it appears the amazing offer could only be found in the small north Wales town.

The chocolate tubs popular around Christmas typically cost more than £4 each.

Celebrations tubs at the same size are available on Co-op's website for £4, while the only Heroes – a 290g carton – costs £5.

A 450g pouch of Quality Street costs £3.50 on the Co-op website.

It's the second big bargain Co-op shoppers have bagged in the past week, after Christmas Maltesers bars were found for just 1p.

In both cases, it appears the confectionary shelves are being emptied in favour of Easter offerings.

Comments under Jones's post included jealous group members complaining the tubs were full-priced at their local store.

Lisa Macauley commented that she found tubs the same size for just 88p in the days after New Years.

The cheapest 650g tub of Celebrations is currently to be found at Aldi for £3.99, though they recently ran out of stock for just £1 on Tesco's website.

And your best-value standard Quality Street tub is also at Aldi, costing £3.99 for the 800g tin.

Meanwhile, a 800g gift-sized tub of Heroes is going for £6 from Cadbury Gifts Direct. That's the best offer we could find.
