Sainsbury’s and Asda won’t stock Christian Easter egg – but they DO put halal ones on their shelves

Two of the big four supermarkets have declined to join their rivals in selling a Christian Easter egg that tells the story of Jesus.

Sainsbury’s has refused to stock the Real Easter Egg, which comes with a booklet explaining the significance of eggs during Christianity’s most important festival, while the company that makes it says Asda has ignored its approaches.
