Easter Eggstravagance - How Many is Too Many?

I went shopping for Easter Eggs this morning and was faced with what seemed like walls of eggs, so many, too many to choose from. Consumers are definitely spoilt for choice these days with all the well-known chocolate brands represented, the artisan egg masterpieces, the novelty shaped chocolate creations, those that come with cups/bowls/plates/cute teddies and of course the many allergy-free varieties. This is what prompted me to google what the average per child is, it is a lot higher than I thought. 

According to this Statista Easter study the average child in the UK consumes 8, yes 8 Easter eggs over just 4 days. Surely I am not the only one surprised/shocked by this fact, am I? I can't imagine my 3 kiddies getting through 24 eggs between them in such a short time.

I would love to know your thoughts on this. How many are you planning on buying your kids or hoping to get?
