Are These Easter Ice Creams At Walmart Very Late Or Very Early?

Update: Mystery solved. At this point in the year, we can’t be sure whether an Easter item still on store shelves is early for Easter or just lingering months after the holiday. That’s the mystery of the Mounds Eggs that Micah found on the shelves of a Walmart in Georgia.


He found these just last week, but look at the pretty Easter eggs decorating the package. Are they early? Late? All we know is that coconut ice cream is delicious, so we contacted Walmart. When they let us know, we’ll update you.

The eggs, and their Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg cousins, are clearly marketed for Easter. That much is clear. Is this a case of Easter creep or bad inventory control? It’s Walmart, so really that could go either way.
