For £5 boxes have been spotted piled high in supermarkets across Britain. Mother-of-two Rose O'Keefe, 34, took a photo of Miniature Heroes tubs at her local store in Sevenoaks, Kent. Christmas Quality Street and Roses boxes are also on sale. In a post on Tesco's Facebook page, Mrs O'Keefe wrote: 'As much as I love Christmas and chocolate, surely this is far too early. 'We have Halloween and bonfire night first and not forgetting the children aren't even back at school yet!' A Tesco spokesman said: 'We know some customers like to buy products associated with Christmas earlier in the year, so we're stocking a limited range in some stores.' Customers at Tesco in Chelmsford, Essex have also spotted the chocolates on sale and dozens more have complained on Twitter. Joanne Anderson said: 'I see Tesco has declared it the start of the festive season already. It's TOO SOON for tubs of Christmas chocolates. FFS. 'Bah humbug.' Mark Hardie said: 'With Christmas cards and tins of chocolates already on sale, I may have to dig out last year's bumper @RadioTimes as well!' Megan Jefferson said she is 'so excited' after spotting the chocolates, but George Stephenson doesn't share the sentiment, adding: 'Tesco you have sunk to new lows.'
