Devon-based retailer Paulette Xavier announced as one of the winners of Cadbury Creme Egg’s ‘Hunt the White Creme Egg’ competition this Easter after one of her shoppers purchased the coveted white chocolate egg.

The competition, with its exclusive prize for convenience stores, returned this year to reward both retailers and their shoppers with cash and vouchers.

Paulette Xavier, the manager of Central Convenience Store in Devon, said: “We are so happy to have won this amazing prize from the Cadbury Creme Egg ‘Hunt the White Creme Egg’ competition. It’s fantastic news and we are all so excited. It’s really given us a lift – we will certainly enjoy spending our vouchers. In fact we’re all going to go out for a meal to celebrate!”
