Sensing that consumers may forgo a traditional Easter dinner to save money that inflation is otherwise eating up, Walmart is offering ingredients for an entire Easter meal for less than $100.

The company did the same last Thanksgiving and says it was such a hit that it’s doing it again. Starting with the cornerstone of every Easter occasion – eggs – the big box retailer said that instead of cutting the prices on eggs, it’s going to lower the cost of other Easter food traditions instead. 

When ConsumerAffairs took a look at Walmart’s Easter deals, it certainly had everything covered. There are essentials of ham, green beans, pie, and 17 fixings in between appetizers and dessert: including pineapple slices, salad dressings, mayo, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, and Cool Whip. 

“At Walmart, our purpose is to help customers save money and live better. We’re committed to keeping prices low, so families can spend less time worrying about the cost of coming together and more time celebrating with their loved ones,” John Laney, Walmart's executive vice president, of Food, said.

“To ensure our customers can do just that, we’re continuing to invest in the moments that matter this year by offering a Walmart-curated Easter meal and Easter basket at last year’s price.”

Not just green beans, either

The promotion is a double-headed deal, too. On top of grocery staples, Walmart is offering an assortment of Easter basket must-haves at last year’s prices.

“With the savings, you can easily assemble an Easter basket packed to the brim with decorative grass, a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bunny, Reese’s Eggs, toys and more, perfect for the little ones,” Laney said.

The new prices are available now both online and in-store and the orders are also available for curbside pickup and delivery. They’ll be good until April 15.
