“When it’s your turn, you will have 10 minutes to access the site. Thank you for your understanding. “

It is not clear when the site will be operational again and whether all orders have been stopped because there are no more eggs.

Buyers on Twitter go wild over how the site has stopped taking orders.

Ella wrote, “I spent an hour today in an online queue to access the Cadbury website to buy Easter eggs for my family.

“If that doesn’t sum up life in quarantine, I don’t know what’s going on. “

Kelsey said, “Smoking that I had been waiting in the queue for 20 hours last night to access the Cadbury Direct page to be notified that they had reached their maximum orders for the day,

“It’s been seven hours of waiting for all this stuff. Smoking is not the word. “

And Paul wrote, “Cadbury Gifts Direct is no longer taking orders online.

“Let it penetrate what people have become. “

Chocolate makers are behind some of the biggest confectionery brands, such as Dairy Milk, Creme Egg and Crunchie.

The website collapsed under demand in the week before Easter, as many households try to order their chocolate eggs online to avoid leaving the house during coronavirus isolation measures.

Cadbury chocolate and Easter eggs are available for purchase at supermarkets such as Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons.

But many buyers are struggling to book in retail slots because many have sold weeks in advance.

This means that those who have finally managed to book a delivery slot would see their Easter eggs arriving too late for Sunday celebrations.

Those who can leave the house can pick up the treats at their local supermarket.

If you can’t leave your house, you’ll be happy to know that you can still buy them from Amazon Fresh, although there aren’t many options left.

A large Wispa or Oreo egg will cost you £ 4, while a giant cream treat will cost you £ 6.

Amazon Fresh is the retailer’s grocery service and Prime members can get a 30-day free trial, otherwise it costs £ 3.99 per month.

Le Soleil contacted Cadbury for a comment.

Cadbury is not the only retailer to have had to adopt an online queue system.

Last weekend, thousands of Boots buyers were queued for more than an hour just to access its website.

Morrisons shoppers also complained that they had waited up to an hour to access the supermarket’s website.
