BEHOLD, the wondrous Scandinavian* Easter egg!

Was quite shocked when I realised that in some countries, an Easter egg is literally just a big chocolate egg.

  • @BodyInTheThames, can you confirm whether this is what you get across the border as well please?

Mr Cadbury’s Parrot says, “LOL”

I should clarify – this is just a small one that I got at work. The ones we get at home naturally have way more stuff in them. And it’s very exciting cause you don’t know what’s going to be inside!!! !!!

Used to get one of these from the Swedish ex. Loved a bit of Plop with my Kex.

I used to enjoy painting (actual) eggs and putting them on a tree.

I don’t think this is a UK tradition

Yeah we always did this in pre-school and maybe early primary school. Pain the arse having to blow the raw egg out of the egg shell without breaking it though

yeah it always resulted in a few failures

I wonder what we did with the egg itself. maybe made a large omelette or something, though probably just threw them away
