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?

#2

You’re getting absolutely rinsed there m9


#3

Yeah think I’ll stick to my giant chocolate egg thanks all the same wr.


#4

yup - big cardboard egg filled with sweets/candy/godis


#5

Mr Cadbury’s Parrot says, “LOL”


#6

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!!! !!!


#7

Pretty good, right?


#8

yup

usually this size


#9

More difficult to find a good hiding place for, though


#10

Actually I think I like that more. Can a Scandinavian adopt me pls?


#11

we do the whole hunt & easter dinner thing at my TV’s brothers place, usually 12-18 of us & they have a big garden with lots of bushes & hiding places in watering cans or up in trees and so on

it’s great


#12

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


#13

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

I don’t think this is a UK tradition


#14

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


#15

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
