Happy Easter!

It's here, I've just stuffed all the chocolate down my throat and now wishing I hadn't, there's no traditional easter films on TV (or anything original other than repeats of top gear on dave for that matter) but easter is here again so..:
Happy Easter!

Re: Happy Easter!

Just a little question...
I really miss having the bag of whichever chocolates inside the egg these days. When and why did they stop doing that?

Re: Happy Easter!

Cadbury caramel eggs are my favourite.
Goes against my principles to be buying them after the firm moved to America and failed to keep certain promised made to the British workers.

Re: Happy Easter!

@ Mav, If there is any fillin these days it is in a separate carton and not inside the egg.
@gleneagles, I'm with you about Cadbury's. I avoid their products if I can.

Re: Happy Easter!

@artmo Hence my question.. When and why did they start doing that?
Now it seems extremely difficult to break an egg in half to share without it shattering Undecided

I love Cadburys chocolate as its got that taste that just can't be beaten. What I don't like however is the way they've shrunk the bars. Anyone noticed the height of them recently? Caramel and Dairy Milk used to be a lot taller than they are now. They've made them thinner in order to keey the width and length the same to make it look like the same size. The small eggs have shrunk over the years too but because we only see them once a year most folks don't notice.
I must admit though, since the takeover of Cadburys, I've also gone off them a bit. While I still enjoy the taste, there isn't that pride in Cadburys that there once was. Now its an american company just trying to suck as much profit out of our island as possible whereas once it used to be about making the nicest british chocolate possible. They've even been tinkering with their recipes since the takeover too. I have actually seen an internal document that Cadburys sent to one of its distributors about this when I complained about one of their products. Cadbury refused to comment on this directly to me when I confronted them about it. Unfortunately british pride means nothing in this country anymore especially to americans.

The Aldi's "flame egg" is nice. Heavy thick chocolate in separately foiled halves containing inside them a decent size bag of really good quality chocolates. For example a marzipan centre with a whole roasted almond speckled with sugar crystals on top.
I hope we all have a happy (but cold) Easter.
I'm almost sure I was walking along a beach this time last year.

Hopefully I'll be walking along the beach tomorrow.  Leaving in an hour for Heathrow and flying to Florida. Smiley Smiley
