Right now, malteasers egg. Bought today just because I fancied some thin, crap chocolate (I have some 65% stuff in the cupboard). Would have got a mini eggs one but I'm perturbed by the Cadburys flavour since it changed.

I love malteser egg chocolate.

Didn't finish my post due to egg consumption distracting me.

Anyone else had one yet?

I chuck a couple of Easter eggs in the trolley everytime I go into Asda. They are only a quid.

I've eaten one already.

I haven't succumbed to Easter egg chocolate yet but I've been devouring after eights like there's no tomorrow

YABVU. It's not Easter yet. Stoppit.
People like yourself are the reason we can't just enjoy the season we're in and enjoy the present.
You're why shops start with the Christmas cards in August, and the Mini Eggs the day after Boxing Day.

Those small Lindt eggs and bunnies are going to be my undoing. I ate 5 in one go the other night. I've lost a load of weight and I'm meant to be trying to keep it off.

Lmao! Picturing 5 little bells from the bunny massacre.

Soubriquet after eights fall into the thin choc addiction go sho!

glitterazi DD found the tinsel box and started decorating with it last week. You would be at a loss in our house!

I've already polished off a full bag of Hema dark chocolate mini-eggs. I used to like Divine dark choc mini-eggs best, but they've made them bigger, which paradoxically means they aren't as nice because you have to bite them in half, and they aren't then the right shape to melt on your tongue. Also Hema are a third of the price.

OnHold I forgot to acknowledge your sterling egg collecting. I'm glad I'm not the only one cracking in to one.

ArcheryAnnie I hate it when they change stuff. DH still hasn't gotten over what they did to Refreshers.

I started eating Easter eggs on Boxing Day. ! Co-op beside me had them.
Usually buy a bag of mini eggs each week and a few creme eggs.

MiddleClassProblem Sun 26-Feb-17 16:59:35

I had a bag of mini eggs on 28th Dec but I don't really count them as you Easter as you can get them in pick n mixes all year round plus they are more like snack chocolate than occasion chocolate like an Easter egg if that makes sense. More like a bag of malteasers or whispa bites

My dh took our dd shop and ended up sharing an Easter egg with her... She's 3 his argument was cheaper than a bag of chocolate and she's only little she doesn't understand....
I was more pissed that he didn't think to save me any lol.

YANBU to eat an Easter egg but YABVU to not be eating a Cadburys one.

welshmist Sun 26-Feb-17 17:06:02

I must be a bad mama, I buy son those mini galaxy eggs because he loves them so much occasionally creme eggs. It is nice to have a mini treat, the big eggs he has at Easter I end up throwing loads away because he loses interest.

Bedsheets4knickers Sun 26-Feb-17 17:12:42

I could muller an Easter egg right now

ShowMePotatoSalad Sun 26-Feb-17 17:13:31

It's literally just chocolate shaped in to an egg for marketing purposes. Get it ett.

MiddleClassProblem Sun 26-Feb-17 18:12:41


Why does it taste better that way?

Cadburys used to be my egg of choice. It seems to have changed. I'm sure I will at some point though.

viques Sun 26-Feb-17 18:24:27

Of course not. I am currently scarfing down a hot cross bun. I refuse to eat them out of season as it were but reckon it is close enough now to Easter, or even to Exeter as my spell check suggested....

In marks and spencer yesterday I saw they had a sort of hot cross loaf, This is a step in the right direction for those of us who would be happy to eat a toasted buttered fruity spiced bun with a random squiggle of whatever it is on top at any time of year but think the HCB should be kept as a seasonal treat. HCB manufacturers please take note. Shame hot squiggle bun doesn't have much appeal as a name.

MiddleClassProblem Sun 26-Feb-17 18:27:14

Yeah, M&S sell their HCBs all year but not seen the loaf. Must tell DH as he loves them.

You're right it's March this week.

Don't forget your pancakes on Tuesday!

I've bought my niece a pink Troll "egg" and a Disney Frozen white chocolate castle (Both from M&S) and they've been sat in a kitchen cupboard for a couple of weeks; I am so tempted to open them, they look lovely but it would be childish to open them and then I'd have to spend £15 to replace. Temptation!

MiddleClassProblem Sun 26-Feb-17 18:35:04

Get a cheaper one and eat it. DOOO IT!

You're very early with buying one as a gift! I'm impressed. Are you an early Christmas shopper too?
