To celebrate the launch of Cadbury's new kids' Easter treat, Egg n Spoon, we have a fun filled Easter Egg (n Spoon) Hunt for you to take part in...

We've hidden seven eggs around the site for you to find and the clues are posted below to help you find them.

Each egg is hidden on a specific (and different) MN Talk board (if you're not familiar with them all - and there are LOTS of them - you may want to click on the Topics A-Z link here). And the first letter of the name of that board is the letter you're after. So, if the clue leads you to the Weaning Talkboard, the letter you need is W.

Collect all 7 letters, unscramble them and you'll end up with a word. All you then have to do is submit the word on the competition form here to be in with a chance of winning a family trip to Cadbury World or one of twenty Cadbury Easter treats.

Oh, and you're welcome to help each other out with the clues but, if you guess the final word, please don't post it here. That would spoil the fun, eh?

Here are the clues:

Day 1: Hmmmm, Betty or Evie? How to choose...

Day 2: Where you chat about Tom's ready meals, and what Brine and Jenny Darling have been up to?

Day 3: The place to go when you have POAS and had a positive experience

Day 4: Slightly trickier one today: we're looking for the first letter of a likely acronym-only reply to any thread on our most famously straight-talking talk topic

Day 5: The place to find recommendations if your holiday plans are Old-Blighty-based

Day 6: Good tips for trips that'll have you back home by bedtime?

Day 7: Where to go for a cuppa, a biscuit and a _

Here's the link to the competition form again:

Thanks and good luck,


NB Due to tech ishoos we've had to move the position of all the eggs on the talk pages. They are all still there, if you can't see them look lower grin

Ooh, what fun!

I never go on that board, but have just wasted spent 15 mins perusing a subject I never knew I had an opinion on!

It's an egg hunt for us, yay.
Am I looking for the Cadbury's egg and spoon at the top of the list of threads in that topic (in which case I found it) or is it more subtle?

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 04-Mar-13 16:16:42

loubielou31 yes that's the egg you're looking for. We didn't want to make it too hard wink

Cheddars Mon 04-Mar-13 16:17:44

So is the 1st letter the 1st letter of the topic name? Or do we need to hunt through the topic threads themselves? easily confused blush

Cheddars Mon 04-Mar-13 16:21:28

Ah yes, I've got it now. Game on! grin

Of course, some of us can't get to Cadbury World...but we'll take the chocolate!

Game on indeed...

There's no egg and spoon on the app. Do I need to turn on the "big computer"?

TaggieCampbellBlack Mon 04-Mar-13 18:17:14

Are there daily clues?
