NOW CLOSED Win a trip to Cadbury World and other choccy treats: can you find the hidden word in our Talk Topic Easter Egg (n Spoon) Hunt?

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

I nearly bought some today but the vanilla stuff looked there one with choc inside?

MakeItUpAsYouGoAlong Mon 04-Mar-13 20:14:21

I love these

PenguinBear Mon 04-Mar-13 20:23:33

I don't think it works on the app!?

everydayaschoolday Mon 04-Mar-13 20:41:10

I'm in!

MimsyBorogroves Mon 04-Mar-13 20:42:24

giraffes - yes, there's a chocolate mousse one. It's a bit sickly, but still nice.

I've got day 1 cracked. And all the other smashing yolks possible.

MerryCouthyMows Mon 04-Mar-13 20:45:18

Can you see the egg & spoon on the App? Because I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but I see nothing...

Rosa Mon 04-Mar-13 21:16:15

Merry I am with you....but can't access the big computer ...or maybe I am being thick...

cinnamongreyhound Mon 04-Mar-13 21:49:37

I've only tried the vanilla one and they are yummy!

Definitely give the game a go smile

ohforfoxsake Mon 04-Mar-13 22:26:17

So do we have to trawl through the posts on this thread to find the clue or will it be obvious? Only this thread might get busy over 7 days and I'm lazy.

JengaBlock Mon 04-Mar-13 22:30:02

I can see the egg, but no letter?

JengaBlock Mon 04-Mar-13 22:30:49

Oh wait, I am being dim. It is the first letter of the board name. Duh!

TheFutureMrsB Tue 05-Mar-13 00:34:11

Ahhh I get it now!

INeverSaidThat Tue 05-Mar-13 01:22:04

Come on, I am waiting,

Where's the next clue?'s Tuesday already grin

EverythingIsTicketyBoo Tue 05-Mar-13 07:06:03

EduCated Tue 05-Mar-13 07:43:21

Ooh, marking me place.

EduCated Tue 05-Mar-13 07:43:41

Oh and I can see the egg on the mobile site.

TheOneWithTheHair Tue 05-Mar-13 08:11:12

I'm in too. I'll probably forget by day 3 though. grin

MTBMummy Tue 05-Mar-13 08:38:11

Is it sad that I'm quite eggcited by the prospect of this?

Isitme1 Tue 05-Mar-13 09:25:58

Marking place smile

Cheddars Tue 05-Mar-13 09:59:12

Stop marking places please. I might miss the next clue. [bossy face]

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 05-Mar-13 10:06:51

Hi all, unfortunately the eggs aren't visible on the app but you can see them on the mobile site.

Clues will be added at different times each day, they'll be added to the OP and we'll comment to let you know when the next one is up.

Good luck grin

mrs2cats Tue 05-Mar-13 10:21:59

But we're all excited and keen! grin

Caitycat Tue 05-Mar-13 11:18:29

Marking place, give me the chocolate (for my baby of course...)

Pascha Tue 05-Mar-13 11:28:26
