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

How utterly ridiculous.


bigbadbarry Tue 05-Mar-13 15:03:06

Come on, clue 2! <over excited>

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 05-Mar-13 17:04:11

The second clue has been added in the OP, up there ^^^^ grin

InMySpareTime Tue 05-Mar-13 17:10:21

Thank you, 2 found (I had to open the mobile site for that one!)

Blatherskite Tue 05-Mar-13 17:11:28

I didn't even know there was such a topic!!

BeCool Tue 05-Mar-13 17:15:35

I had to google Brine & jenny smile

BTW those Cadbury spoonyeggs are blimmin lovely (as opposed to spooney fuckers)!

2 down grin

DS guessed the word last night, on the basis of one letter. He is still on track with two!

Becool I did too blush

TaggieCampbellBlack Tue 05-Mar-13 17:47:29

Me too grin

Still, a frisson of excitement to find the egg.

500internalerror Tue 05-Mar-13 18:17:03

Yep, ha d guessed today... Unless they've been very clever & created a big red herring?!

TheOneWithTheHair Tue 05-Mar-13 18:21:16

Got it! I had to google too.

Pascha Tue 05-Mar-13 18:40:12

I don't get clue 2 at all hmm Even googling the references are too obscure for me.

Rosa Tue 05-Mar-13 19:43:10

I hope that the end answer is not going to be a really obvious one .

loubielou31 Tue 05-Mar-13 19:43:33

Pascha Google "Brine and Jenny Darling" You should get it then.
Tom's ready meals makes sense now.

I think I've guessed the word too and I'm also still on track with tonight's letter.

Cherrybright Tue 05-Mar-13 22:06:17

Thankyou loubielou!! I was so confused before i read your hint smile

Pascha Tue 05-Mar-13 22:26:00

smile you learn something new every day., Thanks loubielou.

iMe Tue 05-Mar-13 22:49:21

This has me craving chocolate now... So much for my healthy eating plangrin

mistlethrush Wed 06-Mar-13 04:46:39

I've worked out the letters from the topics - but I go to the topics and I can't seen anything - have I disabled something so that its not showing? (I'm on the computer, so not viewing via mobile)

mrs2cats Wed 06-Mar-13 08:47:20

mistlethrush, I'm on a computer too and I see the egg and spoon and the Cadbury logo once I've clicked on to the relevant topic and I view all the conversations. It's at the top of the page on the right hand side next to the Advanced Search box.

mistlethrush Wed 06-Mar-13 09:25:22

Mrs2cats, thanks for that... I'm not sure where I was thinking it was going to turn up, but it wasn't there blush

mummywithnosleep Wed 06-Mar-13 10:22:26

Ah christ

Can I see the egg on the Mobile site as I'm computer less today?

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 06-Mar-13 10:26:12

mummywithnosleep you can see the eggs on the mobile site, just not on the app.

mummywithnosleep Wed 06-Mar-13 10:27:50

Isitme1 Wed 06-Mar-13 12:55:16
