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

Doubletroublemummy2 Sun 17-Mar-13 00:02:55

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 15-Mar-13 14:28:12

MissRee PM me with the answer you think it is and I'll update your entry.

MissRee Fri 15-Mar-13 13:08:01

Noooooooooooooo I entered the wrong word and now I know the right word it won't let me add it again sad How can I enter with the right word, MNHQ????

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Wed 13-Mar-13 21:55:58

I did, thanks Blathers, I've replied. x

Blatherskite Wed 13-Mar-13 16:01:55

Didn't you get my PM Hec?

ChaoticisasChaoticdoes Wed 13-Mar-13 15:44:32

grin Hecsy

I managed to get the word with 6 out of the 7 letters, cos I couldn't get number 2. I also managed to get the wrong letter for number 4 originally but realised what I'd done when rereading clue 4. What that says about my brain I have no idea.

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Wed 13-Mar-13 15:25:59


I am a dozy bloody wazzock.

I'm sitting there, looking at these random letters thinking what the hell. That's not a word. I even looked at the acronyms list to see if it meant anything.

Then I reread the OP.

You have to rearrange the bloody letters.

Oh. My. God.

If I had half a brain, I'd really be something.

ChaoticisasChaoticdoes Wed 13-Mar-13 15:25:17

This will explain why I keep seeing eggs everywhere.

ICBINEG Wed 13-Mar-13 12:25:26

Although it could have been a bit more cryptic....not up to the standard of the listener crossword at all... <thank god>

ICBINEG Wed 13-Mar-13 12:23:36

woot just found this! Thanks for the 15 mins distraction from work MN...reliable as ever grin

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Wed 13-Mar-13 10:45:14

I've got all the letters, seen all the eggs.
Its just the collection of letters is meaningless to me!

cinnamongreyhound Wed 13-Mar-13 09:44:55

Suppose it is smile

Blatherskite Wed 13-Mar-13 09:35:10

It's not a word you'd find in a dictionary Hec.

I found an anagram maker helped....

EdwiniasRevenge Wed 13-Mar-13 09:29:43

Surely it is yabu or yanbu...

cinnamongreyhound Wed 13-Mar-13 09:13:12

Don't forget the AIBU is the answer Y/N not A. Does that help?

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Wed 13-Mar-13 07:11:11

<wails> but it doesn't make a wooooooord !!

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Wed 13-Mar-13 07:05:23

ok. I have clearly done this wrong because I don't have a word! Yet I found all the eggs. [baffled]
