We’re a household of choccy-lovers so we’re all egg-tremely (sorry) egg-xcited (and again) about Easter coming up and the chance to indulge in chocolate eggs!
The perks of being a blogger’s child means getting to review Easter eggs early! Here we sample (oh it’s a hard life) The Real Easter Egg from online store Traidcraft; a brilliant e-shop that sells fair trade products, helping to fight poverty through fairer wages and better working conditions. The only way to enjoy chocolate in my book.
Don’t you just love that shiny purple wrapping foil, it takes me right back to Willy Wonker-esque childhood.
And the chocolate within is dreamy too, that creamy, silky milk chocolate you just can’t stop eating. Plus, the company donates a sizeable chunk of profit to helps support farmers in developing nations, meaning I can feel less guilty about eating a whole egg in one go (oops)!
Seriously though, this money allows farmers to invest in their community, buying everything from school books and solar panels to providing fresh water.
…We had a lot of fun on this shoot, can you tell?! We even made a little film to capture the unwrapping:
Each egg also comes with a colourful ‘Happy Easter’ banner which we’ve hung in the kitchen and the boys loved the beautifully illustrated book on the reverse side.
Over 80m easter eggs are sold in the UK every year, but this the only one that tells the story of Easter.
A case of six eggs from Traidcraft is £23.94, so it’s great for sharing as presents with loved ones or using for an epic easter egg hunt with the kids!
Whether you’re buying Easter eggs or not, please consider donating to Traidcraft HERE. Thank you.
Have you got your Easter eggs yet?
