Perhaps I shouldn’t reveal my age…but I can remember my first Cadbury Creme Egg the year they came out in Canada – what an Easter surprise that was! This year Cadbury is doubling the pleasure by partnering up with Peter Rabbit, another childhood classic, and in cinemas now.
This post is in sponsorship with Cadbury who have kindly sent us a package of Easter goodies that will keep the whole family happy, and with the inclusion of an adorable Peter Rabbit stuffed bunny, the memories of this Easter will live on into the future!
Over the past several years Cadbury has been expanding their range of Easter treats and each year we have a new favourite. Easter without Cadbury just wouldn’t be the same; it’s one of the comforts of home to me since I’ve been away. As an added bonus this year, you have the chance to win 1 of 5 family adventure holidays or other Peter Rabbit prizes should you find a winning ticket inside promotional packs.
Everyone’s favourite item from this bundle is indeed, Peter Rabbit himself. Personally, I’d rather give a gift that will be remembered rather than gone in an instant, and this little guy takes care of that. In fact, he reminds me of Tristan’s first Easter; he arrived home from the neonatal ward just in time – and each day that he was there, I read him one of the Peter Rabbit tales from a collection I’d ordered before he was born.
Now the tradition lives on with Kallista who claimed Peter as her new best bunny and has been introducing him to the neighbourhood. He’s small enough to fit into a large pocket or a backpack, too so he can go on plenty of adventures. I can picture Kallista taking Peter Rabbit in her sling to the library and shops to show off; she loves to do that. Peter’s well-made and his jacket is sewn right onto him with just the front flaps being loose so that it won’t be lost along the way. His eyes and nose are embroidered so there isn’t a danger of choking. If someone you know has a newborn, this would be the perfect gift: chocolate for the parents and a cuddly keepsake for the baby. Of course, as you can see, the Peter Rabbit gift pack is also perfect for anyone of any age with a love of this classic story (also available is a Flopsy Rabbit pack)
This was the final prize in our Easter egg hunt…and where do you think it was hiding? Right by the tales of Peter Rabbit, of course!
Where else were prizes hidden for the family to find?
They could be anywhere! But this year they could be found behind that sofa cushion, or in a bike helmet…
Wait a minute! That’s not all….let’s go out side and see what we can see….
Where could more Easter eggs be hidden?
If you want a selection of goodies for your Easter egg hunt, try the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt Super Pack (RRP £6.99) which has a tasty array of treats such as Cadbury Dairy Milk hollow eggs, Cadbury Mini Eggs, and Cadbury Dairy Milk bunnies; it’ll make your Easter egg hunt hoppin’ fun.
I spy a mini Cadbury Creme Egg! And over by the wise old owl is an Oreo Easter egg!
How fun was that hunt? But the fun’s not over yet! Oh no! Let’s have use the Oreo Easter eggs and Dairy Milk mousse eggs for an old-fashioned egg and spoon race. I think Tristan and Kallista may need a little more practice with this…but they had a lot of fun, and that’s the whole point!
These cute cartons with four eggs in each even come with two spoons just to use for an Egg ‘n’ Spoon race! How cool is that!
We have egg and spoon races back in Canada, but it wasn’t until I arrived in the UK that I’d heard about Easter egg rolling. There are Cadbbury Easter Egg hunts across the UK in conjunction with the National Trust for children, but we’re a little more relaxed this year and used a nearby hill to practice. Obviously, Cadbury eggs do a great job at this!
After a morning of Easter egg hunting, running, and rolling it’s time for a break! It wasn’t just us who had fun, either; the neighbours were watching the children and being entertained as well. It’s always a good thing when you see smiles on others’ faces.
Three guesses what was for snack time on this day?
Yes, that’s right…we sampled some Cadbury eggs!
Our favourite new item are the Egg ‘n’ Spoon eggs. They are formed so that using the little spoon that’s included in the carton, you can easily ‘cut’ open the top of the egg and then scoop out the deliciousness inside. It’s a great idea, and so much more fun (and tidy) than trying (usually unsuccessfully) to eat a yummy traditional Creme egg; which is a great selling point if you’re not a fan of sticky fingers. Don’t get me wrong, I love a Creme egg, but they’re not something I will dare eat in public. My hint to Cadbury is to design the Creme eggs in this manner and there’ll be no stopping me!
The Oreo Easter eggs are just like rich and creamy ice cream cones without the brain freeze! And I love that the crunchy Oreo cookie bits are nice and crunchy which gives a lovely combination of textures. I was surprised at just how much I loved this egg! I must say it is truly my favourite!
The Dairy Milk Mousse Easter eggs were also so delicious, which was a shock to me. My family knows I’m not a fan of mousse; I keep trying it but I’ve never found one I liked…until now! This mousse is rich and light and I didn’t want to hand it back over to Phil when I tried a little of his. Yum!
Cadbury Mini Eggs are so versatile; in addition to enjoying their crunchy candy exterior before the smooth melt in your mouth chocolate inside, they are also great to use with your Easter baking or table displays. Pick up a bag of these and share them….if you can!
If your little one enjoys chocolate as it is, then they will appreciate the cute little Freddo Faces pack.
To help get your youngsters egg-cited about Easter, Frankie Bridge has released her first storybook, The Tale of The Great Easter Bunny, where Jack and Molly discover mysterious clues that take them on an Easter egg hunt; but what they don’t know is that at the end of their garden is hidden rabbit hole that belongs to none other than….the Easter Bunny! You can download this free book from the Cadbury Easter website.
Cadbury Easter treats come such a large variety of flavours and sizes that there’s something for every budget and taste. And if you’re conscious about the environment, the cardboard and foil can be put in your curbside recycling boxes, so don’t forget to do that and keep the environment healthy and clean. Not to mention that the groovy purple egg cartons could be used for a plethora of crafts.
This has been a sponsored post, but as you can see from the photos, the enjoyment was all ours.
