The Real Easter Egg 2016 has had a redesign!
The Easter egg that tells the Easter story
This year The Real Easter Egg range has had a makeover and each single boxed egg includes a unique copy of the Easter story in the shape of a pull out 37 cm high cross illustrated by Helen Cann.
The Original milk chocolate egg includes images of spring and three crosses on the box with Mark’s resurrection text under the lid. It also includes a Fairtrade milk chocolate Yummy Bar.
The Special Edition egg this year comes with an olive wood holding cross keyring from Bethlehem and an orange milk chocolate bar.
Tastes good and does good
The Real Easter Egg remains the only Fairtrade chocolate Easter egg to have an Easter story booklet in the box and to make a charitable donation from sales.
Since its launch in 2010, the number of Real Easter Eggs sold has been rising. The volume of sales means that production of Fairtrade chocolate has had to be moved from Europe to the UK. This is a great success story which churches and schools have played a part in making happen. In addition more than £200,000 has been donated to charitable and educational causes.
