Where in the world are you? Did you find chocolate eggs where you are? How did you find them?

It was easy to find them here in Munich, Germany where I am. I just had to walk 10 meters to the supermarket where there are shelves full of them. Reply to this

Not so here in Peru Mel, have had some Irish and English pals had a wee look for them but its just not a "thing" here, Since I recently got some lovely tea a chocolate egg would be a nice treat, alas......... Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate. Reply to this

We got given chocolate eggs as part of our dessert whilst having dinner in Dubai. I took a picture too. I'll post it on this thread once I've finished my blog. Reply to this

I was in Barcelona, along with the many other thousands of tourists, and didn't spot many Easter eggs at all. Maybe if I had ventured to a supermarket I may have. Saturday was a unique experience given it was St Jordi day...everywhere you looked you could see vendors selling roses and books. Reply to this

No we were not in Paris on Easter but I would love to do that. I'll have to add it to the list.

In the states they paint the hard boiled eggs with a variety of colors and hide them for the kids to find. Reply to this

We used to paint hard-boiled eggs for Easter as kids. Nowadays it's all chocolate - and an increasing variety of hot cross buns :-P

I got way too many painted, hard-boiled eggs. I hate them. As kids we used to paint them, but you can also buy them in the shops already painted. Luckily, I got some chocolate eggs as well, but not the fanciest ones.

In my region here in Germany we have a special type of sweet, lemony bun that you can only get on Easter. I have no idea why, and less than 50km away they've never heard of it. Reply to this

I was in the UK for Easter and bought a load of Cadburys cream and caramel eggs back. I gave them out to friends from other countries who'd never experienced them before, and enjoyed some myself. Reply to this
