Finding that special something for someone special in your life can be hard. Valentines Day, Mothering Sunday and the same is true for Easter.
That is why we created the Real Easter Egg Special Edition.
This year, inside the Special Edition, you will find a simple guide to Easter and an olive wood holding cross keyring from Bethlehem made by Palestinian Christians. On top of that we have used extra special Fairtrade Belgian milk Chocolate (35% cocoa) to make the meaningful orange chocolate bar and the large chocolate egg also included in the box.
It is also free from Palm Oil.

About the olive wood holding cross
Each 7cm by 4cm holding cross is uniquely handmade by a Palestinian Christian cooperative in Bethlehem, the place where Jesus was born. Jesus would have been familiar with olive trees which provided essential oil for lighting and medicine. It usually takes 150 years before the branches of the trees can be used for wood carving. The olive tree is mentioned in the Easter story as the arrest of Jesus took place on the Mount of Olives. Holding a olive wood cross in your hand is a visceral way of connecting to and reflecting on the Easter story.
For centuries, people have used holding crosses in different ways. They can be used as a comforting reminder of God's love or as a cue to pray for those we know who need our thoughts and prayers. It can be carried personally, placed in the house or passed on to a friend.
