Scroll down to buy the egg that shares the Easter story
Out of the 80 million Easter eggs sold in this part of the world every year, The Real Easter Egg is the only one which has an Easter story book in the box, is made of Fairtrade chocolate and supports charitable projects.
The Easter Story
This year the Easter story-activity book, included in the Original milk and dark egg, is A5 in size and has 24 pages. The drawings are beautiful and will delight children and adults. The book is illustrated by award winning artist Martina Peluso and contains the story of the first Easter along with some fun activities. Over its 24 pages, the story covers the final week of the life of Jesus and includes the events of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
The Real Easter Egg was launched in 2010. It was a real struggle as all the supermarkets turned it down at first. It was left to churches and church schools to place orders and fund The Meaningful Chocolate Company to begin making The Real Easter Egg. To date, we have sold more than one million eggs with 750,000 of these sent through the post directly to churches and schools.
Not only has there been an increase in Fairtrade chocolate sales, but nearly £250,000 has been donated to charity as a result.
