I am not Dropping the EASTER! - Coffee & Conversation

Yes it's an Easter Egg - I am not dropping the EASTER!

What is a chocolate egg without Easter?

We would not have had chocolate eggs if it had not been for Easter.

Now the chocolate companies want to drop the Easter in Easter Egg and just have an egg, will it sell more because it will be seen to be more PC?

But it will not be an Easter Egg to many people.

A few years ago I was introduced to "The Real Easter Egg" which is produced 
by Meaningful Chocolate.

I was attracted to the eggs because of the fact that they are fairtrade and because they don't just provide a chocolate treat for children (and the rest of us) but they have a booklet (new one each year) for the children as well which teaches them about The True Meaning of Easter in an interesting way.

We have bought them for the kids at our church and we have enjoyed them at home.

But the main thing about these eggs is the fact that along with the chocolate egg 
is the Real Meaning of Easter.

When many other Eggs are going to be sitting in our shops this year without the word Easter on them, this is an egg that still proclaims the real meaning of Easter which is the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus who is the only Saviour of the world and the only one by which we have a way to God.

You can read my review of The Real Easter Egg Here.

You can also watch this short video about The Real Easter Egg.

Then why not check out the website here for more info and details of  the other eggs they offer and the shops that stock them but because Easter is early this year orders online need to be in through the site before 6th March to have them delivered on time.

As I said at the start of this post "I am not dropping the EASTER" and this applies to Easter as well as to eggs.  Our special times of the year all seem to changing to "seasons" or  "holidays" now but I'm still a Christmas and Easter supporter and I will not be dropping either.

Yes it's an EASTER Egg! - I am not dropping the EASTER!


  1. Great post! I'm with you. How do those companies think they will sell more by dropping the word Easter. :) It's nice to see a fair trade company that sells them and tells the true meaning!
    Blessings to you, Sandra!

  2. What a great idea that company had! Wish I'd seen this in time to order!

  3. How interesting! I didn't actually even know that people and companies are dropping the word Easter. I'm going to look into this a little more. That Real Easter Egg looks pretty cool, though!

  4. I try to focus on the story of Easter with my kids, and we talk about how an egg symbolizes new life. So we have new life through Christ's sacrifice, and that is why we use eggs in Easter.

  5. I love this, I get so tired of people trying to drop the holiday names, Sorry, but it's Christmas and Easter even if you don't want to celebrate the birth of Christ or His resurrection. Ugh, it really annoys me. Every year for our egg hunt we hide one golden egg that's empty to symbolize the empty tomb, my kids love finding it!

  6. I couldn't agree more! So many people in the UK only think of the chocolate at Easter. It has become an almost secular holiday which makes me so sad!! I definitely won't be dropping the Easter either. Sharing this important post on Twitter! Thank you for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Happy Easter to you and yours!

  7. Sandra, I'm with you. Why drop the Easter off of Easter Eggs? I appreciate you sharing about a company that upholds the true meaning of Easter. I love that they also share the Easter story in book form with a new book each year. And they're fair trade? That's wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing about this company.

    I'm your neighbor at Holley Gerth's place today. Have a wonderful Easter!
