Developed by The Meaningful Chocolate Company, the Real Easter Egg (made from Fair Trade chocolate) is the only chocolate egg to mention Jesus on the box! The egg box tells the Easter story in a colourful visual storyboard. This year the Real Easter Egg also includes a free activity pack in the box which includes the Easter story, activity poster, free iTunes download and a sticker set. The resurrection text from Mark can also be found inside the lid.
Sales of The Real Easter Egg support Traidcraft Exchange, a development charity which supports small-scale farmers and producers in working together, finding markets for their products and trading successfully. In 2011, The Real Chocolate Company gave away more than £21,000.
Each egg costs £3.99. Each Real Easter Egg contains a 125g milk chocolate egg and includes the free activity pack in the box. A 15 pence donation to Traidcraft Exchange is made for each egg sold.
