    This one is rather small & just plain Easter egg chocolate.
  3. Traditionally children wake up early on Easter Sunday to search the house for their hidden Easter egg. Some parents make long, complicated treasure searches with many clues.

  4. The egg has this fun lid on the backside

    Some are traditional & other are just weird jokes.
