2017 Real Easter Egg Unveiled

Wednesday January 18

Churches are being asked to get behind the Real Easter Egg, which has its 2017 launch today.

The Real Easter Egg is the only one which shares the Easter story, as well as being made of Fairtrade chocolate and including a charity donation.

It was launched in 2010 by The Meaningful Chocolate Company and so far more than a million have been sold, of which three quarters were direct orders from churches and schools. Over £250,000 has been donated to charity.

Schools are eligible for a 10% discount on a minimum of order of 24 eggs, placed before February 28.
The 2017 range includes a 24-page Easter story-activity book illustrated by Alida Massari in its original, egg hunt and dark editions. There is also a special edition, with an Easter traditions booklet and bar of chocolate; and a sharing box of 30 midi eggs and copies of the Easter story.

This year, the Meaningful Chocolate Company has also introduced boxes of luxury Belgian truffles suitable for Valentine’s Day or Mothering Sunday.

Visit the Real Easter Egg website to see full details of the products, download resources and order (most of the eggs are sold in cases of six; the special edition and sharing box are sold singly). It will also be available in some supermarkets (last year it was in Tesco, Waitrose, Morrisons and larger Co-ops) and independent retailers.
