    How should you eat your Easter egg?

    This is going to settle a dispute between my wife and I.

    You can probably guess which side each of us is on.

    You should have quantities of small ones and organise an Easter egg hunt. Actually, I reckon the best thing is to have a secret stash and nibble them out of sight of everyone else.

    I tried to do that but I'm monitored! Monitored I tells ya!

    Only had the one egg anyway... and little egglets that came with it. :(

    BTW, very glad to see I have 100% support so far!

    I'm struggling to think of any food that shouldn't be eaten all in one big greedy blowout.

    In a oner. That type of chocolate goes horrible if you leave it too long.

    My Finnish friend says Easter Eggs over there are solid. SOLID!

    In fact, you get more chocolate at a better price if you buy a slab or a box of chocs. Then you can get twice as much and, if you're careful, better quality. Easter eggs, especially the hollow ones, have a thimbleful of choc in them. Or a massive Toblerone. One section of that keeps you going for a while.

    In America, we have solid chocolate bunnies - bought one (OK, two) for the toddler (ordered on-line).... my students were shocked when I showed them - I was gobsmacked when I first saw HOLLOW easter bunnies here..... sob!

    Husband would say second option 'small bite-sized bits spread out' and he would make it last more than a week whereas for me 'it would be 'as fast as possible to get temptation out of the way!' ;)

    Mind you I never buy the large (hollow) Easter eggs, just lots of small ones, which are easier to ration oneself with.

    I heard on the radio that it is better for your teeth to scoff the lot and then let the PH in your mouth return to normal. If you keep nibbling then you will keep producing acid and rotting your teeth.

    I like to delay my gratification - so a bit at a time and therefore lasting for a week or two. HOWEVER, in reality, I have to do the greedy blow-out as I learnt, to my cost many years ago, that Klutzonthesofa will eat my carefully rationed stash. Blimmin' twazzock

    All in one greedy blowout of course. Then when you feel a little peckish, you can pitch some from the person who rations theirs over a week. You snooze, you lose.

    While eggs are poor value if measured by volume of chocolate there's something special about the shape and the snap when you break them apart that makes it all worth it.

    I am not that keen on chocolate.:eek: So I'd definitely go for option 2. With the caveat that I'd give up after a week and chuck what's left in the bin.

    I don't eat chocolate. I thank them politely then share it with a few friends later on. Those who know me tend to buy me sweets though so it's not usually a problem.

    While we're on questions about Easter eggs...

    I've never quite got my head round the business about the Easter bunny. It's a bit like the Tooth Fairy; what's going on there; what's the back-story?

    Someone told me that Easter eggs are made from the Easter bunny's milk. Can that be right?

    I image this bunny is a bunny-cow hybrid.
