Everyone who is anyone I know loves chocolate. I don’t think there is anyone in my family who doesn’t. Easter is a really prominent time for chocolate lovers everywhere and some of my favourites are in the Thorntons Chocolate range.
I have some wonderful memories of Easter over the years and, in particular, times spent at my Grandma and Grandad’s house in Woking, Surrey. It is memories of the doors to the garden finally being open, sunshine, daffodils, Disney Time on the telly and the lovely supply of chocolate eggs given to me by my parents, grandparents and uncles. My favourites were always the ones with extra surprise chocolates or sweets in the middle! There are also memories of the Grand National and of visiting Wales to see my other grandparents which was where we used to have Easter Egg hunts. Lots and lots of happy times.
My Grandma in Woking used to have chocolate moulds and would always make chocolate shapes in the form of bunnies, eggs and chicks. Mum told me the other day that she tried to wash the moulds out recently but they had gone so mouldy (no pun intended!) that she had to throw them away.
I recently made Easter Eggs with Grace and I am hoping to be able to give her the happy memories for this time of year that she can look back on fondly when she is older. We also made some chocolate nests the other day too!
Thorntons are helping to create some wonderful memories for you and your children this Easter with the Harry Hopalot Easter Egg tour. Throughout April, Harry Hopalot will be turning up at Thorntons and Sainsburys stores all over the country, finishing in Southampton on 19th April. He will be there to meet the children – even though he is a bit shy – and there might even be some free chocolate 🙂
If you can’t make a date to meet Harry Hopalot then you can always download an activity sheet and take part in the colouring competition with a chance to win lots and lots of Thorntons chocolate!
