An Easter celebration.....


The question was posed yesterday by Ciel in Versailles 'should I really be showing chocolate on Good Friday', the resounding response was yes.. because chocolate is a universally acceptable food group and an everyday necessity (or is that just me :). Seriously the deeper meaning of Easter is not lessened by the presence of chocolate, rather the giving of Easter eggs is a token and a way of bringing families together to celebrate, surely that can only be seen as a positive. Aimee took the above shot of these little beauties that are only available here in Australia at this time of the year, as a self confessed chocoholic I stay away from temptation as much as possible :( The Cadbury Creme Egg (read it and drool!) manufactured in UK and Canada are widely available but not apparently in the USA because there Hershey rule the market, oh la! you don't know what you're missing! Whether you indulge or not, I hope your Easter is all that you hope for, take care and stay safe.....

  3. Mmmmmm, I feel the loss! We stocked up on UK-only goodies the last trip and there was a LOT of Cadbury involved (it was meant to last at least a month and was mostly gone within a week:) In fact, I've grown so unaccustomed to these creme eggs, they now hurt my teeth when I bite them - eek, terrible development for a chocoholic! Have a very safe and Happy Easter, Grace!

  4. Creme eggs are one of the worlds greatest ever inventions... better than space flight, electricity - OK I'm being over the top but they are wonderful.
    Happy Easter to you and your family Grace.

  7. I bought a pack of them yesterday but haven't eaten them yet. There has been a really cute series of TV commercials for them here - they are only sold for a short time each year here as well.

  10. And how on earth did you know that Cadbury's creme eggs are some of my favourites despite the fact that my teeth always hurt after eating some????? More chocolate to come on Easter Sunday on VDP, you're going to love it (I think!). Happy Easter weekend (lundi is a holiday, it's good to have a 3 day weekend!)

  11. Chocolate is not an indulgence, it's a basic requirement of life! And it tastes ever so good!

  12. I have always loved my chocolate - Easter is usually an excuse to indulge without guilt. But in recent years, I seem to eat less chocolate in the summer - and eat by habit rather than craving! This year, I didn't even wander round the Easter chocolate displays, meticulously choosing the most desirables. But I am sure the cravings will step up a few notches when the cooler weather settles in. But now you mention those creme eggs... and the shops are open on Easter Saturday...and it's cooler today...hmmm...what time is it now?

  13. Chocolate is from the fun food group and a necessary part of life. Have a wonderful holiday.

  14. I object strongly to Easter being commercialised in this manner.
    So I have taken many Easter eggs (especially Cream Eggs) prisoner and intend to execute them.

  17. One never need apologize for picturing chocolate, for singing about chocolate, for drooling over chocolate! Happy Easter to you!

  18. That's fabulous food photography - wonderful color and DOF. I'm a weirdo - I actually don't like chocolate - but I enjoy the richness of the picture.

  20. Oh, my. You could place them right here, they´d be there next Easter.
    I so don´t like sweets.
    But before you say, "oh, lucky you": Pizza, Crisps and all have calories, too ;-)
    Happy Easter, have such an egg for free on me?

  21. OMG OMG OMG!!!!! I LOVE them!!! Been many years since I last had one.
    OK, I confess: I never stopped at just one. One box, yes, the bigger, the better.

  29. Oh yes, we can get Cadbury Creme Eggs here. We have a store called World Market that specializes in products sold in other countries. So around this time of year, these beauties show up. Thank goodness they carry the mint or orange flavored Kit Kats all year! Happy Easter.

  31. Chocolate, especially GOOD chocolate is an universal pleasure. What better way than to celebrate new live and growth particularly if it doesn't include the hips.

  35. La symbolique des oeufs est très intéressante. Un grand oeuf en bois laqué, avec, écrit à la main, cette histoire de l'oeuf. Cette vitrine avec le texte est maintenant aux oubliettes. En attente d' utiliser le bois pour autre chose, autre décoration. Rien ne se perd dans mon atelier !

    Mais je pourrais relever le texte et le publier aux prochaines Pâques ! C'est une idée.

    The egg symbol is very interesting. un big laque wood egg, with hand righting , history of egg, is know waiting to be use for other purpose, other décoration. Nothing loose in my studio. But, I could take the texte for another Ester on my blog... next year ! That an idea !

  36. Cadbury have just about become synonomous with Easter. I hope you enjoyed your share of Cadbury over the past few days.

  37. Bonjour,
    Hope you had a good Easter. I also agree that chocolate should be a daily necessity. Amazing that you can have Cadbury's creme eggs in Australia, especially if only manufactured in the UK and Canada! I discovered them when I lived in the UK and never understood why people would enjoy the too sweet and weird thick yellow sugar stuff in the middle....But except for creme eggs, J'adore Cadbury's and I buy a huge tablet of dairy fruits and nuts when I visit the UK now and then (about once every 2 years). I think what I prefer the most from Cadbury's products is the "Flake" that you can find on vanilla ice-cream. A bientôt.
