We all have a sweet tooth in our house and are big fans of yummy chocolate. Milk chocolate probably tops the wishlist, preferably Thorntons. We also all love running, so what nicer treat than chocolate after a good work out? fruit first of course!
I was over the moon when I was asked if Thorntons could send me a selection of their Easter eggs. Me chocolate? Thorntons! Oh yes, please. With all the fuss around doing London marathon and staying in London last week, I was a bit low on our usual Easter stockpile. A good start to Easter week then with a delivery of goodies.
I love their chocolate and my lovely husband (in case he is reading) often treats me to something from their range. When we first met years and years ago, as a special treat he used to buy me a bag of their rum truffles. Now my treats on special occasions have turned into a nice big a box of continental chocolate, yes I am greedy!! My husband knows a way to make me smile is through Irregular Choice shoes or Thorntons chocolate, fact 🙂
At Easter all of our 4 children still love receiving Easter eggs, even my eldest son who is nearly 20, loves them. Then again who doesn’t?!. Our family tradition is every Easter Sunday they wake dad up and ask him to hide all the eggs, all named up and then they spend ages trying to find all of their own. There are always a few eggs that do not get found for hours, wait too long and Dad eats them!! The kids start panicking searching everywhere, the shed, the washer, the cooker. Eventually, all is well, they all have their own pile of eggs. They then do swaps trying to get their favourites.
Looking back I was about 5 or 6 when my first memories of Easter come to mind. Thorntons was a big part of that. My Grandma buying me Easter eggs from Thorntons. She worked for them and would always proudly give me an Easter egg from the shop. I remember how cool it was, receiving an egg which always had my name on it. No one could touch my egg, this was Claire’s egg. This was special, this was a Thorntons Egg…
About this post-
I got sent a selection of Easter treats for the purpose of this post. I was not paid for this post and all thoughts are my own honest opinion.
