1. How Do You Eat A Chocolate Bunny?
Some chocolate bunny trivia for you: did you know that when eating these adorable delights, 76% of people bite off the ears first, 5% go straight for the feet and 4% dive in with the tail?

We might not have chocolate bunnies available for your customers to devour but we do have our adorable Large Rabbit Logobug, which is ready and waiting to have your branding printed on its ribbon.
2. Brits Love Cadbury's Creme Eggs
Arguably one of the most popular chocolate products amongst the British population, the famous Cadbury's Creme Egg (enter the mouth-watering emoji 🤤) was first released in 1923. However, while this was the first variation of the Creme Egg, the delicious treat we know and enjoy today didn't actually hit the shelves until 1971.
An astonishing 500 million Cadbury's Creme Eggs are made each year, with approximately two-thirds of these enjoyed by Brits - that's around 3.5 eggs for every person living in the UK. Plus (the trivia isn't over yet!), if you were to stack these 500 million goo-filled eggs one on top of another, it would create a pile ten times taller than Mount Everest!
If those fun facts aren't enough for you, you're in luck because we've got plenty more... According to a survey conducted by Cadbury, there are three different ways to eat their Creme Egg. Over half (53%) of people bite the top off, lick the creme from the egg and then eat the remainder of the chocolate shell, 20% bite straight through the egg and the remaining 6% use their finger to scoop out the gooey filling. Madness.
With all of these interesting points above, it seems rather fitting to gift your clients and colleagues with a delicious Cadbury's Creme Egg. Each egg is presented in a box printed with your custom design to the entire box - sure to draw attention to your brand!
3. Easter Egg Hunts Are A Hit For The Family
An activity that we're sure everyone has taken part in at least once is an Easter egg hunt. Eagerly searching an area to collect as many Easter eggs as quickly as possible, with the aim of beating the competition and gathering the most chocolate eggs... What's not to love?
In 2007, Florida entered the world record books with the largest Easter egg hunt ever recorded; the hunt consisted of an impressive 501,000 eggs and 9,753 children!
At Total Merchandise, we're delighted to offer a range of promotional chocolate eggs that are perfect for a fun Easter egg hunt in your office or workplace. Each of these six delicious chocolate eggs is individually wrapped in an eye-catching foil wrapper, with the half-dozen chocolate eggs all presented in their own individual egg cartons, which can be personalised with a sleeve printed with your full colour design for maximum impact.
If you're looking for an extra special treat to include in your office Easter egg hunt then look no further than these Organza Bags with Foil Chocolate Eggs. These bags of goodness have a drawstring closure and are complete with a tag printed in stunning full colour with your company message. Another great thing about these branded gifts? The bag can be reused!
4. Who Needs Diamonds When You Can Have Gold?
The 'standard' Easter eggs you can find in your local supermarket may seem steep in price but they're nothing compared to the price tag on the Diamond Stella Egg. This rather extravagant egg cost a whopping £50,000 and was made from diamonds - now that's impressive. (Though we wouldn't recommend biting into it...)
Something to think about in your wildest, most sugar-fuelled dreams: the world's largest chocolate egg, created in Italy, weighed in at a whopping 7,200kg!
Our Mini Golden Chocolate Eggs might not be emblazoned with diamonds (and they certainly don't weigh 7,200kg, either) but you'll be pleased to hear that prices for them begin at just £1.85 per unit. These golden foil-wrapped eggs will certainly add a touch of glam to your Easter campaign, each is presented on a bed of hay-like shredded card within a clear tube personalised with your company logo.
