Have you seen the Marmite Easter Egg? Can you even believe that there is such a thing. I mean there are those that Love Marmite and those that Hate it. Yet I’ve never met anyone that was a Lover of Marmite, if it was mixed into an Easter Egg!
Marmite Easter Egg
I’ll take you back a few days to a crazy idea I had with the kids. As we’re going to be away for Easter, I thought we’d go Egg crazy early. With a fake go pro attached to the trolley, I let them choose any egg / eggs they wanted. I have a total value in my head and I’ll be honest… we reached that quite quickly. I noticed the majority of the eggs they picked up were novelty style. Things like Trolls, Barbie and My Little Pony.
Then I spotted the Marmite Easter Egg! I’m sure if I posted this at the beginning of April, you would have thought it was a joke or April Fools. Sadly it was no joke. I was drawn to it like a slowly unfolding disaster. Maybe if I sneak it into the trolley the kids won’t notice it!
Easter Egg Craziness
The trolley full of eggs became the basis of our Sunday morning and afternoon. We learned a lot from it and had great fun in the process.
One thing that we learned was that most of the novelty Easter Eggs are made by a company called Kinnerton. We also learned that certain brands of eggs have trademark patterns on the eggs eggsterior. The kids chose a selection of eggs covering various ranges, from teh cheaper £1 eggs up to the luxury Belgian chocolate ones.
We also decided that the amount of eggs we’d bought was too much, so on the video we have 4 Easter Eggs up for grabs.
The Marmite Easter Egg Challenge
It started to become obvious that the kids didn’t want to try the marmite Easter Egg. Surely it can’t be that bad. Even though I’m not a Marmite fan, it sounded like it could be fun. Have you ever tried chilli chocolate or salted chocolate. It all sounds like it could be from a similar food grouping. The only way Imogen and Abigail was going to try the chocolate was if we made it into a Youtube Challenge. So this is what we did!
I won’t spoil the outcome of the video, but I’ll say that the Marmite Egg is patterned and looks very much like an egg from other ranges. So it was very easy to pass the chocolate off as normal. He He!
Let us know if you’ve tried the Marmite Egg and if you loved it or Hated it!
