Trivia Thursday - Happy Easter!

As we're all headed for a long and sunny Easter weekend I particularly look forward to all the chocolate treats that Easter involves. Well, I have to admit I'm a bit of a "chocoholic".

So I gathered some chocolaty Easter facts I'd like to share with you:
  • The first Chocolate Easter Eggs were made in Europe in the early 19th Century with France and Germany being the forerunners.
  • John Cadbury made his first 'French eating Chocolate' in 1842 but it was not until 1875 that the first Cadbury Easter Eggs were made.
  • According to the largest Chocolate Easter Egg weighed a total of 6440 kg and was prepared by Supermercados Imperatriz Ltda and NestlĂ© in Brazil.
  • The largest rabbit made of chocolate weighed 3010 kg and was made by Duracell South Africa (
  • 76% of the people bite off the chocolate bunny ears first, 5% bite the feet first and 4% eat the tail first.

But obviously it's not all about chocolate. Easter can also be an incredible inspiration when it comes to advertising. The following was done for Cologne Zoo, Germany. I love the simplicity of it.

And finally an agency self-promo by TBWA, Warsaw, Poland. It refers to the biblical resurrection story and is a bit different, that's why I like it.

Have a lovely Easter everyone!
