You Know It's Christmas When...

The Cadbury's Creme Eggs are in the shops.

I couldn't believe it the other night when I saw the creme eggs in the shops already, just a couple of days after Christmas. The first TV adverts for them were on the box there now. Is this how the chocolate retail business works, to spur people on to the next major holiday season before we've even finished with the current one? Are consumers so bored that they always have to be caught up in the next great trend and start to get eggs-cited about chocolate eggs while the selection boxes and tins of sweets are still in the living room?

I am partial to a creme egg or two, but not just yet! Other Easter themed chocolate eggs are also available, but I used creme eggs as an eggs-ample.

  1. I bought my first Easter Egg on Saturday. It was a gift for a friend who was giving me a hard time on Facebook for having taken my Christmas tree down on New Years Day.

    He was pretty chuffed to have an easter egg and a Christmas tree in the same room at the same time. Sad ;-)
