Preparing for Easter with Guylian – review and giveaway

Easter is always a special time in this household.  I was born on Good Friday 50 years ago – eek!  and as a child I loved it when my birthday fell over the the holidays.  This year Easter comes earlier, but there will be lots of fun to be had over the holidays.  My son is already asking when we’ll be having our traditional Easter Egg hunt in the garden.  I’ll be preparing for Easter with Guylian this year with their range of Belgian chocolate delights.

Preparing for Easter with Guylian

I recently posted about Guylian and their famous Belgian chocolate sea shells. At Easter time these are always popular, but Guylian have also launched three new products for Easter 2018 whilst adding gold and green packaging to their existing range.

The Temptations Easter Egg box  and Temptations Easter Bunny contains a selection of six different flavoured Temptations chocolates whilst the Temptations Easter Egg, has the added delight of a creamy chocolate egg to enjoy along with a gift box full of Temptations chocolates.

We have enjoyed Easter Egg Hunts with the Guylian Mini Eggs before and they’re a great idea for all the family to enjoy with a mix of milk chocolate truffle, milk chocolate praline and dark chocolate praline eggs to enjoy.

Other ways of preparing for Easter with Guylian this year include their Flame Egg which comes with rather impressive packaging and their Sea Shell Easter Egg Gift Box which I’m hoping my son might actually but for his Mummy!

One thing’s for sure, that as I start preparing for Easter with Guylian, I’m not going to get left out either.  Whilst my son and his Dad can enjoy sharing the Guylian Medium Sea Shell Easter Egg we’ve received, I’m going to indulge with the 125g box of praline sea shells that comes with it.  Don’t tell!

Growing up my mum did lots of arts and crafts with us around this time, I was born on Easter Sunday so similarly excited about the holiday and looked forward to making things and going places. Mum always did an Easter egg hunt and we made Easter cards and I remember doing Easter bonnetts for school with those tiny yellow chicks.

  65. Some of our family go to church in the morning, then we all get together for lunch and do an Easter egg hunt for the children. If the weather is bad, we just hide them indoors instead!

  66. Last year our granddaughter was not quite 2 years old, so we did a very simple Easter egg hunt indoors in the sitting room. We placed the eggs in what we thought were very easy places for a small person to find, but she had not quite grasped the concept of looking anywhere except at her eye-level, so needed lots of help. This year we’ll do it again and may even try outdoors depending on the weather.
