But why do we give ourselves chocolate eggs at Easter? If you don't know when this custom started, we will tell you about it below. And we will also show you the Easter eggs and special chocolate kits that we have separated for this date. Come along with us?
The meaning of the egg
The Easter egg is the main symbol of this date, which is celebrated all over the world. Its importance is due to the fact that the egg is present in different cultures. This is because throughout history the egg has been associated with fertility and rebirth.
The custom of giving eggs as presents and using them for decoration is ancient. They already appeared in pre-Christian celebrations. The celebration of the end of winter and the arrival of spring was marked by the exchange of hen eggs. They represented the natural cycle of life, and the desire for a fertile harvest.
In some cultures, however, the egg was emptied, and its shell decorated. Bright, vibrant colors were used - like on today's packaging - to match the celebration of the date.
With this, Christians incorporated colored eggs as a symbol of rebirth and joy. The habit of exchanging eggs at Easter was transformed by the addition of chocolate, as we will tell you below.
The chocolate Easter egg was created in France in the 18th century. Chocolate was a luxury item, and its preparation was left to the pâtissiers. These chefs specialized in sweets filled chicken eggs emptied with chocolate.
Once filled and painted on the outside, the eggs were given as gifts. On Easter Day, the parents would hide the colored eggs in the gardens for the children to find. Imagine the surprise of the little ones to discover that the colored egg had chocolate in it!
Finally, the popularization of cocoa allowed the creation of the all-chocolate Easter egg. Today, there is a wide variety of fillings, sizes, and surprises. To help you in this sweet task we have separated the tastiest Easter egg options.
