If you’re a chocolate fan, Easter is probably your favourite time of year. What might make it even better, is a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt, when you could bag some free chocolate.
Cadbury Easter eggs in the supermarket aren’t always cheap, so why not try and get them the old-fashioned way… go on a hunt for them!
Every year, Cadbury teams up with the National Trust to put on Easter egg hunts around the country. Here is everything you need to know:
Cadbury Easter egg hunt
From Good Friday to Easter Monday (10th – 13th April), National Trust locations around the country are holding Cadbury Easter egg hunts.
It works the same way as most others – chocolates are hidden all around the estate of a National Trust park or estate, and kids are welcome to come down and search for them!
You can come along on the day to take part in the hunt, and there is no need to book. Some places also have other activities on the day too including face painting and more.
The chocolate hidden includes Cadbury Easter eggs, Mini Egg packets, Dairy Milk bunnies and much more – so there should be plenty there for your chocolate fix.
How much does it cost?
Unfortunately, the hunts aren’t free but it’s still a cheap day out! Prices vary per location, with prices between £2-£4 per person. Some locations charge you fees to get into the grounds too, so be sure to check before you travel.
If your child (or you) find enough chocolate, you’ll hopefully get more in terms of value than what you’ve spent to get in.
When/where are they?
Most Easter egg hunts start at 10am and continue until 4pm, although I’m not sure how much chocolate will be left towards the end of the day. Although they should restock throughout the day, I recommend getting there close to opening, to have the best chance of getting some chocolate.
There are locations around the country to choose from. When I did a search I found eight locations within a 20 mile radius. To find your nearest Easter egg hunt, search here by using your postcode.
Hopefully this gives you something to do over the Easter holiday. Although this isn’t totally money saving, you may end up getting enough chocolate to outweigh your cost. And either way it’s a cheap day out for your kids.
If you can’t wait until Easter, you can pick up Easter eggs at Tesco for 75p until tomorrow.
