Easter Egg Hunt Prizes

Entries are now closed and we’ve randomly picked the winners. Congratulations to the 4 winners in our  Hunt the Easter Egg competition! We were thrilled with the incredible amount of people who took the time to visit our new website and have a look around, on their mission of winning Easter chocolate goodies. All of the people who gave the correct answer were given a number, and random numbers were generated to find our winners. 

They are:

First Prize winner of a Lindt Maxi Carrot: Sarah-Jane Laycock

Second Prize winner of a Thorntons Charlie Chick: Angela Millar

Third Prize winners of a Thorntons Harry Hopalot chocolate bunny: Kim Tanner and Tessa Roberts

Well done to them, we hope they enjoy their delicious prizes, and for those of you who didn’t crack the competition, here’s the answer.

Which part of a chocolate rabbit do 76% of people eat first?

Look out for another competition coming up soon!


We have a great new Easter competition to help you to celebrate this great Spring celebration of rebirth and new beginnings and to introduce our brand-new easy to navigate website. It has been designed to make the process of buying competitively priced travel insurance even easier than it was before, and has lots of great features worthy of a closer look!

We are very proud of the new site, which clearly illustrates all of the comprehensive benefits offered by our policies, and allows you to get a quote for your upcoming trip away and to also purchase the policy online.  There is also the opportunity to ask our friendly and knowledgeable customer-service team any questions that you have, via the live-chat option.  Our phone number is also available, if you’d prefer to talk to someone directly, or buy your policy over the phone.

The prizes in our fun Easter competition are:

First Prize – A Lindt Maxi Carrot containing a selection of Lindt chocolate carrots, Lindor eggs, Lindt chicks, gold bunnies and Lindt lambs.
Second Prize – Thorntons Charlie Chick 250g
There are two third prizes – one is a white chocolate Thorntons Harry Hopalot and the other is a milk chocolate Harry Hopalot (both 60g)

Your Easter egg challenge is to search our new website for Easter eggs, which have letters on, which spell out two words.  Here is an example of how one of the eggs looks:

Here are some more fun Easter egg facts:

–         An amazing 90 million chocolate eggs are sold in the UK each year.  Easter eggs are linked to the end of the 40-day fasting period of Lent.
–         Each child in the UK receives an average of 8.8 Easter eggs in a year –but what about the adults?!
–         Easter sales of chocolate account for 10% of UK chocolate spending for the whole year – unsurprising really, as they appear in the supermarket aisles just after Christmas!
–         The UK’s first chocolate egg was produced in 1873 by Fry’s of Bristol.
–         The tallest chocolate Easter egg was made in Italy in 2011.  It was 10.39 metres high and weighed 7, 200kg, making it taller than a giraffe and heavier than an elephant!
–         The world’s most popular egg-shaped chocolate is the gooey Cadbury’s Creme egg, made in Cadbury’s Birmingham factory.  How do you eat yours? I definitely eat mine too quickly!
–         People in Scotland in the North-East of England enjoy a spot of painted-egg rolling down hills on Easter Sunday.  All good clean exercise!
–         43% of children get to eat their first chocolate egg of the day before Easter Sunday, but the time most tuck into their first egg is 11am on Easter Sunday – that’s got to ruin the Sunday roast…
–         Unsurprisingly, 19% of kids say they’ve made themselves ill by eating too much chocolate over the Easter holidays…. the other 81% must be pretty restrained by comparison!

Go on an Easter Egg hunt at a beautiful National Trust property, where your kids can take part in the Cadbury Easter Egg Trail – they get a make-it-yourself pith helmet, a trail journal with clues, an Eggsplorer passport to be stamped along the way, and the delicious reward of a Cadburys Egghead at the end.

Find a participating National Trust property here.

Read the intriguing tale of the hunt for  a £20 million Easter egg bought by ‘A Stranger’  – to narrow it down slightly, it wasn’t me!!

 Good Luck to all competition entrants – wishing everyone an eggcellent Easter too!
