Eagle eyed Loquax compers may have noticed a guest appearance from our Easter Loquax logo yesterday. That’d be the egg shaped one that looks like it has the pox by the way. He appeared due to the wonders of automation and the fact that we’d not changed the Easter dates from last year to this year. Anyway he’s safely back in the cupboard until later in April.
But it did remind us that it is nearly Easter and with a fair few chocolate and Easter Egg related competitions already starting to appear it seems a good a time as any to have a quick look through them. Chocolate tends to be quite a popular prize – most certainly when we’ve done giveaways they’ve attracted a lot of interest. Maybe we’ll have one soon! In the mean time get your teeth into these…
Hotel Chocolat like to sponsor competitions at this time of year. They’ve given a number of sites hampers, boxes of chocolates and Easter Eggs to giveaway.
If you don’t mind getting your chocolate fix after Easter then make sure you enter the Hotel Chocolat competition from Classic FM. They have a Be Pampered Chocolate Hamper on offer. This ends on 29th April. Hotel Chocolat themselves have their own Easter Competition with a hamper as the prize. They want a new name for their Baby Egg range – you have until the 24th April to be creative.
Meanwhile, Feeding Boys and Fuss Free Flavours for example both have an Ostrich Easter Egg to be won. These are worth £65 each and will keep you in chocolate for – ooh – at least most of Easter Sunday! Both close 15th April, so plenty of time to receive the prize before Easter.
Staying with Easter Egg prizes, Mum Knows Best are offering Moo Free Easter Eggs. These are “ideal for anyone with a dairy or lactose intolerance”! Login and answer a question to take part before the 11th April.
If you prefer your eggs to be Organic then head on over to Omsco as they have a dozen chocolate eggs from online organic retailer Abel and Cole to be won in their Easter competition. Very nice they look too! One question and your details are all they require. The closing date is the 14th April.
Cadbury are also in on the Easter competition act and they have 10 mouth-watering Easter Egg Trail Kits up for grabs. Worth £16.50 each, these kits contain everything you need for an Easter Egg hunt, including some larger eggs for the winners. If you fancy taking part in a real Easter Egg Hunt then take a look at Easter Egg Trails to find out what’s happening in your area.
If you prefer the online Easter Hunt then there are a couple of competitions already under way. Argent of London are giving away a beautiful Enamel Egg Pendant to the winner of their competition. Find the eggs to take part. Over at Spar you can win an iPod Touch and Easter Eggs by finding the eggs on their site. Both close on 25th April. Closing a day earlier, on the 24th, is MISI – they’ve hidden 20 bunnies on their site and have a number of handmade prizes waiting to be won.
Of course, once Mother’s Day is out the way we expect to see a lot more Easter related competitions and prizes. They’ll probably be plenty of chocolate goodies to be won via Facebook and Twitter too. With that in mind, we’ll take another look at what’s on offer later in April!
