Share an AERO Sweet Easter Sendable & Win Chocolate!

When I was a little girl, I remember having a hard time sleeping the night before Easter. I was too excited for the Easter bunny to come and hide all his chocolate eggs around my house. My mom and dad always bought us girls other goodies like toys, clothes and of course, more chocolate! I continued this tradition with my girls. They wake up excited on Easter morning to hunt for eggs that the Easter bunny has hidden throughout the house. Some spots are obvious, but then the Easter bunny also gives them a few challenging finds!

After the hunt for eggs is complete, the girls open up their presents. Normally we just get them a couple toys, an outfit and more chocolate!  When we were in Ontario and closer to my family, we would go to my parent’s house for Easter dinner. My grandma June would always come and my mom would make either a turkey or ham and her famous butterscotch meringue pie. It was always so much fun to just be able to hang out with my family while the kids play and eat more of their Easter chocolate!

Speaking of Easter chocolate, have you ever wondered where the tradition came from? I had no clue but did a bit of digging around online and  discovered that it’s actually a European tradition dating back to the 19th century. In France and Germany, people would give chocolate as gifts. They started with dark and bitter chocolate eggs but then the tradition evolved as technology improved and better chocolate was produced. Now you can find all kinds of chocolate flavours.  I have to say I like having a wide selection to choose from!

This Easter, I’m excited to try the Bubbly AERO Peppermint Lamb and share it with my girls. Instead of the regular bunny, AERO has created an adorable chocolate lamb in the great AERO chocolate taste that we know and love.
