Great Easter Egg Hunt to hit the streets of Bristol

A Great Easter Egg Hunt will hit the streets of Bristol this week to tantalize chocolate lovers across the city in the run up to Easter weekend.


From Friday 11th March, the team behind Taste Chocolate festival will be hiding artisan creations in venues across the city centre every day until Good Friday (Friday 25th March).


Following a phenomenal debut year, Taste Chocolate festival is returning to Bristol Harbourside on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March. The festival will be bigger and better than ever with over 40 exhibitors showcasing indulgent, beautifully crafted chocolates, cakes, patisserie, fudge, churros, wine, donuts, beer, liqueurs, hot chocolate and much more.


Sophie Bowden, co-director of Taste Chocolate festival comments, “With Taste Chocolate festival taking place over the Easter weekend, we thought that it would be fun to get things started with an Easter egg hunt. But these aren’t just any normal Easter eggs but bespoke eggs that have been crafted by our talented exhibitors. The eggs will be hidden in 15 iconic Bristol locations and we look forward to seeing the excitement unfold and of course, welcoming the lucky finders as our guests at the festival!” 


From Friday 11th March – Friday 25th March chocolate aficionados across the city will be challenged to locate one egg per day, using clues shared via social media. Each egg will be hidden in one of the participating venues. Once discovered, the lucky winner is required to state a secret password, also revealed on social media, in order to claim the bespoke egg.


Each egg also includes a unique code entitling the winner and up to three guests entry to the festival on either Saturday 26th March or Sunday 27th March. That’s not all, in one very special egg there will be a Golden Ticket that will entitle one lucky winner to a chocolate hamper, in addition to the egg they find on the day and tickets to the festival.


Featuring artisan chocolatiers, specialist food producers, delicious street food and cooking demonstrations, the festival is the perfect way to spend Easter weekend. For 2016, the festival will also feature a food and drink court with some of the city’s finest street food, Prosecco bar and craft ale bar as well as a fascinating History of Chocolate exhibition.
