We hunted around the Internet to find pictures of Easter eggs in years gone by.  The best source of these was an archive put together by Rowntree, sharing several pictures of their eggs in the 1970s.

    • My MIL used to make and sell them. I was fascinated to watch her ice them. Some people have the icing gene, but not me.

  2. The Easter bunny brought us all one Easter Egg…. Lolly ones of course. our children only hot one each too. I am absolutely shocked by the amount of eggs children get these days. Was out of control.

  3. The eggs were very beautiful…….I used to keep mine for days just to admire them. My own kids got one chocolate egg each. Easter Bunny wasn’t yet invented !
