How To Eat An Easter Egg

Here is another ‘Easter Poem’ from my archives. This one is from Easter last year (2021)

How To Eat An Easter Egg

[i] Carefully chose your Bunny’s and Egg’s

But the “Violet Crumble” box is a MUST

Deliciously smooth and tasty

[ii] Wisely place your purchase in the fridge

Australia always has a hot Easter weekend

And judiciously push the Easter delights towards the back

[iii] Patiently wait until Sunday morning

Stoically obey those traditional procedures

Mine were eaten by Saturday evening. How did you go?

[iv] Delicately unwrap the colourful foil covering

I have diligently preserved the shiny shells since my first egg-hunt

Then gently nibble open the pointy end of the exposed Egg

[v] Fiendishly devour the irresistible chocolate

Until you are more than fully satiated

Then voraciously attack the bunny and bite off his ears

WHOOPS !! surprise, surprise … that rascally easter bunny has
left me some “Eggs” to find on Sunday…

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Yes, for me it has to be Cadburys, though I would love to try the violet bunny! Do you get Cadburys in Australia? I can’t get it hear but luckily my family send me…sorry ‘the kids’ some at this time of year!

    1. The Cadbury’s factory is in Tasmania(Hobart) was founded in 1922, and when I travel to Philadelphia, it’s compulsory to show up with a suitcase full of Violet Crumble bars.. yes they are very morish

      1. That’s fascinating, I didn’t know! I’ve been to the Cadburys factory in Bournville Birmingham, UK…so Biolet Crumble is made by Cadburys? Might be worth a trip to Australia to try one!

      2. I think we all have very similar chocolate bars but because Cadbury’s has factories all over the world each country has a different name and different packaging for the same thing. Cadbury’s was actually founded in Birmingham, England in 1824. 🙂

      3. Apparently the Australian Violet crumble bar is the equivalent to Cadbury’s Crunchie bar and was originally made by Nestle and later sold to Robert Menz.

        And it seems that we do have them here in some of our stores but they’re imported from Australia and not made over here. Found this snippet.

      4. That’s very interesting Sue. We have both the Crunchy Bar and the Violet Crumble Bar, and they definitely taste different.. and of the Violet Crumble is definitely betterer 😄🌏😎

      5. Talking of interesting, exactly two years ago, on one of our visits to York, the home of chocolate (Terrys founded 1767) we visited the ‘Chocolate Experience’ we learned so much about the fascinating history of all chocolate.

        Joss loves the chocolate orange so I got him a Chocolate Orange Easter egg this year, but it started out as a chocolate apple! Didn’t work!

        Now although I’m not the greatest fan of chocolate on its own such as an Easter egg, I enjoy a Crunchie bar. And I’m definitely going to keep an eye open for your Violet Crumble, it sounds delicious. 🙂

  2. Obviously by risk you mean we have to turn upside down!

    No Easter eggs for me this year I’m limiting my sugar intake. Lockdown extra eating /drinking has caught up with me and I’ve no wish to become a diabetic.

    Mind you, it helps that I’m not too bothered about chocolate 🙂
