Has Cadbury dropped the word Easter?
In this manner, why has the word Easter been removed from Easter eggs?
"There has been no deliberate decision to drop the word Easter from our products and the name is still widely used at Nestlé." Eggs are a sign of re-birth, and the hollow chocolate is believed to represent Jesus's empty tomb after he was resurrected.
Subsequently, question is, why do we have Easter eggs and chocolate on Easter? The hard shell of the egg represents the tomb and the emerging chick represents Jesus, whose resurrection conquered death. The tradition of eating eggs on Easter is tied to Lent, the six-week period before Easter during which Christians traditionally abstained from all animal products, including meat, dairy and eggs.
Keeping this in view, has the word Easter been removed from eggs?
However, the idea that the word Easter has disappeared from the packaging of chocolate eggs in recent years appears to be unfounded. For example, several Cadbury products this year clearly feature the word Easter.
What are Easter eggs called?
Easter eggs, also called Paschal eggs, are eggs that are sometimes decorated. They are usually used as gifts on the occasion of Easter. As such, Easter eggs are common during the season of Eastertide (Easter season).
