Alan and I experienced failure on the weekend when we went on a real Easter egg hunt. Alan had the desire for Easter eggs, so we walked and drove around his surroundings, from supermarket to petrol station on the look out for colourful foil.
Surely it could not be too hard to find an Eatser egg on Easter Sunday!
On a real Easter egg hunt, it is a good idea to wear the 'bogan-ist' clothes you have. They're comfortable and it will not matter if you end up with chocolate all over them...if you find chocolate that is
In the morning, I walked past two supermarkets, a Coles and a Woolworths both of which were closed and dark inside. Hence, no Easter eggs at that stage.
Later in the day we went for a drive.
Foodworks - NO EASTER EGGS!
Shell/Coles Express petrol station - NO EASTER EGGS! KFC was closed and we did not try the hotel-motel
BP - EASTER EGGS!
We spotted the Easter eggs at BP from the car! COLOURFUL FOIL!! AHHH! However, we took a look at the price and were not so excited; $6.50 for 100g! Hmm...to buy or not to buy. I had already spent $4.95 on a toothbrush from the airport and was feeling a little financially strained.
Alan and I discussed the game plan. We would buy Freddo Frogs to curb the chocolate cravings and would look for Easter eggs on Monday. Yes, that sounded like a good plan. However, then I saw a Kinder bar and traded my Freddo for it.
Alan also bought a peppermint Freddo but started to eat it before I could take a photo:) He really wanted chocolate! hehe
Is the 100s and 1000s Freddo new? I remember eating something similar (with colourful bits in it) during grade 1 French classes - they were prizes for being good:)
In conclusion it is a difficult and/or expensive exercise to purchase Easter eggs on Easter Sunday. We failed. We however did not give up. Stay tuned, as the Easter egg hunt continues in Cabramatta, in a future blog post.
