Did you know that the Cadbury Brothers first started making their filled chocolate eggs back in 1923? The egg in its current form was first sold in 1963.
You make an egg in 2 halves - pouring white fondant into a milk chocolate shell and then adding a dash of yellow fondant for the yolk. This is done while the eggs are still warm - you then press the 2 halves together, and as the chocolate cools the 2 halves bond. Clever stuff!
The factory in Bournville near Birmingham makes 1.5 million eggs per day, and January-April around 200 million eggs are sold.
