Egg News: UK chocolate company Thorntons have been slammed by consumer groups, after unveiling their latest product for Easter – chocolate ‘love eggs’.

The eggs, which vibrate and are designed to be inserted into the anus or vagina before being hidden in the garden for children to find and eat, have been labelled ‘disgusting’ by family associations and the chocolate industry.

“You’d expect much more from such a well-regarded chocolate company,” said Susan Lait-Cuddles. “The eggs are less than 20% cocoa, which is appalling. In certain parts of the E.U you wouldn’t even be allowed to call this chocolate.”

“In time of economic hardship we need to find ways to give our customers extra value,” said Thorntons spokesman Damien Kraszanki.

“Customers will not only receive the pleasure of inserting a vibrating egg into their hoo-harrs, but also the pleasure of enjoying some delicious chocolate as part of traditional Easter celebrations.”

It’s not the first controversy to strike at Easter – last year Lindt had nearly 250,000 chocolate rabbits destroyed, after they became infected with a rare strain of cocoa-myxomatosis.
