Check out the picture below.

Here's the link on the creation of this monstrosity. http://www.pimpthatsnack.com/project....

Any thoughts on how to attack, er, I mean eat this "egg"?

    : O
    I'm almost speechless. I think my plan of attack would be to break or carve out the top, like a pumpkin, then break off bits of the chocolate and dip it into the filling.The only problem I foresee is running out of chocolate before filling, which can be remedied by bringing in other Cadbury bars. Oh my goodness. I had better not ever see one of these in a store.

        I am envious!.. where did you find such a wondrous creation?
        I also recommend the 'pumpkin carving' plan of attack marmite suggested.
        however if you do run out of chocolate, treat the remaining filling as a fondue of sorts. dip graham crackers, marshmallows, fruit, more chocolate, nuts,etc into the luscious gooey concoction.

          Well, if you run out of chocolate, maybe you can eat it with this LARGE OREO cookie.

            Did you see the massive Ferrero-Rocher on that site? I covet that thing!

          Wow. Maybe cut the top, like you would a soft boiled egg in an egg cup and then scoop out the center w/ some of the chocolate. It'll be be a huge sugar rush no matter what you do. The fun thing would be to put it in a baking tray and take a hammer to it.

            <speechless> that is unbelievable. i am in awe of the ingenuity of the creators... i think it would eat it like a boiled egg with a teaspoon, making sure to include a small piece of shell in each bite. and maybe i'd keep it refrigerated until right before eating to stop it from falling apart.

              This is too funny - they did a damn good job on it, down to the foil wrapping!

              And my teeth ache the few times I've attemped one of the baby original-sized ones, like lbs said above....I can't even imagine this one - calorie count of 10,000. :-)

                  Which reminds me - time to get some Peeps and bite they little heads off. :-)

                Seriously! Where did you get that egg? I want one!

                    I can't believe they took the time to replicate the friggin' wrapper! THAT is true devotion to food :)

                      I'm also tempted to make the picture of the giant Cadbury Egg my avatar.

                        Obviously, the best way to eat it is in one bite.

                          A 5 lb. Creme Egg. My teeth are curling just thinking about it... and I love it! Thanks for the link, this must be one of the cooler sites I have seen in a long while.

                            The best way to eat it? Definitely with SEVERAL friends.

                              I suppose I can see why this was moved, but it sure comes under "not about food" for me!

                                I would back away, slowly and carefully.
