The first UK Bank Holidays of the year are on the horizon and with them, the overeating of chocolate and specifically, pretending that you don’t have your own unique approach to eating Creme Eggs.
Here’s our take on how each Team Role might eat theirs.
In two bites. There’s no time for anything else, even if I do feel a bit unwell afterwards.
I don't have an egg to eat. Why? Because my colleague was feeling a bit under the weather, so I gave mine to him.
Well, I will of course make mine last the whole afternoon – I eat it nibble by nibble for full sugar impact. And I put the foil in the recycling bin – every little helps.
Funny you should ask. I have the new limited edition one that I managed to get hold of as my friends’ husbands brother works in their marketing department… I’ll only eat it once I’ve posted a picture on Instagram. And if I haven’t sold it for a profit…
Hmmm, it depends – you must take quite a few factors into account. These include but are not limited to - How soon is it before dinner? Is there another one in the fridge? Is it so warm that it will melt before I eat it all? Will it cause a mess on my shirt if it does melt? Am I about to go in to a meeting? Once I’ve considered the variables, I’ll let you know.
I cut it into rough quarters, wrap each one up in cling film and put it back into the fridge. Then I have one quarter at 10.30, the next at lunch, one at 3pm (with my afternoon tea), and the last one before I get home. It’s the same every year.
Sorry, is it Easter? Really? Oh, OK. Look, is this important? I’m half way through a 2-hour seminar on the importance of Crystallization and Polymorphism of Fats and Fatty Acids…
I warm mine in the oven with a smidgeon of cinnamon and a spoonful of brandy. Once melted I spread it on some well buttered granary toast. Lovely.
We eat ours as a team. I send Bob to buy them, Paul to work out when everyone is free, and ask Jo to make sure there is a spare meeting room so that we can all eat them together.
Do you recognise yourself in any of these descriptions? How do you eat yours?
