What We Know About Cadbury's Easter Egg Hunt 2023

The famous Cadbury Worldwide Hide is BACK for another here, and we've got the down-low.

lt over the past couple of years, Cadbury has decided to change how it does its annual Easter egg hunt by taking the event worldwide. Allow us to explain...

Will the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt go ahead in 2023?

Yes! But it's going to look a little different to previous years. This year (as last year) it'll be a Cadbury's Worldwide Hide! In this system, participants can hide a Cadbury Easter egg anywhere in the world for someone you love to find it. Cute!

So how does it work?

  1. Hide your Easter egg: Think of a hiding spot that means something to you and the person you are hiding it from, then hide the egg on the map.

  2. Write your clue: Write a clue for your loved one to help them find their egg. How tricky you choose to make it is up to you! Once you’ve written it, send them your clue.

  3. Time for them to find their egg: When they’ve received your clue, they can start searching for their egg on the map.


There's an extra special twist this year, as Cadbury are working with the Trussell Trust to donate one Easter egg to a food bank for every Easter egg bought as part of the Worldwide hide. So you can be sure you'll be treating not only your loved one but someone in need, too.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt dates

This year's worldwide Cadbury’s Easter Egg hunt will kick off on Monday 6th March.

What was the original Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt?

In previous years, it was a big ol’ Easter egg hunt that takes place in a number of different locations in the UK – including some beautiful National Trust parks. The description of the hunt on the National Trust website, before it was cancelled, read: “Bring the whole family together in April for fun and nature-filled discoveries as you spot the first signs of spring at the places we care for. Follow the bunny's clues and finish your adventure with a delicious, chocolatey treat.”

As well as an Easter egg hunt, the event offered up a load of other fun activities for the whole family, including games, crafts and so much more.

However, for the past two years, the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt was cancelled due to Lockdown restrictions in the UK.

We knew the National Trust event was probably going to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021, but we were still sad.

At the time, Cadbury broke the news via a statement, which read: “As concerns around the spread of the coronavirus continue to increase, it is our top priority to protect the health and safety of our employees, partners and consumers in line with the latest guidance from the UK Government and local health authorities. For that reason, Cadbury and the National Trust have decided to cancel this year’s Easter Egg Hunts. We recognise that this will be disappointing news for many families, but we consider it the right thing to do.”

Easter egg hunts to do at home

Okay, so we might not be able to take part in the old fashioned Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt this year, but that’s no reason not to get the kids – and adults – involved in an egg hunt around your house and garden. These Cadbury Dairy Milk Orange Mini Eggs and Cadbury White Oreo eggs are perfect for hiding down the side of the sofa and behind the bird bath in your garden. Plus, there are a load of big Easter eggs on offer this year that you can give away as prizes.
