IT’S Easter this weekend – so what better way to celebrate than with CHOCOLATE! Yes, it’s the one time of the year we can all over-indulge without being accused of pigging out, well, assuming you don’t go overboard and raid Woolworths on Monday for all those bargain-basement eggs that didn’t sell in time for Easter Sunday.
Not that I’ve ever done that you understand (but you can get some egg-cedingly cheap deals). Oh no, the puns and jokes have started. Anyway, to help you get in the mood, here’s our Tech Digest Top 5 Easter-related gadgets to get you really egg-cited. Sorry!
LG CHOCOLATE PHONE
We can’t start our list without the obvious mobile from LG. It caused a storm when first released and was one of the most popular handsets of last year. So much so, just before Christmas the firm released new silver and lilac versions. Mmm, silver and lilac chocolate, it’s not exactly appetising is it?
Still, the original black and white models continue on sale so you can pick up the one that matches your real choccy tastes. But as our original post revealed, the silver model can only be found in Phones4U stores on pay-as-you-go, while the lilac one is exclusive to rival chain Carphone Warehouse, on both contract and pay-as-you-go.
I’m looking forward to the vanilla fudge and turkish delight versions, or maybe that’s simply wishful thinking.

SOLDIER EGG CUP
Now this is truly a great gizmo. It doesn’t use electric, it doesn’t use batteries, but it is one of those things you never thought you wanted, but will love.
Pop in your boiled egg and it will be protected by three sword-wielding plastic soldiers.
Members of the Boil Fusiliers maybe? But the best gadgety thing about it is for £14.99 you get the Perfect Soldier Cutter in the pack.
This neat piece of kit slices proper thin strips of toast into the perfect shape for dunking in the delicious yellow stuff. Mind you, why stop with real eggs. Shove a Cadbury’s Creme one in there for an altogether different taste sensation.

HOT CHOCTAIL MAKER
Chocolate fountains for the home are so old hat now. But this cocktail maker uses the smooth brown stuff for an altogether more alcoholic purpose.
Just mix in your favourite choc from buttons to Milky Bar and then blend it with whatever alcohol you fancy. The result is a gorgeous drink that’s slips down the throat with ease and you won’t even feel like you’re getting drunk.
It costs £34.95 and the resulting gunge looks just like that chocolate river from Willy Wonka’s factory. The options are endless for what you can create making it far more fun than a fountain and much more tasty than a fruit-based drink. There’s even a cool little tap to dispense your fluid.
SONY ROLLY MP3 PLAYER
Ok, so you can’t eat it but this music gizmo is shaped like an egg. The Rolly as it’s called was shown off at CES in Las Vegas this year and has 2GB of internal storage.
What’s interesting about it is it will dance and move along to your tunes and comes in a variety of colours. There’s still no confirmed released date or price but you can whet your appetite by watching a video of it in action using the link below.

CHOCOLATE SHOT GLASSES
If you like Baileys, then you’ll love these – just pour in that favourite liqueur and down it in one. But the best bit comes once you’ve swallowed the drink, because these glasses are good enough to eat. That’s because they are made out of CHOCOLATE.
They’re exclusive to I Want One Of Those and come in a pack of 12 for £9.99. That’s a little bit on the expensive side really but there’s one important bonus… you won’t have to spend time doing the washing up!
And finally, if you fancy a laugh, then relive last year’s Creme Egg challenge when one hungry man downed a PINT of the sweet stuff to celebrate Easter 2007 – after shoving the chocolates in a blender. See it by clicking here…
