NOW CLOSED Win a trip to Cadbury World and other choccy treats: can you find the hidden word in our Talk Topic Easter Egg (n Spoon) Hunt?

To celebrate the launch of Cadbury's new kids' Easter treat, Egg n Spoon, we have a fun filled Easter Egg (n Spoon) Hunt for you to take part in...

We've hidden seven eggs around the site for you to find and the clues are posted below to help you find them.

Each egg is hidden on a specific (and different) MN Talk board (if you're not familiar with them all - and there are LOTS of them - you may want to click on the Topics A-Z link here). And the first letter of the name of that board is the letter you're after. So, if the clue leads you to the Weaning Talkboard, the letter you need is W.

Collect all 7 letters, unscramble them and you'll end up with a word. All you then have to do is submit the word on the competition form here to be in with a chance of winning a family trip to Cadbury World or one of twenty Cadbury Easter treats.

Oh, and you're welcome to help each other out with the clues but, if you guess the final word, please don't post it here. That would spoil the fun, eh?

Here are the clues:

Day 1: Hmmmm, Betty or Evie? How to choose...

Day 2: Where you chat about Tom's ready meals, and what Brine and Jenny Darling have been up to?

Day 3: The place to go when you have POAS and had a positive experience

Day 4: Slightly trickier one today: we're looking for the first letter of a likely acronym-only reply to any thread on our most famously straight-talking talk topic

Day 5: The place to find recommendations if your holiday plans are Old-Blighty-based

Day 6: Good tips for trips that'll have you back home by bedtime?

Day 7: Where to go for a cuppa, a biscuit and a _

Here's the link to the competition form again: www.mumsnet.com/microsites/cadburys-egg-n-spoon

Thanks and good luck,

MNHQ

NB Due to tech ishoos we've had to move the position of all the eggs on the talk pages. They are all still there, if you can't see them look lower grin

Where's the 3rd one? <bangs spoon on tabletop>

AngelWreakinHavoc Wed 06-Mar-13 13:22:27

how exciting!

Chulita Wed 06-Mar-13 13:26:20

<worries the 3rd one might pop up after her bedtime>

mrs2cats Wed 06-Mar-13 14:05:07

Isitme1 it's a tricky one. I just did what was suggested further up and used google to search for 'Brine and Jenny Darling'. You then get a clue to which forum it belongs. Just have to search for the forum then!

This is certainly sending us all round the mumsnet forums (or is it fora?)!grin

learnermummy Wed 06-Mar-13 15:06:16

Yes, I had to google it too! But could only see the egg on the mobile site.

CheeryCherry Wed 06-Mar-13 16:26:28

I must be thick as I haven't guessed the word yet! smile

BadBuddha Wed 06-Mar-13 17:18:44

Still no third clue? Or am I missing something obvious?

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 06-Mar-13 17:26:23

BadBuddha the third clue will be up this evening so keep an eye on this thread smile

BadBuddha Wed 06-Mar-13 19:37:03

Ok, thanks Katie <attempts to rein in impatience>

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 06-Mar-13 20:03:11

Today's clue is in the OP, good luck! grin

steppemum Wed 06-Mar-13 20:26:50

umm - I can't find it. Thought clue was fairly obvious (day 3) but can't find an egg under anything related.

Am I missing the egg????

steppemum Wed 06-Mar-13 20:30:29

Oh I've found it! (I had missed one of the topics!)

Cheddars Wed 06-Mar-13 21:35:07

I'm confused. confused I think I must've got clue 1 wrong. sad

Got 3 now, mobile site was so slow last night I looked this morning instead.

Pascha Thu 07-Mar-13 09:11:17

I've got all three, no idea about the word yet though. What's confusing youCheddars? The names in the clue could be any really, boy or girl. Think about what board you would look on to talk about them.

FairyJen Thu 07-Mar-13 10:10:22

< drums fingers for today's clue > [need to get a life emoticon]

FairyJen Thu 07-Mar-13 10:13:24

mnhq I thought I had guessed word however quick search of the topics shows that there is one letter that none of the topics start with. Now I could be wrong about the answer... Or there could be a slight problem in a few days...grin

Cheddars Thu 07-Mar-13 10:44:13

Ooh I know where I went wrong- the egg stays on the topics for the week! I thought I had a repeated topic.

Now I just need to solve day 3.......wink

Yes, the eggs stay in the topics, so folks who join the comp late can catch up.

Each clue/egg is about a different topic, though. No repetition.

FairyJen Thu 07-Mar-13 11:42:49

Oo cryptic! smile

your all panicking like mad now ain't ya

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 07-Mar-13 12:04:06

Put your thinking caps on, today's clue is in the OP smile

FairyJen Thu 07-Mar-13 12:06:31

Pmsl MNHQ! Well done tho! grin

But that can't be right, today's clue has a different letter to the word I thought it was, are you sure you don't want to check again HQ?? grin
