Easter Sunday is approaching and with it, its ancestral tradition of giving away Easter Eggs. We, who are very foodies and always have a good excuse to eat delicious things, recommend the La Chinata Chocolate Olives, a chocolate figure that also has a long tradition among our people. That's right, we have reinvented the figure of the Easter Egg for a Chocolate Olive, as a nod to that long olive oil tradition that protects us.
However, it must be remembered that Easter eggs hide a great story that goes back centuries and that deserves to be remembered.
They all began centuries ago, and it has a great religious connotation, since it marks its birth with the period of abstinence during Lent, in which the church did not allow Christians to eat, among other things, eggs or dairy products. The hens, oblivious to this imposition, continued to lay eggs, and it seems that to preserve them, they bathed in a thin layer of wax. When Lent ended, people would gather in front of the local church and give them away. In this way, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ was celebrated.
In many other cultures, such as Greece and Rome, eggs represent 'life' and 'fertility', and painted eggs were also given away at parties, also very much in line with what it means for Christianity, a 'new life' after the Resurrection. of Christ.
These traditions have been rewritten over time and new customs have emerged, but giving away a chocolate egg is today a custom that still endures. Do you join this tradition?
La Chinata Chocolate Olives
At La Chinata, where we do not stop reinventing new products linked to the EVOO culture, we wanted to pay tribute to our Olive Oil tradition of more than 80 years with our Chocolate Olives.
On the one hand, we have created a figure made with exquisite Dark Chocolate and Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a light touch of sea salt, which after a delicate artisan process, results in this spectacular Dark Chocolate Olive.
Similarly, our White Chocolate Olive It is made with an exquisite selection of white chocolate and combined with our best Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The result is a fine and creamy chocolate with a light and intense EVOO aroma that is totally irresistible.
A gourmet choice with which you will surprise your loved ones at Easter and that will surely not leave them indifferent!
