Easter egg - What Does It Mean?
Easter egg has both a literal meaning and a figurative meaning.
The term Easter egg first came into use around 1825, before this time they were called pace eggs. The term Easter egg referred to an edible egg, from a chicken, boiled and then dyed or decorated in some fashion before it is hidden for children to hunt. (Traditionally Easter eggs were painted with birds in the hope they became fertilised). This has now evolved to incorporate a candy or chocolate egg.
A more recent meaning of the term Easter egg is a hidden feature in a video game or other media, such as a joke, message or gameplay. This use of the term Easter egg first appeared in 1979, in reference to an Atari game called Adventure, programmed by Warren Robinett. Robinett had a dispute with his supervisor over crediting programmers with their work in the game’s credits. He programmed the game so that when the player moved his avatar over a certain pixel, the message “Created by Warren Robinett” popped up. When this was discovered by a consumer, the director of software development argued to leave the message in the game and even encouraged programmers to put other such surprises in their games for consumers to find, like Easter eggs on an Easter egg hunt.

For more exciting flavours such a popcornand chocolate chip cookies you should check out MONIN’s syrup range, they have flavours available to suit any cocktail or mocktail!
