The Pope was presented with a huge chocolate Easter egg in the Vatican yesterday.
The egg was made by Cremona-based Tosca which specialises in oversized treats. The company donated a 1,000-kilogram panettone to inaugurate the millennium on New Year’s Eve in 1999.
The Easter egg stands at six and a half feet tall and weighs about the quarter of a tonne. It is decotated with the Pope’s coat of arms.
The Pontiff donated the egg to a juvenile prison in Rome.
