In pictures: Kids check out a chocolate wall!

Chocolate billboard

If you've got a sweet tooth, you'll love this..... a massive billboard made entirely from chocolate has been put up in London for Easter.

It's covered with giant eggs which are stuck on with even more chocolate and a sticky sugar spray.

Passers-by are being encouraged to help themselves to the chocolate, but getting the eggs off isn't as easy as it looks.....

Elen hitting the chocolate billboard with a hammer

Time to take a different approach and try smashing them off with a mini sweet hammer instead.

Kim eating chocolate

Success! Kim, 6, said he'd been eating "lots and lots and lots of chocolate" and was hoping to get loads more for Easter.

Chocolate rabbits

It took 390kg of chocolate to make the board, which is covered in giant eggs and big chocolate bunnies.

Megan eating a chocolate rabbit

Megan, 8, enjoyed munching the ears off this chocolate rabbit and said she'd had loads of fun knocking the chocolate off the wall.


The huge billboard is nearly twice the size of Newsround's Gavin, who wasted no time getting stuck in....

Luckily, Megan was on hand to show him the best way to crack the eggs.


Time to find out whether the chocolate tasted as good as it looked - all in the name of research of course!

Brownies with Gavin

These brownies from Brentwood in Essex had a double surprise on their day trip to London - they got to try out the chocolate AND meet Gavin!

Gavin interviewing Kitty for Newsround

Back to work, and Gavin persuaded Kitty, 7, to stop scoffing chocolate long enough to have a chat for Newsround. She said her favourite part was smashing the eggs but she felt sick after eating so much!
