Everyone at Newsround was jealous that Ricky was visiting a chocolate factory - but we weren't envious of the hairnet he had to wear!
This factory is trying to cut down on its packaging. Here's how they make the eggs. First melted chocolate is poured into moulds.
Then chocolate eggs are left to harden.
The Easter eggs then travel on a conveyor belt to the next stage.
The eggs are covered in foil then travel a bit further along at the Nestle factory in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
The people in the factory pack the eggs and Smarties into new boxes which don't use any plastic and use less cardboard.
The Easter eggs are almost finished. Special nests keep the egg safe instead of plastic.
Finally the eggs are packed into boxes. The new boxes are smaller than usual so more can fit into one lorry and be transported in one go, which helps with pollution.
So after spending the day at the factory, surely Ricky has had enough chocolate?
Of course not! There may be less packaging but it's still REALLY yummy! Other companies are also cutting down on packaging - Ricky wants to investigate them all!
