High-end chocolate boutiques, confiseries (candy shops), pâtisseries, and 5-star hotels create limited-edition over-the-top Easter eggs. Some are meant to amuse, others are geared toward children and families. And some are truly works of art (with price tags to match).

In French, Easter eggs are oeufs de Pâques. And the tradition of window-shopping in Paris to admire the vast array of treats is called faire du léche-vitrine. Implying that one has to resist the urge to lick the displays.

In England, in addition to Easter hampers and other treats, there are also chic chocolate eggs.
