An oversized chocolate egg was unveiled Thursday morning in the CBC studios, created especially for the St. John's Morning Show.

Brent Smith, with the Newfoundland Chocolate Company, said the egg was a special project that took a lot of commitment.

According to Smith, the whole project took about 12 hours of work to complete.

The egg was painted with a St. John's theme, featuring The Rooms, Cabot Tower, and the CBC building, among other things.

Smith said the egg was over a foot in height, and weighed more than three pounds.
