A 73-year-old British woman by the name of Judith Bowen has been reported have a 56-year-old chocolate Easter egg that she has kept in her possession in honor of her late mother. MSN reported on Monday, March 18 that Bowen has held on to the candy simply because it holds so much sentimental value to her.
Bowen claims that she spotted the 56-year-old Easter egg in a store window when she was only 17- years old. Judith reveals her personal story of how she had cashed her paycheck, and went into the shop to purchase the chocolate Easter egg for mother as a gift.
"She was so thrilled when I gave it to her that she put it on display on the sideboard," Bowen said. "She got it out every Easter." Bowen discovered the egg, still in the sideboard, when she cleaned out her mother's house after her death.
