Cadbury has been accused of airbrushing faith by not including the word Easter on promotional material for egg hunts with the National Trust.

The hunts were previously called Easter Egg Trails, but this year they are called Cadbury Eggs Hunts.

Theresa May has also criticised the chocolate company for the move, calling it "absolutely ridiculous."

Cadbury hit back at the comments, stating its packaging makes regular reference to Easter so it is not trying to 'airbrush' the festival.

The National Trust has also denied downplaying Easter, claiming it has more than 13,000 references to Easter on its website.

However many people on Twitter appear to have made up their minds - and come down hard against Cadbury.
