Forged in the fires of Sally's Sweet Shop from the shells of a thousand expired others, the Chocolate Egg is a limited edition item of which no more will be produced. On the momentous day when the final Chocolate Egg has been consumed, Torn's citizens will be forced to seek happiness elsewhere, through love, hate, the pursuit of knowledge, or the consumption of literally any other candy.
Effect
Increases happiness by 50 and booster cooldown by 30 minutes.
Type
Candy

Chocolate Egg is a Candy item that was released on 23 March 2023. All colored Easter Eggs and Gold Easter Eggs were converted to Chocolate Eggs when the item was released. This was due to an overhaul of the annual Easter Egg Hunt where colored eggs' effects were made more powerful.

Obtaining

Any colored or Gold Easter Egg in players' inventory, Bazaar, Display Case, Item Market listings, Parcels, or Faction Armory on 23 March 2023 were replaced by Chocolate Eggs. New Chocolate Eggs cannot be obtained through any other means but can be traded between players.

Usage

Eating a Chocolate Egg will increase a player's happiness by 50 and increase Booster Cooldown by 30 minutes.

Buffs

The Voracity branch of Faction upgrades has ten different upgrades for Candy happiness gains in 5% increments.

The 'Absorption" 7* special at Grocery Stores gives 10% extra happiness from the usage of the Chocolate Egg.

Booster Cooldown incurred from usage of any item is reduced by 10% from the "Fast Metabolism" 3* special at Grocery Stores and 25% from the "Professional Metabolism" 10* special at Restauraunts.

Like all Candy items, the Chocolate Egg provides triple the regular happiness gains starting from 12 hours before, to 12 hours after, World Diabetes Day (November 14.)
