New To The Chocotravaganza Exchange? Here's How It Works

The Chocotravaganza Exchange is our annual February event. Here's how it works.

  • Get Chocolate Boxes from feeding creatures around Egg Cave
  • Head over to the Exchange HQ and send Chocolate Boxes to other players and your friends
  • Using the Chocolate Boxes that you have received from others during the Exchange, get exclusive love- and heart-themed prizes, including the Tine, from the Prize Shop
  • Use the Exchange HQ to keep up to date on who has sent you what (so maybe you can return the favor!)

The Exchange will be open to collect Chocolate Boxes February 14-21. After that, you will have more time to spend your remaining Chocolate Boxes in the Prize Shop.

New Prizes This Year: Tine

This year, the incredibly popular Tine has returned to celebrate its 10 year anniversary. You can obtain it through the Chocotravaganza Exchange.

New Prizes This Year: New Travels

There are four newcomer Travel prizes as part of the Exchange.

megadash • 14 Feb 2020, 1:12 AM

Feel free to feed my FEEDING PEN here and anything on @Megadash_01 & @theSkyTownStables. I'll keep a 1:1 return ratio on all chocolates, but higher bunches get priority.

My whole cove is feedable, feel free to send chocolates! I prefer 5:5 or 10:10 but I'll return any sent! So stoked to see the Tine available for people, definitely a super sweet gift, EC Staff

united_states • 14 Feb 2020, 1:50 AM

This cove is feed friendly and I return all chocolates received. Let’s all worked hard to get that Tine!

wavypavy • 14 Feb 2020, 1:56 AM

oh, very exciting

decay • 14 Feb 2020, 1:59 AM

Feel free to feed this cove (:

pet_cemetery • 14 Feb 2020, 2:45 AM

Would it be against the rules to make a thread offer EC/Pets for chocolate? I really want to get enough chocolate for a Valentine's Tine. Its been a major dreamy of mine but the Tine was so unattainable. This may be my only chance

murfijs • 14 Feb 2020, 2:56 AM

feel free to click my creatures to get chocolate.

anabanana • 14 Feb 2020, 3:08 AM

NOOOO WAYYY o.O It's one of my favorite critters!!! Thank you so much

superunloved • 14 Feb 2020, 3:32 AM

Good luck everyone about time to bring back retire creatures tine are so hard to trade love the fairness Only came back for this event ?

brick • 14 Feb 2020, 3:48 AM

This is a very fun event! Thanks so much for this! I'm very excited about the Sweetoth and will get a Tine if I can c:

andreita • 14 Feb 2020, 4:10 AM

OMG EggCave! Getting a Tine will be hard but I'll try my best! I already started feeding so any chocobox will be happily returned since idk who to send first c: and happy V day to everyone!

mami • 14 Feb 2020, 4:41 AM

if anyone wants to exchange boxes feel free to send - Ive crawled out of hibernation for a tine

wild_wonders • 14 Feb 2020, 5:19 AM

@iia Honestly I must agree! I'm so glad that others will get a chance at getting one, but I do still find it a little unfair for the people who have one, like I worked so hard to get mine just for the rarity and value to be halved, now I'll probably not even be able to get back

wild_wonders • 14 Feb 2020, 5:20 AM

Anywhere near the value I traded for mine... Also I feel it's a bit underpriced, people used to take years to get tines and now people have gotten them in under a day. I'm happy for them but honestly I feel like even if they doubled the chocolate price of tines it would still

wild_wonders • 14 Feb 2020, 5:21 AM

Be a lot better than paying 60-80kcc worth of pets for one??

mami • 14 Feb 2020, 5:27 AM

@wild_wonders honestly the choco prices have always been wack; just compare the cave monthly prices to the rest lol. frankly Im very happy with this; not everyone can speedfeed and easily go for 10k+
