It’s that time of year again! For a limited period only, Cadbury’s Creme Eggs are back. This means that once again it’s time for everybody’s favourite Easter pastime – complaining that Creme Eggs aren’t as big as they used to be when they were kids…
We certainly have vivid childhood memories of the chocolate at the top being so thick you could hardly bite through it. But did the Creme Egg change, or did we? Are they really smaller, or is it just our memory playing tricks on us?
It’s hard to say for sure – unfortunately we don’t have any ancient Creme Eggs to compare with. But what we can tell you is that this year’s crop weigh in at 40g each, making them a handy little treat. They’re made with the Cadbury’s milk chocolate, and the inside is as sticky, gooey and overwhelmingly sweet as ever.
According to surveys, this is the most famous confectionery item in the UK – and for the few months of the year that they’re on sale, the most popular. Cadbury’s sell a staggering 200 million of them annually – over 1.5 million a day!
If you’ve never tried a Cadbury’s Creme Egg, now’s your chance! Every child in Ireland and the UK knows that they’re one of the best things about the run-up to Easter. They usually turn up in the shops early in the New Year, and make those dark, dreary winter days just a little bit brighter and more exciting. Bite off the top and you’ll find the inside filled with a fondant cream which looks just like a real egg, with a white and a yolk.
Note that what we are selling here is the authentic British Cadbury’s Creme Egg, not the inferior versions from the United States, Canada or elsewhere. If you’ve only ever tried those, you need to experience the real thing – you don’t know what you’re missing!
