Review of "Cadbury Creme Eggs"
Cadbury’s Crème Eggs have been around for as long as I can remember – for part of the year, at least. They are one of my very, very favourite chocolate indulgences, and I am staring at one as I write, anticipating its loveliness and dying to get this op written so that I can sit back and enjoy it for the (very) short time it will last.Each egg comes in a colourful metallic wrapping and is a white and yellow sticky, sugary, gooey fondant covered in an egg-shaped (what else?) thick Cadbury’s chocolate shell. It is about the size of a medium sized real egg but much, much nicer. In fact the advantages of the Cadbury’s Crème Egg over the real hen’s egg are numerous. For example:
Real eggs need cooking; Cadbury’s Crème Eggs do notReal eggs often break before you get them home; Cadbury’s Crème Eggs do not
Real eggs get slime all over your hands when you crack them open which you then have to wash off; Cadbury’s Crème Eggs get sticky fondant and melted chocolate over your hands which you can then lick off slowly and luxuriously with no need for soap and waterReal eggs are often covered in straw and hen’s passage detritus; Cadbury’s Crème Eggs are not
Everyone has their own way of eating Cadbury’s Crème Eggs. I generally bite off the top half and eat it, and then pop the bottom half into my mouth and eat that too.I have been known to eat them whole, but that was in the old days when they tasted better.
Tasted better?!?Yes. Cadbury’s changed the recipe several years back, and though Crème Eggs are still lovely, they are unbelievably not AS lovely as they used to be. I can’t quite tell you what it was that made them lovelier, but they were somehow more gooey and the fondant had more taste.
There also used to be a Cadbury’s Crème Egg full of CHOCOLATE FONDANT too, in a metallic tartan wrapper, but I haven’t seen one of those for years. I always considered them to be the grown-ups version of the Crème Egg, and would love one now that I’m a grown-up myself, but alas they seem to have gone out of production.Nutrition wise, each egg is 39 g and contains 163 cals and 5.7 grammes of fat. But who cares? Sometimes the calorie/enjoyment trade-off is worth it, and this is such a case.
