"One of my favourites!"

Its my favourite time of year Easter because i love creme eggs! I wish they were available all year round, but they usually start coming out just before christmas until the end of april. So i only get to have these for 4 months of the year!

Creme eggs are made by cadbury's who make the best chocolate ever! I dont like nestle or cheaper brands. They come in many different varieties, you can buy them individually, which usually cost about 50p each. Thats about the same as you would pay for a normal chocolate bar so they are reasonably priced. Last week in asda they were on offer for 20p! So i bought 5 for £1 which i thought was a bargain!

You can also buy these in packs of three, six, or twelve. They also come as part of a easter egg box. You get a full cadbury's easter egg and two creme eggs for £1 in asda at the moment! I am suprised that so near to easter they did not put the prices up, as they usually do. I am hoping that now after easter they will be reduced even more so i can stock up on them as they wont be out for much longer!

A creme egg, as you all know, is a chocolate egg with a soft fondant centre. The centre is the best bit! You cant eat too many of these, as they are very sweet and sickly. They are wrapped in a red, yellow and purple foil, which i find sometimes hard to get off. The foil sometimes sticks to the egg, and you end up with sticky fingers, so sometimes they can be messy to eat!

You need to store these in a cool dry place, i put mine in the fridge as they are nicer than out of the cupboard, as they go too soft and tend to be more messy!

Creme eggs are very high in calories, with 175 per egg! Cadbury's try to justify this by stating on the box that they can be enjoyed as a treat, as part of a healthy balanced lifestyle. They also have a website where you can read more about eating healthy - www.betreatwise.org.uk

You can also return the product to cadbury's if you are not happy with it, which shows cadbury's are a reliable company.

As long as you dont have these too often, they are a nice treat! You can't beat creme eggs, i just wish they sold them all year round!
