The quintessential Easter confectionary. Much to the annoyance of a lot of people, these are only sold during Easter, and at that time are the best selling chocolates in England, at least according to Cadbury.
I’m sure everyone is familiar with what you get here, a foil wrapped chocolate egg, inside the egg is a whipped fondant cream, resembling of course, a real egg, with a white and orange fondant ‘yolk’. Egg whites are actually used to make these, though they’re right near the end of the ingredients list.
The adverts for these ask ‘How do you eat yours?’, showing a multitude of different people eating Creme Eggs in a multitude of different ways. Strangely enough everyone I know, including myself, just eats the damn thing normally. No dipping stuff in, or licking out the creme, instead just chomping away at it.
It’s hard to describe the taste of these, because if I’m honest…there isn’t much of one. It’s very sweet, and of course chocolatey, but there seems to be a distinct lack of any discernable taste. But something keeps making you want to buy them, and it’s no doubt the extreme amounts of sugar in these babies.
These are a little sickly, but if eaten on an empty stomach then I find I can keep it down alright, otherwise I’m usually not feeling too well after eating it. Still, when it’s Easter, get these in, because they are good and you won’t be getting them at any other time of the year.
