It’s not long after Christmas and New Year and Cadbury has brought out it best selling seasonal chocolate confectionery (in the UK), the Creme Egg. Cadbury Creme Egg are a thick hollow chocolate egg shaped candy. Inside the walls of chocolate is a white a yellow fondant filling mimicing the albumen and yolk of a real egg.
The eggs are sold by Kraft Foods in all markets except the USA, where Hershey has the marketing rights. In the Bournville factory, near Birmingham, Cadbury turns out a staggering 1.5 million of these palm size confectionery creations. While filled eggs were first manufactured by the Cadbury Brothers in 1923, the Creme Egg in its current form was not introduced until 1963. Initially sold as Fry’s Creme Eggs (incorporating the Fry’s brand), they were renamed “Cadbury’s Creme Eggs” in 1971. There are many varieties on the confectionery shelf including Splats and Creme Egg ice-cream. They’ve catered for the need for Creme Egg, anytime, anywhere and in any form.
The packaging is quite simple but effective. A foil wrapper with bright colours of blue, yellow and red spluttered all over it. The eggs are sold separately or as a set of three or in a big Easter egg selection pack. To stop the lab rats being lab pigs we decided to go with a single serving of the egg. Unwrapping the foil a burst of Cadbury chocolate aroma fills the near by air.
Now there are serveral ways you can eat these little things. Everyone has a different way to another Creme Egg fan. Some like to eat it whole, others like to lick the fondant out, and a few like to crack the top open and dip things into the fondant.
Choose whatever best suits you. They’re creamy, smooth, and delicious. The combination of fondant and chocolate is balanced well so you get enough of each from every bite you take. Go on get yourself a Creme Egg before the 20th April.
