My husband has always loved Cadbury Creme Eggs and usually for Easter I will buy him one, this year I really struggled to find one and ended up buying an alternative, however from my parents he did actually received a Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Egg. I also like Cadbury Creme Egg's, to be honest I like most chocolate so actually ended up sharing the egg with him which was as tasty as I thought it would be.
The Cadbury Creme Egg comes in a rectangle cardboard box, and there is no failing to notice that this is Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Egg. The front of the box has a large yellow splat in the top left hand corner with Cadbury written inside a purple oval and the words "Creme Egg" written underneath, again in dark purple. The front of the box is divided into two halves with the left hand side of the box being red and the left hand side being dark purple. The whole of the front of the box is covered in what I would describe as egg splats or cracked eggs and also a picture of 2 Creme Eggs individually wrapped. The only other thing on the front of the box is an egg shaped hole allowing you to see the contents of the box inside, there is not a massive amount of information on the front of the box, however it is colourful and stands out and as I have mentioned you cannot fail to see that this is a Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Egg. The back of the box is the same as the front in that it is divided into two colours, red and dark purple, and has the same yellow splat at the top of it. There is a white square in the middle of the box containing all of the product information such as the ingredients, nutritional information and allergy warnings. There is also a sentence about what is inside the box written on the back of the box, all of this information is clearly written and set out so that it is easy to read.
Inside the Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Egg box you received a hollow chocolate egg, this came wrapped in a dark purple foil with Cadbury written all over it, from what I can remember there was a pattern on the outside of the chocolate egg, the egg actually came already split in half but was held together in one egg shape by the foil it was wrapped in. When I first tried hollow milk chocolate egg you could not mistake that it was made from Cadbury chocolate, it had a lovely creamy taste to it just as the bars of Cadbury chocolate taste. The hollow chocolate egg was of a standard thickness compared to other Easter Eggs and within the egg you do et a decent amount of chocolate in the egg. As well as the larger hollow milk chocolate egg you also receive 2 smaller Cadbury Creme Eggs, again these are the same as what you can buy individually in the shops. The Cadbury Creme Eggs come wrapped in red and purple foil, the eggs themselves are basically a milk chocolate shell of an egg, again made from the same Cadbury Milk Chocolate as the larger egg, these are then filled with a sweet fondant, these are designed to look like the inside of a real egg so the fondant is mainly white with a yellow yolk in the middle. As I have said I do like Cadbury Creme Eggs so did really enjoy these, although they are quite sickly with the sweet fondant filling.
The nutritional information was clearly labelled on the back of the box and split into two sections, one for the hollow milk chocolate egg and the other for the Cadbury Creme Eggs which was very useful as it meant you could see exactly what you were eating.
Milk Chocolate Hollow Egg (Per half egg)
* Calories - 265
* Protein - 3.8g
* Carbohydrates - 28.4g
* fat - 15.0g
Cadbury Creme Egg (Per Egg)
* Calories - 180
* Protein - 1.6g
* Carbohydrates - 28.5g
* Fat - 6.3g
When I read the nutritional information which I tend to do with most things I was quite surprised. I really expected the Cadbury Creme Egg to be higher in calories and fat compared to the half of a hollow milk chocolate egg, purely due to the sugary fondant filling in the Cadbury Creme Eggs, however this was not the case and the Creme Egg was quite a bit lower in fat and calorie content. I do think these levels are quite high for both as something to snack on a regular basis, however once in a while is ok as a treat.
This was clearly listed on the back of the box along with the other product information, this was clearly labelled so that it could be quickly identified and included the information that the products inside the box
* Contains Milk
* May contain Egg, Soya and Nuts
Other information on the back of the box is that this product is suitable for vegetarians which for me is ideal, I knew the chocolate would be ok but I wasn't too sure about the fondant filling and over the years I have been surprised at the everyday foods that contain animal products, a lot of the time it is items I would not imagine would contain animal products so it was useful to know that this particular Easter Egg was suitable for me to eat.
Price & Availability
Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Egg is available in most supermarkets around the Easter period, the price does vary depending on where it is purchased from but basically price wise its similar to other eggs in the same range.
Overall I would definitely recommend the Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Egg, I particularly enjoyed both the milk chocolate hollow egg as well as the fondant fill Creme Eggs, I knew that I would enjoy these as I love chocolate and have always enjoyed Cadbury Chocolate. I would say that this particular Easter Egg was good value for money. This particular egg is suitable for both adults and children and is an ideal size for sharing. I did really enjoy this Easter egg and would certainly recommend it to others.
With Easter just having passed, I received a few Easter eggs my favourite of which is the Creme Egg easter egg.
Most Easter eggs these days are pretty small compared with the ones I had when I was much younger. A 'medium' sized egg is 178g and comes with two creme eggs. They can be purchased from a variety of stores at the following prices:
You can also buy a 'giant' sized egg for about £10 and it is 532g.
The chocolate tastes like your standards Easter egg and is thin enough to snap off easily. The egg is divided into two halves, with a small groove all the way around the centre vertically, which makes it even easier to break them apart if you want to only eat only a little at a time. It comes in a purple foil with 'Cadburys' written on which means that the chocolate stays fresh even after opening so long as you re-wrap it afterwards.
I like Cadbury's chocolate so I'm glad that the chocolate of the egg is pretty similar to Dairy Milk. I find some Easter eggs, especially those that aren't from Cadburys and are often a bit pricier, are a little too rich, and eating that much chocolate is filling enough in the first place. So, because the chocolate is just the right balance between great tasting and cocoa content, it tastes so much better in my opinion.
I'd recommend buying the smaller sized Easter eggs because despite their smaller size, they are undoubtedly better value for money. You could buy 3 in a deal in your local supermarket for the price of one large egg, which is often enough for every child in the family (or at least it was for us). You can also knock off a little extra off the price if you're patient and wait it out till right up until Easter, but this does mean you risk not getting the brand or type of Easter egg you want.
An elderly friend of my mums always buys me a Cadburys Creme Easter Egg every year. She has done this every year ever since I was little. Unfortunately I hate Cadburys Creme Eggs! When I was little my mum used to tell her every year that I didn't like them, but it made no difference whatsoever, she still continued to buy them every year. My mum eventually gave up telling her in the end. I just smile sweetly, say thank you very much, and take the Easter Egg. This year is no exception I've recieved (and eaten) my annual Cadburys Creme Egg Easter Egg already.
This was a mediium sized Easter Egg. The box stated that the weight was 178g. The Easter Egg also came with 2 individually wrapped Cadburys Creme Eggs - yuck!! I've been a bit of a greedy pig and I've eaten the Easter Egg already - it was delicious. The egg itself was a hollow easter egg made from lovely creamy Cadburys milk chocolate, wrapped in blue shiny foil with the Cadburys logo all over. I found that the chocolate of the egg wasn't as thick as the Cadburys Dairy Milk Easter Egg that I've just reviewed, but it was thick enough, it certainly wasn't thin chocloate. I gave the 2 creme eggs away to a friend that loves them.
I have actually seen these in Sainburys and they are currently on offer at just £1.00, the price banners state that they have been reduced from £3.00 to £1.00. I reckon that £1.00 is an absolute bargain for the size of the egg, and the fact that you get 2 creme eggs in it as well (obviously only if you like creme eggs!) They would be perfect as small inexpensive Easter gifts, especially if you have a lot to buy. It definately looks worth more than £1.00.
My only gripe with this (apart from not liking creme eggs!) is that as seems to be the case with all Easter Eggs this does have an excessive amount of packaging, but it's not the worst that I've seen.
Although I personally don't like creme eggs and gave them away, I did like the Easter Egg itself, and if you can pick them up for just £1.00 in Sainsburys then I do think that they deserve 5stars.
With Easter just passing, I have got quite a few easter eggs that I am slowly eating my way through. The one I am currently on is this Crème Egg one by Cadburys. When bought it would cost you about £2 for the egg.
--- Packaging ---
The chocolate egg and the crème eggs come in a cardboard box that is 18.5cm x 8cm x 8cm in size. The entire box is brightly coloured in red and purple which makes it very eye catching and is also the same colours as those found on the smaller crème eggs. On the front there is a small oval hole that allows you to see the foil wrapped chocolate egg inside. The sides have various product information on and so does the rear.
The pack contains 1 large hollow chocolate egg and 2 regular sized crème eggs. Apart from the cardboard box, the only other wrapping used is the foil on the eggs, which makes the wrapping easily recyclable.
--- The Eggs ---
On opening the box, you can lift the large egg out straight away as there is no plastic wrapping supporting it. It feels very solid, but when you tap it you can hear that it is hollow. The egg is 12cm x 7cm at the widest, which seems to be the normal size for eggs similar in price to this one. Underneath the egg, there are two crème eggs on the bottom of the box.
The large hollow egg is wrapped in silver foil that has the word Cadbury written all over it. It looks very nice and attractive, but is also easy to open. On peeling back the foil, you are confronted with a chocolate egg that is already split into two halves. The egg has a lovely smell of chocolate and it is a nice brown colour, exactly the same as normal milk chocolate. The chocolate egg is about 3mm thick, which means that there is a good amount of chocolate in the egg.
As I put mine in the fridge, the chocolate was nice and hard which meant that it was easy to break without much mess. This gave it a firm bite to it when you put it in your mouth. The chocolate is very nice with a sweetness and slight bitterness to it, just like there regular Dairy Milk bar. On the whole the egg is very nice to eat and didn't last me long at all!
On unwrapping the foil of the crème egg, you are confronted with a milk chocolate egg that has a very basic pattern on it. As I put mine in the fridge before eating it, the chocolate was quite hard, however if you eat it straight after purchase, the chocolate won't be as hard. Once you have bitten through the chocolate outer, which is about 3mm thick, you are confronted with a lovely yummy centre that resembles a real eggs yolk. The centre is mainly a white fondant with an orange fondant in the centre. The eggs are about three quarters full, which means it doesn't spill everywhere when you initially bite into them.
The chocolate outer has the lovely milk chocolate taste that you would expect from Cadburys chocolate. The inner has a thick consistency that is quite creamy and sweet. I don't find that it has much flavour, but I really like the sweet and sticky nature of it.
--- Where to Buy? ---
Now that Easter has passed, it will be harder to get hold of these Easter Eggs as they are only sold over the Easter period. However if you try some of the larger supermarkets, they may have some on offer still.
--- Overall ---
For the price, this is quite good value for an Easter egg as you get a nice amount of chocolate egg and 2 full sized crème eggs. This makes for a very nice Easter egg overall for anyone of any age who likes crème eggs. I am going to give this 5/5 as the chocolate and the crème eggs can't be beaten on taste or quality!
Thank for reading.

Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Egg
With Easter just gone, I had the sheer delight of sampling some lovely Easter Eggs, both my own and my little ones as chocolate is not a favourite of theirs (unusual children!!). One egg in particular I think I must have had many Easters before as it is possibly one of my favourite chocolate treats.
The Cadbury Crème Egg is a well known and well loved chocolate treat, and just as nice a Easter Egg (though not as sweet!). The Egg can be picked up from £3.00 in some places before Easter right down to a simple £0.99p both before and after Easter - always look in places such as the Pound Land and Wilkinsons for great Easter Egg bargains!
The Easter egg is a mid-sized egg so perfect for both adults and children without being too big or small. Within the egg packaging, which is well recognised as a Crème Egg design, is a simple chocolate egg with lovely creamy Cadbury chocolate, as well as two usual sized Crème Eggs themselves (the best part in my opinion!). A chocoholic's delight!
As with many Easter Eggs, there is a small puzzle on the back of the packaging for young children; in this case, a wordsearch puzzle which has an Easter theme. This puzzle is very easy, though not easy enough for my little one and too easy for me. In any case, the packaging was ripped apart in the rush to eat the egg so the puzzle became null and void!
I absolutely love this Easter Egg! Apart from the fact that the actual main egg is a Cadbury make, there is nothing really different about it, though unlike some cardboard tasting eggs, this holds a lovely Cadbury creamy taste to it, and the two Crème Eggs that come with it is worth ten cheaper eggs! At the lower price of £0.99p you are really getting the two Crème Eggs with the larger Easter egg free! A real bargain!
Now every now and then something really extraordinary happens, well stupid actually but that's one cracking word extraordinary. I was in ASDA the other day and felt I needed cheering up after recent events, a crème egg popped into my mind and it was an almost certainty to be purchased.
Crème Easter Egg
As you will know Easter is round the corner and the shops have as usual begun selling Easter eggs very early. The normal sized eggs are currently retailing at £1, which isn't too bad considering. Anyway I spied a Crème Easter Egg for you guessed it £1. Now a crème egg retails at 50p or there abouts. So when I looked at the packaging of bright red and blue and saw that inside there was two crème eggs I was a little bamboozled.
Two times 50p = £1, check.....................so the egg is free, that can't be right can it. Two times 50p = £1, check........yep a free egg. The reasonable sized egg shaped chocolate egg is about 4-5 inches long and 3-4 inches wide and wrapped in purple Cadbury tinfoil. On removing this quite nice foil you are left with a delicious looking chocolate feast. There is a seam right round the middle lengthwise and a quick tap on something solid cause the egg to split into two halves.
Each half is quite thick at about 3-4mm I'd say; I was eating it before I even thought about the measurement. It is the usual smooth creamy sweet Cadbury chocolate (but for some reason and this is applicable to ALL Easter eggs) it tastes better in egg form. It breaks off in nice gob sized chunks and melts seductively on the tongue.
Once you have had your fill here you can now digress and get totally absorbed in the delight that is a crème egg. The 2 inch long 1'5 inch wide egg sized chocolate confection is oozing class as it sits and tempts me. It knows that I know that it knows it getting eaten. The soft sweet white and yellow fondant crème is just so wonderful there ain't a word to say how good it is. It looks like the inside of a real egg, but is the inside of an egg made in heaven. When the fondant and chocolate mix the sensation of smooth chocolate a sweet not quite as smooth fondant has me dancing.
I love Easter and the eggs; I love Easter and the chocolate, I love the free eggs that are apparently available, unless of course we are getting ripped of on the real price of a crème egg. For £1 this is a good buy for the kids for Easter, and similar such offers on other eggs are available too......................can it get much better than this.
Easter is a pretty ridiculous holiday if you're an atheist. Thankfully commercialism has worked its magic and we can just use it as an excuse to enjoy a long weekend off work and gorge ourselves on chocolate and cakes. Cadburys celebrate Zombie Jesus Day by releasing limited edition chocolate products, of which Creme Eggs are everybody's favourite. Prices for Easter eggs fluctuate rapidly as the day approaches, and a few weeks before Easter these were available from my local supermarket at 99p each, which was then raised to £2.99 or you could take advantage of the new special offer and buy 2 for £5. Keep an eye out for the offers and grab one cheap while you can.
Packaging for this type of product is always very colourful and competing for attention with the other ranges available. Creme eggs are always my favourite at this time of year and I trust Cadburys to produce a high quality item, even though it's just a gimmick. The cardboard box is colourful and matches the creme egg foil wrapping. The large logo is eye-catching and it's very easy to find them on the shelf. Inside the box there is a plastic insert that contains your chocolatey goodness. Both the box and the plastic, along with the foil packaging can be recycled so do your bit and don't bin it.
For your money you are getting 2 creme eggs of the standard size, and a Dairy Milk chocolate easter egg. Creme eggs are pretty much unique to the market, and the combination of gorgeous Dairy Milk chocolate with sweet and sticky eggy fondant filling make this an irresistible treat for anyone with a sweet tooth. With the 'how do you eat yours?' campaign they have gained more popularity and are fun to eat. The larger Dairy Milk egg is a strong childhood memory, these were always the best and I love everything about them. They are quite large and hollow, and are made using the same Dairy Milk recipe that forms the regular bars. The sides of the egg have a cute spring themed design picturing a baby bird, and are utterly cute. It's a shame to eat it but that's the whole point after all. The chocolate is sweet and satisfying and the chocolates in this box work well together.
I've had these eggs each year as long as I can remember, and they're a yummy treat that I always look forward to. It's a great gift for kids and adults alike, or just buy one yourself and scoff away!
One of my favourite chocolate based treats are Cadbury's creme eggs, so what better way to celebrate the rebirth of our lord than with a creme egg easter egg.
The packaging is a colourful red and purple with a playful splash of yolk on the front for good measure. A claim printed on the side says that due to recent packaging reductions over 2000 creme egg lorries have been removed from the road, so these are green eggs. On the back of the box there is a nice little word search.
Now on to the main event, the eggs themselves. Each Creme egg-egg box contains one hollow milk chocolate egg, which is just the same as any other cadburys egg. Not a bad thing as most of us know Cadbury's chocolate is ruddy delicious. I might have preferred an easter egg filled with the deliciously sweet creme egg fondant but what are you gonna do?
Along with the large hollow easter egg, you receive two standard sized creme eggs, which I thought was a bit stingey. If you've never had a creme egg (can't imagine there would be that many who haven't) they are about 2-3 inches long, containing a sweet and unique white and yellow fonadant covered in a milk chocolate shell.
I absolutely adore creme eggs so I can't help but reccomend these to everyone, as I say there are only two creme eggs in the box but two creme eggs is always better than no creme eggs : )
It's hardly a secret - at least, it isn't to those of you who have read my earlier review on the subject - that I am immensely fond of Cadbury Creme Eggs. So, when just after Easter I saw one of these Creme Egg Easter Eggs being sold off for 99p in a local discount store (its best before date - actually a "best hatched before" date! - wasn't until July, so no problems there), there wasn't much doubt that I would be snapping it up fast - and, shortly thereafter, snapping it up in a rather different way! Before anyone accuses me of greed, I should say that I only bought one. The fact that there *was* only one on the shelf is neither here nor there...
This is a medium-sized egg, with the box (well, its contents!) weighing 177 grams in all. The packaging is fairly straightforward, with a plastic inner holding the large chocolate egg and the two standard-sized Creme Eggs that come with it, and the outer being a simple cardboard cuboid. I was a little bit disappointed to see that Cadbury had not followed the lead of some of the other manufacturers - Nestlé is one, I believe - and eliminated plastic entirely from the pack. Cardboard and foil is surely enough for a product like this one.
On the back of the pack, which is very brightly coloured in the Creme Egg shades of red, purple and yellow, you get an Easter-themed wordsearch puzzle, which is pretty easy and probably won't keep a child's attention for very long. On the side there's an advert for the National Trust's Easter Egg Trails for children, together with a note saying that Cadbury are also supporting the Make-a-Wish Foundation, a charity which aims to "make wishes come true" for young people with life-threatening illnesses. A very worthy cause, certainly, but I was disappointed not to see any detail about exactly *how* (and how much!) Cadbury would be donating.
Nutrition values... come on, do you really want to know? Let your hair down a bit and live dangerously for a change! But for those people who do have a reason for knowing these stats, half a shell of the big egg provides 265 kcal. There; not so bad, was it? That's only barely more than an ordinary chocolate bar. Mind you, the 15g of fat is a bit of a different matter! If you prefer to stick to the little Creme Eggs, they have 175 kcal each and 6.1g of fat - but they are immensely sugary, much more so than the large shell. So, pick and choose! Milk, egg and soya are today's Allergy Pack.
As with most large Easter eggs, the Cadbury one is hollow and empty inside. (I think it would be nicer if the Creme Eggs were stored inside it, but in fact they're in a separate part of the plastic packaging.) The two halves came apart quite easily, which has not been my experience with every similar egg, and the chocolate seemed to be in good condition. It's made of proper Dairy Milk, rather than the cheaper stuff used in some filled bars, so is *extremely* nice. Be careful; it's very easy to eat too much! That's less of a problem with Creme Eggs simply because they're so sticky.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the Creme Egg egg (if you see what I mean!) and would certainly buy it again. Okay, so I was paying well under the odds at 99p, and I would have had to think about it had it been sold at its normal price of more than twice that, but it seemed to have most of the ingredients that make an Easter egg work: really nice chocolate, attractive design, a little extra treat (the small Creme Eggs) and a trusted brand name. A few niggles make this a 4.5-star egg really, but I'm bumping it up to a full five because it's just so delicious!
Ive always asked to get this for easter but have only had it once and it was the best easter ive ever had. The chocolate round the creme egg is very similar to dairy milk but the filling is like no other chocolate. Its very clever as the filling is white with orange in the middle so it really does resemble an egg. Its very creamy and i can only really describe it as a creamy icing sugar (thats what its like to me). Depending on where the egg has been stored sometimes it quite runny and sometimes rather thick. I can stand it think as it gets stuck to my teeth and tongue bar.
This easter egg comes wit one big egg that has no filling and two original easter eggs. It costs around £4.99 and, of course, can only be purchased around easter. However you can get easter eggs from sainsbury and tescos all year round.
I went into my locl BP station the other day looking for a creme egg, there were none on the shelves and none at the front so i asked where they were, the person serving told me that they didnt sell them all year round and id have to go to sainsburys. I was shocked! A garage that doesnt sell the worlds best chocolate. I never really think of creme eggs as being for easter only as i have one as much as possible.
Normally eggs are £0.99 each but sometimes there if an offer for 3 for £2. Ive also been browsing ebay and have come across 9 eggs for £4! Not entirely sure if they will make it to me in once piece but will give it ago.
One egg is usually around 39.0g and has..
3.5g which is saturated
25 which is sugar
It has no Vitamin A, Vitamin C or iron but its chocolate so who cares
My sister got a massive bargain today, she went out to play and I gave her £1.00 for the shop to get a drink and some sweets. When she come back in she'd forgot to spend her money so because it was still quite early she went back round to get herself some munchies. When she come back she had a bag bigger than she should have done with the prices in that shop...... she'd nabbed a broken Creme Egg Easter egg for £1.00 instead of the normal price of £4.99!!! It wasn't even THAT broken! lol
In the box there is a medium sized Easter egg and 2 Creme Eggs, the box the egg comes in is made to make you think of Creme Eggs and is in the same bright colours.
The egg is delish, it's made of Cadburys milk chocolate and is sooooooo smooth and creamy. The egg is a lot thicker than it looks and it makes it not matter at all that this Easter egg isn't massive to look at because you're still getting shedloads of chocolate in each bite. The bottom of the egg is the thickest and deffo my fave part because you only need to take little bites to get a strong chocolate taste.
The Creme Eggs are the same as any you buy in the shop. I reckon you all know what a Creme Egg is but in case you don't it's a thick milk chocolate shell with yellow and white fondant inside to make it look like the inside of an egg. They are MADLY sweet and can be sticky as well if you don't eat them quick enough! lol These weren't damaged in the box my sister brought so we had one each while we watched 2012 for the 4th time because she is SO obsessed with it!
I know it's too late for this Easter but if you see any of these Easter eggs knocking about cheap in the shop then I deffo recommond it. In the supermarkets this egg is probably cheaper than £4.99 but like I said this is a little corner shop I'm talking about. I wouldn't have paid that for it but for £1.00 I reckon my sister had the best bargain of her life so far!
I received one of these eggs recently for Easter from a family member. We're all big kids really and still buy each other Easter eggs now and then. It comes in the regular sized easter egg box, with the front of it being split into distinct Cadbury's red and purple colours. The crème egg logo is then in the middle, in a yellow 'splat' shape.
Inside contained a 'hollow milk chocolate egg and two milk chocolate eggs with soft fondant centres'. Although I'm not actually all that keen on crème eggs, I was, for some reason, expecting more like three or four eggs rather than two, so this was a slight disappointment to me.
The egg itself was decently sized - not massive, but what you'd expect. It was wrapped in shiny purple foil which had the Cadbury's logo on it. The egg was nice - typical Cadbury's chocolate but was very thin. As long as you like Cadbury's chocolate, you will enjoy this. It does taste a little 'cheap' I guess, but you can't complain for the price.
These generally sell for around £2, however a couple of days before Easter Sunday I did see them on sale in Morrisons for £0.98, so keep your eye out for a bargain! As always, they were reduced after Easter Sunday also.
The two crème eggs inside were okay. I find crème eggs really rather sickly and find myself not able to really eat a whole one without feeling a little ill, but they were enjoyable (although I definitely couldn't eat both in one sitting!).
The box tells me that they have reduced their packaging which is nice to hear - there is definitely still enough, the egg is protected, as are the crème eggs and they are displayed nicely. It also tells me they are working with The National Trust and Make A Wish foundation.
The back of the box included a word search which is a little bit of fun for children - very simple in that it contained 12 words in a 9x9 grid. However, it did also show you the answers just below on the same side - which, although upside down and it told me to cover them with a piece of paper - was rather frustrating! I think it would have been better for these to be on another side as they ruined the fun a little in my opinion. Personally, it took me less than two minutes to complete, however they are aimed at children!
The nutritional information was per 100g and per half shell, which is always nice because I can never tell how many grams I am eating!
Per half shell, the egg contained:
Per crème egg, they contained:
So really I don't think they are too bad nutritionally, as long as they are just kept as a treat and they're not something to be eating every day!
I got this easter egg this easter and I must say i was a little disappointed by some aspects of it.
I do like the way in which cadburys are trying reduce the amount of packaging which the eggs come with. I think it is important for the chocolate companies to make an effort to try and reduce the amount of cardboard and plastic which come with the eggs. Aswell as this i think that the packaging is nice and colourful, it is easily identifiable on any shelf and its colour would make you pick it over any.
My main gripe is with what accompanies the egg. I think the two creme are even smaller than the ones that you buy in the shops. I was really looking forward to a nice big creme egg or 2 to accompany the main egg but I was very disappointed that they were so small. Aside from this I thought the cadburys chocolate is just delightful. Once you start eating it you just cant stop, which I suppose is a good thing, well not when you have no eggs left.
This egg could have been so much better, the ultimate easter egg but it failed with the pathetic size of the creme eggs. I would not choose this easter egg again or recommend it to anyone.
Every chocoholic loves Cadburys cream eggs they hit our shops just after Christmas and disappear again after Easter.
I was delighted to receive a cream egg Easter egg this year from my partner. We are still big kids and not only buy for the children but for ourselves as well. The one shown in the picture is not the same as the one I received as mine also included a mug which I can happily now drink my Cadburys hot chocolate from.
The packaging to this Easter egg is very bright and vibrant and from the bright red and purple colouring with a yellow splat on the front you instantly know its Cadburys with their very tasty cream egg. Inside the recyclable box is a moulded plastic which is also recyclable, this protects the eggs form breaking in transit and also from stopping the mug from breaking.
The hollow chocolate egg is large in size measuring around 5 inches from to bottom. The chocolate isn't really thin so does take a small amount of pressure to break into. It is wrapped in the traditional Cadburys printed purple tin foil which makes a great sound as you unwrap it from the egg.
The egg is hollow and has a lovely smell of sweet Cadburys chocolate which is like no other chocolate around, it's smooth and heavenly. As it melts away in your mouth you taste a beautiful quality chocolate.
Included in the packaging is a bag of mini cream eggs. These are great for children as the larger versions of these can be messy and hard for children to eat. You get around 10 of these sweet chocolates in the packet each measuring around an inch high and will easily fit into your child's mouth without it hitting the edges and leaving a lovely chocolate covered child. Each cream egg contains a sweet creamy fondant inside which has been coloured white with a yellow blob in look like a real egg.
Overall this was a great Easter egg to receive on Easter morning. He purchased mine from Sainsbury's and was priced at only £3 but depending on where you purchase it from will depend on the price.
I have seen many different Cadburys cream egg Easter eggs about some including the mini eggs and others with a couple of the full size ones. Yet again depending on where you purchase them from will depend on which eggs they will stock.
It's not just an egg, it's a game and an Easter Egg trail all in one.
My favourite chocolates have to be Cadburys Creme Eggs and so I love it when Easter rolls around again and the eggs hit the shelves.
Cadbury has been making chocolate since 1824, when John Cadbury opened his first shop which has now grown to be one of the biggest sellers of chocolate in the world.
According to their website, Cadbury's first introduced a crème-filled egg in 1923 but it wasn't until 1971 that the Cadbury Crème Egg hit the shelves in the form that we know it today.
The best part of a crème egg for me is the inside bit, "the egg," the ooey, gooey, sticky fondant in the middle. It is made to resemble the inside of an egg as it is both yellow and white. However, whenever I eat one of these eggs I manage to get it all over my hands, face, etc. I don't know what it is about the egg shape that makes this happen to me but it always does. It's probably because the shell has a tendency to break quite easily and so the middle always oozes its way out. This is ok if you are at home but if you are in public this is not the most attractive look and so this is where the twisted bar comes in handy.
The Easter Egg version comes in a big box and contains not only a massive hollow egg of pure lovely dairy milk chocolate but 6 Cadbury Creme Eggs! The chocolate in the big egg is as good as ever, lovely and creamy. What I love about eggs like this is that along the joins of the shell the chocolate is really quite thick and chunky and very tasty.
On the back of the box Cadburys tell you that they are working with The National Trust and give you a website, www.eastereggtrail.com where you can find your nearest hunt and when it takes place. This is great if you have kids! There is also a game on the back called Splatter which includes play pieces that you cut out from the box and a game board. There are instructions on how to play the game also.
The packaging is green also. Apparently they state that their Easter packaging reductions across their range to date has enabled Cadburys to remove over 2290 lorry loads from the road!
Now for the nutritional information. Per 1/4 of the shell there are 395 calories, eek and per Creme Egg there are 175 calories so not the healthiest treat but Easter only comes around once a year!
