Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Egg
Advantages: Lovely Cadbury chocolate
Disadvantages: None if eaten in moderation
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.
Summary: A lovely treat.
