Disadvantages: A bit sickly, high in caloies
It's getting to that time of year again when we are all surrounded by the temptation of chocolate in it egg shaped form! My main weaknesses are these little beauties and Cadburys Mini Eggs. Cadburys Crème Eggs are in shops all year round so I don't know why I feel the need to overindulge just because Easter is just around the corner!
Ok, so you don't need to be a rocket scientist to work this one out, these little chocolate delights are egg shaped! They are wrapped in purple, red and yellow foil which you peel off to reveal your eggy delight. I have been frustrated on more than one occasion when the egg seemed to have seeped some of its sticky filling and the foil had stuck to the chocolate and I have had to pick it off in tiny little pieces!
The crème eggs consist of a nice thick chocolate shell with a whit and yellow 'gooy' filling, the colours to mimic a real egg (no, really I hear you say!!) Once you bit the top off you are presented with this stick substance that tastes very sickly but oh so good! You will be pleased to hear that the taste bears no resemblance to an egg which is just as well for me as I can't stand 'real' eggs! Cadbury's old advertising campaign was headed by the slogan 'how do you eat yours' as everyone seemed to have a different way of eating them. Some people bite the top off and lick and suck the sugary sticky inside out whilst others eat them in two bit bites! I personally take a couple of smaller mouthfuls until about half the egg is left and then m last mouthful is to devourer the remains in one go!
I unwrapped the egg ever so carefully to try and read the nutritional info for you but I still managed to tear it, even on my second attempt (that was a good excuse to eat two if I ever heard one!). I gave up and visited Cadbury's website at www.cadbury.co.uk and found the following information:
Per egg (39g):
27.7g carbohydrate (25.4g of which sugars)
6g fat (3.7g of which is saturated)
I was surprised to see fibre in there, are they good for me then? Maybe not with all those calories and fat! I only wish they weren't so scrummy as I have just eaten two and feel quite sick now! The things I do in the name of research! I am now trying to work out how many lengths of the pool I need to swim tomorrow night to burn off my double dosage!
In summary these are definitely one of my favourite chocolates and should be fully appreciated at all times of the year, not just at Easter! They may be a bit sickly for some people though and may not be suitable for children as they are not free from artificial colours.
Summary: A lovely treat!
