Advantages: Sticky sugary filling
Disadvantages: the cost
Cadburys creme eggs are a symbol of there own, there is nothing quite like one and easter just wouldn't be easter without one. I always know when its that time of year again when they start appearing on the shelves in big baskets full of them, multi packs of six or the ultimate for any cadbury's creme egg fan...the Creme egg easter egg! I have to admit that the design is very inventive, with a white part and a yellow part thats just like a real egg. This yolk-like sugary centre i think is just a little bit sickly, but looks so effective its difficult to dislike. It's then covered in just enough chocolate to leave you wanting a bit more. To be honest i can't decide what it is about Creme eggs that makes them so special but they are certainly different from any other chocolate.
The slogan 'How do you eat yours?' adds to the appeal, encouraging people to find more inventive ways to eat them, even though its impossible not to end up in a sticky mess when eating one.
The problem with Creme eggs is there cost! In tesco at the moment they retail at 40p for a single, £1.19 for a three pack and £2.29 for a pack of six and is it my imagination or are they getting smaller! There's really not really a lot there for your money and to be honest a bar of regular chocolate would be much more cost effective and last a lot longer.
However although they maybe are really just a clever gimmick, i would agree that there is nothing else quite like them. Anyone who has never tried one i would highly recommend that they do so. There is something a little bit special about sticking your finger in all that goo.
Summary: something special about a creme egg
