I must start by saying how much I love Cadbury Creme Eggs....now onto the review!
What is it? A Creme Egg for those unfortunate few that have not had the pleasure of tasting one, is an egg sized, egg shaped egg, made of Cadburys chocolate, filled with the most delicious white and yellow fondant, to make it look like the white and yolk of a real egg.
The joy of a Creme Egg is after having it sit in a fridge for a while so the chocolate goes hard, when you unwrap the red and blue foil wrapper; you are then looking at a egg shaped morsel of amazingness. Once you have bitten into the top of the egg, it opens up to show the soft fondant filling.
As asked by the familiar old adverts, 'How do you eat yours?' There are many ways to enjoy your egg, I once tried and failed with the unwrap and insert the whole egg into your mouth in one go approach. While this seemed ok before testing, and even during the unwrapping phase, the problem arose when after inserting the whole egg into my mouth, I chewed and after releasing the fondant I found I could no longer chew, breath or anything due to having far too much confectionary in my mouth. I have never tried this route since and would advise against it unless you are some large mouthed species.
My preferred way to eat said egg is to unwrap half the egg, bite the top off and insert my tongue into the egg removing as much fondant as I can reach, then nibbling the egg down to the level of the fondant and repeat.
For the bad news on eggs: These are now horrendously expensive, shops will charge anywhere from 50p to 80p, which is a rip off I think. 170 calories per egg which I can fit into my day, the worse thing about the beloved egg? They only do them, at Easter or Halloween, when they change the fondant to a green goo. The adverts now make me laugh, but it s not enough of a laugh to lift my sunken spirits that I cannot get hold of them throughout the year.
Summary: Goo goo goo goo
