Cadbury Crunchie Easter Egg 187g
This may be a bit early to review an Easter egg and unusually reviewed but it is my first chocolate review so bear with me and I hope you have a cracking read!! Easter is here next week and according to the retail food shops it has been here since December 26th when all Christmas stock disappears and is replaced by millions of Easter eggs of all shapes, sizes, and varieties. I have cheated and ate this egg before Easter is really here but amazingly cheapness of Easter eggs this year make it so easy to buy and replace especially if you are a chocoholic!! Now I love chocolate especially Cadburys and I also adore Cadbury Crunchies so putting the two together was a wonderful idea. There is something about Cadburys chocolate that makes it more superior to any other on the market (although I am partial to a galaxy bar)
**Outside the box **
Well for the Cadbury Crunchie 187g box it comes in a rectangular orange box with an oval shape to display the chocolate egg that awaits you inside the box. It also tells you the key information on the side-see below. An added bonus on is on the back you get 5 extreme facts and wished a happy Easter! You are also invited to join the Easter egg trial at www.eastereggtrail.com, where you can find out about your nearest hunt and when it takes place. Apparently they are working with the national Trust and Scottish National Trust on this to show that Cadbury is helping countryside sites for the future. So buy buying it I guess we are doing out little bit too! Also you can recycle the box so again showing that we and Cadburys can be environmentally friendly too!
**Inside the Box**
You get an Easter egg carefully packaged in plastic so it doesn't smash! It is also wrapped in the traditional Cadbury purple foil and you get 4 mini Crunchie bars. This has changed as they used to be two normal crunchies but you still get the same amount of Crunchie. However I am sure the eggs are getting smaller over the years.
**My opinion on the taste of the Egg Shell and Crunchies**
The milk chocolate egg when intact comes in two halves. This does make it easier to eat and break into compared to one whole hollow egg which I can never open without smashing into a thousand pieces. The chocolate has all the hallmarks of Cadbury's chocolate. The egg shell is of the same standard as Cadburys dairy milk bar and tastes delicious melting on the tongue. A down side is it is moresih to devour quickly but you can't eat both shells in one go as you would feel sickly. It is best kept in the fridge too as this helps it taste even better.
The crunchies come in 4 snack size bars which are of a nice treat size and better than the two traditional whole bars. The Cadbury Crunchie is a milk chocolate with a golden honey combed centre. Anyone who loves traditional cinder toffee will adore these. I am addicted to Cadbury Crunchie bars and again find them better if you keep them in the fridge. The Crunchie bar is coated in chocolate and I prefer to bite of the chocolate coating to leave the honeycomb centre to eat second.
**The bad News One calorific feast**
This is only the medium version and the egg and crunchies combined collectively they round up to near enough 1000 kcals!!! The Cadbury egg shell contains 315 kcals per half of the shell which is a lot of calories when you multiply by two. To be honest and I wish I read that key information guide before I devoured half an egg yesterday!! But the good news is now that the crunchies are mini sized and luckily there are only 80kcals in each bar. A big tip from me is not to try not to eat all 4 at once or that is 320kcals gobbled up.
**The Cost ££**
Well Cadburys Eggs are available in lots of shops from the local corner shop to the big supermarkets. With the sad demise of Woolworths Easter eggs are very cheap this year as supply outstrips demand and the eggs meant for Woolworths found deserving homes in other supermarkets and shops. Most shops offer 3for2 or 2for1 or half price deals. The eggs come in all sizes form small, medium to large to super duper sized. The egg I have bought ate and reviewed was of medium size. The medium egg at its cheapest costs £1 at the moment at Asda and Tesco but prices may vary on where you shop and promotion deals.
This is a cracking egg and Crunchie chocolate set. I adore Cadburys chocolate and was not let down by this Easter egg offering. The only downside is the shock of realising the calorific intake. Happy Easter all!
