Cadbury's Mini Creme Eggs
Disadvantages: Less fondant Quota
I am a HUGE chocaholic. One of the highlights of my year is Easter and I always look forward to the 'Creme Egg Season'- that is December to April for those of you who do not follow the chocolate calendar. I was really excited when the small creme eggs came out a few years ago- but was soon disappointed for a few reasons. Firstly, the price. For approx 7-8 of these small eggs in individual wrappers, you will pay in excess of £1.29. for 4-5 of these small eggs that come naked (without their individual foil jackets) you will pay 69-79p.
Unless you rarely eat chocolate and are quickly satiated with the smallest bit of chocolate, then you will eat 69p- £1.29's worth of treats within about 3 minutes if you have anything of a sweet tooth. I do not understand why Cadbury's have brought out two different packs of these- one with individual wrappers and one without as the price for either isn't that different for what you get. The packs are small and I always feel a little out of pocket. In the bags without the individual wrappers, the eggs can get sticky inside the pack too so this isn't the most appetising thing to eat (for example at work if you type).
The eggs themselves are just small creme eggs. Approx 1.5 x 1 inches. When you bite into them, I find they are 75% chocolate with normally not a great deal of fondant and a large air bubble. The fondant often dries out a little so it is not runny as you get in a standard sized creme egg. As I am a fan of the fondant in the normal creme eggs, and how this is the majority of the product, I dislike the smaller eggs on the fondant front. But, if you are not a fan of all the fondant in a standard creme egg, and prefer the milk chocolate element, then the mini creme eggs will be more up your street.
If you are a fan, I would recommend keeping your eyes open for any multibuy deals that newsagents or supermarkets have (ie two of the larger bags for £2 etc).
As you should all be familiar with the ingredients of chocolate and the calorific value (around 540 calories per 100g as standard for milk chocolate) I will not list all the ingredients here. I will instead keep this review compact like the product.
Summary: Smaller is not necessarily better
