Cadbury's Mini Eggs
Advantages: Very tasty
Disadvantages: Can make you egg shaped if you eat too many
As the Easter period draws to a close for another year, I thought it would be fitting to write a review on the chocolatey wonder that is the Cadbury's Mini Egg. Or eggs (plural), in my case it's a nice 120g tube.
Like Cadbury's creme eggs, the mini eggs make their appearance in shops early in the new year, in the run up to Easter. Once Easter is over, you can pick up some reduced price bargains, but soon the eggs will disappear off the shelves until next year.
This will vary, depending on what receptacle of mini eggs you are looking for. Mini Eggs are available in 39g, 120g, 200g, and 943g. I have also seen a 2.5kg box for sale online, which approx houses 500 eggs. Mmmmm.
I have a 120g tube sitting in front of me and it is bright yellow, with the purple and white Cadbury logo at the top. However, the smaller bag of mini eggs looks just like the picture above.
Whatever kind of packet you have, you will find all the nutrition facts, ingredients, written on it.
Mini eggs are small eggs of solid Cadbury's milk chocolate, covered in a sugar shell. The shell isn't very thick, (leaving lots of tasty chocolate underneath), and comes in a variety of colours, such as pink, white, yellow, brown and purple, with a speckled effect.
I will warn you that these eggs can be quite addictive, for example when I started writing this review I had a full tube of mini eggs in front of me. It's now almost empty - I just can't help myself!
~Nutrition Facts and Ingredients~
Each egg contains:
2.0g carbohydrate (of which 2.0g sugars)
0.6g fat (of which 0.4g is saturates)
0.0g fibre, sodium, or salt equivalent.
Ingredients: Milk Chocolate (sugar, milk ingredients, cocoa butter, unsweetened chocolate, soy lecithin, natural and artificial flavour), sugar, gum arabic, artificial flavour, colour (with tartrazine).
There is also a warning that the product might contain traces of nut, egg and soya.
Ok, so not the healthiest thing you could shove down your throat, but fortunately they aren't available all year round (wait, did I just say 'fortunately they aren't available all year round'? What is wrong with me?!) Look, they taste great - what's life without a little pleasure?
Mini Eggs are made by Cadbury Trebor Bassett, and are suitable for vegetarians.
They are available in supermarkets, newsagents and the like leading up to Easter.
I love them.
Summary: Solid milk chocolate eggs in a crisp sugar shell - yumm.
