Cadbury's Mini Eggs
Advantages: lovely chocolate in a crunchy shell
Disadvantages: eat too many and they're a little sickly
Cadburys Mini Eggs are possibly one of the best chocolate creations going in my opinion and most people seem to love them. Mini eggs were introduced to us in 1967 and were initially just for sale at Easter and Christmas. The are more commonly sold around the Easter period, but thankfully you can find them at some retailers all year round. As stated on the bag, Mini eggs are solid milk chocolate in a crisp sugar shell, the packaging is bright yellow with little colourful eggs dotted all over the bag and "mini eggs" in big purple writing. Inside the packaging you will find the colourful eggs - white, yellow, brown, pink and purple and each egg has little brown speckles on which i think is to give the impression of being like a real egg.
In standard 100g bags there seem to be around 30 eggs although i think this will slightly probably vary from bag to bag. The taste of the eggs does vary depending on which colour you have, i have to say that my favourite are the yellow and white ones.
(of which sugars 16.6g)
(of which saturates 3.4g)
A warning on the packet states there may be traces of nuts and soya, so if you have allergies beware!!
The prices of the bags vary from shop to shop, you can get them for 79p in some shops, yet others sell the same size bag for £1.19 so best to shop around if you can!! In addition to the standard bags you can buy, there are also tubes of mini eggs, both tall and small tubes, and of course at Easter there are the mini eggs easter eggs with a huge one for a whopping £9.99!!!
Overall, I do really really love mini eggs, although after eating a few they can get really sickly.
Summary: Just delicious!
