I had seen these before, but I always thought that at full price these eggs were slightly expensive. However, when I saw them on offer in Tesco at a price of £1.75 for four eggs, I decided to try them. I chose the milky mousse filling, although these are also available with a chocolate mousse filling. I love the quirky packaging on these eggs. They are packaged in a purple cardboard box, which is designed to resemble an egg box. There is a cardboard wrapper that you just slide off to access the eggs, which has all the important nutritional information and that on it. Being honest, I was in a hurry to get to the eggs, so I just ripped it off and opened the cardboard egg box to gain access to my egg. Inside the egg box, there are four eggs, each in a brown wrapper with a silver bar across the top, and the Cadbury's logo also in silver. In the middle of the box are two small plastic spoons, which you can use to scoop out the insides of the eggs. Why there is only two spoons, but four eggs does confuse me slightly, unless they expect customers to all be greedy and want two eggs each? The eggs themselves are the same size as a Creme egg, and when you unwrap the egg, you find an egg, with what looks liked a jagged indent around the top. Biting into this indent gives you access to the soft, whipped milky centre of the egg. You can then use your spoon to scoop out the insides of the egg, before eating the shell. I was surprised at how thin the chocolate was on these eggs, but I think that is because I was comparing them to Creme eggs. The milky centre was very light and it was tasty. It reminded me slightly of the milky inside to Kinder chocolate which had been whipped to give it a light, creamy texture. Once I had scooped out the mousse, I was left with the rest of the shell to munch on, with the rich, creamy chocolate that Cadbury's does best. I don't think I would buy these again. They are nice, but I don't think they are worth the money. It would make a nice Easter gift for someone, but if you are buying them for yourself, you can buy a few crème eggs for the same price, which are also nicer in my opinion. I loved the quirky packaging, but I didn't think these were anything special taste wise, and I don't want to pay a premium for cute and quirky packaging with mini spoons. These are available from most supermarkets and prices range from £2 in Asda to £3.50 from Waitrose (prices correct at time of writing review). Each egg contains the following: Calories 195 (10.8% of your guideline daily amount) Sugars 16.5g (19.4% of your guideline daily amount) Fat 13.0g (18.6%, of your guideline daily amount) Saturates (6.6g 33% of your guideline daily amount) Salt 0.09g (2.3% of your guideline daily amount) so while they are not the healthiest snack, they are okay as an occasional treat.
Every year they get earlier and earlier with bringing out Easter chocolates! The egg and spoon chocolates have been out for several weeks now so I have already ate a few of them. My partner brought a box home from Iceland's for us to try. I wasn't impressed when he said they were £2 and that was at half price. The box is bright purple so is very eye catching and opens and closes just like an egg box. You get 4 eggs inside either in chocolate or vanilla and two spoons. We tried the vanilla ones first as I thought all chocolate might be boring. You open the wrapper around the egg, bite of the top and eat the vanilla filling with the spoon then eat the outside chocolate. The egg itself is full to the top with vanilla mousse not just a little bit which you expect these days from chocolates. I must admit as much as I love chocolate the vanilla ones are quite sickly and I couldn't eat more than one at a time. I did say at first I wasn't happy about the price however when on offer they worked out at 50p each which is less than I pay for a creme egg. Full price the are £4 which I wouldn't be willing to pay as I don't think because of the size of the eggs they are worth £1 each. I have only purchased them when they are on offer. The eggs are a really fun and creative idea and brings out the inner child in all those grown ups. They are great for kids too! I haven't read how many calories are in them although I know they won't be good for you. This information is on the box if you do want to know before you eat them. Overall I am only giving 4 stars because at full price they are too expensive even as a one off treat.
Cadbury Egg and Spoon Price 2 for £5.00 at Tesco at the moment or I've just seen they are £2.00 each at Asda I got the rubbish deal. I love Easter it's one of the only times (apart from Christmas) that I can ditch any diet and eat chocolate with no guilt... My excuse at the moment is I'm preparing myself for Easter. When I saw these on offer in Tesco I couldn't resist I only went in for milk! When I get home I didn't quite know where to store them do you out them in the fridge which is where I would put any mousses or in the cupboard and cadburys being so smart have actually written on the sleeve do not refrigerate. So that answered that problem. Two Flavours Because they were on offer I decided to buy both favourites the chocolate and the vanilla. Both have cadburys chocolate on the outer side and a delicious mousse in the inside either vanilla or chocolate. The vanilla one is my favourite I think I Love the rich vanilla flavouring which goes very well with the chocolate outer taste. The chocolate one is also very nice but you can buy chocolate mousses so they weren't as exciting as the vanilla ones. I can't eat them all in one sitting which I would probably like to do as they are quite sickly and after one I've had enough despite the delicious taste. These eggs come in a purple egg box and consist of four eggs and 2 spoons which means naturally you have to eat two.. To eat you bite off the top of the egg and then with the spoon you can eat the yummy mousse finishing off by eating the outer chocolate.

I'm a little bit of a chocoholic and I just leave these eggs I wish it was Easter all year round. I think the price is a little too high but I don't mind paying it as Easter is only once a year. I think right now everyone who reads this should go out and experience these delicious eggs!
It's that time of year again when all the shops get flooded with Easter treats. From last year there was one particular treat that comes to mind - that is Cadburys egg "n" spoon. With it being produced by Cadburys you know exactly what you are going to get in terms of quality, a great tasting chocolate product. The eggs come in eye catching packaging - a purple egg box with a striking design. It's quite quirky with the egg box containing four eggs along with two spoons. The egg itself is a good size and you tap the top like a boiled egg to removed the top, once opened it contains a rich tasting chocolate delight. The only downsize is the price, the normal RRP price is £3.99 which in my opinion is expensive, saying that most supermarkets have these on offer, I recently brought them for £1.99 in Asda making them around 50p per egg. In summary the eggs are well worth a try for these chocoholics out there.
So ever since they came out last year, I've been dying to try a Cadbury Egg and Spoon. I don't know whether it was because they came in quirky little purple egg boxes, or the fact that they included a spoon for scooping out the goodness - either way, I wanted one! So imagine my delight when I opened the fridge this evening, to see that unmistakably Cadbury colour peeking out from behind a box of fish cakes! What is it? Cadbury Egg and Spoon is exactly what it says on the err... Box. It's four individually wrapped, chocolate eggs, sitting pretty in a purple egg box. The idea is you unwrap the egg, bite off the top, and scoop out the light and yummy mousse with the plastic spoon provided. You find them in the chiller aisle in most supermarkets, and they usually retail at about £3.50, although at the moment, Tesco has them on offer at just under £2! You can buy Double Chocolate, or Vanilla flavour - I tried the Double Chocolate. What are they like? If you like Cadbury chocolate, then you can't go wrong really - most of what they produce is excellent enough. But unfortunately, I'm not overwhelmed. The first thing that set the disappointment ball rolling was the fact that, as my title suggests, there are four eggs, but only two spoons. For myself and my boyfriend, this isn't too bad, but what about if you have four children, or even three, and they all want one? What do you do, make them wait for you to wash the spoons after their siblings have had theirs, and then let the others eat? And at £3.50 full price, why should I have to wash them so I can eat the other? I don't really understand the logic. Unwrapping my egg revealed the next oddity that lessened my smile. The egg has a funny shape to it - the bottom of it is perfectly egg-like, which is great, but the top looks like... Well, like someone has dipped a toasted soldier in it, snapped it off and left it to look a bit odd. Either way, I don't like it - why not just keep a simple egg shape? The third disappointment was the mousse inside. Light, yes, and tasty too, but the word that jumps to mind is "bitty". It isn't smooth, and I can't really explain why. It's not off putting, but it's not really "mousse" texture. But there is a fair bit of it, and it is easy to scoop out, so there are some positives. The last part of the egg was lovely - not too thick to be unable to nibble through it, but not so thin and airy fairy that you wish there were more. The overall taste is great too, but then, it is Cadbury, so go figure. What's in them?

ALLERGEN INFORMATION CONTAINS: MILK, SOYA. MAY CONTAIN: NUTS, EGG, WHEAT. SPOONS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 3 YEARS. What is the overall verdict? Overall, I'm not so excited any more, the advert no longer makes me go "ooo, I want one!" and I won't be rushing out to buy more. It's great to have tried these Easter delights, and to catch them on offer is brilliant, but I don't think they are worth £3.50, due to the thinness of the chocolate (granted, that's so you can eat it easily, but it's slightly disappointing) , the lack of enough spoons, and the bitty mousse filling. However, as a quirky treat for Easter (the time of overindulging in everything egg shaped) then maybe it is worth splashing out once, just to say you've tried it. I don't think I would rave and recommend to everyone I see, but put it this way - if you offered me one, I wouldn't turn it down! It's a 3 out of 5 from this chocolate lover. Hit and miss, Cadbury!
I remember when I first saw these in my local Superdrug back in February, "new" it said on the box and me being a fan of chocolate picked them up. I posted a picture of them on Facebook and my friends when crazy on them asking where I got them from then trying to locate them. I really enjoyed these Price/Availability These are part of the Easter range so don't expect to see these out all the time. I brought mins early February and they were still on the shelves in April, I suppose it similar to the crème egg which is only of for about 4 months. I brought mine in Superdrug priced £2 but I did see them is Asda and Tesco for around £2-£2.50 or on offer 2 for £3. It sounds a lot but you do get 4 eggs in a box, as a novelty they are quite cute. Packaging In line with Cadburys purple theme these are in a purple egg box with a cardboard wrapper around it. The cardboard is mainly purple as well but it clearly gives the information needed and all nutritional information. I think these do stand out, its not every day you see a purple egg box among the chocolates! Taste Upon opening you are greeted with 4 lovely little eggs all neatly wrapped in purple foil. There is even "instructions" on how to eat it! The box had 2 little purple spoons with it for you to scoop out the filling. I unwrap one egg, the egg itself its roughly the same size as a normal crème egg if not slightly smaller. The egg has a zig zag type of indentation around it about half way from the top, the idea is you break this piece off and scoop of the filling inside, I duly bite off the top which comes off easily and begin scooping out the inside. The chocolate case itself is lovely and rich, the usual Cadbury taste. The filling is truffle like, I've tried both vanilla and chocolate filling and loved them both, my favourite is probably the chocolate although the vanilla is just as good and as a person is nor normally keen on vanilla things it still enjoyable to eat. Once I finish the filling I eat the remaining case, in one! Now I am massive chocolate fan and on a pig out day I did eat 3 of these all in one go but I would say most people can have 1 or even 3 and feel satisfied, I never did 4 because I probably would have been sick but normally I would stick to 1 or 2 per time. The egg as a whole is lovely, these are different to crème eggs, the filling is not as sweet or heavy like a crème egg filling and I am a fan of them also but these do feel more lighter and less sickly. Overall A great novelty to have, I had quite a few of these in the run up to Easter and will most definitely buy when they appear again next year. For the price of £2 its 50p per egg so its about the same as a crème egg (excluding offers) but a different type of egg completely! worth a try if you see them, kids will enjoy them for the novelty factor but adults can aswell.

Spoons are provided in the egg carton to scoop out the mousse.

ALLERGEN INFORMATION CONTAINS: MILK, SOYA. MAY CONTAIN: NUTS, EGG, WHEAT. SPOONS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 3 YEARS. Avaliable at most good supermarkets but at the moment at very varied prices. Iv seen them for £3.99 in some place and actually 2 for £2 in some, so my advice is shop aroud first- dont just buy the first ones you see! MY EXPERIENCE _____________ I first saw these Eggs posted on friends Facebook profile saying 'look what Iv found in shops now' and my instinct reation was ' Oh my god I want them NOW!'. I guess you could say I like chocolate, same as anyone but Cadburys... I love! So I went on a hunt for these eggs, Down to my local tesco and yes they had them. They are in the choclate isle but the packaging is great, they look like a carton of eggs :) and in typical cadbury Purple colour card. Next was a big decision, vanilla or chocolate??? These are the 2 flavours they come in. For me it was double chocolate (though I will be returning for the vanilla ones soon) When I got them home I couldnt wait to open them, so I broke off the cardboard paper instructions and opened my egg box. Inside was four foiled wrapped eggs and 2 tiny little plastic spoons. It all looked so cute. Eating them- The instructions are easy.... Bite the top off the egg..... use the spoon to scoop out the sweet chocolate mouse and then eat the outer shell. So here we go, a loud crunch from the first bite and your in.... beautiful smooth chocolate, then for the mouse, It is very light and fluffy and the consistency is soft and almost bubbley, and tastes very rich and lovely. Then the shell is the great cadbury quality chocolate, Its smooth and sexy and now its...... GONE! MY OPIION __________ HAVE THEM NOW!!! BUY THEM TODAY!!! Obviously they are for people that like chocolate, So if you dont then dont buy them but if you do, everythig is right about these eggs. I love the novelty of them and think the packaging is truly great, the spoons are genious and whoever came up with the idea is amazing. It really appeals to everyone, but I think its especially nice for kids, though I can imagie it will get a bit messy if the chocolate starts to melt whilst they are holding the egg!! 5/5 And I will be returing to buy these and the vanilla ones :) Only downside is I think they might only be out for easter so grab them quick!!!! Thanks for reading and rating. Also on Ciao under the same username. AmyBoo
As you can see these come in four, all the more for me..... They come in an egg box shaped box in purple with a sleeve over this which is decorated with chocolate eggs with their tops taken off, a descriptive writing telling you this is indeed Cadbury's egg n spoon.This is a new item of deliciousness offered up by Cadbury's they are basically a chocolate egg filled with either double chocolate mousse or vanilla mousse. Did I mention these come in four's. Taste is out of this world, creamy mousse which is delicious not too over sweet, in fact just right in my view. The outer shell traditionally Cadbury's chocolate which blend together with the mousse beautifully. A taste sensation which I think is so much better that the old style creme egg. This is to me knocking spots off them with a big stick. Talking of sticks, you also get a dear little blue spoon to eat this with. What more could you possible want for a lovely bit of cadbury decadence. Prices vary depending where you buy your eggs from and I would suggest with this in mind you shop around as they can range from £2 ish to well over £5. The comparison sites vary tremendously and I really do not understand how this item can be priced so widely. So really do shop around for the best deal. Well worth the effort once you get your teeth into them so why not give them a try. My friend bought these for us all to share when we had one of our dining experiences and I was so glad that he did. They were very Moorish and we all will be buying them again as we were all in raptures with them.
