What is the Best Easter Candy? My Letter to Hershey's Cadbury Eggs!

Source

What is Your Favorite Easter Candy?

Without a doubt, my favorite Easter candy--or chocolate--is Cadbury. Cadbury eggs. I have heard people say that the white and yellow yolk-like substance on the inside grosses them out, but I love it. And the chocolate "shell" is divine. Those people don't know what they're talking about. Cadbury eggs are a little bit of Heaven coming down at Easter. I wait eagerly every year for these things. I used to stock up on them, stacking up multi-pack box after multi-pack box in my cabinets. As I’ve grown older, I refrain from doing that due to money and calories, but I haven’t lost my yearning for them.

In 1994, yes, nearly 18 years ago, I decided that enough is enough. Why do Cadbury egg lovers have to wait a whole year to get their fix on these eggs? So, I wrote a letter. I found an address on the Cadbury egg packaging, finding out that actually the Hershey Company makes Cadbury eggs. I didn’t know that, and it didn't stop me. I was ready to take on the empire of Hersheys themselves.

Yes, you can tell that I tore into this package.
Yes, you can tell that I tore into this package.

My Letter to the Hershey Company Regarding Cadbury Eggs

Confident in my mission to achieve Cadbury creations for everyone throughout the year, (well, truly to satisfy my own decadent cravings), I penned the following letter to the Hershey Company.

July 16, 1994

Dear Cadbury,

As an avid fan of Cadbury’s Crème Eggs, this letter’s purpose is, hopefully, to bring to your attention the burning question of all Cadbury egg fans: Why only once a year?

My best friend and I long for these delectable treats all year long and start counting down the months in January with eager anticipation. Nothing else gives us the fulfillment that do these creamy, chocolaty, perfect creations.

My question is: Can’t this delightful concoction be introduced at other times of the year? Think of it: Cadbury party hats, Cadbury hearts, Cadbury shamrocks, Cadbury firecrackers, Cadbury pumpkins, Cadbury turkeys, and Cadbury Santas, to name a few ideas. I think that Cadbury specials could be created for nearly every month of the year, with just a little thought.

Trust me when I say that Cadbury egg fans are die-hards. You would have a loyal following. Please, for the sake of Cadbury lovers, consider the possibilities.

Yours Truly,

Vicki

Where Cadbury Eggs are made!

Hershey's Response?

First, looking back, I must say that my going on about potential Cadbury delights was a precursor to Forrest Gump’s Bubba Gump’s shrimp monologue. Think they got the idea from my letter? Well, no, because my letter went nowhere! Well, not literally. It did get to the company.

Wouldn’t you think a lush, chocolate-loving company would respond to such a heartfelt letter? Wouldn’t you think that they would be stumbling all over each other to see who could hurry and come up with those Independence Day Cadbury flags? And Cadbury groundhogs for GroundHog Day? The possibilities are endless, really!

Well, they did respond, but not in the way I was hoping. At least they did send me a letter back. For that, I was pleased. At least my outcries weren’t totally ignored. I do have the letter tucked away somewhere where I can’t find it. The company probably wouldn’t want their response shared with the world, anyway . . . their shameful failure to embrace my suggestions.

Cadbury Egg Lovers Unite!

Oh, Hersheys wasn't ugly about it. The letter just said something about how they appreciated my suggestions, but that they have their own team of people who come up with ideas...yadda yadda. Yawn. Basically, it was their nice, vague way of saying that they didn’t care about my idea. My marvelous, life-changing, world-changing idea. They had their chance. And when I see Cadbury pumpkins and Cadbury shamrocks out on the shelves, I'll know where the idea came from. We have proof right here, folks!

So here I am again at Easter time. I had two Cadbury eggs today—one original and one chocolate crème. At least Hershey’s did branch out and add the chocolate and caramel versions. Oh, and the mini Cadbury eggs! These are great when I want only a little Cadbury treat. But there is so much more they could do. What about peanut butter filled Cadbury eggs?

And can we please, please, for the love of all things deliciously decadent, revisit Cadburys for all holidays, all seasons…? It’s the 21st century. Isn’t it time to branch out? Who is with me? Any Cadbury lovers out there? Maybe we can start a petition letter to Hershey’s to urge their reconsideration.

At the very least, maybe you could leave your opinion in my comment section, below. I’m off to have another Cadbury egg. A mini this time.

Nicely done. and Yum! I do love those eggs. I remember looking forward to them every Easter. I still like them, but as an adult trying to watch my weight, those huge bins of eggs in all of the stores are seriously hard to resist. Perhaps I will have just one. Good thing they sell them that way. :o)

I knew I shouldn't have come to read this hub. Now I have to go to the store and buy some Cadbury eggs. I'm surprised that Cadbury didn't send you some free samples after receiving a letter from you. I think that might have been a nice gesture on their part. Gotta run now and get me some eggs :)

I love Cadbury Eggs too! I also wondered why we can not get them all year! I think they have a very silly team of people who handle this - if I owned Cadbury eggs I would sell them all year to make a profit and not just make a tiny bit of money once a year! Goofy - now I hope this makes them get off those eggs! YUM! I want one now!

Samantha Sinclair 4 years ago from North Carolina

I think the response came from the legal department. If they said, "great idea" then came out with a similar product, they'd have to pay you or you could sue them.

Personally, I think the eggs being available only once a year makes them more desirable. I no longer need Peeps at this time of year because they are now made for holidays throughout the year. It's like, they've lost their magic.

Have you ever been to Chocolate World in Hershey, PA? I'm not sure if I've seen the eggs out of season, but I'm pretty sure Hershey does sell other Cadbury products there throughout the year...


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

rebeccamealey--Cadbury Egg ice cream??? Where???? No, I haven't heard of it. How heavenly!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

hahaha, Dana! glad we could break you down! I have some but wrote them on my list to get more before Easter!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

I don't know, Samantha. I know people who are only in the mood for Peeps around Easter. I don't like Peeps so much, so I don't know. I'm sure I would buy Cadbury's more than once a year. They would come out for every holiday--at least the major ones, right?!! No, I haven't been. I heard that Hershey moved to Mexico but then that maybe they moved back...?


Samantha Sinclair profile image

Samantha Sinclair 4 years ago from North Carolina

Nope, Hershey has always been in Hershey, PA. The whole town smells like chocolate, thanks to the factory. They have a theme park (Hershey Park) and chocolate factory tour with a super-sized chocolate store (Chocolate World) there, as well as hotels with chocolate-themed restaurants and a spa. Yes, that's right. You can get a chocolate facial.


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Samantha, that is so cool! I would love to visit the chocolate town of Hershey, PA! The tour, the park, the spa. Oh, sounds like Heaven!

Chocolate World is a lot of fun too. I was there this past fall and had a blast. There are some great products in the shops. I did not notice any Cadbury Eggs though. And the prices are outrageous, so bring plenty of cash! http://www.hersheys.com/chocolateworld/default.asp...

Moon Daisy profile image

Moon Daisy 4 years ago from London

I love these. I have two in my fridge. One is for my daughter and I'm trying hard not to eat them both!!

Most shops here (in the UK), don't stock them all year around, they tend to come out sometime before Easter and sell until there are no more left. But saying that, there are some shops that seem to have them available at other times of the year.

We have Cadbury's Creme Egg ice cream here. I haven't tried it yet as I'm not sure how well it would translate! But I probably will. Think it has to be done...

There is also a Twisted Bar, which is a chocolate bar version of the egg. That is available all year around.

Nice hub. It's making me want to raid the fridge though...

I don't celebrate Easter, but I must admit, Easter candy is the best of all year. And the best of the best is Cadbury Creme Egg! I love these soooooo much that if I am lucky enough to find them on sale after Easter, I'll buy as many as I can get my hands on -- dozens to last me as long as possible! When I was in grad school many years ago, my sister happened across the most amazing sale ever -- 5 cents apiece! She must have bought 100 or more, and she gave me so many that I filled up the egg holder in my fridge and then had to put the rest of the bag in the fruit drawer! Ahhhhh, that was a good year.


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

You should write to Kraft Foods and ask them to start producing Cadbury products directly in the US (Hershey does it under license).

If you're ever in the UK, the "Cadbury World" factory tour and shop in Bournville, Birmingham is a place to hit up!

Awesome and enjoyable hub! I too love Cadbury Creme eggs, and would eat them throughout the year. I propose that they make miniature ones (the size of those tiny chocolate footballs) for those days when we can't handle the full sugar shock of a whole egg. Besides...those little ones are a lot easier to hide in your purse! I personally would enjoy a creme groundhog or one of Santa! If you ever decide to get a petition started for year-round Cadbury delights, I will sign. Sharing and voting! :)

It is funny that they only come out once a year. I mean, think about it: Marshmallow Peeps are not only an Easter thing. They have different shapes and sizes, even flavors, for many different seasons. If they can branch out, Cadbury Eggs should branch out! They are awfully decadent, and it's a shame they can't at least come out 2 or 3 times per year.

I've always loved the Cadbury eggs, too. I try to buy some when the Easter candy is in the stores. They are a treat and are really good. They have other candy that is sold for each holiday, so I don't know why they wouldn't do this with the Cadbury egg, too. I suppose they connect the Cadbury (egg) with the holiday Easter and won't have it made for the other holidays. To bad they wouldn't change it to all year around. The Cadbury eggs sure are good, though. I love chocolate and the cream in the center of the egg. Nice hub and photos!

The Chewy Mommy 3 years ago

Cadbury Eggs are amazing, although I do prefer the big ones over the minis. My husband gets a big Easter basket full of them every year and I admit we do not always share them with the kiddos. I kind of like the fact the eggs are only available around Easter time though for a couple of reasons. First, I think something special would be lost if you could get them all of the time. The excitement that comes knowing they will be hitting store shelves would disappear and they just wouldn't be as much of a treat if they were a part of everyday life. My second reason for being glad Cadbury Eggs are not sold year round is I would weigh 500 pounds if they were ;-)


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 3 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Me, too, gail!!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 3 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

The Chewy Mommy--You are right about it being bad in some ways if they were available year round. I would have to buy them pretty often!! It is exciting every year, but I would like them at least a few more times per year. Perhaps just adding them during a few other holidays would be sufficient! :-)


gail641 profile image

gail641 3 years ago from Mason City

Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 3 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

gail, I tried peeps last year and wasn't too impressed. They're like marshmallows with sugar on them. I did like one I tried with a chocolate coating, however. Maybe different flavors would be okay; I think I have seen those. I might try them again. :-)


The Chewy Mommy 3 years ago

Adding them at Halloween would be pretty great! A Cadbury Cream Pumpkin perhaps?
