Ten Ways To Eat A Cadbury Creme Easter Egg

Do you know all the ways to eat a Cadbury Egg this Easter?

This morning I read a terrific hub about Cadbury eggs. As I was reading it, I had this horrible thought. What if there were people in the world that didn't know that there were different ways to eat Cadbury Creme Eggs?

I know there were advertisements set forth by the company to encourage people to get creative...but what if someone happened to miss them? I decided I couldn't go to bed with that on my conscience.

If you are a fan of the delicious creme filled treats that Cadbury candy company offers at Easter, then you probably have your favorite way of eating them. But the joy of devouring these chocolate delights is enhanced when you experiment with different methods of consumption.

Read on to learn the ten best ways to eat a Cadbury Creme Egg:

#1 Whole Hog

This method is the most popular option for when the first eggs appear in the candy section after a year's hiatus. You buy the first Cadbury egg of the season.

Then you unwrap it and stuff the whole thing in your mouth as soon as you are out of the store. This is also the best way of eating someone else's Cadbury egg...before they have a chance to catch you.

If you are afraid that your mouth size will not accommodate the standard Cadbury egg, don't worry! There are miniature versions of this treat too.

#2. Soft Boiled

For the delicate eater, who prefers a sophisticated approach.

  1. Place your unwrapped egg on an egg cup, (or if you aren't terribly sophisticated you can use a bottle cap or a candle holder).
  2. Tap a hole gently into to the top of your Cadbury egg, trying to avoid dropping any "shell" into the creamy insides.
  3. Now, insert a large straw and sip your fill of filling.

You can also slice off the entire egg top and use a spoon. After wards, enjoy eating the chocolate shell.

#3.Tropical Island Style

This approach is much like "Soft Boiled Egg". You need to puncture the egg with some rustic survival tool, such as a bamboo skewer.

Now you can tip the egg up and allow the creme to slide into your mouth. You may even suck it out if no one is watching.

If the egg is well sealed, you may need to make two holes, much like a vampire bite, to release the vacuum that is holding the filling hostage. The second hole is a good place to insert a small paper umbrella for that true "tropical vacation"feel.

#6. The Right Way

Whereas there isn't an "official" right way to eat your egg, the experts at Cadbury have done countless hours of research to see what method is the most commonly used.

53% of all Cadbury Egg lovers eat their eggs the same way, by biting off half of the egg and licking the cream out of the shell. If you are worried about being a non-conformist, then this is the way for you.

If you have already been eating your eggs another way, don't panic. It isn't too late to rehabilitate yourself. After practicing this technique for a few days (or eggs) you will be able to eat your eggs the right way like a natural.

#5. Cadbury Eggsicle

Experience the ultimate treat by popping your chocolate eggs in the freezer for a few hours before you eat them. Place them on a Popsicle stick first if you want to find out how many licks it takes to get to the center. Or, if you want to get right to the good stuff first, cut your eggs in half before you freeze them.

#4. On The Half Shell

Here you must either have a very large mouth, or the patience to slice the egg carefully. If you look closely at your unwrapped egg, you will see that it has a natural seam line, much like an equator traveling around it.

If you carefully bite or slice through the egg on this line, you will be rewarded with one half of the eggshell filled with creamy fondant. The other half will be an empty shell. Break the whole side into pieces and use it to dip the filling from the other side.

Maximize on this experience by preparing several eggs at once, so that you can enjoy uninterrupted pleasure once you begin dipping.

#8. Three Bite Delight

If you aren't up to trying the Whole Hog method of eating a Cadbury Egg, or if you are in polite company, try this:

  1. Unwrap your egg in sections.
  2. Take three equal bites as you unwrap.

This will prolong the satisfaction, as you can almost imagine that you are eating three eggs rather than only one.

#7. In The Dark

Believe it or not, there are people in the world who are repelled by the sight or thought of Cadbury egg filling. This could be one of those issues that Freud addressed.

Or it could be that that the filling looks too much like a real raw egg.Maybe there are people out there that don't like raw egg and with chocolate...which is sad, because without raw eggs, there would be no such thing as chocolate cake.

Anyhow, for those that are slightly repulsed by the thought of gulping down a slimy, sweet replica of egg innards, the solution is as simple as turning off the lights before eating.

Without proper illumination, the other senses will be heightened. As soon as the nose tunes into that scent of chocolate, all thoughts of revulsion will be magically dispelled.


#9. Messy Eggs

Still like playing pretend games? This is a fun way to eat Cadbury eggs with children, and adults who don't mind sticky hands. "Crack" your egg on the side of a bowl and let the filling fall into the dish. Just like cracking a "real" egg.

This works better if the egg is room temperature. You can commence to eat the broken shell and contents in any fashion that strikes your fancy. Use your spoon, your fingers, or lap it up like a kitten.

#10. Eggs In A Basket

Also know as Cadbury Egg hoarding, this method of eating these Easter treats is very serious and indicates an underlying mental illness. People who eat Cadbury's this way often buy them in bulk during the Easter season, then hide them away in various places around the house.

Hardcore hoarders will even estimate the number of eggs they need to buy in order to support their habit throughout the year. To do this yourself, pretend you are a mother hen preparing a nest of Cadbury eggs. Purchase your eggs and hide them in

  • Baskets,
  • Buckets,
  • Cookie jars,
  • Dresser drawers,
  • Unused cabinets,
  • Vases,
  • Flower pots

And other assorted places where spouses are least likely to look.

Sneak out late at night, and eat your eggs quickly. Just remember to brush away the tell-tale smell of chocolate before returning to bed.

Happy Gooey Eating

Now that you have read these many new methods for eating your Cadbury eggs, you have no excuse for not rushing to the store and buying one or two. They are cheap, fun, delicious...and calorie free.

No! Really! Nowhere is it stamped in chocolate on a Cadbury egg that it is bad for you! Besides...eggs are protein. Right? So just tell your guilty conscience and your scales that you are making a healthy choice...and treat yourself to some gooey goodness while they are still available!

      This article is incorrect.

      There is nothing wrong with hoarding them as described in number 10. I have bought enough eggs for my wife and I to last until Christmas. We have not hidden them. There is nothing to be ashamed of.

      "The Right Way" is not the right way. It is almost correct, but licking the fondant out while there is still some chocolate remaining spoils the climax of the experience. The correct way is to nibble round and round the chocolate eating just enough of the fondant to prevent it falling off. Then the last couple of mouthfuls will be chocolate with a huge dollop of fondant on top.

      @SaffronBlossom--Wow! That sounds delicious. Too delicious maybe! No wonder they disappeared before they made it out of your kitchen! Thanks for reading and sharing that idea!

      @Sherry--that's the spirit! I didn't get any on clearance this year. They were the first thing that sold out. I am glad now I bought a couple before Easter and held on to them. Thanks for reading! :)

      I didn't get any Cadbury Cream Eggs until the day after Easter this year, then I bought a half dozen for half price so I could try a bunch of new ways to eat them.

      @Dana--Well, I would never have thought of eating a Cadbury egg in the tub! Original and logical! Easy cleanup! And what better way to relax than with chocolate and a hot bath! Thanks for the smile and the comment! I am glad you enjoyed your egg!

      Love Cadbury eggs and love this hub! This year I wrapped the mini cream eggs in chocolate chip cookie dough and then baked it...the cream and chocolate melted through the cookie and it was amazing. :) I made them to take to work, but mysteriously they never left my kitchen...

      IN THE TUB!!! oh yes! I did that today (a chocolate one). It was wonderful. I started at the narrow end and munched my way down slowly. I take very hot baths, so it did start to get melty :)

      @Billy--Thank you! :) I wouldn't have thought of it either if I hadn't read Victoria's hub. That got me thinking..."am I the only one who eats Cadbury eggs this way...?" and a very weird hub was born. Thanks for reading and commenting!

      @Rochelle Frank--That is why I love Hubpages. It gives me an outlet for all the peculiar things I think about too much! :)

      I agree...#1 is a great way to get the job done. And no body should have guilt when it comes to a once-a-year splurge. Thanks for the comment!

      @Sherry--I think the mess is party of the fun with Cadburys. And I usually hate eating any kind of messy food! You can always pretend you are buying them for someone else's kids...but then, you can taste-test a few. :)

      mary615--As far as I know, yes. They are only available at Easter. It is really hard to find the creme eggs here even at Easter. Tons of the caramel and Snickers eggs, but to me, they just aren't the same as a Cadbury creme egg!

Great job, full of wit, humor and 10 ways to eat them! LOL voted ++++, shared and pinned!

      You have given this way too much thought....

      ... though it was all delicious.

      They are all good, but number one was my favorite., unless you have self guilt-- no one will know.

      And for Sherry.. you never know when kids ( yours or other random kids) may appear. Have some on hand.

      Cadbury cream eggs are the best Easter candy ever, messy though, I can never eat one without getting all over me. All these creative ways of eating them reminds me of my kids. Now that I have no kids in the house I can't pretend I'm buying the eggs for them.

      Is it true you can only buy these at Easter time??? I love these eggs and I would just pig out on them.

      @Linda--I always buy two every year. I eat one right away, and put the other one in the refrigerator. Then I stare at it for several weeks wishing I had bought more so I wouldn't feel bad about eating it! Buy yourself an egg! They are so worth it! :)

      Oh how much i love Cadbury cream eggs. I have an order with my parents who send them to peru every year. The best way to eat them is puncture a hole on the side and lick the cream out, then you can enjoy breaking off the chocolate a little at a time, yum

      I haven't eaten a Cadbury egg in a few years, but when I did allow myself to enjoy this yummilicious treat I am the "three bite delight" type of eater. I just might have to get myself an egg real soon because this hub made me crave one!
