Cadbury Creme Eggs

Updated on February 15, 2015

Creme Eggs: the most famous Easter Candy

Everyone has happy memories of eating Cadbury Cream Eggs every Easter time since they were a kid. Cadbury Creme Eggs are the perfect combination of sweet, gooey filling on the inside and delicious Cadbury milk chocolate on the outside. They are small enough to eat in a single serving, but are big enough that you can satisfy your sweet tooth.

Over the years, Cadbury has come up with many different flavors, which are all equally delicious, making it hard to choose just one. Do you go classic style or mix it up with some of the newer creations out there? My personal favorite is the Caramel Cream Egg. Rich, delicious and sticky caramel is the perfect pairing with the milk chocolate on the outside. I've been known to eat at least one of these a day in the week or two leading up to Easter.

But yourself a box of Delicious Cadbury Creme Eggs this Easter and share with your friends and family. Teachers, why not share some with your students on the day before the big Easter holiday? They'll love you for it because everyone appreciates this delicious treat!

1971 : Introduction of Cadbury Creme Egg

1975 : First Cadbury Creme Egg TV advertising - which fueled the huge popularity of the Cream Egg.

1985 : The famous 'How do you eat yours' advertising campaign is launched

Today : Over 300 million eggs are produced each year.

How are Cadbury Cream Eggs made? The secret is revealed!

The question that everyone wants to know!

First, liquid chocolate is poured into a 1/2 egg shaped mould. Then it's filled with white fondant and a dab of yellow fondant for the yolk. The fondant is denser than the chocolate, so it doesn't mix but instead pushes the chocolate outwards. Then, 2 mould halves are pushed together quickly, cooled and allowed to set. The moulds are removed and then the eggs go further down the line for packaging.

How do people eat their Cream Eggs?

53% of people bite off the top, lick out the 'creme' then eat the chocolate

20% just bite straight through

16% use their finger to scoop out the 'creme'

I'm firmly in category one. I always take a small bite off the top, and kind of suck the cream out. Then, I finish eating the rest of the chocolate.

Another Easter favorite from Cadbury, these are crunchy, chocolatey goodness which are irresistible. I've been known to shop the stores the day after Easter picking these up on sale so I can have another month or two of delicious chocolate crunch.

How many calories are in a Cadbury Creme Egg?

It's not so bad: 150 calories and 5 grams of fat. That's about 1/2 of the average Snicker Bar. So indulge yourself this Easter. Just don't eat two!

      These are too sweet. It would be better if they made the filling more neautral with just a touch of sugar.

      I love the Mini Cadbury Chocolate Eggs. So classy in a clear glass bowl. I agree with other visitors, the Cadbury Creme Eggs are too sweet and one a year is enough.

      I love the ones with orange filling. I must admit that I love this time of year when the eggs are all fresh and gooey! Angel blessings!

      I like the traditional one. I remember one time asking for ONLY creme eggs for Easter. My parents always did a hide and seek clue search; the final prize awaited me in the fridge: an entire basket of creme eggs! That was fun!

      I absolutely loved the orange eggs! Unfortunately, I haven't seen them in the last two years and they aren't for sale on Amazon. I'm hoping they haven't disappeared for good!

      If I have the money I like to buy Cadbury Cream Eggs up during the Easter holiday so I can have them all year round.

      I love Cadbury eggs. My birthday is around Easter, so growing up my brother would often give me half a dozen (in an egg carton, of course) as a gift. We don't have the orange ones in Canada and I would love to try them!

      I like 'em all, actually. Of course, I have to put them in a drawer every Easter because if I have to look at them, you know I'm going to eat them.

      I love the Mini Cadbury Eggs and the Caramel Cadbury Eggs. I actually bought a bag of Mini's today. I have a feeling it's going to be a great, fattening Easter!
