The first of the Halloween candies! It seems that each year finding new, original Halloween candy just gets harder and harder to come across. So far, this year candy hunt has felt a bit easier than past years. Yes, I did see many repeats from years past, and like old friends I am happy to see them again. I’m happy when a seasonal candy is successful. Which, leads me to today’s gem of a find, as I squealed out loud when I saw it in its display: The Cadbury Scream Egg!
It seems Cadbury has finally solved the issue of the CCE only being available at Easter. We now have a Halloween variety, with a very clever name to match! The wrapper sports a black, green and purple color scheme, and it feels very festive. The Cadbury Bunny was shown on the display wearing a wizard’s hat. I will certainly scream at the cuteness!
I unwrap the foil on the CSE, and it looks the same as the CCE. It has the same outer rings on the edges and the star etched into the middle. It smells the same as a CCE. It’s sweet with an intense dry milk dairy scent to it. So familiar and so awesome.
The flavor is just as I remember it. The chocolate is smooth and sweet with the same dairy notes to it as the aroma. It’s creamy with a slight yogurt tang. The nougat cream center is thick and very sweet. The “yolk” is green. Clever! The flavor of it is, sweet of course, with very slight flavors of vanilla and a hint of coconut in there. The texture is slightly grainy and yet so smooth. It’s just a good as the regular CCE from Easter.
So here you go CCE fans! Finally you can get your CCEs during another time of the year. As for myself, I am very happy about it. Now I wait 6 months instead of a year for my fix. I hope you all are as excited about this as I am, as it feels that if any other holiday would make room for a CCE, it would be Halloween.
