So exciting! We have a new Cadbury egg this year! Although, to be fair I do recall another chocolate cream Cadbury egg a few years ago. I’m thinking like in 2004, 2005, or 2006. So in candy terms, a looooooonnng time ago! Still, it’s exciting to see a new addition to the Cadbury line. As soon as I saw these Chocolate Creme eggs, I immediately swiped one up and knew it had to be one of the first candies I needed to review for Easter.
These Cadbury egg has a very low profile wrapper. It’s mostly a deep brown color with only a splash of yellow where the logo is. They’re the same size as the normal Cadbury cream eggs, so there isn’t much difference to report there.
The smell less sweet than the normal and caramel Cadbury cream eggs. There’s something muted about this one’s aroma. Unwrapping the egg you can see the familiar design of the chocolate eggs shell. Three rings around the outside and they “star” in the center. If this was left on the table unwrapped with other normal Cadbury eggs, I don’t think there would be a way to tell the difference.
My first bite in and the flavors are already very familiar. The chocolate shell is that standard Cadbury chocolate with the sharp tangy taste of dry milk powder and notes of caramel. The chocolate creme interior is dark in color, darker than the milk chocolate shell. It’s thick and shiny and looks a lot like frosting, except it’s much more soft. The flavor of it by itself is rather unimpressive. It’s very sweet, with only a slight cocoa flavor. I’m sorry to say that most of the chocolate flavor you taste in this egg is coming from the shell, not the filling.
So these were a disappointment to me. I was expecting a “bigger” chocolate flavor, but as I say that I wonder if anyone could handle such a thing. Since Cadbury creme eggs are known to be so sweet and overpowering on their own. Still, I was hoping the creme interior would have a little more of a say for itself, and instead it was relatively forgettable. I’d rather have Cadbury bring back the Orange Creme Egg. I liked that variant much more.
