The other breed of Cadbury’s Eggs; the egg filled with caramel.
Caramel, thick yet stringy; smooth yet sticky; like all things in life, the caramel inside of this milk chocolate coating is paradoxical. It is almost as stringy as the caramel inside of a Caramelo, but is much gloopier and thus leaves teeth prints when you bite into it.
For those of you who prefer the less intensely sweet taste, Cadbury’s Caramel Egg will probably be more satisfying than the original Crème filled egg. This caramel egg has only been around since 1994, well after the 1985 “How do you eat your Cadbury Egg” campaign began. The options with how to eat this egg can be explored in the same ways that you experimented with how to eat Cadbury’s Crème Egg for so many years.
You can go at it with a spoon, you can split it at the seam, you can bite from the top, fill the mouth, you can eat it with your eyes closed or crossed or you can share it bite for bite with someone you Love.
Easter feast just isn’t complete without a Cadbury Caramel Egg to cleanse the pallet for the Cadbury Crème Egg after the meal. The caramel and chocolate meld together as one magnificent, melty taste that will leave you lounging limp in your seat while your mind travels into the la la land of swirling tasty joy.

The Cadbury Mini Egg facebook page is filled with self-proclaimed addicts of this “solid milk chocolate with crisp sugar shell” novelty. Though I thought these eggs would be inadequate because of their solid nature, thus lacking the inner gloop that makes Cadbury’s Caramel Egg and Cadbury’s Crème Egg so fun, I was creating an unnecessary expectation.
Don’t let the lack of filling let you think that the mini eggs have less possibilities of variable eatability; creativity is always an option if you allow it to be.
You can suck on the mini egg until the sweet shell dissolves into the melty smooth milk chocolate, you can chew it up for a cruncharific chocolate experience, you can do your best to try and eat the shell off of the egg (though this is difficult to do cleanly without biting chunks out of the egg), and you can go for the mouthful of mini eggs for a mess of egg shell and milk chocolate mixing together like compost decomposing in the warmth of your mouth.
All of these are fun and none of them leave out any of the tastiness to be had by the miniature eggs; but don’t let me ruin the fun by telling you all the ways to eat these eggs, I bet you can think of a unique and personalized miniature egg eating style.
There may not be any goo to release in these mini eggs, but this product presents you with the opportunity to play the Easter bunny and give to the chocolate egg cravers in your community.

Well hello again candy blog readers! I have returned back to blogging in the United States after a wild and wonderful five months in Israel where I was living on a farm learning permaculture (sustainable living). But that story is not as enticing as the Cadbury Crème egg that you patiently anticipate all year. Well you don’t have to X off any more calendar days because the Cadbury crème egg has been laid on the storefront.
Thick milk chocolate surrounds the gloopy egg white crème. You can crack the egg straight down the middle and peel apart the thick fondant filling made from egg, thick white cream, sugars and other additives that holds a tad bit of orangeish yellow color that represents the yolk of this candy egg. This shot of sweetness can be devoured from the outside in or the inside out or just a big plopperoo for the mouthful of Creamy Cadbury nirvana.
In the UK, annual sales of Cadbury’s Crème egg between New Year’s Day and Easter exceed 200 million items! That’s a lot of gloopy fondant sugar crème, over 15 million pounds worth of Cadbury egg. The Cadbury Brothers manufactured the original eggs in 1923 and the current egg, first introduced in 1971, is manufactured at the Bournville factory in Birmingham at a rate of 1.5 million eggs each day! It’s a good thing they don’t have to depend on chocolate chickens to lay all those eggs.
Before being manufactured in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia used to house the operation and New Zealanders aren’t happy about the switch. The natives complain that filling of the eggs is thicker and less runny than it used to be when it was manufactured in their beautiful country. In the UK the eggs are a product of Kraft, but here in the United States, we thank Hershey’s for these Easter favorites.
As all candies are, these eggs are as sharable as you want to make them. I have allotted them a ‘2’ because of the “convenience” of the line that allows you to crack the egg directly down the center. They are also conveniently individually wrapped in pretty foil and have a high novelty item because of the limited time this holiday candy is available.
Enjoy, and sharing has never been a bad idea.

If you are one of those people that get a boosted ego from kids thinking you gave out the best candy on Halloween, then go out and buy a couple boxes of Caramellos. I don’t believe I’ve ever gotten a Caramello in my Halloween bag, but if I did I’m sure I was ecstatic.
This candy seems to have sort of flown under the radar and hasn’t quite made it to the popularity level of the Snickers, Reese’s, Kit Kat, Milky Way and those kinds of candies. But in quality, this Cadbury candy is at the same if not a higher level than those.
The Cadbury Caramello comes in four milk chocolate squares filled with a stringy almost liquid caramel. When you break one square off from the others, that string of caramel connects the two, and when you bite into one you usually can’t prevent a little caramel from sticking to your lips and chin.
I remember this as being my older brother, David’s, favorite candy and so naturally I wanted it to be my favorite candy too. That wasn’t too difficult to make happen. One bite into this milk chocolatey, creamy caramely piece of candy and I immediately fell in love.
And for those of you that pronounce caramel as carmel, here is proof that you are pronouncing it incorrectly. You don’t pronounce this candy as carmello, it is pronounced how it is spelled, carAmello.
Guess who’s back?
Cadbury Crème Eggs Are Back.
Tell your friends!
What’s better than milk chocolate bars? Fun shaped milk chocolates! Not only are they egg-shaped, the crème filling is also colored in white and yellow to imitate the likeness of the egg yolk. An even more interesting thing about Cadbury Crème Eggs is that according to the manufacturer, Cadbury Schweppes, they’re made all year round but only sold from New Year’s Day to Easter. For those of you who don’t know, last Wednesday (Ash Wednesday) officially signaled the countdown to the Easter Holiday. Now that Lent has officially begun, it’s less than 40 days until Easter Sunday.
Cadbury Crème Eggs were as much a part of my childhood Easter preparations as egg dying. As I dipped an egg into the red or green egg dye, and stuck stickers for decoration, a Cadbury Crème Egg and a Marshmallow Peep would be within arm’s reach. I only associate good times with the fun eggs.
Since the next time you’ll be able to buy these yummy treats after April 8, 2007 is January 1, 2008, I suggest you stock up. If you’re as big of a fan of these tasty chocolate eggs as I am, I suggest you prepare a healthy stash and enjoy them year round with your family, friends, or just yourself.
I knew there was a reason I loved March and April. It’s not the promise of spring, or the knowledge that my classes are almost over. It’s Cadbury Creme Eggs. I absolutely love them. During the months they are available everywhere I make sure to have at least two boxes in the house at all times.
Now there are a lot of different Cadbury eggs. They have caramel and chocolate filled. But I love the original creme. Milk chocolate on the outside, and the white and yellow sugary creme on the inside. I think if I had to pick only one kind of chocolate to eat for the rest of my life I would have to choose Cadbury creme eggs.
It’s only the first week of April and I’ve already gone through 4 boxes of creme eggs. So luckily I have about another month to stock up on the goods. I would highly suggest that all candy lovers stock up as well. It’s the best tasting chocolate treat ever!
Until next time, this is Kandy K…..stay sweet!!
