Confirmed sighting: Cadbury's Chocolate Creme Egg
Posted: 09:18 Thu 10-04-2003. Price: 37p. Location: Levitt's, Sheffield. Nutritional unusualness: 2% of your cholesterol rda!.
"Charl" reports: I had seen these on the Hershey's website (link no longer there), but was surpised to find an unannounced box of them stashed in the corner of my local shop. The shell is the same as the trad version, but the filling is a slightly stodgier chocolate fudgy creme. They have made the decision to avoid a 'yolk' which would have been very chic in a lighter brown colour. Overall: interesting to completists, slightly less sweet than the original, not delicious or unique enough to warrant repeat visits. Although the wrapper does have cute little flowers on it. Yes, I know what you're thinking: surely this is just Cadbury's ill-fated "Velvet" egg (subsequently relaunched as "Mad About Chocolate")? Well, yes, it appears to be, albeit rebranded - again - for the US market, and then mysteriously re-imported back into the UK (which is also what happens with Altoids). And just to prove that it is a different product to Cadbury's Creme Egg Classic, Charl even went to the trouble of linking to this comprehensive nutritional analysis.

Comment: best thing about cadburys mad about chocolate eggs is the font on the wrapper.

Comment: When i was in England in 1994 I remember seeing 3 or 4 diferent kinds of cadbury eggs (was there just before easter) and finally about 2 years ago we get the chocoalte and the carmel egg her in the states. I don't like the original but these two are divine.

Comment: Back in the 70s or even 80s I remember Border Creme Eggs which were identical to these - they came in Tartan foil wrappers too! A quick flick through google says they were made by Frys...anyone else remember these?

Comment: I worked in a confectioners after school from 1976-1980 and the border cream egg was my fave. Cadbury/fry were the same company. The egg had the same chocolate shell/markings with the tartan wrapper. By the time I went on to college they had gone off the shelves.

Comment: Border Creme Eggs were the biz! Lovely runny chocolate 'sauce' in the middle, not fudgy/sugar-crystally like moderne chocolate-soft-centred eggs (which have always been a disappointment after the distant-memory-heaven of a Border Creme Egg!) 56924 4

Comment: Border Creme Eggs were fabulous - tartan foil wrapped, they were chocolate heaven - the runny chocolate filling was much nicer than the usual white and yellow paste filling - pleeease can we have them resurrected???

Comment: There used to be a Toffee Mallow egg doing the rounds which was great, also a mint egg (bit sickly but still worth the 25p-odd asking price).
