Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Creme Egg (ice lollies)/ Crunchie Blast ice cream Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Creme Egg (ice lollies)/ Crunchie Blast ice cream
Posted: 14:37 Tue 14-Mar-2006. Price: 1.00 for 3. Location: Iceland, Bedford; Iceland, Wrexham. Nutritional unusualness: 9.0g and 9.7g saturated fat per bar, respectively.
"Holy Bladder" reports: Following on from the Creme Egg Bar is this very tasty, if simple, Creme Egg-flavoured icecream bar on a stick. It's just flavoured ice cream, no sauce or anything in there, which was disappointing at first, but it actually does taste a lot like a Creme Egg, and the distinctive Cadbury's milk chocolate (mmm... taste the vegetable oil) completes the experience. If Creme Eggs just aren't frozen enough for you, and you can't be arsed to just freeze them... this could be for you. The only odd thing is the name - as you'll see from the photo, they are just called "Cadbury Creme Egg". No mention in the name that they're actually a lolly, although presumably people can tell from the picture - but the visually impaired could suffer a nasty frozen surprise...

...First-time spotter "Holy Bladder" submitted this just hours before "Daniel Thornton" - please View comments for the latter's verdict on the Creme Egg one, which "Daniel" saw in conjunction with the Crunchie Blast ice cream, deemed "far more pleasing, being simply a stick version of the already terrific Crunchie ice cream bars, but with popping candy. And there's not much more to say than that really."

Comment: Bizarrely turning up in the midst of the most wintery weather so far is possibly not evidence of great business sense, seeing as these are already on promotional pricing in Iceland. Still, eating an ice-cream lolly while walking in two inch deep snow and slush is one of those experiences you're not likely to get that often, so I guess I should be pleased or something. I certainly wasn't pleased about the Creme Egg lolly - it's got a disconcerting tumourous bulge where the "yolk" is, and tastes more like a glass of UHT milk than a Creme Egg; oddly, when the chocolate is peeled away it tastes much more like the original egg.

Comment: Bought a pack of these in Tesco Elephant & Castle a few weeks ago, reduced to clear at 10p a pack. Disappointing, though certainly worth 10p!

Comment: They are bogof in sainsburys at the mo so I got these and Cadbury orange chips ice cream bars. Creme egg one was just like a magnum - was supposed to be actual fondant in it but all there was is the tiniest drizzle so not even able to taste it.

Comment: Local shop on the great eastern road London EC2 a whopping £1.20 for one! Had a wee bit of caramelly textured stuff in the middle but not as good as a real creme egg.

Comment: By the looks of the grammar on some of these comments it would appear the yellow goo in the centre is affecting your brains! However in total agreement, these are not very nice at all... 77763 7
