Creme Egg recipe changed - probably a Jihad plot

12 January 2015

Cadbury-Creme-Eggs As you may have found out, via those fantastically bright people at Fox News, Birmingham is a no-go area for people who aren't Muslims. You didn't hear about that? Click here to find out all about it. Just wait until Fox finds out that, nearby, they'll find the Black Country.

Seeing as Cadbury is Birmingham, the news that the company have secretly changed the recipe of Creme Eggs, you can only assume that this is a secret terror plot to fell Britain via dissatisfied palates by horrible eggstremists.

So what's going on? Well, the chocolate shell of a Creme Egg is now made with a standard cocoa mix rather than Dairy Milk. And you can tell. It is much sweeter than the old version, as if Creme Eggs weren't sweet enough already.

A spokesdrone for the company said: "We tested the new one with consumers. It was found to be the best one for Creme Egg, which is why we've used it this year. The Creme Egg had never been called Cadbury's Dairy Milk Creme Egg."

"We have never played on the fact that Dairy Milk was used."

Of course, Creme Eggs were actively good for you in the olden days, before the American company Kraft took over Cadbury's. Kraft also stopped boxes of Creme Eggs containing 6 treats (you know, like a proper box of eggs) and reduced the contents to 5, while keeping the price the same. Naturally, chocolate fans are exggsasperated at the whole thing.

Shell-shocked. Albumental, etc. Now, we're off for a Creme Egg omelette.

    Eh? I thought Cadburys only ever used Dairy Milk, in the same way Mars only use Galaxy for everything and Nestle used Yorkie chocolate in Smarties etc. Since when have Cadburys made two types of milk chocolate?

    @ Alexis Vallance - Bournville. Git.
  • Mr F.
    In fairness to Alexis Vallance, Bourneville is dark chocolate, not milk. So he might be right.

    Albumental? Is that an egg pun?
  • Ginger B.
    Cadburys used a different type of chocolate in the Flake - it needs to be a bit harder for the flake to well flake.

    You only need one Creme Egg to make an omelette, because it's un œuf.
