Cadbury's Just Dealt A Double Whammy To Creme Egg Fans
In a double pronged attack on the glory of Easter, Cadbury’s has wound up customers by changing the recipe of its Creme Eggs and also reducing the number in a box from 6 to 5.
The Sun chased up reports that the latest batch of Creme Eggs tasted different, with Cadbury’s confirming to the tabloid that it has switched out Dairy Milk for a “standard cocoa mix chocolate” in the shell.
A Cadbury spokesperson said, “the Creme Egg has never been called the Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Creme Egg. We have never played on the fact that Dairy Milk chocolate was used.”
As if that wasn’t bad enough, the second uppercut came when consumers realised that there is now one less egg in each multipack, though this isn’t reflected with a proportionally similar price decrease.
They posted the image below to Facebook a few days ago with the tag line “Creme Eggs are back. And we’re totes emosh.” As emotional as they were, the top comment seemed more objective.
The insanely sweet treats are only available three months a year. This means you have until April 5th to get your hands on a slightly more expensive, standard cocoa mix Cadbury’s Creme Egg.
