I've been on a minor kick of trying out new things. Apparently there are a ton of things that I never grew up eating, so I don't have a lot of the nostalgia that a lot of people do with some foods. One of these is Cadbury Creme Eggs. Having never celebrated Easter, I never really got these when I was little, and as I grew up I guess I never really had a hankering for a ball of soft fondant, haha. I figured now was as good of a time as any to try these, since they are all over the place this time of year.
Unfortunately, Target did not have single eggs for sale, but had four-packs of the creme and caramel eggs. I will say that the idea of these is cute- who wants a plastic egg, or worse, a hollow real egg, when you can have a completely edible chocolate + filling egg, right?
Caramel and Creme eggs- opened
...That being said, I literally would rather eat a plastic egg than ever eat one of these Cadbury eggs, ever, ever, ever, again. These were just overly sweet and overwhelming from the first tentative bite. I honestly can't believe that people can actually eat a whole one without their teeth melting. I have to say, I sort of expected this with the Creme egg- just the idea of soft fondant creme makes me gag a little. But the caramel- I had higher hopes for, since I love caramel inside chocolate. It's just too much, too sweet, too gooey, and just too...blechhhhh for me. I will stick with the sugar-shell mini eggs from now on- now those, now I can get behind...crunchy, chocolatey, yummm.
What say you, lovely readers? Are you pro- or anti- these Cadbury sugar bombs known as the Creme and Caramel Eggs? Let the battle begin! :o)
