Before we get to our review of these limited edition Cadbury Creme Egg cookies, I request the help of our readers.
Regardless of whether or not you celebrate Easter, you’re well-aware that the Cadbury Creme Egg appears in the months leading up to spring since the beginning of forever. I can remember this commercial like it was yesterday – my chunky self seated Indian-style 6 inches from the television screen and shoving Cadbury Creme Eggs into my face.
Cadbury Creme Eggs are made with a milk chocolate shell and a white/yellow fondant filling to mimic the unfertilized reproductive cycles we know as eggs. Let us all collectively overlook the fact that rabbits don’t lay eggs – the Cadbury Creme Egg is what Easter is all about.
But something has long bothered me and I need help from all of you reading this (Mom and Dad). Didn’t the the filling inside a Cadbury Creme Egg used to be much more runny like an actual egg yolk?
Today’s Cadbury Creme Egg seems to have a much thicker, pasty filling than I remember. I can’t find any information regarding a changes to the formula (outside of the unrelated #CremeEggGate that affected the UK Creme Eggs a couple years ago). I’ve lost many nights of sleep over this, so please… let me know if I’m crazy in the comments below.
Cadbury Creme Egg Cookies are somewhat of a fantasy product – traditional Cadbury Creme Eggs combined with the timeless cookie. The package describes them as cookies with a white and yellow fondant filling covered in milk chocolate. The formula is simple – it’s a Cadbury Creme Egg repurposed with a cookie layer in the middle.
The package also says if I find a white cookie, I will win $1,000.
I did not win the $1,000.
I first sampled some of the chocolate/cookie combo without the filling. The milk chocolate is no cause for excitement. It’s not rich or even all that sweet. The cookie layer is a little softer than I expected too; it almost felt a little stale. The cookie’s taste is eerily similar to a Chips Ahoy! cookie, which came as a total surprise.
The fondant filling to Cadbury Creme Egg Cookies tastes just as you’d expect – like the inside of a Cadbury Creme Egg. The texture is a lot softer and runnier, similar to what I THINK the creme used to be in Cadbury Creme Eggs. The filling adds the sweetness that the outside lacked plus an ungodly amount more. I know we all love to endure this excessively sweet filling once a year to celebrate the holiday and the nostalgia of it all, but the two components just didn’t click together to create something magical as I had hoped. It really just tasted like a stale Chips Ahoy! Cookie covered in blah chocolate with a really sweet filling.
Cadbury Creme Egg Cookies aren’t the fantasy we all wanted them to be. They’re a fun novelty and I wouldn’t be upset if the Easter Bunny left me a pack in my Easter basket, but I would be kinda pissed if he left multiple.
