Cadbury Creme Eggs may not taste like they used to anymore
The Cadbury Creme Eggs that have been a delicacy relished especially on Easter has now become the matter of outrage after American owners of the Cadbury Crème Eggs have changed the recipe for British buyers.
Crème Eggs first started selling in 1971 and it has been a favorite among children and a sweet memory about Easter holidays and a famous treat in summer which everyone enjoyed during their summer holidays. The Cadbury’s American owners Mondolez International, which is the new name given for Kraft has recently changed the recipe of the chocolate shell and announced that the shell will be a standard, traditional Cadbury milk chocolate as opposed to the Cadbury Dairy Milk that has been used until recently.
Also, they have started selling packs of five eggs instead of the six eggs- pack which has added fuel to the fire. They are always sold in ones, threes or sixes. The six pack cost £3.05 and the recommended price for the new pack with five eggs is £2.85 while some stores sell them for £2. As the price is too cheap, there are concerns that something fishy might be going on.
A spokesman from Mondolez said, the fundamentals of the Cadbury Creme Egg remain exactly the same – delicious milk chocolate and the unique creme centre that consumers love. We have always used a range of milk chocolate blends for different products, depending on their shape or consistency.” He said that the chocolate might have had Cadbury Dairy Milk but it has never been marketed as a Cadbury Dairy Milk product and that should settle it.
