Easter yolk of the day — my kids love Cadbury eggs

1303508245-cadbury-eggsWe baby boomers grew up on homegrown chocolate eggs, jelly beans and bunnies from local chocolatiers in our Easter baskets. Then came the Reese’s eggs.

None of that impressed my kids. They know eggsactly what they want. They love Cadbury Creme Eggs – those chocolate eggs that appear to have a real yolk inside (which has always made me a little sick).

The commercials have had the Cadbury bunny clucking as the advertising icon for decades. According to Wikipedia, the Hershey Company markets the creme eggs in the U.S. market, but the eggs hail from Cadbury UK and Cadbury Adams in Canada. The Cadbury brothers started their candy company in 1923. The delightful creme egg came along as kind of a hybrid of Fry’s creme eggs, a recipe Cadbury used when it merged the companies together.

 

I have to hunt these eggs down every year, and they do disappear. At Walmart, you can find a five-pack for under $3.50. They also have the miniature eggs. Here’s a link to make your own. Cluck cluck.

    I agree Pam. Where I am, Cadbury’s aren’t as big as the others so I also have to shop a little deeper for my kids for them as well. But they are worth the effort. There’s something about the chocolate that’s just a little bit creamier than the rest.
