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.
