As we gradually enter the Christmas season, loads of holiday-themed candies will be hitting store shelves. And what makes us think of Christmas more than the Cadbury Creme Egg ? Nope, that wasn't a typo, the Easter staple is now being marketed for Christmas as the Cadbury Ornament Creme Egg. A co-worker gave me two that she recently purchased at Walgreen's. The Ornament Creme Egg is exactly like the traditional Creme Egg except that it has a red, snowflake-covered foil wrapper.
I personally know some Creme Egg lovers that will be very happy to hear this. As for me, I'm still working on making it through the egg I started 30 minutes ago. I enjoy the flavor in moderation, but sometimes the ultra-sweet fondant is too much for me to handle in large quantities, especially considering I haven't even had lunch yet. I'm a bigger fan of the mini Creme Eggs which come out at Easter. Maybe they'll have mini Ornament Creme Eggs? I'll have to investigate.
