Creme Eggs for Christmas?

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.

You may fact check with Thee Kurt but I can eat an entire "caddy" as I call them in one bite, without opening my mouth for air.

How'dya like that?

While I've never been a huge fan of the Cadbury Creme Eggs, Cadbury makes perhaps my favorite chocolate candy (that's not a candy bar) ever. Cadbury Mini-Eggs have been a part of my life since their inception. And I delight in their tasty, chocolatee goodness. What's your opinion of the Cadbury Mini-Eggs.

I LOVE Cadbury Mini Eggs! Good call. They are one of my all-time favorite Easter candies. Breaking through that thin crunchy shell to get to the cool, cocoa-y chocolate - ahhhh, what could be better? Now I want some.
