Outrage as Cadbury’s owner changes Creme Egg recipe

image
Print Friendly

The Cadbury’s Creme Egg was first launched 43 years ago in 1971. 

Fans of the sickly-sweet fondant-filled snack may be shocked to learn, however, that the company’s US owner has quietly changed the recipe. It’s no yolk!!

The American food giant that owns Cadbury’s is facing strong criticism for “secretly” rolling out a new “cheap-tasting” Creme Egg. Kraft Foods has replaced the hugely popular Cadbury’s Dairy Milk shell with one made from a standard cocoa mix chocolate, according to The Sun newspaper. Apparently this new recipe makes the Creme Egg taste like ‘cheap chocolate’.

To add insult to injury, this year they are reducing the numbers in the multi-pack box from 6 to 5, however the price all remain unchanged!

Are you a fan of the Cadbury’s Creme Egg? Are they one of your guilty pleasures? Do you love them or hate them?

I do not enjoy Cadbury's chocolate as much as I used to, it does not have the same flavour any more, and I am a chocolate fan! I have not tried the new Creme Egg.

Having been given a belated Easter gift of a Cadbury's Egg, together with two creme eggs I just had to eat one of the small ones (as you do!) I was always partial to a Creme Egg or two when they were on sale but will never buy one again as the new formula is just not as enjoyable as the old one!

Kraft have destroyed the Creme Egg and we should all show our disapproval by not buying them. I always bought them for Easter but have steered clear of them this year after hearing of the substitution of cheap American styled chocolate instead of Cadbury's Dairy Milk. Cadbury chocolate is now banned in America as Hershey would never sell another piece of the rubbish they call chocolate if Cadbury continued. Looks like Hershey are sneaking in over here to try and takeover our market.

Anything for a quick buck. I always thought we were a great manufacturing nation and could stand ON OUR OWN IN THE WORLD MARKET.
This is yet another example of us becoming a country reliant on others to keep our nation alive.
We are in Europe's Pocket!
We are in America'a Pocket!

Are we going to leave Europe?
And become the next STATE OF AMERICA.

I am Scottish through and through, I support Nicola Sturgeon because I think the UK should be able to decide as a separate nation i,e. Scotland :Northern Ireland:Wales >England. Perhaps with a thing similar to a united group able to trade with the World and not be beholding to them,

I think it is outrageous! I bought a box of what I thought was the usual 6 only to find there was only five in it. That was the first shock. Then when I bit into one later that day, I immediately noticed the difference in the texture and taste of the chocolate, AND where had the fondant " yolk" gone.
I'm all for changes for the better, but this isn't better Cadbury, bring back our British Custom "egg" immediately or I will not be buying them anymore.

American chocolate is not good, that is why Hershey had Cadbury's chocolate banned. I tried Hershey and would not eat it again if I was paid to. If the Americans have to eat rubbish then fine but we don't have to follow that lead. Let Kraft know we don't want cheap alternatives, we like our Cadbury and want to keep it, but as it was 20 years ago - not the modified stuff we have now.

Cadbury owners Kraft, also gave into Hershey in the U.S. that Cadbury can no longer be imported into the U.S., can't see why Kraft
bought Cadbury in the first place.

Should have just opened Kraft in the UK and left Cadbury alone. John Cadbury must be turning in his grave!

Shame on Kraft, but greater shame on Cadbury's for selling out. Cadbury's chocolate was legend, but sadly no longer. Chocolate tastes over sweet and tacky.

Give us back our original cream eggs (complete with yokes) - they are a british institution. They can keep their tasteless rubbish for the American market and their sneeky way of increasing profits by reducting the number in the egg boxes from 6 to 5 stinks. If the sellers of chicken eggs did this, there would be total outrage. We are British and proud to be so and we sell our eggs by the doz. or 1/2 doz.

I have eaten cream egg all my life and will miss them (or at least the real thing) sadly, but will not be buying this rubbish in future.

Shame on you Kraft for making our English Cream egg chocolate taste horrible and cheap just like all the sweets in the U.S. The cream egg has always been a favourite for my whole family buying these over the hollow big eggs for Easter. We also buy loads whenever we can as it's our favourite chocolate treat. I tasted one about two weeks ago when they first appeared in the shops and was very disappointed. The chocolate tasted so cheap and synthetic. To add insult to injury you have reduced the pack size from 6 eggs to 5 for the same price. You might be able to sell this in the the U.S. Market with your cost cutting but not here in the U.K..... This is the homeland of the true chocoholic. I will not be buying any more out of principle. another lost customer 🙁

They are obviously doing this to make more money but are pretty thick if they think that skimping on quality and changing recipe is going to fool a nation of Cadburys chocolate lovers/addicts, then they need to think again. I for one will not buy the eggs if they change them and we should all boycott their sales to teach them that we want quality and how dare they change a national icon!!
I knew this would happen...........!
So please do NOT change the recipe charge us a couple of pence more if you must but "Hands Off" !!!

Cream eggs do now taste like the hollow chocolate Easter egg of yesteryear . Not a patch on the real Cadbury.. It's just a name now , the wispa bars are similar. They have a white film / dusty look to them and do not taste of chocolate...

Myself and my family ( now grown up ) have been buying Cream Eggs for nearly 30 years we all tried them this year and guess who will not be buying Cadbury's Cream Eggs ever again.

I also refuse out of principle to buy any Cadbury's product that they have decreased the size of the weight.

An American company, but I bet any money that the american's are still getting the quality and much bigger bars, because if they weren't than they would boycott the company and the product.

We as consumers pay more and the Americans consumer pays less.

What we need to do as a community is everyone boycott the products where we have been forced to except the change and then watch the company's have a change of heart.

My old dad use to say " if you don't buy the product they are selling / offering, than the company has three choices that being.

One : Convert back to how the product was.
Two : Sell cheaper or increase its size ( which ever is applicable )
Three : Go out of business

The third option does not really come into it, but watch them bitch when there profits are down.

So basically its down to us the consumer. I know of a company that has lost on average £400 per week because of its greedy were untouchable attitude and other people have followed in my footsteps ( some through word of mouth others because like myself have had enough of them ) now the company is bitching about their losses. Once you lose a customer its very hard to get them to revert back to using you.

Hi, I am a proud owner of a sweet shop in Sussex and we have already gone threw 5-6 boxes of there creme eggs.

I personally cant taste the difference and neither can my customers, (and yes they are fully aware that there have been changes to the ingredients).

I think that if you liked them then, you will like them now. Do not listen to everything that you hear or read in the papers, you need to make up your own mind whether your now a 'love it' or 'hate it' kind of person.

Make your own judgement about the chocolate.

I am or should I say was a chocoholic. Thank you cadburys for destroying a great company and reducing it to making American so called 'chocolate'. The only time I never ate chocolate was when I was on holiday in the States for 3 weeks every year. I can now loose more weight as you've imported your cheap recipe over here - and I for one will not be buying that ****.

What did the share-holders expect when they sold off the company. They ignored they opinion of the Cadbury's family not to sell and went ahead anyway. You have to remember that Cadbury's was a rival company and they have been slowly closing it bit by bit for years. It is such a shame, I hope that they change it back to the original recipe but I won't be holding my breath.

Well! it didn't take Kraft long to try and destroy the British taste for superior chocolate products - Over the past 40 odd years the Creme Egg has become something of an institution. Loved or loathed everyone has heard of them; knows who makes them and now they know who to blame for mucking about with them. I do wish that Cadbury's had chosen a little wiser for someone to buy their company. Have you tasted some of the other products produced by Kraft. Hmm synthetic is a good description of most of their products I have tasted.

NOW they are horrible...... Just another cheap tasting sickly chocolate! I use to live abroad & we longed for cadbury's chocolate because no other chocolate tasted as good, its so disappointing they have changed such a good product! Only plus side is it's curbed my chocolate addiction!

I did wonder if Kraft would change anything once they took over our beloved Cadburys. Hasn't take them long has it? Small but notable changes, cut backs, penny pinching....shame on you Kraft for your superior arrogant American attitude. Why think you can do everything better? Clearly you can't!

Creme eggs were something I eagerly anticipated after Christmas, and frankly I felt like my taste buds were malfunctioning! Do the folks at Kraft think we wouldn't notice? Cadbury was successful because it made delicious confectionary, it didn't change recipes that worked. The great British public are a force to be reckoned with, if we don't like something we just stop buying. I'll be saving lots of money this year as sadly Kraft have ruined a Great British icon 🙁

The last time I had Cadbury's chocolate it tasted powdery and much sweeter than it used to be. This obviously isn't the only thing they've changed their recipe on. To be honest, I'd be more likely to buy that disgusting Kinnerton's chocolate now, than Cadbury's. I won't be buying any more of their rubbish. Thornton's is better, and so is the cheap chocolate from Aldi and Lidl. The best way to get them to see what they're doing is to vote with your purses and stop buying their rubbish.

I bought 3 cadburys cream eggs to try for myself as I am a big fan of them and can't wait for this time of year to buy them. I was very disappointed, the chocolate tasted different and the Middle was a lot more thinner and hardly any yellow showing. They did look smaller. I won't be in a hurry to buy anymore.
I am very surprised that Cadbury did not insist that Kraft kept to the same recipe.

No doubt this has been seen as 'improving the recipe'. So many companies make these 'improvements' often because they are trying to save money and the so-called improvements are just the opposite. Why change something that has worked for all these years? Serve them right if everyone stopped buying them, see how their cost-cutting helps then!

I've never been a fan of the Creme Egg, as I don't like the oozy middle..However, there is something more ominous happening here, and that is that Kraft is obviously changing the CHOCOLATE recipe, which means the wonderful taste of Cadbury's chocolate bars will possibly be lost forever..I was so afraid this might happen one day..I was raised in the U.S., of English background, and used to look forward to relatives sending Cadbury's chocolates over to us, often at Christmas..I have preferred Cadbury's chocolates to American chocolate ever since, and it would be a monumental crime if the recipe- passed down from the original Quaker-owned family- would be changed and therefore lost to us forever!
