Will you be buying any Cadbury Creme Eggs this year?

The Cadbury Creme Egg recipe debate has been in full swing since Christmas! 

To many, the Cadbury Creme Egg is 150kcal of sweet, sickly gloop, containing vegetable fat and paprika extract. But to lovers of this popular Easter treat, invented in 1971, it is a (large) mouthful of gooey joy, and should not be missed.

Last year, Cadbury confirmed that it would replace the hugely popular Cadbury’s Dairy Milk shell with one made from a standard cocoa mix chocolate. This made many consumers very angry as we found out by the thousands of comments left under our Speakers Corner debate.

So now the makers of Cadbury Creme Eggs, Mondelez (Formerly Kraft) are launching an Easter fightback in the wake of suffering multi-million pound losses after a controversial change of the chocolate recipe last year.

A report by the trade magazine, The Grocer, found that the brand’s best-selling Easter lines lost more than £10 million in sales last year!

Will you be buying any Cadbury Creme Eggs this year?  How do you feel about the new recipe chocolate? Did you do the taste test last year? Share your views in our Cadbury Creme Egg debate below.

Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk!!! Cheap chocolate, sickly filling and utterly vile.
Lindt eggs are the best!
I did buy myself 2 Lindt gold bunnies this year, but only when they were reduced to less than half price.
That reminds me - better eat one now!!!

Rubbish chocolate from Kraft, American Company, so why do we have the so Called "Special Relationship?"

I'm intrigued that one or two folk don't like the fact that Cadbury uses certified gelatine - please will someone explain to me what is wrong with gelatine ?

I am surprised and disappointed to find out that Cadbury products are halal and I won't be purchasing them anymore. I never cared for their sickly sweet crème eggs but did used to enjoy the Cadbury milk chocolate.

Tried the new recipe (bought as 3 in a box) and they were revolting, nothing like the thick, gooey chocolate that we all love BUT I discovered that if you buy them as singles (3 for £1 in Tesco) - they still have the original yummy coating.

Never ever liked these horrid confections. They are just yuk. Generally, Easter Eggs are a total waste of money and seriously over packaged. I will buy myself to a bag of M&S giant chocolate buttons for an Easter Treat. Delicious when they have been chilled in the fridge.

Unfortunately Cadbury's chocolate has completely changed since Kraft took over. British tastes are different from America and changing a recipe that worked is wrong, but then i'm sure profits always come first.

Creme eggs were aways my treat to me during the Easter season, but I stopped buying them last year, the new recipe for the "chocolate" is awful. Sainsbury & Lidl both have better tasting chocolate so I buy that now.

I haven't bought any of their products since I learned that Cadbury's are 'halal compliant' so, they can stick their cream eggs where the sun doesn't shine.

I have never liked the creme eggs as I find them far too sickly and sweet so I definitely will not be buying any.

I never liked Cadbury's Cream Eggs so cannot compare the old to new.

Border Cream eggs that had a chocolate filling were my favourites, but you cannot buy them now - shame. Still, it stops me piling on the pounds.

sadly since Cadbury were taken over the recipe seems different, more waxy and less milky/creamy consistency - don't buy it anymore.

Won't be wasting money on tiny things which taste horrid and bear absolutely no resemblance to the original product. Plus they cost a fortune. Shame on you, Kraft.

Far too sickly, not sure but probably full of soya and lecithin just like the Roses chocolates that we were given at Christmas.

Still buy the odd one occasionally but they're not the same as they were. Smaller for sure. I prefer other chocolate though.

I must be the only person in the world that does not go mad over Cadbury's eggs, and even more so now I have just read that their products are halal.

That's a little harsh petesline9, why not treat this as a light hearted fun question rather than commenting that if someone wants a small sweet 'treat' they either have a weak constitution or are overweight?

I don't know I have not tried them yet , because you cannot get 6 in a box,I know that you use to get a box of 6 ,today you only get a box of 5, but the box of 5 today look a lot smaller than last year. Anyone remember the Mars bars, yes that ingredients was changed in the 80s , it takes more like a milky way bar, then a mars bar.bring back the real Mars bars

Can't stand them, too rich and sweet for my taste. Certainly don't appreciate the new imitation 'chocolate' the new Cadbury owners have inflicted on us on the majority of products. It weren't broke so don't try to fix it!
Just an aside, I much prefer the home-made ones -

Since the Cadburys sell-out, the taste of the chocolate has changed and is nowhere near as nice. My wife,a total chocoholic,doesn't like the taste of the new Cadburys chocolate at all. We therefore do not buy ANY Cadburys chocolate at all, preferring Nestle,Thorntons or most Swiss,Belgian or German chocolate. Another great British institution dies,and Britain is a poorer place for it.

No Shunter but they soon knock a hypo on the head! I think the new company is a total disgrace the way they lied about keeping the factories open when they had already planned to move the production to Poland. Hate liars. They don't taste the same but I still eat them, not often and a box can last 6 months. Hated it when they altered the flavours in the Roses selection as well as they added coffee cream 🙁
