Cadbury’s Creme Egg Recipe Changes + Fans Have a Melt Down
The Cadbury Creme Egg has had its recipe tweaked just a bit, and now makers of the Easter candy are walking on egg shells with fans after this and other changes. The recipe change to the traditional candy affects those eggs sold in the UK, so the U.S. eggs remain the same (thank goodness). The big change in the chocolate egg with a creamy white and yellow fondant yolk is with the eggs' chocolate.
The egg was traditionally made using Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate but now thanks to a new recipe they are made using a more traditional Cadbury milk chocolate. Cadbury Creme Egg makers, Mondelez, said via a spokesperson:
We have always used a range of milk chocolate blends for different products, depending on their shape or consistency. The fundamentals of the Cadbury Creme Egg remain exactly the same, delicious milk chocolate and the unique creme centre that consumers love."
