“Life is no longer the same!” People are shocked to find out what really goes into Cadbury’s egg cream filler
Cadbury Creme Eggs appear every Easter, with many people getting in the holiday spirit when they see the sweet treats on supermarket shelves.
The egg consists of a hard milk chocolate shell encasing a sweet, gooey filling.
But have you ever wondered what Creme Egg goo is made of?
One person who thought of the question took to Twitter to find out and asked, “What’s inside the Creme Egg? Why is the cream orange and white?”
Other people were surprised to learn that the sticky filling actually consisted of fondant, itself made of icing sugar, and a bit of food coloring.
The little egg is made with a hard milk chocolate shell and when you bite into it, there’s a sweet, gooey filling
One Twitter user replied: The cream is like egg whites and egg yolks! Or so I heard.
Cadbury says the iconic egg medium is made from sugar, milk, glucose syrup, cocoa butter, invert sugar syrup, dried whey, vegetable fat and dried egg whites.
One person wrote: “Life is never the same when you realize the filling inside Cadbury Cream Eggs is just powdered sugar.”
But while this Twitter user was disappointed to learn the answer, others didn’t seem far behind.
Twitter users took to the platform to discuss whether they loved or hated the sweet Easter treat
One user commented: “I would drink a gallon of Cadbury Creme Egg filling.”
Another wrote: “If I knew how to make Cadbury egg cream filling, I would eat a whole bowl of it.”
Third he wrote: “Who else finds the creamy filling in a Cadbury Cream Egg utterly disgusting, yet somehow wonderful?”
UK citizens alone consume two-thirds of all cream eggs.
Cadbury has claimed that more than 500 million cream eggs are made throughout the year and not just around Easter time, which averages over 1,369,000 eggs each day.
But they’re not exactly one in five a day. Each 40-gram egg contains 26.5 grams of sugar, 6.1 grams of fat, and 3.7 grams of saturated fat.
Fast food chain Subway announced this week that it will be launching a limited edition Creme Egg sub, which consists of two crushed Creme Eggs melted on their delicious Italian bread.
They are offering the treatment free of charge on 7 April, Good Friday, at four stores across Tottenham Court Road, Central London, Central Shopping Centre, Liverpool, Lancemlette Service Station, Swansea and Sauchehale Street, Glasgow.
