Cadbury’s Mini Eggs  (Sainsbury’s)
Okay so Mini Eggs are really by no means a new product, and I cannot lay claim to having never tried them before either. However consider this to be about the Mini Eggs released in 2010. I felt compelled to write this, after someone at work alerted me to the fact that Mini Eggs don’t taste ‘right’ this year.
I am well aware that Mini Eggs have never been filled with Dairy Milk chocolate, but I was curious to see what was meant by them tasting odd and not quite right. Firstly a bit of research shows that the calories per 100g has changed slightly since last year, which would confirm some sort of recipe change.
So, the verdict: I felt that these eggs tasted sweeter than last year, not as creamy and that the shell had a stronger flavour. This seemed to be the consensus from Twitter too (thanks to all those that replied)! I have to say I preferred last year’s recipe, but I did not find them in anyway offensive this year. As this seems to have caused some controversy, I would love second opinions on what you think of the Mini Eggs.
