Cadbury Screme Egg Pots of Joy (Waitrose) By @Cinabar
It is actually really fun to have a new dessert that is Halloween themed, and these Cadbury Screme Egg Pots of Joy just looked fab. They are based on the Screme Egg, which is the seasonal version of the Cadbury Creme Egg, but has a green goo coloured centre instead of the usual yolk. This dessert is actually the same, there is already a regular Cadbury Creme Egg Pots of Joy dessert, and this is the same except the yellow yolk layer has been replaced by a green goo coloured layer. The flavour isn’t changed either, the dessert still has the nice mix of chocolate and fondant taste. I guess this is an easy win for Cadbury, just changing a bit of the colour, and giving it a nice seasonal twist. I liked that the dessert did have a good sweet fondant taste, and did go some way to properly replicating the Screme Egg flavour.
I thought the packaging was very bright, and perfect for Halloween. Green is very much the in colour here. I am always weirdly wary of green colourings in food, but this was an okay tone as it wasn’t too bright for me. I’m okay if the food is green flavoured, i.e. lime sweet being green is fine, but just green always feels a bit weird. Guess everyone has their quirks!
Pretty much all the desserts had a best before of 2nd November, so get them while you can!
