Cadbury Salted Caramel Creme Eggs and friends By @SpectreUK

Cadbury Salted Caramel Creme Eggs and friends

Well, I must say this is very 'egg-citing'. Sorry, but I could help it. I'll try to stop 'yoking' around. It's Cadbury Creme Egg season already, or Easter as some people like to call it. Where chocolate eggs are in abundance for a few months of every year and many people try to decide how many different ways to eat there's, and certainly try to eat as many as possible before Cadbury stop making them until the next year.

Last year Cadbury had a prize of a few White Creme Eggs mysteriously dotted around the stores. I was very fortunate enough to be sent one. I know, unbelievable, but being a snack and booze blogger for nearly fifteen years has the odd perk here and there. This year is even better, White Creme Eggs are available in abundance, with the ubiquitous Dairy Milk Creme Eggs in a box accompanied by Cadbury Caramel Eggs, which have been a staple for many years.

Also available, I know, it's just getting even more 'egg-citing' (sorry, I can't help it) is that this year Cadbury Salted Caramel Eggs are available, and in their own box of five. I don't know why boxes of five either, but I'll try not to focus on that, just on the flavour. First I decided to do a taste comparison between the Salted Caramel Egg and the original Caramel Egg.

So to the Original first, I could smell the oozy caramel on first unwrapping the Original's foil. Of course, after biting off the top, I licked out as much of the oozy sweet caramel as possible, before dumping the rest of the egg in my gob. I haven't had one of these for about a year, and it was simply delicious.

So 'cracking' open the box to find the five eggs of the Salted Caramel variety, I immediately peeled back the foil wrapper of the first egg to fall into my paws. On unwrapping the Cadbury Salted Caramel Egg there was not such a sweet aroma of caramel from the identical looking milk chocolate egg, as the Original. On first taste I noticed the caramel wasn't so oozy, or sweet, but there wasn't much saltiness either. It's a more refined caramel flavour rather than just wall to wall sweetness. I did like it though, and I'd happily eat either egg as often as possible. It depends how you like your's, sweet or not so sweet caramel.

Information on the box; Each 40g egg 194 calories, 10g of fat, 19g of sugar, 1.4g of protein, and 0.27g of salt. Please see photograph for the ingredients.
