Cadbury creme eggs - why are they sold out everywhere?

Yes, Cadbury creme eggs are a guilty pleasure. And, apparently, I am not alone because all of the stores are out of them! Does anyone know where I can cure my craving??

  1. they should be in stock because its that time of the year obviously very popular if you can't find them.

    1. Try a local drug store or even a craft store. I know Joann's is stocking them, Rite-aid and Walgreens have them too. Heck, even 7-11 and Circle K have these right now.

      1. I see them year round at the little English store next door to Tea & Sympathy and A Salt & Battery on Greenwich just below 13th Street.

        1. That's why I freeze them. I am never out of stock.

          But to answer the question, I saw them recently at CVS and ShopRite.

          1. Walgreens have them.

            I filmed at the factory once, and there were vats and vats of the white and yellow fillings and the sweet smell was sick-making. Never eaten once since.

              They have ORANGE cream ones now. Almost redemptive I should think. :)

            2. I love them too, I bought them over the weekend at Duane Reade (79th and Amsterdam location).

              1. I see them EVERYWHERE!! I've had enough already!

                1. Thanks, everyone. I found some at Rite Aid. The orange creme are yummy, but I'm a purist. :) The freezing idea is a great one except for one thing - I can't stop myself from eating them all at once!!!

                    You have to bury them in the freezer, way back behind all the stuff you never eat, and then go do something involved and exhausting like clean out a closet to forget about it. Then a few days later, when you're having a really desperate chocolate need, your frozen creme eggs will pop into your head like a miracle from heaven.

                      On a recent (October) trip to London I discovered Cadbury Creme Egg BARS! They're apparently carrying them all year round over there because people love the filling.

                        Oh my goodness. This is dangerous information. Now I must ask my relatives for those as well as Guinness Marmite....

                        1. re: marmite

                          I was pretty stunned myself. The first sighting was in a candy machine at the Heathrow Tube station.

                          I'm embarrassed to say that I actually took a picture.

                          I love stocking up on candy when I'm in the U.K. I spent the rest of my trip snacking on them and buying them for myself and others back home.

                          Sadly, they're all gone now...

                    2. Give www.candwarehouse.com a shot ... I saw them on there once ... I think they are sold in bulk ... $48 for 48 ... enjoy ...


                      1. oops that should be candywarehouse.com ... sorry ... and click on easter candy

                        1. Try Target -- I buy enough to feed my daughter's craving there every year.

                          1. Try the Walgreen's on 23rd and Park. I saw tons of them in all different flavors there just a couple of days ago. Good luck! :)

                              That is very dangerous information... But thanks so much!

                            2. I have noticed that you can buy the creme eggs separately, but I cannot find them in the 3 pack anymore...I have only seen the caramel creme eggs in the 3 packs...its very frustrating and much more pricey this way...does anyone have any info on this?

                                I bought the creme eggs in the three-pack last week at Target.
