Cadburys Creme Eggs

  • h

Hi,

As a student back in England I LOVED Cadbury's Creme Eggs but now I am studying in America for a while and really ned to find some...at least before easter, anyhow.

Does anyone know any stores that sell them. And if so, how much do they generally cost over here.

Thanks!

  1. They are really hard to locate before Easter - i've never found them. But thanks to retailers starting every holiday season several months early, you can find them in stores now. Walgreens drugstores are a reliable source. And make sure you hit the stores the day *after* easter when you can get them for dirt cheap.

    1. As we get closer to easter, they will be available everywhere. My recollection,is that they cost about .75-$1.00 each, but that could be off a bit. The last ones I had, came in a box of 24. For my own taste, they always sound aand look better than they taste, they're sooo sweet.

        Agreed. Can't finish one. The peanut butter versions are another story...

      2. Try closeout places like 99 Cents Only and Big Lots stores.

        Failing that, try ordering them online.

        1. Sigh - I love them too but for YEARS I've wanted cadbury to make a dark chocolate variety. I started thinking that probably 15 years ago and have still not seen it around. Has anyone?

            I don't know about Cadbury but I believe Laura Secord makes a dark chocolate creme filled egg.

          2. I don't know if the Cadbury's eggs here will taste as good--there have been several discussions on these boards of US Cadbury vs. UK Cadbury taste differences. The US versions tend to have less chocolate and higher percentages of sweetener. I don't know if the same holds true for the eggs, though.

              That's what I was thinking... US Cadbury chocolate tastes different than UK Cadbury chocolate (I prefer the UK version, which you can find at Cost Plus). With Valentine's Day right around the corner, they might issue red-and-white wrapped eggs for the holiday. Cadbury eggs (both the creme filled and the solid mini eggs) used to be Easter-only, but I think they've started jumping on the every-holiday-sells-candy trend.

                You can get U.K. Cadbury items online here:

                https://www.jollygrub.com/OnLineStore1/ Bring up the category "Easter Eggs & Goodies"

                And it looks like they're located in Amherst, NH, so you could call to confirm that it's U.K. Cadbury's chocolate, and NOT the Hershey brand put out here in the States.
