Cadburys Creme Eggs
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.
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.
Try closeout places like 99 Cents Only and Big Lots stores.
Failing that, try ordering them online.
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.
re: coney with everything
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:

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.
