Actor B.J. Novak fro the U.S. version of “The Office” recently appeared on the chat show Late Night with Conan O’Brien and presented conclusive evidence that Creme Eggs have shrunk:

Of course, this is only actually only applies to the U.S., where Creme Eggs are made by Hersheys and not Cadbury and the web site cited is actually the UK Cadbury Schweppes site. And besides, everyone knows the UK Creme Eggs are huge.

  1. I definitely noticed that they were smaller lately. I first had one about 8 years ago and remember them being a lot bigger than they are now.

  2. I *KNEW* there was a reason I hadn’t had any creme eggs this Easter season….

  3. Hmm… the power of Chocablog!

    Cadbury’s has now changed the wording on its site to:

    “Why has the size of the egg changed?”

    Oh, now that IS interesting.

  5. I have this movie on my blog too because I was shocked as well as amused by the content.

    As a UK resident I have to say that the creme eggs here are smaller than they once where and the chocolate shell is a lot thinner – esoecially the lover half of the egg (the fattest part) which used to be a THICK piece of chocolate and a real treat to leave until last. Now the shell is fairly thin all around.

    I certianly wouldn’t describe the eggs here as huge but I can’t compare their size to the USA wggs on sale this year.

    Could somebody post an alternate link to the video? The Youtube version has been removed.

    Cheers.
