Cadbury Caramel Egg

Cadbury Caramel Egg

The “proper” name for this would be ‘Cadbury Dairy Milk With Caramel Egg’, but the whole Dairy Milk superbrand thing is really starting to annoy me now, so I’m not going to play Cadbury’s silly branding game. As far as I’m concerned, this is a Caramel Egg.

With that out of the way, as you can see, I bought a 3 pack of eggs again. Purely in order to give you a well rounded review, of course.

The eggs are the same size as a Creme Egg (and the Mars Egg for that matter).

Cadbury Caramel Egg

As you can see from this photo, eating a Caramel Egg can be a messy experience. I don’t recommend pausing to take photos unless you absolutely have to. The caramel is thick and soft, but seems to flow as though it has a life of its own.

Taste-wise, it’s very sweet but doesn’t have a lot of other flavours going on. I’m not convinced the caramel works particularly well in egg form, as there’s just too much of it. In the Caramel bars, you get significantly more chocolate than filling, so it just adds a nice chewyness to the chocolate. With so much filling inside an egg, you can’t help but notice the ordinariness of the caramel.

Cadbury’s Caramel is one of the chocolates I buy fairly regularly, but I don’t think I’d consider buying it in egg form again – I would actually rate the Mars Egg above this one.

My search for a Creme Egg killer will continue….

    How about trying the Galaxy Caramel Egg. Given that you liked the bar shaped version, I’d recommend the egg. Its caramel is vastly superior to the Cadbury one.

  2. I rather like the Caramilk bar but find the Caramel Egg to be just too much. However, there is a mini version (I got some from Canada, but they sell a version here in the US as well) that seems to have better proportions.

  3. Don’t forget the Rolo egg, just to keep the caramel egg test aboveboard! Although I have to say I find all the caramel eggs a little overwhelming with the quantity of caramel, and it’s not like you can have a rest between mouthfuls due to the caramel oozing out the splintering self destructing chocolate shell like a scene from terminator 2.

  4. OMG that picture makes it look sexual

    That is a sexy picture. I’m about all candy egged out after an indulgent weekend, but I wouldn’t turn down a Cadbury Caramel Egg.

  6. These definitely don’t compare to the creme eggs. The creme eggs have a great flavor that adds to the flavor not to mention the color that greatly adds to the overall presentation and experience. The few times I’ve had the caramel eggs I was disappointed as well. For some reason the caramel in egg form is almost flavorless and does not really contribute much to the chocolate shell. Tsk tsk…
