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.
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….
