Anyway, after much hunting, Creme Egg Bars (aka ‘Cadbury Dairy Milk with Creme Egg’) have suddenly appeared in all my local shops. And I have taken it upon myself to buy them all.
I have to say, these are rather yummy, but they do suffer a little from the same low fondant-to-chocolate ratio that the mini creme eggs do. Basically, there’s just not enough of it!
I also noticed the fondant appears to be much more orange than the fondant in proper creme eggs. I’m not entirely sure why, but I’m sure there’s a good scientific explanation.
At the moment, these bars appear to only be available in 45g size. Obviously, this isn’t enough, so I have taken to buying at least 2 at once. But the best thing about these is simply the fact that they’re bars. Unwrapping real Creme Eggs in public can be a messy experience and often leads to humiliation when you end up with fondant all over your face while on the bus.
These bars solve that problem instantly, but we must have bigger bars. I won’t be satisfied until I can get a 500g Creme Egg Bar.
It’s not much to ask, is it?
