People Are Furious With "The Americans" For Changing The Recipe For Cadbury's Creme Eggs

*Shakes fist at America*

Posted on

A Kraft spokesman told the Mirror:

It's no longer Dairy Milk. It's similar, but not exactly Dairy Milk. We tested the new one with consumers. It was found to be the best one for the Creme Egg, which is why we've used it this year. The Creme Egg has never been called the Cadbury's Dairy Milk Creme Egg. We have never played on the fact that Dairy Milk chocolate was used.

It gets worse. Multipacks of three and six have been changed to boxes of five and twelve.

Enough is enough! Austerity has gone too far … Where’s the 6th creme egg gone? #disappointed

  1. What are your thoughts on the great Creme Egg outrage of 2015?

    I for one am outraged. The Great British Creme Egg has been ruined by some Americans and we must take a firm line on it. If this means military action, so be it.
    I thought it was time for a revamp. Creme Eggs were getting boring. We needed some American innovation.
    I couldn't care less about Creme Eggs. They're sickly and gross. The best change that could have been made was to discontinue them.
