While cooking gadgets are fair game, we usually don’t cover a lot of actual food items here on OhGizmo! But I feel it’s my duty to spread the word about this truly amazing innovation. You see in previous years, the only time you could get your hands on the Cadbury Creme Egg was the few months leading up to Easter. After that they were removed from store shelves (after a week of heavy discounts) and presumably locked away in some vault until next Easter rolled around.
But the marketing gurus at Cadbury have finally realized that they don’t have to limit their Creme Egg sales to just Easter. Of course just selling chocolate ‘eggs’ makes no sense around the holidays, so the company is disguising them as ornaments instead. The disguise really only consists of a different colored foil wrapper, and the word ‘ornament’ added to the name, but that’s all that’s needed to satisfy those people who usually stock their freezers in order to enjoy the creme egg all year round.
Sadly, it seems my part of the world is not yet ready to accept this Easter treat at Christmas time, so I’ve been unable to find them anywhere. But I know this is just one step towards the ultimate dream of having Creme Eggs available all year round.
