Cadbury Creme Eggs are a staple of the Easter season. Even if the sugary fondant center is a bit too much to handle all at once, the creamy milk chocolate and the gooey filling is a delicious combination. I like the mini Cadbury Creme Eggs because they have a little bit better ratio of chocolate to filling for my tastes, but I recently got to try a Cadbury Creme Egg Twisted, which was even better.
The Creme Egg Twisted bar is a UK release from Cadbury. It’s a hollow log of their classic milk chocolate that is filled up with a yellow and white creme egg center. The bar is maybe 1/2 in diameter and about as long as a Twix bar is, with thick ridges (“twists”) running all along the bar. I would say that the ratio of chocolate to filling is perfect, just about 1-to-1. The creamy, milky taste of the chocolate, even though it is on the sweeter side, is a great contrast to the sugary filling and balances it out without dominating it. It’s nice that you can break the bar into a few sections as you eat, so that you don’t really have to consume the whole thing in one shot, unlike a creme egg.
This bar is not just an Easter item in the UK, but is available year-round. Even though this bar is probably not going to be widely available – if at all – in the US this Easter season, I can’t resist mentioning it just because of the tradition of creme eggs around the holiday. So if you’re a fan of those eggs, keep an eye out at import stores or if a friend is taking a trip overseas!
