Cadbury Creme Egg Biscuits Review
I've been on the hunt for these new Creme Egg biscuits for a while now. I usually manage to spot new products in shops immediately but these proved to be quite illusive here up North! Luckily I finally found a pack in Tesco this week for a reasonable £1.
There's 6 biscuits per pack which is a decent amount for the price. They're made by Burtons Biscuits under license from Cadbury (who produce famous biscuits such as Wagon Wheels, Jammie Dodgers, Maryland Cookies etc), and look rather similar to other biscuits in this range such as the Cadbury Caramel and Turkish Delight biscuits.
The difference being of course that they contain a layer of the famous gooey fondant that is Creme Egg! Here it is in all its gooey glory:
Taste-wise they were good...almost too good. They surprised me by just how much they managed to recreate the classic creme egg flavour - that super-sweet vanilla hinted fondant that we all know and love! The biscuit base brought a nice chocolatey crunch and of course the chocolate coating topped it all off nicely, making these a rather moreish snack. Needless to say it wasn't long before I ate all 6 biscuits, some of which I dunked in coffee to make them super-duper tasty!
Overall, these are a fantastic novelty Easter product and certainly didn't disappoint on the creme egg front. If you're a fan of Cadbury Creme Eggs you definitely have to try these out!
RATING: 8 out of 10.
