Orange Cadbury Creme Egg package

I was really, really excited to hear about this new addition to the Cadbury Creme Egg Easter lineup. I have been an extremely loyal Cadbury Creme Egg fan over the years (I blame it on my mom never buying them for me as a kid and then “discovering” them in high school) but I am also an extremely picky Cadbury Creme Egg follower. I mean that in the best of ways. So far I have not come across a variation of the Cadbury Creme Egg that has lived up to the original in my opinion. Not the minis (the ratios are WAY off), not the caramel (what, no white or yolk in my egg?) and not the chocolate creme (tasted of greasiness and not chocolate). When I heard of an Orange Cadbury Creme Egg being released I eager to try it because it sounded like a variation that is still faithful to the original, yet different enough to seem new.

I felt in order to properly judge my first Orange Cadbury Creme Egg I had to have an original Cadbury Creme Egg tasting first. I haven’t had one since last May or so (my “stashes” never seem to last as long as I’d like) and it’s just as delicious as I remember. Sweet, creamy milk chocolate with a slight graininess (which I love because I find that it’s a great texture contrast) with the fondant center being thick, smooth and so sweet. It never fails to give that wonderful sugar rush.

Orange Cadbury Creme Egg

The Orange Cadbury Creme Egg upon unwrapping it looks just like the Cadbury Creme Egg except with a faint orange smell. Taking my first nibble of chocolate only from the very top I found the orange flavoring in the chocolate shell to be very good, light and orangey. Thoughts and memories of all the other orange flavored chocolates I’ve had in the past come immediately to mind, which is a good thing. The real orange kick comes from creme center, which I wasn’t expecting. It is much more orangey than the chocolate! It’s very intense with a very fresh citrus tang to it. I am experiencing not only orange, but I taste grapefruit and lemon notes in it as well.

Overall all I am very, very impressed. Now I am going to have to have two Cadbury Creme Egg stashes, one of the regular and now one of the orange. I hope they bring this one back next year. It’s a delicious twist on a classic favorite.

    I, too, adore those Cadbury easter eggs with the yolk in the middle. I am Jewish, but this big fat egg makes me anticipate Easter every year!

    Wonderful, creative, unique blog!

    The thought of combining citrus with chocolate is genius, and quite unexpected, as genius ideas usually are.

    I too am addicted to Cadbury eggs. I know Easter is near every year when I see the cadbury egg. I also was denied the egg until I discovered them much later in life – early 20s. I loved the orange cadbury too – thanks for the review.

    I lover cadbury eggs but the orange one is gross. Not that I ever like chocolate and orange, but if you do, you may like it.

    I was disapointed by the regular Cadbury eggs this year. Not only are they smaller, but the package of them i got all had a very distinct metalic taste, not sure if that came from the wrapper, and the creme on the inside was dried out and crusty. It was disgusting. I wait all year for THIS! I couldn’t even finish it, and my sister was trying another one out of the package and she totally grossed out. I have been let down by my favorite candy.

    Check out the ‘Creme de la Creme Egg’. This just makes me shiver…

    You fully understand the sexy appeal of the Creme Egg. That’s rare in a world devoid of decent taste. Like you, i also found the same appeal of the original Creme Egg in the orange creme version. It’s a nice break between plain creme eggs to throw in a citrusy one to mix it up, and the bright colors are appealing as well.

    I agree, the ratio of the mini eggs is way off. and i also agree that the orange cadbury eggs are awsome!

    These sound like heaven in a foil wrapper to me. I’m actually salivating, y’all…I need this egg. I was just craving something sour/tart and reminiscing about grapefruit-flavored fruit slices. Oooh, Walgreens, here I come!
