10 Cadbury’s Creme Egg Facts You Will Want to Gobble Up

 Happy Easter, one and all. I hope the Easter Bunny has been good to you!

 Yesterday we had a family trip to Cadbury World, Bourneville, near Birmingham. An excellent Easter day out. My favourite bit of Cadbury’s is the chocolate, in particularly the Cadbury’s Crème Egg. So, I thought I would share some facts about them.

  1. Mount Everest

If you were to stack all the Creme Eggs made each year on top of each other, the pile would be ten times the size of Mount Everest.

  1. Creme Egg World Record

Jamie Jiggs from Lancashire, England, holds the world record for eating a single Creme Egg in 8.65 seconds.

  1. Creme Egg Size

Many people, especially in the UK, often complain the Cadbury’s Creme Egg is smaller every year. When in actual fact, British Creme Eggs are now 1g heavier than they were in 1977, as they currently weigh 40g.

However, it is bad news for US customers, as American Creme Eggs are now 34g, which means they are 5g lighter than they were in 2005.

  1. Creme Egg Sales

Cadbury’s make approximately £200 million per year in Creme Egg sales in the UK alone, which is over 3 a year per citizen.

  1. Elephant

600,000 Creme Eggs are made in 12 hours at the Cadbury factory, which is three times heavier than an elephant.

  1. The First Creme Eggs

The first filled eggs were born in 1923 by the Cadbury Brothers, but the Creme Eggs we know and love today were introduced to stores in 1963, but were initially known as Fry’s Creme Eggs. It wasn’t until 1971 that they renamed them “Cadbury’s Creme Egg”.

  1. 26 Varieties

As if the original Creme Egg isn’t amazing enough, Cadbury’s has offered another 25 varieties of this egg-filled favourite over the years, including Caramel Eggs, Jaffa Eggs, Orange Creme Eggs and more.

  1. Green

The colour green once featured in the Creme Egg packaging, but was replaced by blue early in the 21st century. The colour green is only present in the US packaging.

  1. Daily Sugar

We all love a good Creme Egg between New Year and Easter, but it appears the delicious chocolate eggs don’t love our waistlines or teeth as much, as each Creme Egg is 180 calories and is 28.8% of our guideline daily amount of sugar. They taste good, though!

  1. They Can Be Deep Fried

Just about everything is better when it’s deep-fried. The same is true for Cadbury Creme Eggs; some people have mastered the art of deep frying them for a decadent dessert. New York City restaurant Salt and Battery deep fries them around Easter.

Happiness is…a Cadbury’s Crème Egg


Thanks once again to autocorrect, my sister’s kids were expecting the Easter Rabbi on Easter Sunday.

Where does the Easter Bunny go when he needs a new tail? To a re-tail store!

Why did the Easter egg hide? Because he was a little chicken!

What happened to the egg when he was tickled too much? He cracked up.


Love is…giving someone your Cadbury’s Crème Egg.
