Cadbury’s fessed up after The Sun investigated reports that the chocolate eggs tasted different. They admitted that the traditional Dairy Milk chocolate had been changed to a standard cocoa mix chocolate.
A spokesperson for Kraft said, ‘The Crème Egg has never been called the Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Crème Egg. We never played on the fact that Dairy Milk chocolate was used.’
Understandably, the British public weren’t too thrilled about this. After all, the Crème Egg is only available 3 months of the year, it’s a sacred Easter tradition and now it’s shit.
#CrèmeEggGate was starting a Twitter riot. Pure chocolate anarchy.
If all our trust in chocolate hadn’t already been diminished by this betrayal, we then found out Crème Egg multipacks will now only have 5 eggs instead of 6.
It’s been a long week trying to come to terms with this break up but I don’t think any of us are as heartbroken as singer-songwriter Boo Detch who wrote a song all about it.
Boo Detch told Buzzfeed News, ‘I am notorious in my group for loving Cadbury Crème Eggs – every Easter I tell everyone to raid the shelves at stores so I can have them throughout the year. The video may have been a little melodramatic, but it came from a truthful place.’
‘The Cadbury Crème Egg Song’ is an emotional track, bringing out raw feelings of love and loss.
RIP Crème Egg. Don't worry, you're in a better place now.
