not often I get the opportunity to sample a candy with a comparison.
Most of the time when I write a review, it's just me and whatever
candy I'm reviewing, however today is a little different. Today
I'm lucky enough to have a regular Cadbury Crème Egg
as well. So I will not only talk about the merits (or lack of)
of the Mini Cadbury Crème Egg, I'll also talk about why
it's different than it's older brother.
The first difference
between these eggs and the larger egg that I want to discuss
is ratio. The normal Cadbury Crème egg is fairly sweet;
this is because the most prevalent ingredient is the white and
yellow cream in the centre. The mini eggs on the other hand
have an outer shell that is almost as thick as the regular eggs,
and therefore have less room for so much cream. This means if
you like the chocolate part of the Crème Egg most of
all, this might be the treat for you.
The second difference
worth discussing is the comfort in eating it. The normal Crème
Egg doesn't fit in your mouth very well and requires several
bites, which can be a little messy. The mini eggs are much smaller,
and might even be a little too small for a comfortable bite.
I could actually go for an egg that’s somewhere in the
middle of both of these eggs.
The quality of both
of these eggs is fantastic. The cream is fun, and very sweet.
The chocolate is smooth and melts on your fingers in the perfect
way. While I think I still prefer the regular sized Crème
Eggs, I think if you find the large eggs too sweet, these might
be just the thing for you.
