REVIEW! Cadbury Egg 'n' Spoon

Cadbury Egg 'n' Spoon

Well Easter products are already in the supermarkets so I thought that it would be rude to not start sampling them and I found these Cadbury's Egg 'n' Spoon in Tesco the other night.  It says "new" on the box and I haven't seen them before but apparently these have been around in Europe for a while and I believe that they are sold under the Milka brand.


I love the purple egg box packaging, I just think that it is a great idea and it looks great with the gold and brown foil wrapping on the eggs.  The box contains 4 eggs, around the same size as a Cadbury Creme Egg and 2 small purple spoons and there is even a little holder for these in the centre of the box. 

The eggs are described as milk chocolate, filled with a fluffy milky mousse centre.  Each egg contains 195 calories and the box of 4 cost me £3.99.  The instructions are to peel off the paper, bite off the top and then spoon out the centre using the spoon provided.



The top comes off pretty easy once you bite into it and the spoon is just the right size to get to the delicious filling.  The filling is a lovely smooth, vanilla flavoured mousse and really does taste good.  Once you have spooned this out, you are then left with a lovely chocolate egg.  I did find these quite messy to eat despite the spoon, as you have to hold the egg so it did start to melt on the outside.  This isn't a major issue for me and I suppose you could use an egg cup if you really wanted!

Verdict
The presentation of Cadbury's Egg 'n' Spoon is fantastic, this is a great novelty product and the eggs taste lovely!  I will definitely be buying these again although I must say I don't get the logic behind only having 2 spoons for 4 eggs!

  1. These look absolutely fantastic, I can't wait to try them! I love the packaging and the little spoons. I'm glad Cadbury's has brought these to the UK - what a great novelty chocolate!

  2. These look surprisingly good! I had vowed not to bother with them when I read the press release because they sounded a bit boring...but you've convinced me to give 'em a try. However I think the price is a bit much, it's practically a pound per egg!

  3. Oh my word, these look AMAZING. Sooo have to look out for these, they'd make a perfect Easter pressie too. Bout time we got something cool like this from Cadburys in UK, they're deffiantly excelling themselves on the product line. Thanks so much for the great review, as always Hannah. Loved this! The little spoon is too cute :P

  5. Terry's Chocolate Orange released these a few years ago and they were divine! Looking forward to trying Cadbury's version, though!

  7. £3.99?!! I saw them for £2 today in Asda, there's always a point before Easter when you can buy 3 times as many Creme Eggs (for example) for the same amount of money as you can a few weeks later, you just have to judge your purchase time right. I'm waiting for these to appear (perhaps in Home Bargains) after Easter before I buy them, hopefully they'll be even cheaper... If you think about it, having even 2 spoons is quite wasteful, so if they put four in can you imagine how much plastic would end up at the tip? I'm hoping they are solid enough for reuse at least as toy teaset spoons! At least the outer packaging is biodegradeable.

  8. I would assume there are two spoons in case the buyer decided to SHARE their eggs and not eat them all. Logical explanation.
