Cadbury Creme Eggs first appeared in stores in 1971 and have been a favoured Easter treat since. Over a third of the stunning 500 million eggs produced annually, according to Cadbury, are exported.
With the iconic treat arriving in stores on January 1, it appears that a Creme Egg is no longer only an Easter delight. For many years, we have indulged in the egg, but have you ever wondered what the infamous gooey centre is actually made of? Many people have questioned what is within, and others have made conjectures on social networking sites like Twitter.
One person asked: “I have a huge problem weighing on my mind: What is the substance in the middle of a Creme Egg called? What is it? A goo?”
Others made light of the possibility that it might be toothpaste or icing, neither of which sound pleasant.
A other person criticised the egg: “I consumed a Cadbury Creme Egg. I had forgotten how much I detested the interior slime. The best Reese’s Eggs are.”
There weren’t many answers to all these queries as perplexed chocolate fans tried to figure out what exactly is inside a Creme Egg
The oozy centre of a Creme Egg, according to Cadbury, is actually formed of fondant.
This is made comprised of sugar, milk, glucose syrup, cocoa butter, inverted sugar syrup, dried whey, vegetable fats, and dried egg white, according to their website.
TikTok user @abbeythefoodscientist shared to her followers what the gooey centre is made of in a video, which answered many people’s questions.
In the short clip which has over 300k views, Abbey dissects a creme egg to reveal the gooey ingredient.
Content creator Abbey writes: “Opening A Cadbury Creme Egg! “The inside is a mixture of sugar, corn syrup, and water or what’s called fondant.”
One follower replied: “Okay I want to go make a massive bowl of it now I know what it is.” A second added: “Am I the only one who doesn’t like the filling?”
That second follower is not alone, as many rank Creme Egg in the lower part of their Cadbury’s favourites. TV presenter Rav Wilding recently tweeted a picture of a Creme Egg, a Fudge, Wispa and a Double Decker out of a Heroes box.
He asked his followers about the order of the chocolate, with many ranking Creme Egg in last place.
One person said: “Wispa, fudge, double decker, then throw the creme egg in the bin.”
A second added: “Throw the wispa and creme egg in bin for a start.”
