There’s nothing that quite says ‘ah, Easter’ than demolishing a six pack of Creme Eggs from the comfort of your (freshly spring-cleaned) sofa whilst glorious sunshine pours in through the window one moment and changes to torrential downpour the next. So we were pretty buzzed to learn that there were a massive THREE Creme Egg launches hitting the food scene in 2021.
Whilst the Cadbury eggs themselves have been available in shops since, well… probably Boxing Day, there are a few other ways you can get your chocolate fondant hit.
First up – McDonald’s have brought back their infamous limited edition Creme Egg McFlurry. It launches in restaurants from Wednesday 24th March and will be available for a short period, until just after the Easter weekend. You can pick it up for £1.39, or choose the mini version for 99p.
If you’re unfamiliar with the heavenly dessert, it’s described by McDonald’s as: “Smooth vanilla soft serve blended with pieces of milk chocolate then swirled together with the delicious flavour of sweet Cadbury Creme Egg”. Delish.
Next up is Kripsy Kreme’s Egg-Splosion doughnut which is part of their new Easter range. Whilst not strictly endorsed by Cadbury, the dougnut gives a definite nod to the Creme Egg and is “filled with a fondant yolk, dipped in chocolate flavour coating and drizzled with white and yellow icing.”
The Egg-Splosion is now available, alongside other new seasonal doughnuts such as Egg-Streme Berry Pop and Cracking Honeycomb Crunch, from Krispy Kreme cabinets in supermarkets and service stations, as well as direct through the website.
And the final Creme Egg launch for 2021? Well beer of course. Cadbury teamed up with Goose Island Beer Company to create a drink that is a “Blend of malted barley, oats, wheat and milk sugar” which provides “a deliciously rich and creme-y texture, with cacao nibs and vanilla beans”.
Sadly the limited edition beer has sold out not once, but twice. There’s not currently plans to re-stock, but you can find out more here.
We’ll take one of each please.
