Is it just me or have creme eggs got a lot smaller?

Far smaller! I remember (long time ago now!) when I was a young lad and you could buy six creme eggs in a plastic container with a cardboard top. The eggs contained within were the same size as standard hens eggs. I don't subscribe to the theory that they have only got smaller because we have got bigger - utter rubbish!

EXACTLY, I remember the boxes too and the fact that they were the size of normal eggs. Now they are more like sparrow eggs.

I'm pretty sure we've been ripped off on lots of other chocolate sweets as well.

However on another site they recently got this.

Thank you for your recent enquiry.

We are pleased to report that the size of the Cadbury Creme Egg has not in fact
changed for the past 10 years, and we have no plans at present to alter the size
in any way.

We are always very conscious of the need to maintain quality and offer good
value for money, particularly in a very competitive market place. We believe
that even with the cost of raw materials constantly increasing i.e. cocoa, milk
and sugar that the Cadbury's Creme Egg is marketed at a very competitive price.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us and express your concern in this
matter and we hope we have answered your question to your satisfaction.

Regards

I'm sure you are wrong about this. I think they were about the size of an ostrich egg when I was a boy! :giggle:

Rest of lies


Haha! I wrote to Cadburys a couple of years ago when my mate's girlf poured scorn on me for suggesting the size had changed - I will have my revenge! Anyhoo, I received *exactly* the same reply - methinks there is a coverup afoot...

Well, it's more than 10 years since I was a kid and they are smaller now than then :)

Maybe someone should write to Cadburys and ask when the size changed :whistling:

yummy

I bought 4 for £1 at Home Bargains - a much better deal on a sensible volume purchase.
#18
When I was in Sainsburys yesterday there was a special offer - 2 boxes of 12 for £6.00.
#19
Buy after Easter and you can usually get them for 10p each. That is when I REALLY lay into them LOL
It is true that they are smaller than when I wuz a kid. They do that to, rather sneakily, make stealth price increases. I'm sure that bags of Walkers crisps are also lighter than they used to be. CCEs were twice the size and half the price when I went to school. Now they are like bantams eggs.

last year someone posted a home made version on the internet and then placed it on ebay.

it was a cadburys creme egg easter egg ( normally empty chocolate egg with 2 creme eggs in the box)

the chap got 2 boxes of creme eggs, ate 1 box and then used the other box to make the large creme egg.

i will try and hunt it down.

thats a good idea. do you know i never thought of making own duh!! i go to a sugarcraft shop reguarly as used to do cakes and they sell egg moulds so you could actually put the creme into a bowl and melt the chocolate egg remains, put it in the mould, wait for it to set then transfer the creme into the egg before you put the two edges together. dont think i would do one quite that big though or will need a few visits to dentist and extra gym time lol
thanks 4 that
