Cadbury Mini Eggs

Cadbury Mini Eggs

A Once-A-Year Milk Chocolate Treat

What can I say about Cadbury Mini Eggs except that they are, in my opinion, the best chocolate treat ever made? They are a little bit of chocolate heaven in a hard sugar shell. For a true chocoholic like me, I don’t make that statement lightly.  

I wait all year for these Cadbury Mini Eggs. There’s a similar treat at Christmas time, but I think the eggs are better. I don’t know why, since they are basically the same candy expect for the shell colors, but the mini eggs just taste better. I’m weird, I know. I wish Cadbury Mini Eggs were available year-round and not just at Easter and Christmas, but it’s probably better that they aren’t. If they were, I’d gain a lot of weight.

I’m not talking about the Cadbury Crème Eggs that are plentiful this time of year. I’m not a big fan of those. The Cadbury Mini Eggs, well, that’s another story. The Cadbury Mini Eggs are solid milk chocolate nuggets shaped like eggs, with a hard sugar shell. They start appearing on store shelves right after Valentine’s Day, and they become harder to find the closer it gets to Easter. At least in my area they do. I usually buy several bags over the course of the season. The bags last longer than they used to, as I can only eat a couple at a time these days. I’m lactose-intolerant, and since they are milk chocolate, well, I won’t get into that.

Cadbury Mini Eggs originated at the Cadbury Company, a United Kingdom candy company. In the United States, Hershey’s owns the rights to produce and distribute Cadbury chocolates.
