A Cadbury Crème Egg McFlurry Exists

Every so often, we come across of piece of not-news that is still jaw-dropping enough that we feel compelled to share it with the other five readers who haven’t heard of it yet. In today’s edition of Slowpoke!Foodbeast, we give you: The Cadbury Crème Egg McFlurry.

First introduced in New Brunswick (i.e., somewhere in Canada) in 1997, the gooey fondant and chocolate swirled concoction is usually available in most Canadian, British and Irish McDonald’s locations around Easter, just like its namesake – but of course not in America, because Americans can’t have nice things. Other noteworthy international McFlurries detailed in a recent Web Urbanist round-up include the stinky Durian Crunch in Singapore, the minty Nestle After Eight in the UK and the malty Milo Supreme in Malaysia, all of which begs the question why McDonald’s USA seems to hate us so much.

What do you say, Mickey D’s, how about you just give us a Nutella McFlurry (which, believe it or not, actually doesn’t exist yet) and we call it even?

The poor choice of Cadbury product in the US was always
frustrating to me so after a bit of digging I found out the reason. Basically, the reason why the USA can’t have
all the Cadbury goodies that Canada, UK and Australia have is purely because of
an ill-thought out contract signed 25 years ago between Cadbury and Hershey. This contract gave Hershey complete control
over the manufacture and distribution of Cadbury chocolate in the USA. Providing Hershey maintains the agreed
minimum inventory level as stated on that contract, they have absolutely no
incentive whatsoever in introducing a wider range of Cadbury products. Cadbury are a rival company – why would
Hershey go out of their way to expand the range when they can push their own
brand instead?

So that’s why. Well, I just order my “exotic” Cadbury’s bulk through Amazon.uk. I got into the habit of going there when I got sick of waiting for SF & fantasy books written by UK authors to make it across the pond. Time to reorder Flake bars!
