These Creme-Filled Oreo Eggs Will Be Sold In The U.S. After All

The internet has been buzzing over the past week or so due to the discovery of Oreo Cadbury Creme Eggs. These chocolate shelled, Oreo creme-filled treats were something that everyone in the United States wanted — but weren’t able to get — as these treats were revealed to only be available in the U.K. and Canada.

It turns out that the U.S. will be getting Oreo creme-filled eggs after all. However, they won’t be made by Cadbury.

According to Thrillist, Oreo confirmed that their brand will be making an Oreo-creme filled chocolate egg. Called the Oreo Egg, this product will be made completely independently from Cadbury, and won’t use Cadbury’s signature chocolate or be a Cadbury product.

The Oreo Egg may not be from Cadbury, but I’m sure it will be just as tasty regardless. We’ll be able to find out for ourselves in mid-February, when these treats make it to the United States.

We’re a little sad that we won’t be getting the Cadbury version for now, but are looking forward to trying Oreo’s unique version of the UK classic.

Food Surgeon Eerily Implanted A Cadbury Creme Egg Into A Marshmallow Peep [WATCH]

I’ll say it here, expect some big things from the future of YouTube’s greatest new food hero The Food Surgeon. Today he just revealed his latest experiment, a Peep Laparotomy using a Cadbury Creme egg and a Marshmallow Peep.

If you’re wondering “why this guy doing this shit?” or “yo this sounds like it’s gonna make me feel weird,” then you are expressing the same sentiment that makes The Food Surgeon‘s videos so immensely captivating. If you haven’t seen his Kit Kat-into-a-3 Musketeers bar operation, or the valiant work he put extracting seeds from a Strawberry, then you have a lot of Internet to catch up on.

Until then, watch the most squeamish yet beautiful operation to date:

Cadbury Creme Egg in Hole Pound Cake Toast

Cadbury Creme Egg In Hole Toast

With Easter right around the corner, candy is everywhere. More specifically, Cadbury Creme Eggs are everywhere, and it’s a beautiful reality. But instead of opting for the straight-out-of-the-wrapper eating tactic this year, we advise you take the egg-in-hole toast route.

Crazy? Absolutely. Genius? 100%. Serious Eats came up with this festive dish that features a melty Cadbury Crème Egg placed right inside a slice of pound cake, making for the best (and easiest) Easter dessert – ever. I highly recommend you still take advantage of the chocolate abundance, and make this breakfast gone wild.

To create this deliciousness, all you have to do is cut a hole in a slice of thick pound cake, place half a Cadbury Creme Egg inside and heat on a butter-laden griddle. It’s a masterpiece, really.

A Cadbury Crème Egg McFlurry Exists

cadburymcflurry

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?

Apparently Cadbury Crème Eggs Contain Traces of Beaver Butts

Halt! Put down that leftover Easter candy. You might want to read this first.

Before today, the most of your worries were whether or not ants managed to dig their way into your colorful plastic eggs, but it turns out the most terrifying part of one popular Easter treat actually comes from within.

According to the Huffington Post, Cadbury Crème Eggs contain an artificial sweetener called castoreum, commonly listed as “natural flavoring” in vanilla and raspberry-flavored treats and which is derived from, yes, the anal gland excretions of beavers.

Except a look on the castoreum Wikipedia page says the anal glands and castor glands are separate and that castoreum is actually used along with beaver urine to mark territory, so I’m not really sure which to believe.

But if I had to choose, I think I’d much rather have the latter. I mean, that’s like choosing between eating poop and drinking pee right? And it only makes sense to pick  . . . pee . . . right?

World’s Smallest Cadbury Creme Egg?

Taken as a photo for the month of April of her new calendar, Jessica of I’m So Tiny shows the world what it looks like to break into a Creme Egg that’s several times smaller than a gum drop. Easter was yesterday, but it’s still April, and you really can’t have too many chocolate creme eggs, can you?
