    Put this here cause couldn't figure another place to put it.

    Since they hit the market, I was hooked.
    Then they came out with a Caramel one. Bliss...

    The wife works at a restaurant supply company and gets a discount,
    so she brings home a packet of each for me when they come out.

    Good thing they are hard to find after Easter. Keeps me fit...:eek:

    Anyone else enjoy them ? :rolleyes:

    The first time I remember having a Cadbury, (I've been saying Cadberry. :rolleyes:), chocolate was from my fifth grade class Easter party. I won the drawing for the 9" chocolate Easter bunny. Wow!!!

    That was great until I remembered I couldn't take it home. :eek: My father didn't believe in celibrating fantasy holidays. :( So I tried to eat the whole thing on my three mile walk from school to home. :confused: I didn't get through the whole thing, and it was the first and only time I tried that. I was sick for a couple of days. :oops:

    Yes the caramel egg is BLISS! :D
    Keep an eye open .....CVS usually has a 2 for 1 sale close to Easter time. Check near the register.

    I love the big caramel eggs best of all because they have so much caramel...the little ones are good but just aren't drenched in caramel like the big ones! :)

    Look out Babs! o_O Those pounds will sneak up on you before you get to nibble on the first one. Sometimes just thinking about those 'Oh so simple of pleasures' can put a couple of pounds on the hips.:eek: :D

    We enjoy Easter, but can't have the candy. We are both Diabetic II. We eat just one and we feel tingling in our feet and mouth and our bg test will soar.

    My Honey says he doesn't mind a few extra pounds on my hips @Ina I. Wonder ;) And since I have my Elliptical exercise machine...that pound or two will come off in no time at all. :p

    Ok, @Babs Hunt , way (weigh) to go. :rolleyes: My hubby was the same, he was always trying to get me to eat. Just about the time I began to feel like it was dieting time again was he would make sure to tell me, "Don't start dieting on my account. You always get lost in the covers." :D

    Yay! Spotted Cadbury caramel eggs at Walgreens, so I grabbed a few. They sell fast. I ate just one...........wow, I'd forgotten how rich & yummy they are. Put the others in the frig. Also got a few Russell Stover maple crème eggs. Good, but nothing beats the Cadbury caramel with that oozing cream. :D

    Cadbury's original factory is not far from where I live in the UK and the creme eggs have been on sale for a few months now, in fact I bought one of the larger Easter egg versions with me for Lisa, who loves all things chocolate, they are just too sweet for me nowadays though.....

    I've never been a fan (except when I was a child) of cadbury eggs or cadbury chocolate generally (except Bornville dark chocolate) because it's Milk chocolate and I prefer dark chocolate..with a high cocoa content. However the Cadbury chocolate that was made for almost 200 years in the Uk has been changed out of all recognition recently..both taste and texture. It's now waaaayyy too sweet and sickly....someone likened it here to ''American chocolate''



    here's the history of Cadbury...

    Recently standing in line to pay for my purchases
    at the local market and spied these.

    Thought about just leaving my cart and buying the whole box.

    If I would have been alone, might have.

    Settled for 2 in the cart when she wasn't looking.:rolleyes:

    I am the same @Holly Saunders my favourite even as a child was Bournville chocolate with roasted almonds, the perfect combination to me, but I haven't seen it since then though I haven't looked that hard........... We sold it in my fathers corner shop, and I used to purloin the odd bar when no one was looking ;)

    Lol @Holly Saunders yes that's surprising, I have bought Cadbury's chocolate in India in the past, but because of the high temperatures there, it has special additives to prevent it from melting. These additives alter the taste and give it an odd gritty texture, so I doubt I will try and buy any when next there. ;)

    I'm not a fan of dark or milk chocolate too much but I've noticed that almost every type of candy bar has a dark chocolate version and I especially dislike that so have to check before I buy a Reese's Peanut Butter cup that it's not the dark chocolate version.

    I like caramel as a filling but absolutely despise that yellow cream type filling...or is it white?

    So pleased you mentioned that - chocolate 'isn't' the same as it was, has an artificial taste now, well to me it does :rolleyes:

    Do you partake of sugar-free candy? My wife does frequently, not being diabetic, but rather low/no carb. She chooses the type of sweetener used rather carefully, though.
