People only just discovering what the filling inside a Cadbury's Creme Egg is

People only just discovering what the filling inside a Cadbury's Creme Egg is

It's a very Good Friday to eat a Cadbury's Creme Egg, but what actually goes in them?

A very happy Good Friday to you all, or if you're reading this on some other day, then I hope you're having fun on that one too.

It's time for the Easter weekend, which is basically a free license to lie about on the sofa and scoff as many Cadbury's Creme Eggs as your heart desires.

We love those little chocolate-shelled eggs filled with some sort of sugary goo inside, especially as after Easter is done and dusted they can be a little bit tricky to get your hands on.

They're one of the most iconic treats in the UK and Cadbury's knows it, putting the things at the heart of a number of competitions where people can win prizes if they find the right egg.

Even if they've changed the recipe we still love Creme Eggs, but there are plenty who don't really know what the stuff inside that chocolatey shell is.

That goo inside a Crème Egg is no mystery, but many have been surprised to learn the answer.

According to Cadbury's, that goo at the centre of a Creme Egg is officially something called fondant, but what Easter egg munchers really want to know is what that actually means.

Luckily the confectioner has revealed all, explaining that in that fondant is sugar, milk, glucose syrup, cocoa butter, inverted sugar syrup, dried whey, vegetable fats and dried egg whites.

There you go, there is actually a bit of real egg inside a Creme Egg and it all mixes together to form a lovely gooey mixture which vaguely resembles an egg white and yolk.

It turns out that a lot of people didn't actually know what was inside, as on a video from TikToker @abbeythefoodscientist cracking open a Creme Egg there were plenty of commenters who were surprised to learn what was on the inside.

Some people said they'd thought it was nougat inside the egg, while others assumed it was icing, while someone else said they were convinced it was 'coloured caramel'.

That goo inside the Crème Egg is fondant, and it does actually contain a bit of actual egg in the recipe mix.

Now they know what's inside people are eager to mix it for themselves and see the results, with one person saying they 'want to go make a massive bowl of it now'.

Of course if you're not a fan of the regular filling then Cadbury's have done ones in the past which have been stuffed full of chocolate instead of the usual fondant mix.

On top of that there are plenty of creative bakers who've found that the humble Creme Egg makes for a very good ingredient.

Creme Egg brownies are an absolute classic, albeit the sort of thing that would probably give your dentist conniptions if you told them what you'd been eating.

If brownies don't float your boat then perhaps you'd prefer Creme Egg croissants or the incredibly sugary 'Creme Egg Scotch Egg', which involves rolling one of Cadbury's finest in fudge brownie before coating with little Dairy Milk shavings.

None of this is particularly healthy, but it's all incredibly delicious.
