Cadbury Creme Eggs have long been a favourite among confectionary fans – but only now are people realising what the egg’s creamy centre consists of. 

According to Cadbury, since landing on shelves for the first time in 1971, the chocolate giant produces an incredible 500 million eggs per year – with over a third for export.

To put that into context, the company says that if you laid all the Creme Eggs made in a year from end to end, it would stretch from Birmingham, England, to Sydney, Australia.

If you stacked them on top of each other, they’d be 10 times higher than Everest. That’s a whole lot of chocolatey goodness.

Originally just an Easter treat, Creme Eggs are now available between January and April.

However, despite enjoying them for several decades, consumers have only just learned what the filling actually is.

The ingredients have long been the subject of speculation, with one person suggesting that it could be frosting or even toothpaste in the middle.

One person wrote on Twitter: “I have a huge problem weighing on my mind: What is the substance in the middle of a Creme Egg called?

“What is it? A goo?”

Another person, who clearly isn’t a fan, said: “Ate a Cadbury Creme Egg.

“Forgot how much I hated the slime on the inside. Reese’s Eggs are superior.”

Among all the questions, there were few answers, as sweet-toothed fans took to finding out once and for all what the egg’s ‘yolk’ actually is.

Cadbury does actually provide the answer on its website, stating that the gooey centre is fondant made up of sugar, milk, glucose syrup, cocoa butter, inverted sugar syrup, dried whey, vegetable fats and dried egg white.

Paprika extract provides the yellow colouring which imitates the egg’s yolk.

TikTok user @abbeythefoodscientist recently shared a video with her followers – watched over 300,000 times – in which she dissects a Creme Egg and answers the question posed by troubled Creme Egg lovers.

Alongside the video, she wrote: “Opening a Cadbury Creme Egg!

“The inside is a mixture of sugar, corn syrup and water, or what’s called fondant!”

In the comments, one person wrote: “OK, I want to go make a massive bowl of it now I know what it is.”

A second added: “Am I the only one who doesn’t like the filling?”

According to a poll conducted by former Crimewatch presenter Rav Wilding, 45, on Twitter, many agree that Cadbury has better products than the Creme Egg.

He tweeted out a picture of a Creme Egg, a Fudge, a Wispa and a Double Decker from a box of Heroes and asked his followers to order the chocolates.

Many put the Creme Egg at the bottom of their list.

One person said: “Fudge, Wispa, Double Decker, then burn the creme egg in the incinerator.”

A second added: “Throw the Wispa and Creme Egg in the bin for a start.”

“I’d be leaving the Creme Egg, but the rest are good in any order,” wrote a third.
