AIBU to wonder what the actual fuck they have done to creme eggs?

I mean, first world problems and all that, but why have they ruined creme eggs? Just had one and the chocolate was rank (DH said this was a big thing a few years ago that Cadbury changed the chocolate to make it cheaper and it doesn't taste like dairy milk any more but this clearly passed me by) and the filling was... kinda chewy. I mean, is nothing sacred? Fucking Brexit fucking up our creme eggs.

Ritter Rum & Raisin is the best chocolate ever invented. I would crawl over new extra-knobbly Weetabix to get to some.

They seem to taste worse every year. I see them in tesco and my brain makes me buy them coz remembers how utterly divine they once were. Get home, open one and my tastebuds are so so disappointed - like thought this was supposed to be a CADBURY'S CREME EGG FFS! The reality now a tasteless sticky horrid pretender. So pissed off with this year's one, actually. It broke my tooth hmm

I didn't know the choc was so hard! Wow.

Yep. I bit down hard into it and a big chunk of my (heavily filled back in the day) actual tooth somehow embedded itself in the sticky gritty gunk inside. No way would that have happened with old style creme eggs with their proper runny yummy goo.

Whoever mentioned smarties orange mini eggs up the thread is correct - they are lush. I don't even like smarties!
