Top left corner has (mountain) x10 and 3x(elephant) yet the text says five-times and more than one, respectively. Wtf. I also find the mt.everest claim to be dubious at best.

Maggie_Luna: Well that was pointless. Thank you for that invigorating graphic.

I dislike those eggs. Never liked them as a child either. So it's just filled with disappointment for me.


You must be fun at parties

AqueousBoy: Ugh.  They're not called oeuf-fondant in all of Canada.  Just Quebec, for fark's sake.


And what's with the accent aigu?

It's good for bacon and aigu.

Has anyone else noticed a difference in the Creme Eggs?  The filling seems gritty and grainy, and the yellow "yolk" is not distinct, but a smear.  I had a couple and they really don't measure up to my memory of them.  That, or I'm just getting old.

While the creme eggs are good, the mini eggs with the hard candy shell are better,

Someone posted that Hershey bought Cadbury, and they aren't imported  Although I cant say there's been any difference, because AFAIK, Hershey or Nestle in America was contracted to make them before the buyout, along with all US branded Cadbury products.  That's the reason why British made Cadbury kicks the ass of American Cadbury, and always has.

Back before the world became smaller, in the 80's, Brit Cadbury was hard to come by in America.  Whenever one of my Brit family came over, they actually had one suitcase dedicated to sweets.

Back when you also weren't charged for bags...

Remember when they had somewhat runny centers? I haven't seen one that did for years.

DRTFA, but is 'they're disgusting' on the list?
 
2013-03-30 04:43:28 PM  
For all that think the eggs are disgusting I'm going to eat another one just for you.

I bet they've changed the formula within the last few decades. Back when I was a kid in the 80s, you'd find candy with more unpronounceable ingredients and partially hydrogenated oils that affected texture. They probably had the yolk thicker than the whites. I remember them being grainy, even back then - if they've been sitting on the shelf for a while, the filling starts to dry out and the sugar probably starts to crystallize.

maram500: ktybear: Forget chocolate eggs. Go for a chocolate fondue

The best mix I've found is 50% milk chocolate and 50% dark

Sides: fresh orange cubes, strawberries, kiwi fruit slices, hard cheddar cheese cubes, quarters of marshmallows, grapes, potato crisps, sultanas, jelly babies, frozen banana slices

Cheese? In chocolate? Eww. Also: How do you get marshmallow quarters? Even with the giant (aka, regular) ones, that is just ridiculous. Just put one on a stick, dunk in chocolately goodness, and consume.


You cut the marshmallows into quarters with scissors. Makes them bite size rather than huge!
And don't knock the cheese cubes until you try it. A strong flavored cheese is best!

Think chocolate cheese cake and you get the idea

If only marshmallows came in small, bit-size "mini" pieces.

I know they do but they taste very different to the big marshmallows. To each their own :)

Surprised no one bit on this one. You left yourself wide open.
