Rather than buy the eggs individually, they come packed in a real egg carton holding four eggs. Also included are two tiny spoons so you can scoop out the delicious fluffy centre. Each egg has 195 calories.
I don’t normally buy Crème Eggs because you really have to eat them in one go. Instead I prefer splitting up my chocolate treats into smaller sections (less calories that way). However, I couldn’t resist these Egg 'n' Spoons. It must be the novelty factor.
Each pack consists of the outer cardboard sleeve with all the nutritional details. Inside this is a purple cardboard egg carton housing the four individually wrapped eggs. Wedged in between the eggs are two tiny purple spoons, just the right size to dip into the eggs.
My question is ‘with 4 eggs, why only 2 spoons?’ The front of the box has the message: ‘A fluffy treat to share and enjoy…’. Perhaps you’re supposed to share spoons?!?
Each egg has a star shape etched around the top and judging by the picture on the front, this should neatly come off in one piece. I wasn’t sure how that would work out, but it does come off surprisingly easily. Just apply a little pressure at the top, pull, and off it comes, exposing the fluffy white centre.
The inside isn’t like the centre of a crème egg, ie it’s not runny. It has more of the consistency of mousse and has a delicious vanilla flavour. It's also a lot easier to eat than a Crème Egg. Their storage carton means you don’t have to worry about them getting squashed and oozing all over the inside of your bag!
I found these in a branch of Waitrose having hunted high and low (including Superdrug where I first heard they were sold). I’m sure they’ll be more widely available now they've started advertising on TV.
