What a place to kick off 'Jim's Easter Mission 2008' than with the most famous symbolic Easter chocolate in the universe - the Cadbury Creme Egg.

For those of you that are unaware of what one is (where have you been lol!!!) the product is in size the same as a standard meduim sized egg and is formed of a generous helping of creme fondant in the centre of a thick Cadbury Dairy Milk shell.

The egg comes in a very nice looking thing foil cover, which is traditionally covered in the famous red, yellow and blue colours. It certainly looks the part in the wrapper but the real treat is when it has been peeled away.

The famous slogan for Cadbury Creme egg is 'How do you eat your's??'...well here's how I ate mine. I left it for a few hours in my fridge...took the egg out and removed about 4 cm from the top of one of the ends. I then ate a large proportion of the fondant but left a small layer all around the chocolate shell inside; I then slowly bit by bit ate my way through the shell, letting eating bite melt in the mouth...a truly wonderful experience.

In terms of taste both components are glorious - the fondant centre somehow avoids being too sickly and has a glorious sweet tasting flavour. Its texture is brilliant as well - its thick and viscous yet smooth on the tastebuds - in a word sensual. The chocolate shell is thick and has that melt on the tongue aspect that Dairy Milk so successfully encompasses.

Overall what a great way to start my Easter reviews. The Cadbury Creme egg is an all time classic and its no wonder why its so popular and adored by the masses. The Creme Egg captures everything an Easter egg should be - fun to eat, pretty to look at and of course glorious to taste. This is going to take some beating in terms of finding a better Easter product. The only aspect that slightly lets the product down is its size...its so tasty you want more..this just leaves us one question!?...Cadbury where is our Super Sized/King Sized Cadbury Creme Egg!
