I’m sure Cadbury’s Creme Eggs have shrunk.
On Friday I had my first Cadbury’s Creme Egg of the season. I like Creme Eggs and usually I will have eaten one or two (or maybe three 😉 ) by the time Easter comes around. They have been in the shops since just after Christmas (actually I think they were on display before Christmas) but I was so outraged at how early they were on sale that I refused to buy one and then I must have blanked them out of my mind – they were there, but I didn’t see them – until Friday morning when I spotted them in the local shop. There was a basket of them and they were calling my name. At that point I realised that I hadn’t had one at all this year so I bought one. It seemed tiny!
I’m sure they used to be much, much bigger than they are now – I’m sure they used to be at least the size of an average chicken/hen’s egg. I measured it against a small chicken’s egg. This chicken’s egg in the photo weighs 50g (1.7 oz) and according to size charts it is a small egg (medium in the US). It seems we are paying more and more for something that is getting smaller and smaller.
Does anyone else agree that Creme Eggs are shrinking?
A blurry photo again I’m afraid – I really must start wearing my reading glasses when I am trying to take close up photos using my phone!
