Cadbury Oreo Eggs Are A Thing, But Only If You Live In The Right Country
Stop whatever you're doing, because two of your favorite childhood treats are combining forces to create the most delicious explosion of taste your mouth will ever experience: Cadbury Oreo Eggs exist. Go on. I'll wait while you gently weep. Because this? Is totally, totally worth it. There's just one problem: You might not be able to get a hold of them, depending on where you live.
Oreo-infused Cadbury products have actually existed for some time; as Cadbury explains in a statement provided to Bustle by email, special Easter products featuring the black-and-white sandwich cookie already exist, including the Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Shell Egg and the Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Easter Egg Sharing Bag. The latest launch for the Oreo Easter collection, though, consists of a heavenly chocolate egg filled with a vanilla mousse and Oreo cookie filling that you can eat with a spoon. As a result, it is perhaps unsurprising that the egg's official name is the Cadbury Dairy Milk Egg 'n' Spoon Oreo.
Surprisingly, these eggs aren't technically a part of the Cadbury Creme Egg range; I have a feeling those of us in the United States just have a tendency to want to call all egg-shaped candies made by Cadbury "Creme Eggs," because for many of us, the Creme Eggs are the only exposure we've ever had to the company's treats. Regardless, though, Cadbury is committed to satisfying our sweet tooth in new and inventive ways. "We are always innovating our product ranges and there are lots of exciting things to come from the Cadbury brand this year and beyond," the company says in a statement provided to Bustle.
Here's the brand new Egg 'n' Spoon option:
And here's one of the older, pre-existing Oreo Eggs:
Now, before you get too excited about sinking your teeth into these beauties, there's one disappointing catch: The Oreo Eggs aren't sold in the United States. They're primarily available in the UK, although there also appears to be a version that is available in Canada (because apparently, all good things — the Oreo egg, Ryan Gosling — come from Canada), according to the Instagram account Junk Food Banter. It's left me seriously considering a move, or at the very least, an extended vacation.
Cadbury eggs have been around for decades, with the first variation as we know them making its debut in 1970. But truthfully, the beginning of the story starts much earlier. John Cadbury opened his store back in 1824, meaning that our beloved Cadbury eggs have been nearly 200 years in the making! The real first Cadbury Easter egg was made in 1875. Back then, the eggs were made with dark chocolate, and they were filled with sugar-coated chocolate drops.
In the years that have passed since, the geniuses at Cadbury have come up with all sorts of delicious flavors, including Caramilk, Orange Creme, Fudgee-O, and Peppermint. Since its inception, the Cadbury Creme Egg has been the go-to sweet treat between the months of January and April, when they're released.
Here's hoping the Oreo Eggs make it to the United States' lineup eventually!
