As many of you will know, Cadbury’s have launched a Willy Wonka style hunt for white Cream eggs, with lucky customers having the chance to win up to £2,000 if they find one.
There are thought to be only 371 White Cadbury’s Creme Eggs dotted about the country. Hidden in the corner of both small shops and huge supermarkets in Britain.
Each of these special eggs come with an individual cash prize including one impressive sum of £2000!
These White Creme Eggs are so rare that the hunt for them have left people desperate to find them but there is one huge catch – Both the while and original versions come in the exact same foil wrapping.
Inevitably, in the frenzy to find these delicious and financially rewarding eggs, impatient consumers have been peeling back the wrappers of hundreds of Creme Eggs to check the color of the chocolate beneath, without having to part with any cash at the checkout!
Unfortunately, this is not a hygienic solution to finding these White Eggs and we have discovered a far easier way – Why not simply check the ingredients?
Like any product, all ingredients are listed on each Cadbury Creme Egg so surely the ingredients would be different on these White Chocolate Eggs?
We investigated further and asked Cadbury who stated, “All white Cadbury Creme Eggs, while wrapped in the same iconic packaging as the classic Creme Egg, will contain nutritional information that is specific to the white chocolate variant. It is a legal requirement for all food manufacturers to display all ingredients on the packaging.”
So, there you have it. If you do not want to splash out 58p for the chance of finding a White Creme Egg (or are not a fan of Creme Eggs in general and just want the chance of winning some cash) instead of opening up the wrapper, just check the ingredients!
And, in case you were wondering, here’s where they supposedly all are:
Independent retailers – 13 white eggs worth £1,000 and 78 worth £100. One egg worth £1,000 will be released somewhere in mainland UK each week, over 13 weeks.
