Cadbury eggs: the real public enemy #1

Michaelyn loves them, but they are evil.  They are a scourge upon the face of the planet.

“But they taste so good!”

That’s because they’re full of things that will go straight to your ass.  You see, when god was making the world, he decided to make food that’s good for you taste bad and food that’s bad for you taste good.  He did this because he hates you.

Thanks to XKCD for this goodness

Just a friendly reminder.  Look at eating Cadbury eggs as motivation to exercise a little harder or to really take the day of fertility to heart:)

    I need to be well insulated to survive the harsh Canadian winters. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Moar Cadbury eggs!

  • magistramarla

    My hubby wanted a Cadbury egg before the Easter season was past, so I bought a four-pack of them. I’ve eaten one of them. He gets the other three. They are way too sweet for me, and after one, I’m good for another year.
    BTW, I don’t drink soda because it is also way too sweet. Coffee is my vice, and I’m sticking to it.

    I eat them from the moment they come out until they gone, but I have to be cautious and not eat them around men… certain men at least. I figured out in my early 20s that it’s not a good idea to eat them out in public, because there are so many rude men who can’t keep their brains north of their southern hemisphere. It’s really ridiculous too, esp since it forces me to only eat them in the privacy of my own home. Never was thinking about what they were thinking, until they more than once said something lude. I was only thinking about how good they are.

    I’m doing Weight Watchers, succeeding at it, and managed to talk myself out of eating ANY Cadbury eggs this year. It’s a first. I half-expected thunder, lightning, and bits of sky falling down this morning.

    Of course, there’s always those massive bars of Dairy Milk chocolate in the grocery store, right across the aisle from the Lean Cuisine. Some day my resolve will crumble…

  • G.Shelley

    Luckily for me, I never put weight on, so I don’t have that problem and they are too sickly sweet for everyone else in the house (though they can eat the mini ones).
    I usually manage to limit myself to one a day when they are in the house, but that’s the best I can do, if they are there, I can’t not eat one all day

    I don’t know if they exist in the US, but the UK we can get bags of mini Cadbury’s Creme Eggs. They are the absolute perfect ratio of chocolate to filling.

  • danielmchugh

    I’ve never seen bags of the minis, but I’ve seen plastic trays of them in dozens. They’re not worth it the way they’re priced here; the big eggs are a better deal. It’s also a lot easier to stop at eating just one of the bigger eggs rather than downing the things like cream-filled chocolate popcorn. Yum… instant good mood wrapped in foil. Creme Eggs almost make up for having to listen to the bloody Catholics across the street going at it all weekend.

    G.Shelley, I hate you!

    I only have to look at these things to put weight on. Trouble is, they are soooooo nice and scrummy! I can eat a 6 pack in one easy go, so I don’t buy them at all. It’s the only way, otherwise I’ll just be a big fat blob (be quiet in the cheap seats!).

    Cadbury Eggs are the best things. Although I’ve only eaten two this year, mainly just from apathy. I kept one in my office drawer for almost a year so I could enjoy it in the non-Easter season. Was still delicious.

  • Carol Eberhard

    I can’t do Cadbury eggs…but, Peeps…I can eat them by the boxful!

    • neatospiderplant

      I bought the last box of them at Walmart today! I was told I have to try making smores out of them so I will.

    Focusing solely on the sugar is misleading. Cadbury eggs also contain substantial amounts of fat, while sodas do not. According to the manufacturer’s site, which verifies the 34 g size and 150 calories, a Cadbury egg contains 21 g sugar and 6 g fat
    According to the Coca Cola site, a 20 oz bottle of Coca Cola contains 240 calories, with 65 g sugar and 0 g fat.
    And then there’s this: Wikipedia sez

    During an interview on the April 4th, 2007 episode of Late Night with Conan O’ Brien, actor B. J. Novak drew attention to the fact that American market Cadbury Creme Eggs had decreased in size. American Creme Eggs now weigh 34g and contain 150 calories. Before 2006, the eggs marketed by Hershey were identical to the UK version, weighing 39g and containing 180 calories.
    In 2010, the Canadian market version of the Cadbury Creme Egg was reduced in size to match the 34g United States version.

    I like Cadbury scheme eggs with green yolk in the fondant. For halloween, I get them for 24 cents apiece after Halloween. Nom Nom Nom…
