Where Can I Find Affordable Cadbury Eggs?

Where can you find affordable Cadbury Eggs? Good luck. The most desired item this time of the year, is the delicious gift from the Universe known as the Cadbury Egg. Comic Gregory Behrendt famously said: "I'd like to wake up inside a giant Cadbury Egg and EAT my way out." Why do they taste so good? What's The Secret Of The Cadbury Egg? According to Huffpost.com, the secret is in the heating: The particular magic of the Cadbury creme egg is that the chocolate shell houses a gooey, runny "yolk" and "albumen." But while there are some real egg whites involved, the creme filling is really just fondant (aka, lots of sugar) dyed with food coloring to look like the insides of an egg. The sugar mixture is simply heated, mixed and cooled until the syrup forms a white creme -- but obsessive and creative bakers know that even one degree difference in the heating and cooling methods can return very different fondants. Many have tried a variety of homemade Cadbury Egg recipes like, Cadbury Creme Egg Stuffed Cookies, Creme Egg Cupcakes and Cadbury Creme Pull Apart Sweet Rolls, just to name a few. But as they are good? How Much Will Spend On Easter? According to the National Retail Federation:  Eighty-one percent of consumers plan to celebrate the holiday and they expect to spend $22.4 billion, the second-highest in NRF and Prosper Insights & Analytics’ Easter survey history. Consumers plan to spend an average of $177.06 per person on top items like candy, food, gifts and clothing this year. Read on for more insights into how consumers are spending on Easter this year. The Search For Affordable Cadbury Eggs Last year at this time, three days before Easter, there were NO Cadbury Eggs to be found with 40 miles of our house in Central Massachusetts. This week, Heidi in line at the supermarket brought four boxes of the regular sized Cadbury Eggs, with 4 eggs in each box. The kid rung and and, said, $42.36 please. WHOA!!!! Of course Heidi tapped the breaks and asked why it was so expensive. Each box of four Cadbury Eggs were over $9 dollars each! We checked and found more affordable Cadbury Eggs. So if you're not desparate you can find on line, the four egg boxes at many outlets, if they still have them for $3.49 to $4.49 each. If you plan to go to an actual store, you may want to try the old fashioned call ahead, and ask them to put aside a few boxes for you. That can still work, if you get lucky. I recommend going big or go home. Amazon is selling the 48 pack for $32.98 with one day shipping, to get it here in time for Easter Sunday! Considering that my wife was charged $9 bucks a for a box of four, the 48 count pack of eggs is a better deal. I just ordered it on Amazon and it should be here tomorrow. Good luck on your search for affordable Cadbury Eggs!
