There is now a way to find a white Creme Egg WITHOUT opening it

You could win a prize!

White Creme Egg

by Anna Sky Hulton |

After the success of last year's limited edition white chocolate Creme Egg, Cadbury's have decided to bring them back for the second year running. Just in case you're not familiar with the new confection, Cadbury's have created a white chocolate version of the classic Creme Egg - but there's more to it than that.

Essentially, it's more limited edition than the normal Creme Egg as there are only a few out there for chocolate-lovers to get their hands on. They're wrapped in exactly the same foil as the original, so it's nigh-on impossible to tell whether you've got a white chocolate Creme Egg, or the original milk chocolate.

However, not only do you get to taste the exquisite mix of fondant and white chocolate, there's also a prize in it for those who discover the rare chocolate.

Of course, there's supposed to be no way of knowing whether you've picked up a milk chocolate Creme Egg or a white chocolate one - but thankfully, a spokesperson for Cadbury's has confirmed that there is actually a way to check without opening them up.

Speaking to The Independent, they said, "All white Cadbury Creme Eggs, whilst 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 we have it!

The ingredients list has a tell-tale clue - unlike the 'milk' chocolate eggs, the limited edition ones say 'white'. Simple really!

Now with this revelation hopefully people will just be carefully checking the ingredients list, rather than unwrapping them.

Both 'normal' and white Creme Eggs are available to buy now until the 21st April. And although not everyone is a fan of this new egg, it seems a lot of people are, with some asking for them to be a permanent fixture. One Twitter user pleaded, 'Can you please just actually bring out the white chocolate creme egg permanently?'

We've got to say, we agree!
