There's a Sneaky Way To Tell If a Creme Egg Is White WITHOUT Opening The Wrapper

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, you'll know about Cadbury's new limited edition white Creme Eggs that everybody is going crazy about.

And although the white chocolate eggs alone look DIVINE, there's something more to them.

Each white egg comes with the chance to win up to €10,000.

The limited edition Creme Eggs are disguised as regular creme eggs, and up until now everyone was under the impression that you would have to open the wrapper to find out if the egg is milk chocolate or white chocolate.

However, there is a very cheeky way to check if a Creme Egg is white WITHOUT opening the wrapper.

According to The Mirror, it is a legal requirement for food companies to label all ingredients on the product's packaging.

And conveniently, the ingredients for white chocolate and milk chocolate are slightly different.


Cadbury's told the publication: "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."

Therefore, the ingredients for a milk chocolate Creme Egg will state the words 'milk chocolate' while there will be an indication that the chocolate on the limited edition eggs is white.

You're welcome.
