People only just realising what the filling inside a Cadbury's Creme Egg is

People have just realised what the filling inside a Cadbury's Creme Egg is and the internet can't keep calm.

A TikTok user just revealed the secret behind what the creamy gooey centre is made up of, putting an end to the speculations.

Find out for yourself in the vid below:



A Cadbury's Creme Egg was originally named Fry's Creme Egg, and was first produced by the British chocolatier Fry's in 1963 before it was renamed by Cadbury in 1971.

It is a chocolate confection produced in the shape of an egg and has long been favoured as an Easter treat.

Though, due to its popularity, the Creme Egg has started making its way into the UK stores from 1 January.

We have been indulging in the egg for many years, but have you ever considered what the famous gooey centre is actually made of?


Many people have questioned what's in there, with some taking to social media platforms such as Twitter to speculate.

One person asked: "I have a huge problem weighing on my mind: What is the substance in the middle of a Creme Egg called? What is it? A goo?"

Others joked it could be frosting or even toothpaste - which certainly doesn't sound nice.

Another was critical of the egg: "Ate a Cadbury Creme Egg. Forgot how much I hated the slime on the inside. Reese’s Eggs are superior."

With all these questions, there wasn't many answers, as confused chocolate lovers tried to find out what is actually inside a Creme Egg.

Well, Cadbury says the gooey centre that makes up a Creme Egg is actually made of fondant.

According to their website, this comprises of sugar, milk, glucose syrup, cocoa butter, inverted sugar syrup, dried whey, vegetable fats and dried egg white.

In the short clip which has over 300k views, Abbey dissects a creme egg to reveal the gooey ingredient.

Content creator Abbey writes: "Opening A Cadbury Creme Egg!


"The inside is a mixture of sugar, corn syrup, and water or what’s called fondant."

One follower replied: "Okay I want to go make a massive bowl of it now I know what it is."

A second added: "Am I the only one who doesn’t like the filling?"

That second follower is not alone, as many rank Creme Egg in the lower part of their Cadbury's favourites.

Last year, TV presenter Rav Wilding tweeted a picture of a Creme Egg, a Fudge, Wispa and a Double Decker out of a Heroes box.

He asked his followers about the order of the chocolate, with many ranking Creme Egg in last place.

One person said: "Wispa, fudge, double decker, then throw the creme egg in the bin."

A second added: "Throw the wispa and creme egg in bin for a start."
