Cadbury fans rejoice as favourite treat returns in time for Christmas
| Last updated
It's Christmas! Alright, it's just turned December, but that means the Christmas floodgates are now open and it's socially acceptable to put up decorations, listen to Christmas songs and don your range of fine Christmas jumpers.
In addition to being the most wonderful time of the year, it's also one of the most gluttonous as people prepare to tuck into all sorts of treats and feasts for the festive season.
While tucking into the turkey and trimmings is still a few weeks away, this is the time where you've earned the right to treat yourself to something nice after a long and difficult year.
It's the season of mulled wine lovers, Brussels sprouts aficionados and a time to be jolly.
With that in mind, Cadbury fans have plenty to smile about as a fan favourite treat has hit the shelves once again.
We won't keep you in suspense any longer, this delicious Cadbury treat which has fans overjoyed is the beloved white chocolate creme egg.
The limited edition eggs have been swirling around for a few years now and they've returned once more, with food blogger NewFoodsUK spotting them on the shelves at Farmfoods.
They found the white chocolate creme egg in a multipack of two regular creme eggs, two caramel eggs and one solitary white chocolate egg.
Normally seen as an Easter food, (you know, eggs, Easter that sort of thing) the white chocolate creme egg has thankfully returned for Christmas and people are very happy to see it back.
One person said they would 'love these to appear in my Christmas stocking', while another declared that 'all my wishes had come true'.
Someone else wished they could have a white chocolate creme egg with a caramel filling rather than the traditional fondant.
A few traditionalists grumbled that it was too early, or perhaps late, in the year for creme eggs as we're months away from Easter, though the main complaint was that in the multipack of five there was only one white chocolate creme egg.
Creme eggs with white chocolate in them have been pretty rare and valuable over the years, with a Cadbury competition hiding half-and-half eggs worth up to £10,000 around the country.
While this might all be a bit of a ploy to get people to buy more creme eggs, everyone liked doing that anyway and a few managed to pick up some prizes at the same time.
Just spare a thought for the poor lad who bought one of the prize winning eggs and scoffed it without realising he was chomping down on the world's most valuable creme egg.
The really dedicated you might want to follow in the footsteps of another creme egg fan who created a giant egg out of 32 smaller ones.
For the low, low price of actually quite a lot of money you could make the ultimate white chocolate creme egg as a monument to sugary goodness.
