Cadbury Creme Eggs are one of the most beloved candies in the world. I've been eating them since I was a kid, and I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't at the very least like them. There is one solid criticism that does come up regularly with Cadbury Creme Eggs, and that's how overly sweet they are. Even me, someone who adores sweet things can occasionally find them to be a bit too much.

The thing that makes Cadbury Creme Eggs too sweet is the filling, a gooey sugar filled centre that makes some people's teeth hurt just thinking about it. This is where these cookies are different, instead of a thick glob of goo in the centre; these Cadbury Creme Egg Cookies have a thin layer of cream between the chocolate coating and a tasty cookie. Best of all they don't sacrifice the cool yolk centre part of the Cadbury Creme Egg; it's still there in the creme.

The cookie itself is OK; it's not spectacular and doesn't add anything to the treat outside of a crunchy texture. The chocolate is very good, although it's much thinner than the chocolate one gets with a Cadbury Creme Egg. The disadvantage of the thin layer of creme is that you don’t really taste it, its too thin to really ad anything to the cookie other than tying it to the Cadbury Creme Egg brand. I'd say that this treat is tasty enough, but I wouldn't say that it's better, or even a suitable replacement for the regular Cadbury Creme Egg. There's just something missing from these cookies. You don’t get the fun of biting into a Cadbury Creme Eggs and having it poor goo all over your fingers.

These are fun, but they're not exactly Cadbury Creme Eggs.
