One fan of the sweet treat took to Twitter to share: “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?”
Another said: “I have a question. What is the goo made from in a Creme Egg?”
Let’s take a look…
What’s the ‘goo’ in a Creme Egg made from?
Well as it’s super sweet you probably won’t be surprised to hear that the soft fondant contains sugar.
According to the website, each 40g egg contains 177kcal, 6.1g of fat, 3.7g saturates, 0.06g salt and 26.5g of sugar.
The inside is supposed to mimic the inside of an actual egg, to create a fake yolk and egg white.
And funny enough the ingredients list includes dried egg whites.
They are sugary, and the NHS actually advises anyone over the age of 11 to limit their daily intake of sugar to 30g.
The company has spent a whopping £70million on Creme Eggs annually to keep up with our love of them.
Cadbury said: “Cadbury Creme Egg is the most popular and over 500 million Creme Eggs are made every year with about two thirds of that number being enjoyed in the UK.
“That is 3.5 Cadbury Creme Eggs for every person in this country to enjoy.”
