What rubbish, you eat them whole

Creme eggs


A Cadbury’s worker has revealed the “correct” way to eat a Creme Egg – and it involves licking out the filling.

Shaheed Khattak, a systems maintenance engineer at the Cadbury factory in Bournville, Birmingham, said you firstly have to bite off the top of the popular chocolate treat.

Unlike people who write posts for blogs, since when has a systems maintenance engineer been an expert at anything except system maintenance?


He explained that you then have to eat out the centre, before eating the rest of the shell on its own, the Daily Mail reports.

Speaking to the HuffPost, Shaheed said: “Who are these people out there eating them whole? You’re asking for death by Creme Egg.

What a wuss.


“You have to bite the top, eat out the centre and then eat the shell on its own. Obviously.”

End of quote:

Obviously not. Obviously, you stick the whole thing in your mouth and crunch down. That way you get the delicious taste sensation of the chocolate mixed with the liquid filling. Any other way is sacrilege.

The same principle applies to sushi. Dip it in soy, then put the whole thing, in the mouth, at once. That way you get to enjoy the full taste. I just don’t get people who insist on eating it nibble by nibble and watching as the whole thing falls apart, tuna, avocado and all.

Now there are exceptions. For example, the correct way to eat an Oreo is to split it in two and lick the icing on each side, and then eat the rest of the biscuit. Same of course applies to Shrewsburies.


Creme Eggs are only available to buy from January to Easter each year, despite being produced all year round.

End of quote:

Happy Easter, everyone.
