The Amount Of Sugar In A Cadbury Creme Egg Will Make Your Stomach Hurt Just By Looking At It

For many Americans seeing Cadbury Creme Eggs in stores is a sign that the time to take the holiday lights down for Easter is just around the corner. Ever since the iconic chocolate treat made its way across the pond to the United States, it has been embraced by sweet-toothed fans across the country.

The Creme Egg isn’t very large so it’s easy to overindulge, and every year, we all end up eating more of the delicious Easter treat than we’re ever willing to admit.

Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but it may be time to start counting how many Cadbury Creme Eggs you consume because they’re alarmingly bad for you.

A Creme Egg contains sugar, milk, glucose syrup, cocoa butter, invert sugar syrup, dried whey (milk), cocoa mass, vegetable fats (palm, shea), emulsifier (E442), dried egg white, flavourings and colour (paprika extract).

Ingredients in packaged food products are often listed in order by weight, which means that there is more sugar than anything else in these beloved chocolatey eggs. Additionally, glucose syrup and invert sugar syrup are also sweeteners used in the treat.

In fact, each Creme Egg contains 26 grams of sugar, which equals to roughly six teaspoons. To drive the point home, one woman posted a photo to Facebook that shows just how much sugar is in each egg, and it’s not an exaggeration when I say that it is way too much.

Wait till you see it…

New Peeps Flavors Revealed, And Where You Can Actually Find Them

Peeps are a classic Easter treat, and while I don’t personally see the appeal of a marshmallow covered in sugar, apparently people actually enjoy eating them. I’d take a bag of Mini Eggs over Peeps any day, but I digress.

Usually, Peeps come in three flavors: pink, yellow, and blue. YES I am attributing color to flavor, because that’s the only defining factor between the treats. Last year at Easter, they tried to revamp their popular snack by teaming up with Oreos to make a Peeps flavored cookie.

The new flavor of cookie hit in March 2017, just in time for the Easter season. Because nothing says Easter like an artificially flavored cookie that uses artificial flavor to replicate an artificial flavor. They looked like a child’s bubble-gum flavored glitter toothpaste between two cookies, but people still ate them.

The cookies reportedly turned one customer’s poop bright pink, while others had pink spit.

“My roommate ate a whole pack of Oreo Peeps and left a pink stain in the toilet,” claims one Twitter user.

“My spit looks like Pepto-Bismol,” said another, hours after eating the cookies.

“This is the type of food dye where an hour later, when I went to brush my teeth, IT TURNED MY TOOTHBRUSH PINK,” said an online food reviewer.

So let’s hope that they’ve learned their lesson when rolling out these eight new flavors.
