How are Cadbury creme eggs made ?

Inside the Willy Wonka-style chocolate factory where 1.5m creme eggs are made EVERY DAY
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2606766/How-MAKE-Cadbury-Inside-Willy-Wonka-style-chocolat...
I wonder if the employees are searched when leaving the factory ?

I worked at the Trebor Basset's factory in a previous existence many many moons ago. Their policy on such matters is eat what you like!
They found that to work much better than banning it as a rule as less stock went in staff members mouths and pockets. I did notice a lot of the long-serving staff had problems with diabetes or bad teeth though :S
The only permanent effects that job had on me is that I can't even look at a Jelly Baby now, totally put off. Too much too soon!

That seems to be the default for sweet factories, let them eat as much as they want. They soon get fed up with it  Cheesy
Never been a great sweet eater myself and now with diabetes I just can't  Angry I have the odd square of dark chocolate but that's about it. SWMBO on the other hand used to go through a bag a night, now she is also diabetic, she has had to drop them and switch to sugar free sweets, not many of them about though  Wink

As a young lad, I had a friend who's Mum worked at the Jaffa Cake Factory !!!
Just about every month she would bring home a couple of boxes of Jaffa Cake mis-shapes, one for myself and family.
The cost !! Two shillings per large box.....

Re: How are Cadbury creme eggs made ?

I used to love Cadbury creme eggs but they do get a bit boring after a while. Then they came up with the caramel eggs which are even better!
Unfortunately I now can't eat any of them  Angry I used to be a committed chocoholic but these days I can't touch the stuff.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

You know I thought i was imagining it the last time I had one but you're right. Mind you I've cut down on so much sugar these days everything tastes a bit sickly. Weird that.. total sugarholic for years and now i dislike it - how does that work?Huh

According to the Cadbury website - http://www.cadbury.co.nz/products/easter/cadbury-creme-egg.aspx?p=3629
[quote=Cadbury website]You're probably wondering just how we make a Cadbury Creme Egg®.
Ask our chocolatiers that very question, and they'll answer, ‘chocolate chickens, of course’.
Believe them or not, you'll find they taste fantastic

Not strictly true.
Two shillings in old money, today, allowing for RPI increase, would be worth around £1.75p to £2.00p
The equivalent of £2 per large box back then would be about right.
