Welcome to Day #7 of Cadbury Chocolate Theme Week.
The first Cadbury chocolate eggs debuted in 1875. They were Easter Eggs. Today's cream-filled milk chocolate eggs looked like Easter eggs. However, these "Screme" eggs were designed for another big chocolate holiday: Halloween.
The hollow chocolate eggs were swaddled in black, purple and green foil, and contained sweet, scary green-colored creme filling. Eeeek. Good fun and tasty sweetness.
*According to the Cadbury website: "The first Cadbury Easter egg was made in 1875. The earliest eggs were made with dark chocolate, and had a smooth, plain surface. They were filled with sugar-coated chocolate drops known as 'dragees'. Later Easter eggs were decorated and had their plain shells enhanced with chocolate piping and marzipan flowers."
