Cadbury Egg Flurries: Thanks Easter Bunny, Baulk, Baulk

I recently spotted this piece about different flurries from around the world on StumbleUpon and it got me super excited! It's always fun to see what people in different countries are eating. Just like in the States, many of these flurries are simply composed of ice cream and candy. But, wait, this isn't your regular run of the mill American candy. This is foreign candy!! Who isn't fascinated with the sugar buying habits of our distant relations?? Who doesn't make a beeline for the candy store the minute they step on foreign soil?? Okay, maybe I'm the only one who does that. Honestly, though, I was most fascinated by two very familiar Easter favorites that have found their way into flurries in the UK and Canada: Cadbury Crème Eggs and Cadbury Mini Eggs.

The mini eggs have always been one of my favorite Easter treats and while I've outgrown my childhood love of the classic cream eggs, I'm still extremely curious as to what fake yolk and vanilla ice cream tastes like! Sounds like a future dessert project to me. Click here to see the complete list of foreign flurries.

p.s. In case anyone was wondering, I don't support McDonald's in any way, but I couldn't let this one go without a post!

No fair! Maybe it is time to start a letter campaign to have them available here!

Ha ha. Yeah, I felt that was a necessary addition! :-)

whew! all those cool international flavours! I think I'd like to try the oreo and matcha flurry...but I'll have to get me to a McD's to try the cadbury egg flurries soon seeing as I'm in Canada! I must admit though, I'm partial to oreo cookie blizzards from Dairy Queen. They rock!

Wow, they look so yummy! I love Cadbury eggs.

And no, you're not alone. I go straight for the candy when I travel!

I first saw the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry in about 2002 in the UK, but what I found most interesting was that they didn't make them out of straight up creme eggs - they had a container of broken up chocolate and a container of fondant. Good way to get it consistent!
