The Cadbury Creme Eggs were always the prized possession in the Easter basket. Others could have their “Peeps” and jellybeans. I treasured the chocolate eggs which contained liquid sugar, all wrapped neatly in a colorful foil package. In fact, I loved them so much, I actually tried to save a few of them to make the bounty last for at least a few weeks after Easter. The small hollow chocolate delights would soon be forgotten, but the Cadbury Creme Egg was special.
The ritual around the Cadbury Creme Egg was as important to me as the joy in consuming it.
