We have great news! The Cadbury Oreo Cream Eggs that you have been dreaming about are on their way to the U.S., so you can go ahead and cancel your trip to Canada. Surprisingly, the actual name of the Cadbury product is, “Cadbury Dairy Milk Egg ‘n’ Spoon Oreo”, and you’ll be able to get your hands on one as early as next month. The Oreo cream eggs are set to roll out nationwide mid-February, get them in large or mini eggs. (or as we suggest, both!)
The eggs are filled with what appears to be Oreo cream and bits of crunchy cookies—like your favorite cookies and cream ice cream, but in egg form. Unlike the simple foil wrappers of traditional Cadbury eggs, the Oreo egg packaging is made of harder plastic, to protect its valuable contents.
The Oreo eggs have actually been on Canadian shelves since last year, but hadn’t really made a splash until recently, when they took off on social media. Now jealous U.S. Cadbury connoisseurs are trying to figure out how to get their hands on a few (dozen).
On Jan. 6, Instagram user JunkBanter posted a few photos of the drool-worthy treats. The post, mourning the lack of Oreo-filled eggs on this side of the border, already has more than 10,000 likes.
The Canadians aren’t even the only ones hoarding all the sandwich cookie goodness. Sugar lovers in the U.K. have been able to buy Oreo Cadbury eggs for more than a year now. They even have a choice between large and mini versions of the treats.
Australia also has its own version, although the Aussie one is filled with vanilla mousse instead of cookie cream.
Meanwhile, those of us in the U.S. will have to stick to filling our Easter baskets with the same old original, caramel and chocolate versions of the treat. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of those, but now we know what we’re missing.
